The Markets Will Collapse As Economic Realities Sink In

Stock-Markets / Financial Crash Jan 30, 2017 - 06:03 AM GMT

By: Graham_Summers

Stock-Markets

Well the final data is in and Janet Yellen’s “hot” economy is a disaster.

The US finished 2016 with GDP growth of 1.6%.

This is flat out embarrassing. And it confirms what we have suspected all along: that the 3Q16 numbers were completely fabricated in an excel spreadsheet for political purposes.


This game is run every election cycle. This time around it was just worse than usual.

By the way, the 4Q16 GDP numbers were largely generated by accounting gimmicks as well. Without the inventory buildup and healthcare (Obamacare) real GDP growth was 0.7%.

Put another way, without companies stockpiling stuff and Government mandated socialism, real GDP was barely positive.

Let’s be blunt. The last 8 years were an economic disaster. End of story.

This is not a political attack. This is an attack of this fantasy land nonsense that somehow the numbers are GOOD.

Let’s run down the last 8 years in numbers.

Since 2009, the US debt has risen by $9 trillion, doubling.

Bear in mind, this debt increase occurred despite record tax hauls from 2013 onwards.

Put another way, even while taxes raised more money than ever before, the Government still found a way to grow the debt to the fastest pace in history..

The wonks like to point out that 11 million jobs were created during this time period.

But with the debt increase this comes to ~$900K spent per job created.

If your idea of success is spending $900K to create a single job… with the odds being that the job is part-time (94% of all job creation were in part-time positions), you should not be allowed anywhere near the economics profession or any kind of Government advisory role.

Again, the math process, point blank, states that the last 8 years were an economic disaster. Sure, if you live in a Keynesian echo chamber where you don’t get fired no matter how wrong you are, this looks fine.

Anyone who ran any business like this would have been fired or gone bankrupt LONG ago.

The markets are barely holding up, but this won’t last much longer. The S&P 500 is on thin ice. And now that Dow 20,000 has been obtained, the door is open to a 10% correction in stocks if not worse.

These people are going to get taken to the cleaners.

On that note, I’ve alerted subscribers of my Private Wealth Advisory newsletter to SIX market hedges that will produce double digit winners as the market drops.

As I write this ALL of them are up, making us money… while 99% of investors pile into stocks… and missing out.

You can get access to these six inflation plays… and start receiving my real-time trade alerts, for just $0.98.

In the last two years, we’ve outperformed the S&P 500 by 300%… and with 86% of our trades making money, ours is the single most profitable track record out there.

Best of all, you can explore Private Wealth Advisory  for 30 days for just $0.98.

If at any point, you decide Private Wealth Advisory is not for you, just drop us a line and we’ll issue a FULL REFUND, no questions asked.

But with weekly gains of 14%, 21%, even 41% I know you’ll stay with us. It’s a no brainer… you’re beating the market AND making money for yourself just by following my targeted “buy” and “sell” trade alerts.

To take out a 30 day trial subscription to Private Wealth Advisory for just $0.98…
