21 New Numbers That Show That The Global Economy Is Absolutely Imploding

Earth At Night - Public DomainAfter a series of stunning declines through the month of January and the first half of February, global financial markets seem to have found a patch of relative stability at least for the moment.  But that does not mean that the crisis is over.  On the contrary, all of the hard economic numbers that are coming in from around the world tell us that the global economy is coming apart at the seams.  This is especially true when you look at global trade numbers.  The amount of stuff that is being bought, sold and shipped around the planet is falling precipitously.  So don’t be fooled if stocks go up one day or down the next.  The truth is that we are in the early chapters of a brand new economic meltdown, and I believe that all of the signs indicate that it will continue to get worse in the months ahead.  The following are 21 new numbers that show that the global economy is absolutely imploding…

#1 Chinese exports fell by 11.2 percent year over year in January.

#2 Chinese imports were even worse in January.  On a year over year basis, they declined a whopping 18.8 percent.

#3 It may be hard to believe, but Chinese imports have now plunged for 15 months in a row.

#4 In India, exports were down 13.6 percent on a year over year basis in January.

#5 In Japan, exports declined 8 percent in December on a year over year basis, while imports plummeted 18 percent.

#6 For the sixth time in six years, Japanese GDP growth has gone negative.

#7 In the United States, exports were down 7 percent on a year over year basis in December.

#8 U.S. factory orders have fallen for 14 months in a row.

#9 The Restaurant Performance Index in the United States has dropped to the lowest level that we have seen since 2008.

#10 This month the Baltic Dry Index fell below 300 for the first time ever.

#11 It is now cheaper to rent a 1,100 foot merchant vessel than it is to rent a Ferrari.

#12 Orders for Class 8 trucks in the United States dropped by 48 percent on a year over year basis in January.

#13 Due to a lack of demand for trucks, Daimler just laid off 1,250 U.S. workers.

#14 Even though Saudi Arabia and Russia have agreed to freeze oil production at current levels, the price of U.S. oil has still fallen below 30 dollars a barrel.

#15 It is being reported that 35 percent of all oil and gas companies around the world are at risk of falling into bankruptcy.

#16 According to CNN, 67 oil and gas companies in the United States filed for bankruptcy during 2015.

#17 The number of job cuts in the United States skyrocketed 218 percent during the month of January according to Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

#18 All over America, retail stores are shutting down at a stunning pace.  The following list of store closures comes from one of my previous articles

-Wal-Mart is closing 269 stores, including 154 inside the United States.

-K-Mart is closing down more than two dozen stores over the next several months.

-J.C. Penney will be permanently shutting down 47 more stores after closing a total of 40 stores in 2015.

-Macy’s has decided that it needs to shutter 36 stores and lay off approximately 2,500 employees.

-The Gap is in the process of closing 175 stores in North America.

-Aeropostale is in the process of closing 84 stores all across America.

-Finish Line has announced that 150 stores will be shutting down over the next few years.

-Sears has shut down about 600 stores over the past year or so, but sales at the stores that remain open continue to fall precipitously.

#19 The price of gold is enjoying its best quarterly performance in 30 years.

#20 Global stocks have fallen into bear market territory, which means that about one-fifth of all global stock market wealth has already been wiped out.

#21 Unfortunately for global central banks, they have pretty much run out of ammunition.  Since March 2008, central banks have cut interest rates 637 times and they have purchased a staggering 12.3 trillion dollars worth of assets.  There is not much more that they can do, and now the next great crisis is upon us.

Without any outside influences, the global economy and the global financial system will continue to rapidly fall apart.

But if we do have a major “black swan event” take place, that could cause the bottom to fall out at any moment.

In particular, I am deeply concerned about the possibility that World War III could be sparked in the Middle East.  In an article that I published earlier today entitled “Turkey Is Asking The United States To Take Part In A Ground Invasion Of Syria“, I included a quote from Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu that reveals just how eager Turkey and Saudi Arabia are for war to begin…

Some countries like us, Saudi Arabia and some other Western European countries have said that a ground operation is necessary,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told Reuters in an interview.

However, this kind of action could not be left to regional powers alone. “To expect this only from Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar is neither right nor realistic. If such an operation is to take place, it has to be carried out jointly, like the (coalition) air strikes,” he said.

The Turks and the Saudis very much want the United States to take a leading role in any ground invasion of Syria, but the Obama administration is not likely to do that.

So we shall see if the Turks and the Saudis are willing to go ahead without us.  Let us hope that they do not decide to invade Syria, because that could start the biggest war in the Middle East that any of us have ever seen.

Unfortunately, Turkey is already attacking.

Turkey has been shelling Kurdish and Syrian military positions in northern Syria for four days in a row even though the Obama administration has been urging them to stop.

The first month and a half of 2016 has already been quite chaotic, and the stage is set for global events to greatly accelerate during the months ahead.

Sadly, the mainstream media in the United States is largely ignoring the preparations for a ground invasion of Syria, and they keep telling us that the global economy is going to be just fine, so most ordinary Americans are going to be absolutely blindsided by what is about to happen.

          The only thing that is making a killing is the laughter in the room whenever you talk.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            I dont think this guy can help himself….just like under alias SP2300ROFL he used to cut and past and then POST the daily financial talking points from Janney Montgomery Scott or one of the other financial planners lol AND POST it as his own……really funny

        • Mark

          That won’t last . You don’t understand true economics. Dow is a casino manipulated by nonsense. It will fall. Economics in the long run trumps. Anyone investing in this market is gambling. I look at the job market which is horrible and eventually when there is no money you collapse.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          what a joke yuk yuk yuk pretty funny gomer yup jethro yuk yuk

    • ALWAYSTOMORROW

      Okay. S&P to 2300 soon. Got it.

      Now I would be interested to hear your thoughts (guesses) on WTI crude and silver by 12/31/2016.

      • Jazz

        Oil will be back to $40 by year end. Silver will be at $20 by year end. Gold will be at $1200-$1300.

        • Rorschach

          and the laughter ensues whenever you talk.

        • Wiz

          I’m surprised someone as deluded as you can afford a good glass of such a common wiine. A good glass of cab sav would cost quite a lot. A glass of rubbish cab sav would be very cheap.

          • Rorschach

            The only thing he can afford is the moonshine that he brews right before he posts. That would explain the delusional posts and ranting that he does about how the stock market goes to new highs.

        • Rorschach

          You didn’t quit trolling or speaking about hilarious things you don’t understand.

    • Jim Clark

      Buy! Buy!! Buy!!! And laugh at the tin foil brigade that waste their money on MREs.

      • Jazz

        Buy buy buy is right. Gobble up them shares. Buy on the dips. Remember buy low, sell high. This market’s got legs. Put on your rally caps kids!

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        Jazz to Jazz lol…………….

    • Cicero

      Glad to see you’re back Jazz!!! Tell the cold hard truth – there is no collapse! Bunch of losers on this site all crying wolf LOL!!!!!!!111

      • Jazz

        The markets go up go down. We has a little correction now we are ready to rally. The economy is getting better and we will see lots of sunshine ahead!

        • SunnyFlaSnotress

          Walmart’s been up 6-8% since Kim & Michael have been going off about it.. Always the store closings mentioned, never the store openings.

          • Jazz

            Yeah you got that! Wally-Fart is on a tear. It is kicking hiney and taking names. The discount stores were way oversold.

          • Rorschach

            Sunny did you roll out of bed or did you need a dump-truck or forklift to assist you?

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Rorschach, you’re a nobody.. just like your icon.

          • Rorschach

            That’s cute but it’s too bad that nobody ever takes you seriously. Now you need a rest you used up all your mental capacity with that dimwitted comment.

        • Rorschach

          “We has a little correction now we are ready to rally.”

          Uh oh looks like you need to go back to school. And to think you offer financial advise. Now that is hilarious. Proven troll.

        • Mark

          Sounds like JAZZ took ebonics class instead of English grammar class. Ghetto talk does not land you a degree or job unless you are a pro athlete with an IQ of 2. You get it Holmes

      • Rorschach

        Aka Jazz 2.0 or Jazz’s split personality.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          Gotcha thanks…..

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        And what site are you on PRAYTELL….

    • The GOOSE

      Yeah today, but you’ve been taking a world class beating so far this year. FYI

      • Jazz

        Rofl. You haven’t seen my account Holmes. It’s all good! Markets are going be up big again today! 3 days in a row duck boy. That’s called a sustainable rally!

        • Rorschach

          “3 days in a row duck boy. That’s called a sustainable rally!”

          In school were you always given a dunce cap?

        • Mark

          You must have been sleeping in you high school econ class and must be an Obummer fan Holmes. Remember last week and all the negative losses. That can change in a heartbeat. Lets see what the labor stats say after Feb. Lots of layoffs announced. Cardone Industries in Philly just announced 1300 layoffs effective May. They are moving to Mexico. This has been happening all over the country. You need to understand the concepts of all the financial engineering that is manipulated in the markets. Buybacks and short selling manipulation.

    • RTL89

      Yep, they were up huge today with absolutely tremendous rallies. But that’s to be expected when the entire system is run by oligarchs who intervene in the “free market”, but who cares about that kind of stuff, right? Keep cheering.

      • Jazz

        Oh the Bulls are cheering as they are beating the Bears. This rally is for real. Lots of volume as people realize the worst is behind us.

        • RTL89

          Yeah ok, I’ll see ya’ in March when the markets fall right through the floor

    • Artemis

      I’m not seeing a bull market at all, my friends are being laid off one by one right now, so far 50% of my friends are out of work now. Two years ago everyone was making great money and employed. The PPT shoring up share prices doesn’t mean the economy is good.

      • Jazz

        Well when you only have 2 friends and 1 gets laid off, I guess technically 50% of your friends “are out of work”. All of my friends are working and saying things have never been better. It’s the land of milk and honey. Times are good. Like the 90s, only better. That’s why the Fed was confident enough to raise rates. We don’t wanna grow too fast and let inflation eat our lunch.

        • fwalker000

          Roflmao

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            Talking to oneself is not a good sign….

        • Wiz

          Raising rates was a massive mistake, and one that will be difficult to reverse. The only question is whether it will be reversed before or after a crash.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            The rates were hardly raised….all BS. One tenth of one percent is what it works out to be…….golly gee Gomer yuk har har

        • Rorschach

          ” It’s the land of milk and honey.”

          Only in your dreams delusional troll.

        • Mark

          Sounds to me that JAZZ is an Obummer fan that leans a little to the left. All uneducated morons look at two stats which are manipulated. Unemployment U3 and the DOW. All nonsense stats when it come to true economics. The only one making money in the markets are the top 1% and Wall Street thugs that manipulate the system. See JAZZ most of the average folks that invest are in the retail end like you me. The thugs on Wall street and 1% are buying at wholesale and selling at retail. We buy at retail and sell at wholesale. Why do you think the Fed is manipulating interest rates. They want everyone in so the thugs on Wall have more suckers like you buying at retail and selling at wholesale. The more money in the market the more they make on you and the less in your pocket when things turn bad.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          The fed raised rates about 1/10 of 1 percent………all bs

      • REALIST

        You need better friends.

    • Jazz

      Lmao x 100. Bern Baby Bern will be our next presidente. He is giving away free everything and the people are eating it up hook line and sinker. We will print, print, print and have debts to infinity, but it’s all gonna be just fine.

      • Wiz

        For someone who has a hundred arses, debts to infinity seems about right.

      • Rorschach

        “We will print, print, print and have debts to infinity, but it’s all gonna be just fine.”

        You can print yourself all the way to hyperinflation and deflation you moronic troll.

        • GreatHornedScowl

          “the people are eating it up hook line and sinker” …that phrase ought to clue you in that Jazz is using sarcasm to ridicule Bernie’s plan & his supporters.

          • Rorschach

            Obviously you have no experience with Jazz and his trolling behavior or even his other comments in this article. Did you even bother to look at them or are you trying to justify and defend the troll?

          • GreatHornedScowl

            Touché . No, I’ve not read anything else that Jazz has written, but if, as you indicate, he/she is being literal, then he/she is incredulously dumb, hence my assumption he/she must be using sarcasm. But then, Bernie’s supporter’s are that dumb.

          • Rorschach

            I don’t think it’s sarcasm especially considering that Jazz has been trolling with the same behavior for years now. Think back to 2010/2011 when that troll first appeared.

      • Rick

        Are you watching? The Bern can win 95% of the vote, but the delegates go to the Commie candidate, not the socialist candidate. Hillary and her ilk will never allow the Bern to get in their way. They don’t have time for the lengthy transition from socialism to communism, so are pushing the communist agenda and candidate with everything they have.

        • BB

          Actually the magic numbers for Bernie are ~ 70% of the vote. 717 Superdelegates out of ~4450 total delegates will skew it only 20%

          • Rick

            Good to know, but I think you missed my point. You may be too young to remember the arkancide project, but Hillary and Bill orchestrated quite a killing spree spanning 30 years. The Bern can be intimidated, he’s not a noble character. Point, even if he wins, he loses! Check mate!

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Rick is right! Hillary will win! 😀

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        Jazz you are leading people astray with this post……we all have children and grandchildren….there is no FREE LUNCH the bill comes due.

        • GreatHornedScowl

          “the people are eating it up, hook line and sinker” …that phrase ought to clue you in that Jazz is using sarcasm to ridicule Bernie’s plan & supporters.

          • Rorschach

            Copy and paste. You must be a Jazz fanboy.

          • GreatHornedScowl

            Not a fanboy, just saving effort while replying to a second commenter. “But it’s all going to be fine” …seems like a Bernie supporter would say ‘It will all be great’ rather than simply ‘fine’ (acceptable). Seems odd language for someone who isn’t sarcastic, but you seem to know his/her comment history; I certainly don’t.

          • Rorschach

            Ok fair enough.

          • Jazz

            Lmao almost everything I post is pure sarcasm. You earn a gold star :)

          • Rorschach

            To learn how to post with Sarcasm requires the proper mental capacity to do so Jazz. That’s not something you are even remotely capable of.

  • Artemis

    Interesting timing, a big war in the middle east, just as the economy is tanking. I wonder if the war will be blamed for the collapse, or if the war will be a distraction from the collapse?

    • SunnyFlaSnotress

      I’d like to think that Turkey is shooting itself in the foot, and that the Saudi can gain some cooperation with Syria. I don’t envision a full out war like Michael does, but who knows.

      Probably both.

  • Wizard of Aus

    Job losses are accumulating here in Australia. Just today, 1100 jobs are in limbo at a steel works plant in South Australia due to low commodity prices and excess supply in China.

    • Jazz

      Lmao. 1100 out of 23+ million people. That’s a drop in the bucket. The weak companies fail while the strong ones rise. That unfortunately is the nature of life. Look at the jungle. The lion is the king.

      • Orac4Prez

        In fact, Chinese steel mills (with the Chinese government backing) is dumping steel. The Europeans have placed bans on some Chinese steel imports, but the Australian government hasn’t. It might cost China in the short term, but if they kill off enough of the competitors they can charge a lot more. In fact China will be killing themselves – look at their environmental records.

        • Steeve Girard

          Yes, China has a poor environmental policy.

          • TheLulzWarrior

            But the ones saying that are the Mainstream Medias.

          • John J. Henesy

            YOU THINK? IT WAS JUST RELEASED THAT 80% OF THE COUNTRIES ENTIRE WATER SUPPLY IS CONTAMINATED

        • Rick

          Their environmental record means nothing. America is the only country held to the UN treaties on environmental standards. Soon we will all be living in those spacious 200 square foot apartments in NYC, And paying twice what we now pay for 3000 suare foot homes. And by God we will like it!

        • Priszilla

          Australia was happy as long as they exported iron ore to China. What did they think China is doing with that?

          • Orac4Prez

            I have several friends/colleagues in China. The funny thing is that the Chinese gov. have hoarded up enough iron (iron billets) to be fully self sufficient for years! At one site, all of the production went to storage during the GFC. I guess its their strategic reserve. Plus they have spare cities for any displace people should a war break out between the US and its allies.

          • Craig Watts

            China is also holding onto its chromium reserves, and cutting its exports to other steel producing countries, including the U.S.

      • Rorschach

        Too bad you are the flea on the lion Jazz. Now stop pretending and go back to being the miserable failure you are.

      • Marty Mann

        Yeah the BDI has climbed 3 consecutive days and markets are rallying again. Corporate stocks are skyrocketing and will surpass where they began to fall. The railroad I work for is now beginning to pull more intermodal/container trains. I’m already seeing more ships departing and arriving on our eastern seaport. I was almost convinced this country was sinking but now I see we are being blest again by God almighty. Thank you God.

        • Clueless in Seattle

          You sir, are retarded. Blest? What is that word. Do you mean ‘Eastern Seaboard’? You are clueless.

          • Marty Mann

            You’re the one with the name clueless. Blest is a word, look it up in your dictionary. Do you know what a dictionary is Clueless?

          • Cynthia

            It shows up in Shakespeare and other 16th- and 17th-century literature all the time. It’s just an alternate spelling for “blessed”; it indicates one syllable vs. two. Sometimes “bless-ed” needs two syllables for the poetry to stay in rhythm.

      • Dabron

        Keep in mind that since the US is 10 times arger, 1100 laid off in Australia would have the same impact as 11,000 laid off in the United States. Also, this is just one company. Layoffs have been happening in all sectors for the last few months incuding the Gas, Coal and Iron Mining sectors, just to point out some of the obvious sectors.

      • Craig Watts

        Layoffs trend to have a snowball effect as well…
        Company A cuts production and lays off 1,100 workers, and then stops sending out as many products, cuts its purchases of raw materials and components with the end result being a loss of income and fewer taxes paid.
        Those 1,100 workers now have less disposable income and cut their purchases as well.
        Down the line, every company who depended on Company A’s business will cut its production, reduce its purchases, and possibly layoff even more workers, who also find themselves in the same position as the other 1,100.
        At the end of the line comes the government, which finds its cost for human services rising in the face of decreasing tax revenues.
        It’s never just a drop in the bucket.

  • Mad Monkey

    I have been reading the last few days of housing bubbles starting to burst. Sydney house prices have fallen by 3%, London luxury housing prices have dropped and in the oil rich ares of Canada prices are tanking. I see lots of ‘bubbles’ simultaneously popping. A tipping point will be breached and everything just comes crashing down.

    • Jazz

      Oh no! Home prices down 3%? Must be a depression. Lol. The housing market is as steady as she comes with ultra low rates and solid growth. Whoever said there was another real estate bubble is either a fool or a liar.

      • Wiz

        In the UK, to be able to afford the mortgage repayments on an average loan, you need to be earning over £80,000.

        • REALIST

          You are not looking in the right area. There are plenty of affordable houses. You need to peak Hindu or Cantonese.

      • Rorschach

        ” Whoever said there was another real estate bubble is either a fool or a liar.”

        So you are saying you are a sane and normal person? Nope that can’t be you are a miserable troll and you honestly deserve to be dropped off a skyscraper.

      • Mark

        Low interest rates to draw potential home buyers that can’t afford or really have money for a house. Same old story in the housing market. Everyone borrowing because they have no money. Why do you think interest rates are low??? Hmmmmmm

      • KITT_vs_KARR

        Rates are lowest to attract people into borrowing. If growth in the industry were solid, buyers plentiful, supply plentiful, etc. then rates would not be “ultra” low. The fact that rates have to be ultra low is indicative of a problem. The issue is not whether a problem exists but the extent of the problem. Right now housing supply remains tight as few builders are taking on the risk they once did and aren’t building at the same rate they once did. They aren’t building at the same rate for fear they’ll end up losing their business in another downturn. To say that things are “steady as she comes” isn’t a vote of confidence but of stagnation.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          Well said sir…..gold star !

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        Ultra low interest rates are the prop holding up the 800 pd gorilla……

        The whole system is insolvent !

  • Wiz

    Isn’t Deutsche Bank more likely to be a Black Swan than Syria? I don’t see any way out for many continental banks. But Deutsche seems to be beyond saving. As is well known, its derivative book is nominally twenty times the value of German GDP. It clearly cannot be allowed to collapse, but I can’t, for the life of me, see how it can possibly be saved. It would sink the whole European economy if the damage was spread around national populations. Could it be America that is called upon to save Deutsche?

    • fwalker000

      An education on Exters Pyramid may resolve your confusion

      • Wiz

        How? Exter’s Inverted Pyramid proves how dodgy being inverted can be. Deutsche Bank is crippled by the immensity of the top layer of its own, rather memorable pyramid. How on earth can it be saved?

        Yes, and Jamie Dimon has proved how rock solid JP Morgan is by buying millions of its debt too. Also, I’ve just used one of my credit cards to pay off my overdraft, and I’ve told my bank manager I’m rock solid.

    I just moved to the city (for my front seat to the riots etc) so I started buying stuff from China again.. Hey, I’m doing MY part

    • Orac4Prez

      So you’re the one funding the new “manmade” Chinese islands in the South China Sea! Good to see you!

      • df NJ

        As if you could buy products from anywhere else but China. For 20 years now every US pro-labor bill written to address Chinese currency manipulation was shot down by Republicans in committee. Own it, Republican’s have destroyed our factories, our jobs, and consumer demand. No workers means no customers. Don’t you get it yet?????

        • Wiz

          Quite agree. When the rich have got all the money, everyone else has nothing to spend.

          • Rick

            Looks like you and df are talking 2 different groups. He said Rs, not the rich. Do you not think the unions and their leaders are rich? Which way do they generally vote? And over the past 20 years, the Ds have controlled congress just as often as the Rs. You let him off the hook. We need to get past this R vs. D crap. That has and will continue to destroy us!

        • Orac4Prez

          That’s OK. The rich have invested in Chinese companies, etc so they don’t mind where you spend your money as long as they don’t have to pay tax. You can find a few things made elsewhere…. like India and South Korea.

            Well said sir…….

          • df NJ

            I will agree the problems with our country are not rocket science. The lobbyists force the politicians to pass laws creating cartels and monopolies in exchange for campaign financing. When in this equation of politics does labor ever get a voice or have a bill passed in the favor of labor?

          • Rick

            df, you are a smart man. I couldn’t agree more. The lobbyists have absolutely killed our form of government. We might all try to get behind a program called “Gov at Home”. You’ve probably heard of it, and it makes total sense. Instead of us electing a Congress that will go to DC, let’s have them stay home and represent the people. Get to know reality in their own districts. Why make it easy for the lobbyists to fly into one city and see 20 key Congressmen in a week, and wine and dine at our expense. Rather, let’s make them fly to 20 different cities in a week to meet with the Representatives. And if they can manage that, which I doubt, then at least they will be spending their cash in our cities, and not DC.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          Not in Jersey City either. 3 out of 4 properties on the market. Are foreclosures

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            K could you share source info on that interesting point….

            I have a friend who lives in New Brunswick NJ who has not made a mortgage payment in 7 years. And the bank pays the ins and taxes, he frequently says I wonder how many of my neighbors are in same position.

            Obviously the number of houses with non performing loans must be huge….maybe not all area’s but some. Another NJ friend had over 3 years with no mortgage payments made in Wall Township NJ…..he told me how he used to plant flowers out front and he said same thing ” how many neighbors in the same boat”

          • df NJ

          • K

            Zillow is your best resource. Yes banks are leaving people in place in spite of lack of payments. In some cities, the pre foreclosure list is several pages long. What is happening, is banks made loans, far in excess of the properties value. Suspect these loans were made at peak. When everything was way overvalued. Now if they foreclose, and take the loss. They will start a downward trend in real estate prices. Which will happen anyway at some point. Also in some of the high tax areas, condo are going for half or less, of their true value. Why? They have yearly property tax in excess of 4500/00 dollars. When real estate crashes this time, it will be evn worse than last time.

          • Mark

            You could be right on this too. Just an observation. I know in PA property values have been down or flat also.

    Well, who has all the $$$, the CEOs. Heard an interesting fact on an economic podcast I was listening to by a professor of economics at a prestigious NYC university to describe the wealth that CEOs have amassed since the early 1980s. In 1982, CEOs could buy 84 homes to every 1 home bought by a middle class citizen in America. In 2016, CEOs can buy 844 homes to every 1 home purchased by a middle class citizen. This example succinctly in a nutshell screams income disparity between the heads of corporations and the citizens of America. Over the years, the disparity has reached unfathomable depths of inequality between workers and the corporate heads which in turn has led to the disappearance of the middle class.

    • fwalker000

      Seems about right as the average CEO likely worked 844 times harder than the average welfare recipient

      • Scott Comin

        They work? Not as hard as a welfare recipient!!! THEY ARE THE WELFARE RECIPIENT

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        The important income disparity is that between the middle class or average worker and CEO’s…..

        Without the middle class we do not have a country…..

        It wasn’t that long ago (50 years) that corporations and CEO’s were concerned about the people that worked for them!. Truthfully and genuinely concerned for them and their families…..

        But that was a long time ago when we were a Country !.

    We all agree that the whole thing is rigged, right? Even Bernie believes that. I see it like this: It won’t fall until the elite in Basel says it will fall. When everything is in place they will take it down and replace it with a world government and currency out of the ashes. Obama is being told to take the guns. It won’t matter as what has happened before will happen again. When “they” pull the rug out, the US government will stand by and let the US guns take out one another. They will let it happen. They let Ferguson happen, they let Black Lives Matter Happen, they are playing both sides against each other. Don’t you see it? I do.

  • Rick

    “What is about to happen” has already begun, and on many fronts.

Then they also allowed her to take out Scalia as a shot over the bow to Trump, or anyone else standing in the way of her Commie reform agenda. And the MSM and we pons and peasants run around plinking and plunking at our happy e-toys… Nothing to see here, move along. All is well because a judge named Cinderella told us so.

On the surface pretty much business as normal, there’s just a little more scrutiny of expense nothing that would make me think the US economy is in trouble?

        The CFR is the shadow government that really runs the country…..but I am not convinced as you state that Israel has this strong influence upon the CFR. I believe that Israel has some influence but not enough to affect outcome…..and there have been and are many examples of this.

      Let’s review. The Chinese peg the Yuan to the dollar 6 to 1. This means a CEO gets 6 starving slave wage workers for every 1 well paid industrial country worker. Over the last the 20 years every factory around the world has closed. China now makes everything. Now think about the following statement. No workers then no consumers. No consumers then no demand for Chinese products. Hmmmmmmm…..

  • df NJ

    The industrial countries have a demand crisis and the threat of deflation. We need better jobs with higher wages for the masses. I don’t what public policy would work but we need something.

    Ok,Ok,..I was talking to a director of college campus security systems the other day and as fellow watchmen on the wall(for over 20 years) we are both to the point of ok, let’s get it on let’s get this thing over with. We know it’s coming so let’s go, after having watched the prophetic signs get more and more intense (Birth pangs) it has to happen sooner or later so the sooner the better. But people(professing Christians) will say that they want to go on a vacation to such and such or watch their child graduate or some other such grand plan. I’d rather He come quickly because one second after He does your plans will mean nothing and I won’t have to read about stories like the latest about a man raping an 18 month old in a hotel and distributing the video to his friends.

    Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus…

      Agreed. I’m so sick of injustice.

      A man raped an 18 month old child, videotaped it and dispersed it like he was an outlet of Netflix? What is wrong with people?

  • dlewenz

    With USA GDP stuck in neutral since 2012 at 2.2-2.4
    percent and fourth qt at 0.7% I would
    say it is a safe bet that first QT will be negative or close to zero. With the
    massive debt burden on a global basis, we should see a significant increase in corporate defaults in the first qt
    and escalating into the second half of the year. Third QT, we will be right in the smack of a rescission.
    If war breaks out in the middle east as
    Michael has outlined all bets are off on what happens next.

    Listened to a recent Trump speech. He is deeply concerned with the worlds current financial condition. He went so far as to say if it is going to implode hopes it does so before he became President. Then he apoligized. Hope he is not having second thoughts about becoming President. Of all the candidates he is the only one with a sound financial background.

    • kautilya_in

      > sound financial background

      Is that even a thing among politicians?

      • usathoughts

        Since almost all are Lawyer Politicians the only thing they know about finance is a Client Billing Clock.

        I was in manufacturing for most of my working life. Would have to juice a few politicians every once in awhile. Can tell you the foreign politicians are the most corrupt. Ever hear the phrase, “have to pay to play”. It is known in every language on the planet.

        Get this… The politician & the business man can use the same exact words without understanding one another. Have experienced this on many occasions.

        I know first hand what Mr. Trump is going through in trying to comprehend political speak.

            I would like to wish you continued success.

            Like I told you before, it is nice to see someone who sees the positive things (glass 1/2 full as you say) and is doing well.

            My success pales in comparison to yours but I am doing just fine.

            Continue sharing your positive views.

    Hey – let’s cherry pick the news items that fit our narrative and see how that works for predicting anything.

    Especially hilarious – #19 – Gold is experiencing its best quarterly performance in 30 years.

    Of course – it’s only about $40 higher than a year ago, and $500 *lower* than 4 years ago, but focus on that last quarter! And how, exactly, does an increase in the price of gold signal anything bad for the economy?

    We can also group 14-16 (and possibly 11) together – oil stocks are very high right now, driving the price down. This is causing trouble for oil companies whose business model was based on oil being over $100 a barrel, but does anyone really expect that Exxon, BP, or Chevron are going under anytime soon?

    Same tune as every single year.

      Agreed. When I taught math, I could tell when the kids prayed! “Oh, God, let me PASS THIS TEST!”

      Math tests brought out the religious feeling of students more than foreign language (Spanish, German), English, or history. Not sure why, but my students in the other subjects just shrugged their shoulders and got to work when it was Test Day.

    TRUST is the #1 killer in the world. The #2 killer is Bulls@#t. The new world order aka the new world genocidal order was officially launched in 1990. What we are witnessing today is the effect of mass kill-off of consumers that began in 1990. Who are these consumers that were killed off, and continue to be slaughtered today? The unborn fetuses, babies and children who would now be 25 years old and younger, and would be significantly impacting our economy today. Add to this safe sex, same sex and no sex and the economic impact is what we are seeing play out today. There will be no good economic news as long as this hidden mass kill-off of babies and children continues. 2015 reached the 25 year milestone. The next milestone will be reached in half the time, 12.5 years from now. The mass kill-off global number will need to be twice that of the previous 25 years. Once we the people of planet earth allowed these murderers to kill with immunity beginning in 1990, there would be no turning back, our economic destiny going forward would be locked and boxed. It would be 15 years later [2005] before the first effects of baby killing would start showing up. It is now 2016 and demand is drying up all over the world, and it will continue to dry up. Its been said, “We can’t handle the truth.” So this comment will die right here on this post. Because its easier to just keep blaming it on e-commerce, debt, corruption, etc…

    • http://www.UrbanRadioArtists.com/ Killer Corporations

      Here’s a hint on where to look to find evidence of the above comment. Begin with two recent important lists: [1] list of corporate closures and layoffs, and [2] planned parenthood’s list of major corporate monetary donors. The question to ask yourself is why would the same corporations be on both lists? Why would they sponsor the killing of their future customers on one hand and then report the absence of these customers as the reason operations are losing money on the other? Case in point: Johnson & Johnson. Don’t they make baby products? To take this sick alliance a step further, pull PETA’s (the animal rights organization) list of corporate monetary donors. Now ask yourself why these same company’s are saving dogs and cats but slaughtering human fetuses? You can’t make this s@#t up. And you can’t make it make sense either.

  • RTL89

    “Currently, we are doing OK – not *great*, but measurably better (as a whole) than 7 years ago. We are getting about due for a recession (they hit every 5-10 years or so), and with the low price of oil and weak Chinese markets, I can see that happening sooner than later. On the other hand, I am betting that it will be relatively mild compared to ’08/’09 – and short-lived as well.”
    Oh spare me!!!!! Just spare me!!! You’re talking as if this is just a regular downturn . Regular downturns don’t cause the entire PLANET to cascade into increasingly long-term destitution with no way out except for the debt-based economic system to implode upon itself. Regular downturns also don’t consist of world central banks seriously exploring the idea of entering into negative interest rates. People like you are morons; it leads to me question whether you’re a fascist or if you’re just deliberately being a troll.

    • Eric Riley

      Well – if I end up having to hunt squirrels to feed my family in the next year, I will certainly agree with you that the planet has cascaded into long term destitution… Why do I think that isn’t really going to be the case?

      As for ‘negative interest rates’ – funny enough, the Fed raised the prime rate by a quarter of a percent in December, and expectations are that they are going to continue raising the rate over the next year.

      Of course- if you have any facts that might show I’m wrong, that’ll do a lot more than calling me names.

      • RTL89

        Would it be wrong for me to assume you’re American? Because I can just tell by how you group the whole global economy based on how “America” is doing, as if that’s any fair representation whatsoever. Bank of Japan just entered negative rates about 2 weeks ago; Canada is speculated to be the next country. Every country is falling like dominoes; yet just because the fascist corporation, that is America, is holding up the markets with preposterous quantitative easing programs and false hope, that this somehow transcends into a “good and stable economy”. Yes, the Fed raised rates in December.. and look what happened in the first trading week of 2016. They’ll do it again in March, and you’ll see what will happen. The entire planet is shouldering the debt that the U.s has accrued and just because it ahs tools to “prop it up” for a little while longer, this somehow indicates improvement to you. How can you be so naïve????

        • Eric Riley

          “every country is falling like dominoes”

          Well – except for the ones that aren’t.

          And how has the rest of the planet ‘shouldered US debts’?

          Let’s take a closer look at Japan then – yes, their central bank has set interest rates negative – an interesting move. However with inflation at 2.7% and unemployement at 3.6%, it’s hard to argue that Japan’s economy as a whole is falling into a sinkhole.

          I’m sorry you are living your life in paranoid fear – it must be exhausting, especially when your worst fears keep not happening.

          • RTL89

            Give me one country – even just ONE – that is NOT in trouble. The truth is, there isn’t one. The entire Eurozone is absolutely crippled. China, the world’s largest economy, is now bankrupt because it is investing all this money into building infrastructure and real estate that nobody can afford to buy. The U.S has borrowed money into existence to sustain its absolute elitist tendencies to think they are more privileged than other countries when they are not. This has resulted in gigantic bubbles being created. Somebody has to pay this back, but it’s kind ahrda to do that when there isn’t enough money in the entire world to pay it off. But no big deal, right?
            And you know what, it is exhausting. But you know what…. if you don’t acre, I don’t care. You and all the other trolls can go sit in your little fantasy land where everything is awesome. The rest of us will deal with reality. You’re just like everybody else who sat there in 2007 and said “nothing will happen”. How many times does disaster need to strike before you finally open your ignorant eyes?
