25 States Have Run Out Of Unemployment Money And 15 More Are On The Verge Of Running Out

UnemploymentOne aspect of the current economic collapse that has not been widely reported is the extreme difficulty that most state unemployment insurance funds are facing. At this point, 25 state unemployment insurance funds have gone broke and the Department of Labor estimates that 15 more state unemployment funds will likely go broke within two years and need massive loans from the federal government just to keep going.

So how bad are things out there?

Indiana state Representative David Niezgodski was recently very blunt about the status of Indiana’s unemployment program….

“Our system was absolutely broke.”

State unemployment funds are generally separate from the general budgets of most states.  When these funds do go broke, usually there are two solutions that are considered.  Either unemployment benefits are cut or payroll taxes are increased.

But now many states have resorted to borrowing billions upon billions of dollars from the federal government to keep their programs going.  In fact, states have borrowed a total of 24 billion dollars from the federal government up to this point.

But there is a huge problem.

Unemployment is not going away any time soon.

For decades, U.S. corporations have been allowed to ship good jobs overseas and now everyone is looking around and wondering where all the jobs went.

The truth is that they are gone, and as the U.S. economy continues to collapse things are going to get even worse.

For example, the mayor of Detroit recently said that the real unemployment rate in his city is around 50 percent.

Are you starting to get the picture?

Meanwhile, the U.S. federal government raised the debt ceiling to 12.5 trillion dollars just before they left for Christmas, and there are reports that they will soon be raising it to 14 trillion.

Peter Schiff discusses this latest action by Congress and also addresses the fact that the U.S. federal government is now guaranteeing all losses by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in his latest video….

Is The World About To Experience A Devastating Economic Collapse?

Is the world about to experience an absolutely crippling economic collapse?  That is the conclusion that we have come to after years of research.  The truth is that the world economic system is essentially a mountain of debt based on paper money that is backed up by nothing.  History has shown that any economy based on debt and paper money will always fall apart in the end – especially when greed and corruption are huge factors in the equation as they are today.

In particular, the United States finds itself in a massive economic mess.  It was once the greatest creditor nation on earth, but now it is the biggest debtor in the history of the world.  It blows the mind to think that the “richest nation in the world” has become the nation with the most debt in the history of the planet in just one short generation.

But rather than learning the lessons of the past, this current administration is making the long-term economic problems far worse by spending American taxpayer dollars as if they were monopoly money.  In an effort to “stimulate the economy” and “bail out” troubled financial institutions, the current administration has put future generations in so much debt that it is basically mathematically impossible for them to ever get out of it.

Not that U.S. corporations and financial institutions are doing any better.  They have created a financial black hole known as “derivatives” that threatens to destroy the entire financial system at any moment.  Most large U.S. corporations are either so highly leveraged or have so much exposure to derivatives (or both) that even a slight shift in the economic winds can capsize many of them.

Of course we all know about how much of a mess American consumers find themselves in.  Credit card debt has absolutely exploded this decade and the majority of Americans now find themselves living month to month.  Personal bankruptcies and mortgage defaults continue to set all-time record after all-time record.  Millions of Americans are losing their jobs and millions of Americans are losing their homes as the economy continues to implode.

So is there hope for the future?

No.

The U.S. government continues to go into debt so fast that it is absolutely mind blowing.  Pension funds from coast to coast are broke.  Banks are failing at a frightening rate.  Millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas for decades and they simply are not coming back.  Without good jobs, the American middle class cannot support the bizarre debt spiral that has kept the U.S. economy going for so long.

What is ultimately going to happen is that the financial authorities will flood the money supply with tons of cash in an effort to “print” our way out of the economic crisis.  But all that will do is cause hyperinflation and will absolutely destroy the value of the dollar.  All of the accumulated wealth of the American people will disintegrate before their eyes as their dollars quickly become worthless.

So, no, the future is not pretty.

And that is what we will be documenting on this website.

A global economic collapse is coming and it is going to rip the world apart.

You better get ready.
