Serious Financial Trouble Is Erupting In Germany And Japan

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Stock Market Collapse - Public DomainThere are some who believe that the next great financial crash will not begin in the United States.  Instead, they are convinced that a financial crisis that begins in Europe or in Japan (or both) will end up spreading across the globe and take down the U.S. too.  Time will tell if they are ultimately correct, but even now there are signs that financial trouble is already starting to erupt in both Germany and Japan.  German stocks have declined 10 percent since July, and that puts them in “correction” territory.  In Japan, the economy is a total mess right now.  According to figures that were just released, Japanese GDP contracted at a 7.1 percent annualized rate during the second quarter and private consumption contracted at a 19 percent annualized rate.  Could a financial collapse in either of those nations be the catalyst that sets off financial dominoes all over the planet?

This week, the worst German industrial production figure since 2009 rattled global financial markets.  Germany is supposed to be the economic “rock” of Europe, but at this point that “rock” is starting to show cracks.

And certainly the civil war in Ukraine and the growing Ebola crisis are not helping things either.  German investors are becoming increasingly jittery, and as I mentioned above the German stock market has already declined 10 percent since July

German stocks, weighed down by the economic fallout spawned by the Ukraine-Russia crisis and the eurzone’s weak economy, are now down more than 10% from their July peak and officially in correction territory.

The DAX, Germany’s benchmark stock index, has succumbed to recent data points that show the German economy has ground to a halt, hurt in large part by the economic sanctions levied at its major trading partner, Russia, by the U.S. and European Union as a way to get Moscow to butt out of Ukraine’s affairs. The economic slowdown in the rest of the debt-hobbled eurozone has also hurt the German economy, considered the economic locomotive of Europe.

In trading today, the DAX fell as low as 8960.43, which put it down 10.7% from its July 3 closing high of 10,029.43 and off nearly 11% from its June 20 intraday peak of 10,050.98.

And when you look at some of the biggest corporate names in Germany, things look even more dramatic.

Just check out some of these numbers

The hardest hit sectors have been retailers, industrials and leisure stocks with sports clothing giant Adidas down 37.7pc for the year, airline Lufthansa down 27pc, car group Volkswagen sliding 23.6pc and Deutchse Bank falling 20.2pc so far this year.

Meanwhile, things in Japan appear to be going from bad to worse.

The government of Japan is more than a quadrillion yen in debt, and it has been furiously printing money and debasing the yen in a desperate attempt to get the Japanese economy going again.

Unfortunately for them, it is simply not working.  The revised economic numbers for the second quarter were absolutely disastrous.  The following comes from a Japanese news source

On an annualized basis, the GDP contraction was 7.1 percent, compared with 6.8 percent in the preliminary estimate. That makes it the worst performance since early 2009, at the height of the global financial crisis.

The blow from the first stage of the sales tax hike in April extended into this quarter, with retail sales and household spending falling in July. The administration signaled last week that it is prepared to boost stimulus to help weather a second stage of the levy scheduled for October 2015.

Corporate capital investment dropped 5.1 percent from the previous quarter, more than double the initial estimate of 2.5 percent.

Private consumption was meanwhile revised to a 5.1 percent drop from the initial reading of 5 percent, meaning it sank 19 percent on an annualized basis from the previous quarter, rather than the initial estimate of 18.7 percent, Monday’s report said.

For the moment, things are looking pretty good in the United States.

But as I have written about so many times, our financial markets are perfectly primed for a fall.

Other experts see things the same way.  Just consider what John Hussman wrote recently…

As I did in 2000 and 2007, I feel obligated to state an expectation that only seems like a bizarre assertion because the financial memory is just as short as the popular understanding of valuation is superficial: I view the stock market as likely to lose more than half of its value from its recent high to its ultimate low in this market cycle.

At present, however, market conditions couple valuations that are more than double pre-bubble norms (on historically reliable measures) with clear deterioration in market internals and our measures of trend uniformity. None of these factors provide support for the market here. In my view, speculators are dancing without a floor.

And it isn’t just stocks that could potentially be on the verge of a massive decline.  The bond market is also experiencing an unprecedented bubble right now.  And when that bubble bursts, the carnage will be unbelievable.  This has become so obvious that even CNBC is talking about it…

Picture this: The bond market gets spooked by a sudden interest rate scare, sending a throng of buyers streaming toward the exits, only to find a dearth of buyers on the other side.

As a result, liquidity evaporates, yields soar, and the U.S. finds itself smack in the middle of another debt crisis no one saw coming.

It’s a scenario that TABB Group fixed income head Anthony J. Perrotta believes is not all that far-fetched, considering the market had what could be considered a sneak preview in May 2013. That was the “taper tantrum,” which saw yields spike and stocks sell off after then-Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke made remarks that the market construed as indicating rates would rise sooner than expected.

If the strength of our financial markets reflected overall strength in the U.S. economy there would not be nearly as much cause for concern.

But at this point our financial markets have become completely and totally divorced from economic reality.

The truth is that our economic fundamentals continue to decay.  In fact, the IMF says that China now has the largest economy on the planet on a purchasing power basis.  The era of American economic dominance is ending.  It is just that the financial markets have not gotten the memo yet.

Hopefully we still have at least a few more months before stock markets all over the world start crashing.  But remember, we are entering the seventh year of the seven year cycle of economic crashes that so many people are talking about these days.  And we are definitely primed for a global financial collapse.

Sadly, most people did not see the crash of 2008 coming, and most people will not see the next one coming either.

    • alan

      Here is what I though about Red China. They bought crazy amounts of gold. So they can launch a new gold backed currency. So they implode take the US down with them. The western countries will all be belly up. Then only Red China with huge gold reserves can now step forward and replace the dollar as reserve currency. Some times you need a crisis to be able to make changes you need to fix things.

    We can’t – not with the contradictory laws, socialist regulations, and balkanized societies within this country.

    With the damage done already our meager options left is convening a Convention of the States to repair the damage done to the laws, government, and the usurpers messing with the society and economy. If this fails, then the next step is sessions and civil war.

    I do believe we’re to that point.

    I just returned from a trip to the Philippines and contemplated will the US look like this in 10 or 20 years? Maybe. No one can afford a house, people pretty much do whatever they can to just feed themselves. Anything else is a luxury. Random new buildings and a lot of decay. I think we are still on a slow downward slide for a long time to come. In 5 years most 401k’s will be gone, retirement will be a dream. There will be no medical care unless your rich or someone on your street had a couple medical classes. Our only possible savior is a collapse over night and someone with a brain fixes it right this time. Wishful thinking I suppose.

      Oh forgot to add..we will be so poor in 10 years will will have sold/turn in most of our gold and guns just to eat. This eliminates the need to confiscate either.

      The Philippines was an American colony.

      • Mike Smithy

        Actually, the Philippines was originally a Spanish colony. It wasn’t until the American’s won the Spanish-American war that is was ceded over to the USA. The USA also also gained control of Guam, CNMI and Puerto Rico. Here is a cold hard fact for you to wrap your feeble mind around: Institutionalized corruption is a legacy of Spanish colonial model. Just take a look at Mexico, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Philippines, Guam, Puerto Rico. They were all colonized by the Spaniards and remain corrupt hell holes up to this day. Corruption and incompetence has been engrained into their culture and cannot be removed.

        • Priszilla

          So when was America colonized by Spain?
          Or is there no corruption in the US?

          • Mike Smithy

            When it comes to the issue of corruption, there are orders of magnitude. If not, then we must assume that the UK was also colonized by the Spaniards.

          • Priszilla

            Maybe Spain and England got their corruption from the church that claimed only to be accountable to god?

          • Cynical Guy42

            A lot of countries have corruption, not just former Spanish colonies. That being said, Spain had a model with elements of feudalism and socialism, whereas the British were more capitalist. Both models have corruption but the Spanish model more so.

          • T.

            America became colonized by the Rothschilds in 1913. The Full extent of Their Corruption did not begin to be manifest until the 1980’s. From then it grew in stature (Corruption) until the Crisis of 2008 – When They swallowed U.S. up completely. Only the Deaf, Dumb and the Blind do Not see and Understand this.

        And here in the U.S., Evangelical Christians are trying to ban birth control and abortions. We already have excess labor, people can’t find work or have to compete with illegals and green-lighted tech workers from India. Even with the ACA and Medicaid, most people can’t afford health care. Very few people have the down payment for a house. We already are the Philippines.

        • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

          Generally Christian evangelicals are not opposed to artificial birth control, so long as the method prevents conception instead of killing the embryo.

          • Cynical Guy42

            I agree. I grew up as an evangelical Protestant. Abortion is not okay, but most evangelicals think birth control is.

      It’s difficult to say. I’ve been to the Philippines, and I think CA might be going in that direction. I haven’t been to Appalachia or Detroit (but I’ve seen things about them on the Net). What I’ve seen and read about Detroit and Appalachia makes me think they’re close to what’s in the Philippines.

    Actual events, economic conditions, data, statistics and fundamentals do not matter at all to the ‘new economy’ and most certainly not to the ‘markets’, which are so far disconnected from reality that you cannot even SEE the light of reality from where they are. As long as everybody (mostly ‘investors, for lack of a better term), think that everything is OK and are getting rich (read: wealth effect) nothing matters. This ruse can go on forever as long as no one minds the endless central bank money printing, manipulation of markets and depression of interest rates, which has replaced actual productivity and GDB. Cognitive dissonance.

    Well if Germany is in such trouble because it has lost trade with Russia wasn’t Merkel a buffoon to have gone along with the sanctions when she must have known the USA was behind the initial destabilization of Ukraine?

    The problem in Japan and Germany is the currency rate of exchange has gone up as their nations prospered. They no longer are able to compete with other countries with a rate of exchange that they have made.
    To a lesser extent this is happening all over the world.
    For a long time, Japan put out the best quality cars in the world. I still have a 1985 Toyota Truck with a little 4 cylinder engine. The body is gradually rusting away. But the engine and transmission work fine. I have had this vehicle since 1988. It has needed starters and alternators over the years.
    The same vehicle today would cost at least 15-16 thousand. I paid 8K for a 3 year old truck with 36K miles on it.
    Later I bought a camry 6 cyl. It has not held up near as well. They have learned bad habits from GM!
    China has artificially kept their currency low on the exchange. Even as they prosper they have kept it low relative to other countries. So no one can compete with the price of a cheap Chinese product here or abroad.
    Our stores are literally overloaded with Chinese-made products. We do not produce anything to compete with them here.
    Our ancestors knew better. They put a stop to it. They literally put protective tarriffs on all our retail goods. That was to keep businesses capable of surviving here. The prices reflected the cost of producing them here.
    Well the protective tarriffs are gone. China owns the retail market here and abroad.
    All those people earning a living and paying taxes here are not doing so any more. Same thing is happening everywhere on the planet.
    Old Chinese Proverb: He who feeds China, rules China.
    Well the current regime is feeding China at the expense of the rest of the planet.
    When it comes right down to it, that is what will cause a world wide depression and equalization of the currencies all over the planet. Because at some point down the road, it cannot continue to bleed our money to China without a huge reaction in the markets.
    The same goes for every country.
    China has a tiger by the tale. If they let go, the tiger will kill them all. If they continue to keep the tiger spinning around them, they might survive another day.
    That tiger is literally the consumer goods they produce to feed themselves at the expense of the rest of the world.
    If it stops, then China must do something to divert attention away from starvation. They will do it with military action.
    I suggest they will call our debts that we owe them world wide against every nation that was suckered into doing business with them at really cheap products. The purpose being to own us all. The purpose is to bring their people here to live.
    Russia thinks strategy like a chess player. China uses GO. GO is a game of numbers. You surround your opponent and eliminate him.
    Historically they have used massive armies and massive losses of people to win wars. I think Korea was an example of this.
    That same tiger could just as easily turn on their friend, Russia. But the Russians do not see that as a problem.
    It all goes back to history. China has at least 4 thousand years of history. They consider us late-comers and barbarians.
    Logistically, China has an advantage of numbers.
    When the markets do adjust down to reflect reality, then everything is going to have to change. We can no longer afford the luxury of getting Chinese retail goods at the expense of the working class of this country.
    When that happens, expect China to nationalize all the greedy corporation factories in China. That includes everyone that is not Chinese!
    At that point in time, we have to start over.

      “At that point in time, we have to start over.” That point will be the “End of The World” as we presently Know it. Out of the ruins of this present “System” will arise the Phoenix of the “New World Odor.” This has all been Planned. Your commentary on the Past World Order is very accurate – However, We are all witnessing the Death of the Old and are on the cusp of witnessing the birth of the New. The undoing of the Old will be very Painful for most of the World – Which is why the World at large will gladly accept the New (Dictatorial/Controlling) Order so as to Stop the Pain. It will Not be pretty.

      End Free Trade. I favor increasing tariffs so that places like Walmart and Target could no longer buy foreign and would have to buy domestically made products. 50% or more of all goods would be made in the USA.

        It won’t work.
        Add all prices and all wages and you should come up in equality. Right?

        In reality when you add up all sale prices of all products of a company the amount is always higher than all wages paid.
        So what will happen if you can’t sell those goods and services?
        Export them? To Mars? To a fictional place where the wages are always higher than the goods they produce?

        The rich only have money to play with because they refuse to buy all the goods abd aervices that are produced.

      You are right about Tarrifs. When I watched the first Presidential debate back in 2012 between Obama and Romney, I noticed they kept talking about tweaking the tax code to help create jobs. What a bunch of scripted nonsense. Just raise Tariffs to such high levels so that it’s more profitable for corporations to make things here in the U.S. than abroad and the jobs will come right back.

    I hope you all are using this information not only to post witty commentary but also to line your pockets with profit. UVXY and SPXU is a necessary part of a smart portfolio today…just go do it.

    Don’t be intimidated in any way by your enemies. This will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed, but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself.

    For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,

    You say in your opening comments that “some people feel that the economic collapse will begin in Europe”. Can you tell us who those people are who said that?

    Something is going to break. There are to may plates in the air right now and I get the feeling nobody quite knows what to do.

    I do not think America will just roll over and let anyone push it over,brace yourself for an economic fight of the decade

    …y continuara en el mediano y largo plazo por la simple razon de que los paises emergentes se estan industrializando y estan reemplazando los productos japoneses y alemanes. No hay solucion, a ajustarse el cinturon !

    Michael, isn’t China also having debt problems?

    • Hammerstrike

      Who do they borrow from, Mars?

      • Scott

        Large amounts of consumer debt. They have their own currency.

        • There is a very big difference between owing debt to oneself (within one’s country) and owing debt to another country.

          China has consumer debts but so does every other nation in the world. That’s internal debts. What it doesn’t have is trillions of debt owed to another country. That would be the USA!

    Germany, Japan and the U. S. are built on an absolute Mirage an Illusion. The Monetary System which the Banking Cabal has built is an absolute House of Cards. When They pull One of the Cards – It will Collapse. That date is drawing Nigh.

    • Hammerstrike

      German and Japanese economies are nailed to the FR dollar since 1985, what is surprising is that they haven´t collapsed already.

    And if you’re wrong, you buy us all dinner. We’ll come down to Argentina. We won ‘t want to be in the US at the time, anyway.

    • Deal! All those that visit me in a hippie town called El Bolsón, Río Negro province! If I should lose!

      Of course, I would need to vet the winners first, as I don’t care to entertain CIA agents unaware!?!

    • BTW, Mike Adams of Natural News is a NeoCON shill. Check out his recent post advocating sending US troops to Latin America to stop #Ebola2 from reaching the USA! Come on! Close the border and seal it, if you want to stop immigrants carrying #Ebola2 (the ruse) from entering the Land of Milk and Honey!

      The Health Ranger is aligned with Alex “I am the Gatekeeper on the Right!” Jones! And he returned from Ecuador or Peru from “an assignment” probably!

    “So the Chinese are manipulating their currency to keep their goods cheaper than ours.”


    Nothing new under the sun.

    If you like your Ebola you can keep your Ebola.

    “The disease acted stupidly.”

    “You didn’t catch that.”

    “If I had a hemorrhagic
    disease it would look like Ebola”

    Tell Ebola I’ll have more FLEXIBILITY after the November Elections Calling it
    Ebola is like putting lipstick on a pig.

    You gota catch Ebola to know what’s in it. Obama says there isn’t a smidgeon of
    a chance of getting Ebola… You can trust Obama because he only offered this
    advice after careful consultation with his favorite medical adviser.

    We’re gonna punish our enemies and reward Ebola

    Ebola stimulates the economy.


    Body bags, latex gloves, hazmat suits and much more

    Can I catch Ebola using an Obama phone?

    It’s not a contagion. It’s workplace virus. Thanks for all these comments. At
    least we’ll die laughing.

  • Frank Bell

    Isn’t that funny?

    All those years you have been predicting the crash of the Dollar and now it is stronger than a few years ago.

    No crash of the Dollar!

    It was just nonsense to scare us!!!

    • GSOB

      It is not hard to predict something that inevitably will happen.

      It’s the timing and the sacrifices that

      will be made – that conjures up possible

      scenarios, facts, current events… to keep us on guard and prepping.

      It’s all good.

      The USA is the leader of the world and intends to stay that way at any cost.

      The status global currency is fixed and we all know that and I hope it stays that way as long as it can… but it’s temporary at best.

      The Lord is will bring all things to pass, as He has promised.
      Until then,….

    • Firstgarden

      It’s always a scientific “fact” until a new fact supplants the old one.

      Conversely, it’s always a “myth” until the ‘myth’ turns out to be true.

      Be careful with the “bias of the normal.”
      Kind regards..

    Folks, we’ve got Trouble!

    Oh, you know the drill by now…

    So how do we go about solving this?
    Why not ask Eminem, the greatest philosopher of our time?

    “Let’s get down to business
    I don’t wanna play around, what is this?
    Looks like a circus in town
    Let’s shut the crap down/On these clowns!
    Can I get a witness?”

    Nothing is going to get done.
    Count on it. I’d bet my bottom penny on it. Yes, the one I found on the sidewalk the other day.

    Of course, those in the know, already know, and are willing to do absolutely nothing about it. Like the flu, it has to run its course. Yikes! Even with Ebola, someone’s gonna at least try to stop it!

    Ross Perot may not have looked very presidential but when it came to economics he was better than Bush senior and Clinton. NAFTA and the WTO has destroyed our manufacturing base and has caused our trade deficit to explode. The idea that one can consume far more than you produce is a recipe for diseaster.
