The Seven Year Cycle Of Economic Crashes That Everyone Is Talking About

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

Blood Red MoonLarge numbers of people believe that an economic crash is coming next year based on a seven year cycle of economic crashes that goes all the way back to the Great Depression.  What I am about to share with you is very controversial.  Some of you will love it, and some of you will think that it is utter rubbish.  I will just present this information and let you decide for yourself what you want to think about it.  In my previous article entitled “If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States“, I discussed many of the economic cycle theories that all seem to agree that we are on the verge of a major economic downturn in this country.  But there is an economic cycle that I did not mention in that article that a lot of people are talking about right now.  And if this cycle holds up once again in 2015, it will be really bad news for the U.S. economy.

Looking back, the most recent financial crisis that we experienced was back in 2008.  Lehman Brothers collapsed, the stock market crashed and we were plunged into the worst recession that we have experienced as a nation since the Great Depression.  You can see what happened to the Dow Jones Industrial Average on the chart that I have posted below…

The Dow - 1999 To The Present

Prior to that, the last time that the stock market experienced a major decline of that nature was during the bursting of the dotcom bubble seven years earlier.  2001 was a year of recession for the U.S. economy and of big trouble for stocks.

And oh year, a little event known as “9/11” happened that year.

Seven years before that, in 1994, investors experienced the worst bond market of their lifetimes.

The following is how Reuters recalls the carnage…

The 1994 bond market massacre is remembered with horror by those who lived through it. Yields on 30-year Treasuries jumped some 200 basis points in the first nine months of the year, hammering investors and financial firms, not to mention thrusting Mexico into crisis and bankrupting Orange County.

Going back another seven years brings us to 1987.

Anyone that lived through that era remembers “Black Monday” and the horrible stock market crash very well.

The next major economic crash prior to 1987 was in the early 1980s.

In 1980, the S&L crisis was blooming and everyone was talking about the “stagflation” that we were experiencing under Jimmy Carter.  The Federal Reserve raised interest rates dramatically to combat inflation, and this helped precipitate the very deep recession that we experienced early in Ronald Reagan’s first term.

You can read much more about the “early 1980s recession” right here.

Seven years prior to 1980 brings us to 1973.  To many young Americans, that year does not have any significance, but older Americans remember the Arab oil embargo and the super long lines at the gas pumps really well.

In addition, a recession began in 1973 which ended up stretching all the way until 1975.

And those that have studied these things say that the pattern keeps going back all the way to the Great Depression.  Many correctly point out that the stock market crash which began the Great Depression was in 1929, but actually the worst year for the stock market during the Great Depression was in 1931.  And 1931 fits perfectly into the cycle.

So we have this pattern of economic crashes occurring approximately every seven years.

But there is an additional element to this cycle which makes it even more extraordinary.

As Jonathan Cahn has pointed out, this seven year cycle also lines up with the seven year “Shemitah cycle” that we find in the Bible.

For those not familiar with it, during the Shemitah year the people of Israel were commanded to let their land rest for a full year.  It was also supposed to be a time of releasing of debts.

But for the most part the people of Israel did not observe the Shemitah year, and in the Bible that is mentioned as one of the reasons why they were exiled to Babylon for seventy years.

The Shemitah year always begins in the fall, and the upcoming Shemitah year is going to start about a month from now.

Will we see things happen during this Shemitah year that are similar to things that we have seen in past Shemitah years?

For example, on September 17th, 2001 we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up until that time.  It happened on the 29th of Elul on the Jewish calendar, which is the day right before Rosh Hashanah.

That record stood for seven years until the massive stock market crash of September 29, 2008.  That date also corresponded with the 29th of Elul on the Jewish Calendar – the day right before Rosh Hashanah.

Will the pattern hold up in 2015?

Well, the 29th of Elul falls on a Sunday in 2015, so the stock market will be closed.  But it is very interesting to note that there will be a solar eclipse on that day.

And as Jonathan Cahn recently told WND, similar solar eclipses in the past have preceded major financial disasters…

In 1931, a solar eclipse took place on Sept. 12 – the end of a “Shemitah” year. Eight days later, England abandoned the gold standard, setting off market crashes and bank failures around the world. It also ushered in the greatest monthlong stock market percentage crash in Wall Street history.

In 1987, a solar eclipse took place Sept. 23 – again the end of a “Shemitah” year. Less than 30 days later came “Black Monday” the greatest percentage crash in Wall Street history.

Is Cahn predicting doom and gloom on Sept. 13, 2015? He’s careful to avoid a prediction, saying, “In the past, this ushered in the worst collapses in Wall Street history. What will it bring this time? Again, as before, the phenomenon does not have to manifest at the next convergence. But, at the same time, and again, it is wise to take note.”

So what should we make of all of this?

I am sure that some of you will dismiss this as pure coincidence and speculation.

Others will find it utterly fascinating.

But one thing is for sure – people are going to be talking about this seven year cycle all over the Internet.

When they ask you what you think, what are you going to say?

  • Mary

    Well at least it allows the continued postponing of the collapse. 2010,2012,2013,2014,2015…lol
    No more talk of 10 yr bonds or housing or economic #s….
    I bet you the economy collpase within the next 75
    Same stuff year after year day after day.

    • Grant

      Well Mary you know two sure things in your life that will take place, Death Taxes take a look around I find you somewhat selfish and unhappy.

    • Richard

      For some people 7 years seems like a long time. The dot-com bubble burst in April 2000, followed by a bigger stock market plunge in Sept 2001 after 911. I know of many who lost much in that period. But the 2008 crash was much bigger and devastated millions who lost high paying jobs and their homes and their wealth. Most still have not recovered at all. Because the Debt bubble now is so great and the condition of banks so much worse (insolvent) than ’08 and so many millions more on food stamps and other government assistance – this next Collapse will be much Bigger and harm many millions more than the last 2 combined. The Debt levels are completely unsustainable and the Derivative market has now reached 1.5 quadrillion $. When They (TPTB) trigger this next Big one – There will be pain and suffering throughout our society – Even those who made preparations, albeit to some degree less.

      • Pam

        maybe you are right. But if people like Michale S and all the others say
        all the #s are a big lie….then how come so many people are
        shopping,buying,vacationing,etc. Is it a lie that they are on a crusie
        or dropping $200 on dinner? are the people lying to me when I drop them
        at airport for vacation flight? do they actually go to the airport
        basement or something? was that not really a nice lobster they just ate?
        are they lying and it was a disguised rat?
        Prepping is OK just like any type of insurance we buy. but a part of this is for “suckers.”
        my frineds just showed me their new kids clothes for school. its a lie, its realy just paper!.
        agree with mary and othere who say dow 20,000 in 2020 but economy will
        collapse somehwere in between the cycle of 21 between years 2018 and
        years 3014. WHAT A JOKE THIS COLLAPSE Stuff

        • sharonsj

          Some people have money to burn but most of us do not. If you drove through other areas that weren’t so well-off you’d see lots of homes for sale and empty store fronts. P.S. The stock market benefits the rich but the average American doesn’t own stocks.

          • jaxon64

            Sharon–these low info types only think by what they see in front of them. If they live in a prosperous area or cater/service those with money, well then they presume that everyone is doing fine.
            They can’t grasp that if only 10% of Americans are still earning 150K+ per year in household income–that’s over 30 million people with lots of money for trips, lobster and vacations–must seem like an endless flood of prosperity from her perspective.
            She will never see the 320 million americans who continue to lose ground with keeping above water when the true inflation rate is 7 to 10% but the avg annual salary increase is only 1.4% for the bottom 90%. People who post this claptrap are also probably earning pretty good govt checks as internet schills…the govt pays quite well with our money they confiscate.

        • jox

          Sorry but I think you don’t understand how the numbers work. Suppose last year there were 1000 people in the airport, and this year 900. You still see a lot of people going on holidays, but the business feel 10% less income, so they fire some workers.

          Governments all over the world are expending big to stimulate grow, but it’s not working. Every year is worse and next crash is going to be fatal.

          BUT perhaps we are wrong. Invest in stock market and have good luck.

        • jaxon64

          Another troll—or the same troll answering the rebuttal to her prior post with a different name accidentally…don’t even bother reading this claptrap–pass by, nothing here to see except delusion.

      • Shawn

        It’s called credit

        • Richard


    • Ashwath Raghavendran

      Postponing?? Did you that engineering recruitment came to a standstill in 2011? That right now the economies of Germany, France,Britain, Italy and Spain are in tatters? Each year since 2007 – 2008 some significant event or other in one or more areas has occurred; a piece of the puzzle.A collapse is happening albeit a long drawn out one with very fundamental changes happening all around us . A train wreck in slow-mo.You seem to imply that Michael is just a worrywart, but in reality he just might have saved tens of thousands of lives from ruin through this site. I know he’s saved me from a lot of pain, a story that I will relate another day.Thank you Michael and God bless you with the strength to continue your good work.

      • Hammerstrike

        Yes, the real inflation rate in all western countries, the collapse really happened several years before the 2008 crash.

    • Bruce

      Mary I do understand your point and agree to an extent. However, with the debt this nation has one is naive to think it can go on and on forever. Sooner or later what we talk about on this forum is going to happen. “When” truly is the big question. But, rest assured it is coming. In fact, it is impossible for it not to collapse.

      • bob cratchette

        does no one or very few see that this world financial meltdoen has to happen along with all the wars and things Jesus told his disciples would happen close to the end so the world will be ripe for the antichrist to step on the scene and pull the world together for the 1 world govt and currency and non of this would be likely to happen until the world is just about at its breaking point. the fed is the only thing that is keeping this economy going right now if they pulled out their support the stock mkt would crash tomorrow and all those 401k’s everyone is depending on will vanish overnight. yes the govts may initially let you use your silver and gold to buy goods with but they will not let it go on to long before they shut it down because they cant control the people if they do not control the form of payment for goods and services and they will shut down bartering also, the govt will just just outlaw both of them. the cashless society is coming and most dont even see it, talk about control when you have credits in the bank and the govts of the world can track you and see where every penny you have is going. you dont think the govts wont do it you are delusional and need to put the kool aid aside and take off those rose colored glasses because it is like a snowball going down a hill getting faster and bigger. america has to falll to bring in this one world govt and that is being orchestrated now. how long does america think they can spit and shake their fists in Gods face before there are consequences very few of us are able to deal with.

        • Richard

          Agree Bob. TPTB are moving us toward a OneWorldGovernment and EconomicSystem. But God gave us a mind to THINK with and He expects us to use it. By that I mean – Make Preparations – Because the snowball is almost at the bottom of the hill.

    • jaxon64

      troll alert…and many more are meeting up on this site now and answering each others posts and questions.
      The fact that so many trolls have recently begun coming to this site en masse to post mocking comments and to thumbs up eachother makes me a bit more uneasy that something may be coming down the pike.

  • K

    Perhaps you are correct, it could indeed go that way. Here is what I see. I see the collapse coming shortly after the next election. I have always said, they will make their move in Winter, because people are easier to control during Winter. Now this coming Winter is supposed to be a record breaker. I could be wrong. But this Winter could just be too much of an opportunity, for the Government to pass up.

    • Raul

      Those in the fear trade who peddle survival gear always predict that doomsday is just around the corner. Gold sellers, financial newsletter writers, food storage hucksters — all of the same ilk! Anybody out there know of that quack Jim Sinclair? He guaranteed yet another bottom in gold — $80 an ounce ago! All these nuts claim that the gold price is rigged by the FED. Then they produce charts which purport to predict where the price is going based on market forces — which is nowhere if indeed it is rigged. Eventually, the world does end — we all die!

      • Normal

        Take ice bucket challenge and clear your mind, you will need it for sure.
        Jim Sinclair is wacko, don’t listen to him.

      • bob cratchette

        yes but even after death we all will spend and eternity in one place or the other like it or not and each one of us make our own decision.

    • The org. RICHARD

      I like the way you think K. I do believe it will be in Oct. of this year.

    • Hammerstrike

      If the collapse happen in 2015 there will be no need for elections in 2016.

  • Bill

    Perhaps the cabal uses theories to help build circumstances to support their agendas. In a any case world events are proceeding in such a way that we are doomed no matter what the theory might be.

  • Tim

    Well, if the pattern holds it gives us more time to prepare. I’ve been working really hard in order to pay for things that I need. I wish I could move to a state with a low population density (e.g. Montana) before things get really bad, but I think I’m stuck here in South Carolina. I’ll just do the best I can right here.

    • alan

      I lived in Montana its too cold. The growing season is about 3 months, might get 6 with a green house.

    • Helluva3ngineer

      There are far worse places. At least you are in the South where there is some semblance of states rights, or at least the recognition of it.

  • Richard

    Yes. The Big one will be next year around the 29th of September 2015. The pattern of 7’s will continue because of Those who are in total Control of All the Markets of the World. The Global Banking Cabal of the Rothschilds will see to it. That is their plan. In the lead up beginning this month we can expect bad things to start happening and get progressively worse as the we get closer to September 29th, 2015 date. What kind of Bad things? – Geopolitical, Financial, Social unrest worldwide and even Weather events (because of HAARP). It’s about to get very interesting.

    • Hammerstrike

      My own theory is that this crash will be preceded by a significant acceleration of inflation.

    • Miryana

      Its suppose to fall on Elul 29 the old Israel calendar which is the 13th of September for us.

    • Faris Al-Raisi

      the fact the you posted this a year before is just very intriguing…

  • Bill

    This article offers opportunity for discussion. I do not see it as speculation nor coincidence. For discussion I think certain facts have carry much more weight in supporting the argument for collapse.

    If an individual had 77 times more debt than capital, would you consider that person anywhere close to being solvent and capable of doing business?

    That is the current ratio for the Fed. Now that is not theory and it does not speak well for the future of America.

  • Normal

    Remember what Christine Laggard said couple months ago .
    Number 7 is the answer.

    • Sandbagger

      Check out Lucky Seven Samson Schoolhouse Rock on YouTube…

      If anyone knows the Illuminati symbols, you’ll notice the “lucky star” (pentagram) and also the circle around one eye (all-seeing eye) on Samson. Interesting choice for a name. When Samson takes a “haircut” he looses his strength. Perhaps 7 is the number of financial “haircuts”!

    • Hammerstrike

      Nurgle´s “blessing”.

      • Rob

        I’m probably the only person who reads Michaels site and understands this comment at the same time 🙂

  • larrythelogger

    The seven year cycle for us goes all the way back to 1913-ish and the start of the Fed. You know, the groovy deal that was touted and sold to prevent economic cycles like recessions and depressions and that worked out pretty well, no? The seven year cycle for Israel goes all the way back to Joshua and has NOTHING to do with us in this age. Just because the cycle times look similar, one was for inheritance and covenant (Abrahamic) relationship with God. We’re in no way under the same covenant, however the land deal will start back up again seven years after a bunch of us disappear. (It actually becomes enforceable right after we disappear but there’s some other stuff that sorta moots that point). Shemitah and jubilee were and will again be really good things and point to God and relationship with Him. Our seven year cycles aren’t.and because we’re knee deep in the hooplah of fulfillment of the three promises in Romans 1 (REALLY BAD promises), we make sure our cycles point to anything but God.

    • LeMarchand

      They know, shut it down!

  • Well for me, I am a firm believer in the Bible and numbers are part of the foundation for everything in the written word. So when it comes to biblical truths, there are no coincidences. It’s all planned perfectly just as the creation of everything you see here on earth and in the skies/heavens.

    This year I’ve got a wedding and a 1st year college student to pay for. Once that is behind me, my wife and I are going to spend every available cent to prepare for what’s coming. I’ve been holding out long enough. Although yes I have in the past [some 4 years ago] gone out and stocked on food, which is all gone now but at least I had something stored up.

    But now with soooo many signs taking place that point to so much more than most people realize, I’d rather be on the side of caution and preparedness than one who cares more about the iPhone6 and the latest viral video.

    This time it’s not only food but the essentials as well. Heed the warning signs folks….and lean on the side of prudence and not ignorance.

    • Sandbagger

      Who says you need to pay for the wedding? A big party that lasts for a day and that’s it. Oh, with a 50% chance of divorce at the time of, “until death do us part”.

      Have the kids pay for their own.

      • Charlotte

        I had a cheap wedding, but I’m forever grateful my parents were willing to pay for it. Even a $150 second-hand wedding dress is still costly for someone just starting out in life. As long as the kids are grateful for the help and understand that it’s just one day, I don’t think it’s wrong for parents to offer to pay for a small ceremony and low-key reception.

        • pbrad009

          $150? That doesn’t sound like an episode of “Say Yes to the Dress”.

          • Charlotte

            I wasn’t going to spend $1,000 on a wedding dress, even if I had the money to do it.

          • Johnny Geetar

            Good for you, Charlotte! You’re wise indeed. A lavish wedding means D*ck if the love and commitment between the 2 people are flawed. My first marriage? My wife-to-be INSISTED on the $150 dollar a plate reception with every last amenity known to man; pasta stations, seafood stations, blah blah ( To pretend we were all super-wealthy for what… 5 hours???) the lavish, top-shelf honeymoon with 1st class amenities for 10 days, expensive rings, the full works. All told, we, AND her working class parents, pissed away over $43,000 on this affair. A freakin downpayment on a HOUSE! Divorced 2 years later…. Was it worth it? You tell me…. lol
            My second wife and I are married almost 18 years now, and going strong. We were both broke at the time, cleaning up from our LAST marriages. lol We got married on Ft. Lauderdale Beach at sunrise on the EXACT spot we met with a few close friends in attendance that could get up and be ready by sunrise. Then we threw a great party at the motel pool and cooked steaks and seafood and drank our brains out. Had an utter blast!
            Cost of 2nd wedding? Under $900 bucks, and it meant MORE than the lavish FIRST one, hands down. It AIN’T about the party; It’s about the love, and celebrating it!
            As a sidenote, my wife’s first marriage was to a man whose family was quite big in “Chicago Society.” Talk about pissing away money….Air conditioned mega-tent on the beach, 4 dozen exotic trees bought for a 1 time use, TV’s bought and set up for the bear’s game that day for the bar area, 6 course meal including top shelf seafood catered in for over 500 guests! Cost of THAT little extravaganza? $91,000 bucks. Turns out her 1st husband was a thief, embezzler, wife beater and cronic coke and whore affectionado. Was THAT hootnanny worth it? Hardly….. $91,000 dollars… It STILL boggles my mind….

      • Lol…your name suits you well.

        But honestly bagger it’s my pleasure to help her out because my girl is one of kind. She’s very special and worth every penny and then some. So I do it with a joyful heart and not one of regret.


      • jaxon64

        I’m of the differing mind…offer the newlyweds either a nice wedding ( reasonable) or some start up cash for the eventual down payment on a home…
        What I don’t agree on is the presumptiopn that parents are responsible for going into debt to pay for their children’s college.
        A couple in their 40’s or later has a limited number of years left to pay off a home and establish a retirement nestegg big enough so that they are not dependent on govt checks to make ends meet.
        Kids have their full 40 to 50 years of working age to pay off that school debt. Not to mention, one would hope that with the loans or working for the degree while schooling-the child would be wise in the selection of majors and take the studies more seriously.

        • Johnny Geetar

          Absolutely Jaxon! Majoring in Native American Lesbian studies does NOT portend a prosperous future….. lol And there are actual idiots out there that will UNDER-WRITE foolishness like this for their children….

      • andrea mitchell

        oy vey thats a bad goyim

    • jaxon64

      This is all very interesting–I would not discount it immediately because life on earth is full of patterns and cycles…however I am a skeptic by nature and also believe in the numerical power of coincidence, probability, chaos etc etc..
      If red comes up 10 straight times on a roulette wheel, I’m not betting my life savings on black for the next spin—the law of averages still says that the bet is 50/50 on the next spin.
      There may be a true, in-grained pattern or cycle to these seemingly unrelated events ( like the lunar cycles affecting the stock market?)..but I can only prepare as I always have and leave the rest to the creator of the patterns/cycles.

    • andrea mitchell

      the jews wrote the bible and the jews control the banks and wall st, and the media ,they are following a script, script/scripture, get it , it is a self fulfilling prophecy , being fulfilled by the jewish cabal, cabal/kabbalah

      • Richard

        The Bible is the Word of Almighty God. The Jewish people God selected to be the writers of His Bible, were His Servants – the servants of Almighty God. They were sanctified by God Himself. The present day Jews are Not Jewish by blood at all. The Bible says These modern era Jews are Imposters, Liars. Go to Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9. This is the Lord Himself speaking to the Apostle John in these two verses. Further, one can find more Truth about these Imposters by getting the book by Texe Marrs, DNA Science and the Jewish Blood Lines. These modern era Jews are Imposters – They are Cabalistic Gentiles who Converted to Judaism back in the 8th century 1,200 years ago. In Truth, by Blood They are Not Decendents of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. There is DNA evidence Today which tells Exactly where in the World These Imposters Originated , and it is Not from Old Testament Israel.

        • andrea mitchell

          yes thanks i am familiar with texe mars and the khazar theory ,and benjamin freedman as well speaking of khazar theory

          • xavierkress

            Yes, Khazar’s/Zionists yes, I agree on that, but not Jews. The Bible talks about this as well, “‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the
            slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a
            synagogue of Satan.” – Rev 2:9

            Those that disguise themselves as Jews are the ones that are causing a lot of trouble…

        • JailBanksters

          The Bible was written by Humans, it was translated into every other language by Humans and reproduced in millions for the profit of Humans. God had nothing to do with it.

          • Daniel

            Says a mere human. Let God be true and every man a liar – JailBanksters

          • To assert that the Bible is the Word of God can only be based on ‘faith.’ NOT rationality. It is so interesting to me that people believe this. I guess they have to belief it so they can sleep at night. Funny thing too, is that they also think God has chosen them for heaven and 99 percent of their brother humans will roast in hell, sent there by their loving, good and all powerful God.

          • Mark Mildenberger

            When God created Adam and Eve. He said, it was very good. Why? Because
            they were perfection in the flesh and they
            knew no sin. Adam was extremely intelligent, and named all the beasts of the
            field, all the fowl in the air and all fish in
            the sea. We would still be fumbling around with naming the Giraffe. lol
            They had the knowledge of God, and were in a very advanced society, maybe
            1000 years ahead of our abilities? The
            Lord walked with Adam in the coolness
            of the garden. Now this amazing, because
            God is in his glory and Adam could stand in his presence, because there was no sin on him. God is holy and can not look upon sin, we would burn up in
            his presence. When Adam and Eve fell
            and transgressed against God. That was the beginning of original sin, soon
            as we are born. however, there is no
            accountability for the innocent. Only those that have been warned and don’t
            listen. Jesus Christ is the second Adam
            that bore our sins, so we could have everlasting life in the kingdom of heaven. How many friends are willing
            to die for you?

          • Hero Miles

            Faith ≠ Truth

      • Daniel

        Andrea – Much of what the Hebrew prophets spoke of in Scripture concerning Messiah has already been fulfilled, even down to the very day. Most Jews do not believe Messiah (Jesus – or Yeshua) has even appeared on the scene yet, though their Scriptures testify of Him. They are blinded and only a remnant believe (a growing remnant, thankfully). There are countless examples that reveal the authenticity of Scripture far beyond what man could control.

    We have a system of numbers in the Bible that supposedly dates back to the time when the Sumarians used a system of numbers based on 60.
    We tell time to this day on a system of 60 seconds equal a minute, 60 minutes equaling an hour. Of course it breaks down to a 24 hour day. Then we have 365 and 1/4 days to a year. Many years ago it was based on 360. 6×60 being a year.
    Another number in the bible was 40. 40 being 2/3rds of 60.
    6 was 1/10 of 60. 12 had 5 in 60. This balance of numbers leads me to believe that we originally orbited the Sun a little closer than we are right now.

    The Bible also mentions a week of 6 working days and 1 day of rest. That is where I think the magic number 7 came in.
    To this day the printer’s measure was based on the magic of 12. There are 12 points in a pica. There are 6 picas in an inch. All of which was set up in a series of point sizes for type. 72 picas make a foot.

    Based on this point size idea, you get a balanced size chart for typography. So dealing with 12 as a base instead of 10 as a base things do make a little bit better sense. At least to me it does. That system based on 60, things balance out.

    If there is a natural cycle of finance, it should be based on the 6 rather than the 7. Meaning that every 6 years, the entire house of unstable finance breaks down at the end of the 6th year, that being the beginning of the 7th year.
    So for an entire year, the 7th year, the entire system breaks down and has to be re-established for the 8th year which is the beginning of a new growth cycle of 6 years.
    The trick then is to bet on a down market every 6 total years at the beginning of the 7th which would be around the middle of September of that year. Remember in this system that September is the beginning of the 7th year. So give or take 12 to 18 days into September the system will collapse.
    That makes August the last month of the 6 years.
    Then for an entire year the market travels down. That is very interesting information for a system.
    At the beginning of the 8th year in September you bet on a rising market for 6 years.
    I have heard of crazy systems. But this one does take the cake.
    If this happened twice, it is a coincidence. But according to the article it has happened consistently over a long period of time.
    It doesn’t matter why if it works.
    In 2008, I had an inheritance. I was told to invest it in the market around June of that year. I told the investment councilor I was an amateur. I would rather leave it in savings. Well the market crashed, my money was safe, and I eventually spent it on a better house.
    That house has lost about 40,000 in value since 2008. That is according to the Real Estate County tax people.
    It will more than likely lose more in 2015, if you are right.
    What is more important is most of our pensions are based on investments in the market. That means a good number of people will lose their shirts in the coming year.

    • El mico

      The system of 12 was used as it was easily divided as whole numbers in halves, quarters, thirds. Metric system requires fractions.

  • Matt

    To understand why the Shemitah Year is important you need to know a little math. Societies, just like forests, are heavily influenced by the past. That means there is a feedback loop driving us into the future. That is an exponential function. It also means we will ALWAYS crash. The harder you try to make societies stable is just like putting out more fires in a forest. And what happens to a forest that has never had a fire?

    The Shemitah Year is the equivalent of a controlled burn in a forest. It is a controlled mini-crash. Societies implementing the Shemitah Year will never have a big crash.

    What happens to societies that don´t implement the Shemitah Year?

    They will either have a Great Depression or turn into Japan before they have a Great Depression. There is no way out short of a big crash. Currently, the West is turning into Japan. And Japan is now on the brink of disaster after holding it off for 20 years.

    • Hammerstrike

      The plaza accord of 1985 is what caused the failure of the Japanese economy.

      • Matt

        We are all turning Japanese now.

        Over a long period of time, gradually bad ideas, bad decisions and corruption build up. Eventually they get so bad there is big crash. Some countries may be able to suppress the big crash. However, these countries will never be able to get things going well again. Why? Because all the problems that caused the crash in the first place remain. Only a big crash can clear out the problems.

        • Hammerstrike

          A bit worst than the 1990s for Japan, actually.

          As Michael pointed out, when offical inflation rates are taken into account the recession in the US started around 2005.
          Real inflation rates sees the recession beginning even earlier than that and the Clinton surplus is a myth.

  • alan

    The collapse is here, it got rolling in 2008. The path is down ward, just the pace is unknown, I think we will have some goods days and some bad, but always downward. It would be best just to hit the reset button and get it over with because this slow death by a 1000 cuts will be nasty.

    • Hammerstrike

      The pace is slow for the time being.

      Even if the current bubble is replaced by new ones and prevents a crash (with more printing), living standards would keep declining and dissatisfaction and unrest will keep rising steadily while the dollar as an international currency will keep sucking profits out of international trade, sooner or later, more will leave the petrodollar ship.


    What we have in the stock market is one of the greatest bubbles ever. Zero interest rates on Savings + limitless QE and you have a stock market boom! I predict Obama and the Fed will do everything possible to keep this party going right through the 2016 election but…there will be a severe correction. Very severe because other than Funny Money there is nothing holding this market up. Pay your debts off. Put some food and ammo away. When the correction comes it will come suddenly and violently like those planes going into the Twin Towers one impossibly beautiful day.

  • Priszilla

    Since the depression? Then it might be bad, but not really news?

  • Dave of OK

    Jesus Christ, the Word, was the spokesman of the Godhead in the Old Testament, including the cultural laws of Israel. No, we do not have to keep them today for salvation. But we do have to understand that God put his heart into the laws of the Old Testament, including the civil laws of Israel. He understood how humans tick and that over the course of seven years mankind will warp the agricultural and financial mechanism of his society and things will have to be adjusted every seven years in order to bring balance back into the system. When mankind does not do that because of greed, the nature of the financial system itself springs back to normal. Unfortunately because it was not done in a controlled manner, it will bring a period of disorder and lose of a lot of people’s hard earned capital, usually the capital of the middle and lower class; the rich get warning and make their own corrections and just get richer.

    • LeMarchand

      No silly boy, this system have simply been established to systematically benefit those who know and hurt those who do not. It is only a depression for the fool who loses his money, not for he who is wise and devious enough to seize the fool´s money.
      The true miracle is that they either forgot or never learn their lessons from the last crash, they always dellude themselves into believing that because the markets begin to recover and improve they will automatically keep doing so. It is not really a sin to trick them into gambling away their life savings and then heartily laugh at their plight, it is not taking advantage of such a divine opportunity that would b a serious sin.

      • Joe

        Apparently you define sin differently than the scriptures. If I were as impressed by you as I am by God I might join you in redefining it and screwing over my fellow man. But I’m not and I wont. Good luck with that.

  • It is rather interesting to note that when it comes to “predicting” the Big Crash, the religious get a bit superstitious and astrological in their arguments.

    Like the “Super Blood Moon” on Oct.8, 2014. Or that one in April 2014 that one US preacher staked his whole reputation, books, TV shows, etc. upon.

    The “Big Crash” will happen like all the major crashes including the October one in 1929 and even the 2008 one: precipitated by the PTB at their behest.

    Of course, things like the derivatives market can blow up like LTCM and AIG, but the PTB will always try to preempt them by going to WAR or stage another BIG 9/11 event for the sheeple to be fixated upon.

    It’s going to be really interesting, as the Chinese would sya/curse, these few remaining months of 2014. 2015 is going to be a douzer.

  • chris

    Judging by the comments recently that investors are borrowing record amounts from the banks to invest in the stock market, that UK house prices are now even higher than they were in the 2007/08 bubble, that people are only just scraping by with their cost of living then i’d say we are at the point of bursting the current bubble this autumn 2014. How ‘they’ could recover the system from it by doing anything other than more bailouts and money printing, which i think would cause widespread rioting, i can’t see. Maybe they don’t wan’t it to continue and this will be the last crash on the back of which they usher in whatever evil is the new system.
    Or do they want a big war?

  • Firstgarden

    Ahem, what a tangled web we weave. Whilst cyclic theory doth abound, UNIQUE EVENTS are also part of the equation.

    For instance, the powers that be can manipulate things to their own ends, forestalling or ushering in recessions, almost at will. But, ultimately, the forces of nature prevaileth, life’s laws art not mocked, and the inefficiencies are eventually purged from the system. Only… these reckless, lunatic, self-serving policies up the ante exponentially.

    Jack, I do not disagree with you. Jonathon Cahn’s numbers are probably off – but that is Not the issue. The Issue what are the Global Banksters who Control all the world markets going to do and WHEN are They going to do it? I believe TPTB (Rothschild Global Banking Cabal) are operating on Cahn’s interpretation and the 7 year cycle. There is strong historical Financial and Economic evidence to support this. Anyway, Mathematically these Banksters can not keep this game going much longer and They know this, even with Their super computers and digital $ created by the Trillions. The End Game Is Near.

    So what happens to my fixed rate car loan if the big crash happens?

    • Richard

      Currency values will Revalue ($ Down); Interest Rates will Reset; Loan Principal will be Reconfigured ($ Loans Upward).

      • danbax

        So my 20k becomes 30k?

        • Richard

          20K What? If car loan, Principal would go up. How much would be determined by: 1. New value of the $ and 2. New interest rates. Your present fixed rate is fixed against the relative value of the present $’s value. A large $ Devaluation would necessitate an Interest rate commensurate with new $ value and new interest rates.

  • nohomehere

    WoW ! It is interesting to see here on Snyders page the ideas, about what is causing these catastrophies of late to happen ! Predicting the future is very old , blaming something or someone for a calamitious event is just as old ! Cycles are about timing of events , bad or good ? The point is , when its time, the event will happen! Is that about right? Given this slant, the particular event could be anything not just economic, it could be a mega drought, solar flare/EMP, meteor or comet strike, pandemic outbreak, extinction event, global thermo nuklear war , super volcano eruption, a revolutionary war, ect… could events be on a long enough time cycle as no history remains currently of the event sort of like the global climate change that some say is normal and natural and some say is man made? I have seen cuneiform writing that tells about a great extinction event flood , and scientists say the earth was once a snowball, this kind of cycle event has been recorded in the geological records on the earths surface and could it just be possible that several cycle events all fall together in a close proximity of time, say over a period of years? Does this sound ridiculous? Why does just one thing that is obvious cloud and dim the other possibilities. Like 2012DA14 , thats an asteriod 150′ w that is hard to estimate but could strike earth in 2020. I believe in cycles, we are living according biological cycles the sun cycles the earth in cycles, the earth wobles to a cycle and these cycles if played on 78 rpm could sound like a pattern . What says all this kind of stuff couldn’t start happening all in concert, like trumpets playing ? Is anyone listening?

    Hello Jack,
    I have been reading cc’s blog. Do you have more info on the cycles?

    • Jack MacAlister

      Hi Alex,
      Just what CC has published on his blog and what we have talked about. His health is not the best right now and he has more articles to write but I am afraid it will take some time. I know that the war cycle starts in 2017 and what he calls the slavery cycle starts in 2023. He believes that by 2020 the US will not exist as a nation. I have to concur with him. Check his site for updates.

  • This is EXACTLY right and I recently covered this a little bit on my Blog Talk Radio show. We do not continue or honor this practice of releasing people of their debt every 7 years, and as a result, every 7 years or so we experience a recession. By the way, every 50th year any land/property that was lost was to be returned to the original owner or their heir. We don’t do that either and every 50 years we also either have or come very close to a depression. The early 80’s, 50 years after the Great Depression, was another near depression. Things were that bad. If we continued this practice of releasing people from their debt every 7 years- which if I’m not mistaken is not 7 years from the time they incurred their debt but just every 7 calendar years release people from their debt, we’d probably go a long way to helping out people who are in poverty in this country as well. The bankers loaning the money are covered either way through insurance policies, and while a person who takes a loan does so at their own risk, all the interest and usury that accumulates on them is diabolical and evil in and of itself.

    • DB200

      Now suppose you were a lender and you knew every 7 years debts would be wiped out, would you lend someone a large sum when you knew you were one year away from debt forgiveness? Don’t think so. A lender would make sure that within the available time frame he would have his money back. Translate that back to economics and it would mean that nobody would be into his ears in debt.. If we would apply this rule it would give a complete different economy. God knew what he was giving us, when he gave us his laws.

      • Absolutely He did. It should go without saying that He’s the most intelligent “person” in the universe.

  • Daniel

    Jack MacAlister – God’s calendar begins on Nisan 1, actually. As for your “cycles”, there a more holes in your “cycles” than holes in a sieve. – In the Torah, the beginning of the year was clearly set at 1 Nisan, in the context of a description of the first Passover. “The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: This month shall mark for you the beginning of the months; it shall be the first of the months of the year for you” (Exodus 12:1-2).

    • Country Codger

      Hello Daniel,
      Actually you need to read the Torah. You will find that Abib is mentioned relative to coming out of Egypt and Passover. Please read Exodus 13:4, 23:15, 34:18; Deut. 16:1. Nisan is a Jewish civil name assigned to Abib not the name given to it by God. Case in point: October 1st is called the beginning of the fiscal year, September 1st is referred to as the beginning of the school year and April 15th is just plain evil, but you get my drift. Also, you have to understand why it is called Abib. It is because of the barley heads. When the barley heads bend over because of the grain filling out, then the heads are said to be in Abib. The next new moon after this event is the beginning of the month. Remember, when you quote Torah, quote Torah and NOT Jewish tradition.

    I think good things are in store. I think we will clean house in Washington in 2016. I think God is giving us a new chance. We always have a crash in the fall and we will continue too. We will have some small riots but I feel very optimistic about 2016. Every year someone predicts some world crisis. We have to realize deregulation caused the stock market crash and real estate flipping. We now have much stricter standards on housing loans and flipping houses and banks are being fined in the billions for for their unscrupulous activities. In 2001, after the Terrorist attracts on the World Trade Center, Americans pulled together and what was thought would devastate America financially, actually turned into a very short economic slump and financially we came back stronger than ever. Something may happen near the end of 2015 but we can turn it into something good, if we turn to god. My mom’s favorite bible verse. “All things work together for good for those who trust the Lord.”

    Reading this with the be the benefit of hindsight, confirms that’s its utter rubbish. We’re now in 2017 and still no crash, quite the opposite actually. But I highly believe a crash is coming either in 2017, 2018 or 2019, that’s inevitable in my head. But you can’t take credit for that as it would have happened many years after the 7 year interval you’re obsessed with. But one interesting takeaway from your writing is every year before Roshana, I’m going to short the whole US stock market (through buying a Put Option on either the SPY, DIA or NDX.
