Everything Is Changing Quickly Now and So Am I

Posted July 25, 2022 By David Haggith

As my expression of appreciation to my patrons, I try to give you the most critical economic insights ahead of everyone else. For example, back in February of 2021 I started laying out my argument for Patrons as to why and how inflation was going to become a serious conflagration that would rise to such heat […]

This Economy is Ugly in its Bones – Part 3

2019 recession coming - dust bowl photo

Suffering inflationary heat stroke While we all hope the inflation rate won’t rise further, an inflation rate that stagnates right where it is today is like the sun hitting its zenith at noon. The sun may not get hotter as it now slowly slides lower in the sky, but it keeps baking the earth around […]

This Economy is Ugly in its Bones – Part 2

Market permabulls die because they act like pigs, obsessed with pushing their way into the trough for any scrap of food that remains. For example, people continue to invest in stocks as they face-plant into the hog’s wallow again and again because they can only think of making money the way they have been used […]

This Economy is Ugly in its Bones – Part 1

Posted May 3, 2022 By David Haggith
By William D. Matthew -, Public Domain,

They say, “Beauty is only skin deep but ugly goes all the way to the bone.” Well, the last part of that certainly sums up this economy. It’s such a malformed monstrosity, you’ll wish it were extinct; and, at the rate this behemoth is now dying, it soon will be. You’ll have to look for […]

Bill Gates has dollar signs in his eyes as he envisions a cashless society

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for […]

cashless society cover of The Economist

In writing almost two years ago about the Epocalypse that would envelope the world when the Everything Bubble crashed, I wrote about crypto currencies and the central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) that would rise out of the ashes like the phoenix as the central banks’ own “fiat” currencies collapsed or their economies did:

Epocalypse Revisited Part Two: The New Globalism

Posted March 22, 2022 By David Haggith
Brussels-Arch now a symbol of the euro crisis

I promised my two-part Patron Post would lay out how the war and all the global sanctions will likely bring profound shifts to the “world order,” altering and accelerating the path toward globalization and control. I realize that is the opposite of what many are saying; and, as we’re on the leading edge of this, […]

The Daily Doom: Economic News of our Troubled Times

This article is about how Putin’s War and the most intense global sanctions in history, put in place by the West to engage the battle from the sidelines, will make the scenarios I described in “The Everything Bubble Bust” more busted.

The Everything Bubble Bust Pt. 4: Housing

A housing market crash in 2018 is where we start 2019

In a world embroiled in what could turn into World War III in which Russian President Vladimir Putin is repeatedly threatening nuclear missile attacks, a return to talking about the collapse of the Everything Bubble, especially the housing part of this collapse, seems mundane.

The stock bubble, the bond bubble (along with its sub-bubble, the zombie corporation bubble), and the housing bubble are all major parts of the economy that central banks directly inflated with their profligate monetary whoring that will all deflate catastrophically when the hot air blown into their love dolls is taken away. These bubbles constitute […]

The Everything Bubble Bust Pt. 2: Zombie Apocalypse

Federal Reserve hacking its own recovery to death

My first article in the “The Everything Bubble Bust” series focused on the bursting of the stock-market bubble, which is already reached minimum bear-market stage, because that is the most obvious area of everyone’s concern, and it is something with which we are all familiar. In my second article, I was going to focus on […]

Let me begin to describe the scale of the economic collapse that I believe has reasonable likelihood of happening without going all apocalyptic, as I could easily do if I started calling into mind geo-political crises, climate troubles and all that stuff. Let’s just stay with historic examples and forces in play right now and […]
