Santa Claws Snatches Christmas Stock Market Rally

Horror movies begin with a simple, almost innocent hint that something is not quite right. The first sign that we have entered the shadowy dawn of global economic collapse, which I call the “Epocalypse,” is Santa Claus’s failure to show up on Wall Street at Christmastime. A Santa Claus rally for the New York Stock Exchange is as dependable […]

Epocalypse Now: The Economic Apocalypse is Here

When I predicted the economic apocalypse would begin for the US this month, I said the stock market would rise euphorically after the Fed raised its interest target. Rise it did. Steeply, too. I also said it would fall shortly after. Fall it did. Quickly, too. Now I’m saying the Epocalypse is here. Just as I stated that “the […]

Epocalypse When? When markets crash upward.

The Fed’s rise in rates has turned my counterintuitive predictions true by resulting in a rapid rise in the stock market. Trading only had about an hour and half left after the Fed put out its word; so, the Dow only rose about 200 points. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the euphoria kick in full force today and push the […]

The Epocalypse: What Will D-Day Look Like?

D-day, December 16, 2015. It’s now the dawn of that day when either the Fed Does or the Fed Doesn’t. It doesn’t matter. Either way, the economic apocalypse begins. Let me share something counter-intuitive. Whether the Fed raises interest rates or not, this Wednesday is D-day for the Fed’s economic recovery because the Fed is Damned if […]

Epocalypse Soon: The Great Economic Collapse is Happening

I use the term “epocalypse” to name the last days of the global economy as we know it — a global economic collapse of biblical proportion. It is economic, epochal, an apocalypse that will change the world and a collapse … all in one word that sounds the right size for what I’m talking about. Call it the “Great Collapse” or […]

Epocalypse Soon: The Second Coming of the Great Recession is Near

It was the second nuclear explosion, not the first, that ended World War II; and so it will be with the nuclear-sized economic disaster that first struck the earth in 2008. The second strike will be more calamitous and have greater consequence than the first, and that nuclear bomb is about to go off with a relatively […]

Epocalypse Soon: Stock market denial begins to break

I have moved from “Epocalypse Coming” to “Epocalypse Soon,” meaning the economic apocalypse that will be the second collapse of the Great Recession. I am taking about the big one just ahead where we finally discover the real depth of the Great Recession — an economic abyss that was spanned by the Fed with a paper bridge. […]

Epocalypse Coming: Fed Reserves Right to Raise Interest at Worst Time

October came and went without economic apocalypse. In fact, a stock market that plunged in August experienced better than full recovery in October — more than just a bounce. Nevertheless, some think (as do I) that the crash has begun, and that it will unfold as a cascade of worsening catastrophes. So, get ready for the epocalypse. […]

Epocalypse Coming: Supertrends That Will Trump Central Banks

A supercell spawns tornados — sometimes many. The supertrends I present in the following list have the same power. Against this much larger storm, the quantitative easing of central banks along with their zero-interest policies are a mere breeze — a sniffle of discontent. Supertrend #1 – Interbank Loans Freezing Up … Again The first supertrend […]

Epocalypse: Is the Perfect Economic Storm on the Horizon?

Retail is way down. New jobs are way down. Corporate debt has never been higher. Interest is rising ahead of the Fed. The pile of junk bonds is starting to waver. Investors are moving to gold and cash. Are these the emerging indicators of a perfect economic storm?     US Investors – Risk-Off   […]

Epocalypse: What Trends Shape the World after Global Economic Collapse?

To divine the direction the world will take after global economic collapse, you have to understand the prevailing winds and the underlying tides. Look for the megatrends that are influences against which all other forces have minor affect. In predicting that global economic collapse would happen this fall, I pointed out the headwinds that would continue to grow in […]

Bank of America Finally Catches on to Global Economic Collapse

News that we are sliding into global economic collapse is building every day. It intrigues me that it is now coming from the least-expected sources — from those who were the true believers in the Fed’s recovery and who have profited off the bull market so that they never spoke against the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing and low-interest-rate policy … […]

Big names weigh in on big risks of global economic collapse

The chorus of voices now crying out about the high risk of global economic collapse is growing more diverse every day. Today I have Nobel laureates and a disgusting Harvard president who are joining me in my observations of a rapidly increasing likelihood for global economic collapse.   Larry Summers on likelihood of global economic collapse   There […]

Economic Collapse — The Train Wreck that is Happening Now!

Even the Tweedledumbs of Wall Street are finally catching on to the fact that global economic collapse is happening all around them. Two weeks ago, they could have stood inside the building shown on the left with their nicely polished, rose-colored glasses and seen only signs of an improving housing market. Now enough shingles are falling on their […]
