The colllapse and sabotage of our economy is underway.

There are numerous reasons why this will be so. Call me analytilical more so than prohetic. Many companies, retailers, manufacturers and service companies in between never leave the red until the 4th quarter often refferred to as the golden quarter.

The first clearly obvious reason is the spread of Ebola and the CDC's clearly ineadequate and incompetent handling and planning the response to out breaks that have begun here in the US. In 20 days from now you will have approximately 20 to 30 confirmed cases of Ebola and hundreds of rumored cases that will be swept under the rug as just that rumors. The fear of going out into public will begin to rise and families celebrating holidays will be electing not to go to the sales on the HOT FRIDAY. Investors will take notice within days if not hours of the poor numbers and begin dumping stock. Keep in mind the turn out could decrease by a mere 10 percent and cause a panic on wall street.

The second will be polical implications of lower voter turn out and if the democrats lose their senate majority the race card will be played and will fuel additional unrest in hotspots such as atlanta, illinois, florida and california. In fear of confrotation this will result in a smaller ( although minute) turnout on the thanksgiving sale.

The third is already occuring and will happen moreso in the coming months. The travel industry will experience cripling declines in those willing to travel through the nations airports and many businesses will elect to use other modes of meeting and collaboration. One of the nations most vibrant economies is there in texas and with texas being the launch pad and repeated problems with ebola outbreaks and the decrease in the price of oil will cause dire implications to its until now rock solid economy.

The fourth is investors know our recovery is just a paper tiger and not really as vibrant as the number played by government and its media. Such as the numbers of unemployment declining, but the numbers of people searching for work has declined further. Its a numbers game and many Americans know and are coming to realize our economic recovery is much more stagnant than we are led to believe by the numbers games.
fifth, innovation has come to a halt over the last year, no new apple products worthy of mass responce and no new game stations that havent already been on the market for more than three months. No new TVs to entice buyers to stand in line for and face the chaotic friday. People will be more likely to hold there moneys for more pressing matters.

sixth, More people have adapted in buying online and will not venture out and instead will choose to shop online. While this still introduces money into the economy it will impact resteraunts and brick and mortar stores the places of employment for a large portion of our work force.

seventh , Healthcare and the uncertainty for businesses for the coming year is causing anxiety and reluctance in taking gambles and growth initiatives that go hand in hand with the busiest quarter of the year.

Eight , Nurses and Doctors are taking note of the danger in Ebola and the uncertainty that has resulted from the rise in ebola infections and I predict we will be experiencing an extreme shortage of people whom will put their lives on the line only to be blamed by the CDC for not following protocol when the hazards of their work sharply rise.

Ningth, is the the uncertainty of whats to occur with the policies in place with dealing with russian aggression or perceived aggression, Chnas political unrest (which could soon become the biggest thorn in the side of the US economy), and the war with ISIS or the not war or whatever we are calling it these days. If there is a terrorist attack on US soil it will further destabilize the economy as shoppers and investors will take notice.



This week the world watched as wall street experienced 2 days of tremors at the very notion of an ebola break out. It was quickly explained away by different theories in media, but one could tell the commentators and analysis were shaken.

I mean the big one is coming at some point. It should have been 2008 but they didn't have the police state quite ready yet. Next few months could be. You made a lot of good points.

Also a depression starting in the dead of winter when prices of staples tend to rise anyways would be particularly devastating.

I would say sometime right after new years when people are just getting done with holidays and happiness and going back to work and school.

Either way solid post and let's hope you're wrong

Nothing would make me happier than to see corporate America take a dump.

Thing is rich people love to spend money, shut off the faucet and see what happens.

They will keep spending, with less influx.

Meaning everyone else has more buying power. Less money at the top has got to mean more money somewhere else.

Right?


Would you #en cry if WalMart collapsed? Tears of Joy

It's not corporate America that takes a dump. Its the middle class and low end investors that get robbed. Its cyclic in nature and collectively has been the largest transfer of wealth in our history. Wash, rinse, repeat..."we" get boned and they get rich from inside information and direct manipulation. Better protect your 401k's boys and girls.

these posts are like the people saying when judgment day is.
People have given dates out of "certain judgment from god" for decades, wasn't the most recent rapture supposed to happen in 2013?
Same with this.
i've been hearing about the collapse of the economy for over a decade.
OP raises good points, there is an obvious rational to his reasoning, but just like the rapture, nobody knows when or if it will ever happen, too many variables to even comprehend.
we are not talking about closed systems where you can count the number of forces at play.
things will plateau along: the rich will get richer, the poor will stay poor, and the middle class will complain about always having a little less and buy a PS4 or an iphone for their 10 year old the next month.
Remember the millennium bug? how WITH CERTAINTY it was going to bring us back to pen and paper? the experts talking about it? the software that would test your computer to make sure it was y2k ready?
yet here i am testing out the windows 10 technical preview.
remember all those frankly retarded mayan threads? TOTALLY SURE that planet was going to show up and aliens and whatnot, and now it's 2014 aaaaand still we wait.
truth is, if anything so huge happens to us, the economy, aliens, whatever it may be, it will just fall out of the sky in a way nobody will be able to predict.

What has concrete evidence based upon obvious current events have to do with the Mayan calendar. Its pretty insulting to bundle my post with ludicrous unsustanciated doom porn. Rather than post some blanket response why not dispute the points? Because you cant dispute the points theyre all there in black and white.

The average american has 10K in credit debt, how are they investing in the stock market?

401k's you mean the ones that got canceled scrapped, and pensions lost. Use it or lose it.

As long as corportations rape billions of dollars from the US economy investing in foreign factories
and labor markets, the middle class will continue to shrink as its smaller than ever, now.

We need some kind of reset.

People rarely differentiate between blatant doom porn like the Mayan apocalypse, rapture, or Y2K and legitimately plausible scenarios. We had an economic collapse some 85 years ago. What makes us immune to another?

Also the OP never said he was certain. It's a prediction. That's what a prediction is. You are guessing at something that may or may not happen. He's not making a PROPHECY but a prediction.

Weather forecasters predict weather they don't make prophecies about it. They aren't right a lot of the time. They use information at hand to guess at the future as best they can. So is a weather forecaster the same thing as an insane Christian fundamentalist making a prophecy of rapture? I think not.

Visualize this tommorow morning you wake up and the powers out. You crank up the car to ride to town, but your almost out of gas. Luckily the gas station has a generator,but is charging twice as much for gas. Thankfully, your a prepper and you got cash on hand to pay with. Unfortunately the man with the hungry family noticed you with your stash and decided to take desperate measures. Your a prepper so you got a gun and you kill him. His 3 kids and wife lost any hope of finding a meal because you killed the bread winner. Good on you because theres no more corporate america and everyones better off and happier.

Look I hate that we are so dependant upon corporate america, but its fact and we are unable to change that but to slowly legislate it away. The gung ho survivalist and doomsday preppers all say they cant wait for it but what is it they cant wait for? The above scenario to play out over and over again until only the strong survive?

Isnt that corporate america all over again?

Jesus enters the temple and overturns the financial tables. Happening today. He also turns over the benches (for rest) of the ones selling doves (peace). The peacemakers have no rest. It was a prophecy signifying when he comes into the temple as King of Kings.

Funny you post this today. I couldn't agree more.
Just today, for the first time, I transferred a large sum, (for me
) of my retirement into something a little more tangible than an electron on some bankers computer screen. I will be a little more at peace knowing this is in my control, and not in fear of waking up and hearing I'm sorry, but due to situations beyond our control you can not have access to your money today, maybe not this week either. In fact, your fiat currency will be needed by the government and we thank you for your support.

People on this website sure do love them a big steaming pile of doom porn. Guess they like the idea of a few million people dying from starvation and lack of medication. Like they truly believe the rich folks with foreign investments will not continue to live the lavish lifestyle in other countries. Only the middle down will suffer.

The american economy is intrinsically linked to European economies and especially china so unless a big bank fails I wonder whether the money buffs won't simply invent more twoddle to keep the current system afloat indefinately. We hear collapse is imminent but we have heard this for so long, its booring.

I do see the point that there is so much going on that its possible it could fail, but to my mind the increasing number of bods out of work are really being primed simply to become cannon fodder. Italy, Spain with 50% youth unemployment as well as Greece and other countries means you have the armies simply in waiting to be geared up and the economy to flourish -as it does with warfare.

But ... but ... but ... with half the people dead, won't the rest of us have twice as much money??

This isn't a fair prediction, anyone can see that the US Economy is messed up and it is going to collapse shortly. Predicting two months, well I guess that makes it a viable prediction.

I LIKE to HOPE and think the guerilla marketing tactic is the reason for these ridiculous turn outs.



bgr.com...
Quartz did some good detective work on the four people who were caught on camera this week camping outside the New York Apple Store and learned that they were actually being paid to stand there as part of a guerilla marketing tactic to gin up publicity for their companies.


In regards to the economy:

1. I'm pretty confident that the housing market is being manipulated. I know of numerous houses that have been foreclosed and abandoned for upwards to 5 years and to this day many of them are still abandoned and never have been listed on MLS or put for sale by owner. I think they are hiding inventory to avoid flooding the market and causing prices to crash.

2. I'm facinated by the Walmart MIke Rowe commercial about Walmart spending $250 BILLION dollars over the next 10 years to create new manufacturing jobs in America. Walmart like most companies is about giving profit to its board of directors.

With that said, why would a company that has thrived and built its business around cheap slave labor all the sudden not only want to bring jobs back but actually invest to undo what it has been working for them?

Some possibilites I see:
1. Got a change of heart and want to help humanity and sing kumbaya versus making money for their board of directors.

2. They foresee some issues in the future utilizing slave labor in China in the comming years. But why not move the manufacturing to new upcoming slave markets like Africa?

Regardless the reason why they are willing to bring back manufacturing to the US: One or more of the following will need to happen.

A. Americas economy must tank in order to bring down Americas standard of living to a level that Americans are willing to compete with foreign slave labor countries.

B. Walmart is willing to risk their success up to now to competitors who will utilize those foreign cheap labor force that they release.

C. Walmart sings kumbaya again and is willing to inverst hundreds of billions of dollars and HOPES to reverse the world economic labor market trend. The current trend appears to be, to bring down first world nations labor practices ( standards, work ethics, and williness to be exploited) towards third world nation labor practices, instead of the other way around.

3. Perhaps Walmart and other American companies are being encouraged to not utilize foreign work force not for humantarian purposes but for economic walfare? Not sure how effective this will be as the global market Pandoras box has been open?


With that said, if I had to pick a DOOM P0rn economic collapse date my prediction would be in 10 years.
