Putin and Russian General Warns of US Collapse In 28 May 2016

Over the past few years, many experts have been warning of a crisis heading our way. More specifically, the concerns have centered on the inevitable collapse of the U.S. dollar. Who has stated that he believes the U.S. financial system is on the road to disaster. Why are they panicking? Well, the short answer is that monetary stimulus is nearly at an end. But what does that mean for U.S. stock markets?

Does it necessarily signal a U.S. dollar collapse in 2016? The answers are far from clear, but there are legitimate fears of an economic collapse. At the very least, a stock market crash is virtually guaranteed. Consider this; at the same time the Federal Reserve is wrapping up its monetary stimulus, we’re seeing a massive reordering of global power. China has evolved from being a regional power to a heavyweight on the international stage. READ MORE: www.disclose.tv... urce=email


Well I thought I'd post this here and see what our members think of this possible scenario and what you think about how realistic this Doomsday for the US really is. I'm not saying I believe it. Some interesting points were made though. It doesn't surprise me with all the mud slinging and finger pointing over the past few years between Russia and the US that we'd see these types of propaganda aimed at each other.

From what I've been reading here at ATS and elsewhere these types of discussions are on the increase.

The comment section is pretty funny.

Enjoy.

Naw. Yea a #ty market crash is not only possible but very likely. But there will be no collapse. Thats hogwash being spouted by speculators to help fuel the panic buying. Most financially responsible educated folks have seen the patterns now and hedge themselves against the threat as it draws near, mitigating the overall devastation on our own portfolios.

For instance, many smart people started drawing down their exposure last fall and turning their assets more liquid, just in case. Right I pump everything into liquidity, and probably wont stop and revise until I see how things are next year around this time. Then I will go back into the volatile market where it will be another 5-7 years before it happens all over again.

Pundits and the media only feign surprise, everyone in this system who isnt cocky knows exactly whats going on, including the actors in Hollywood.

Wont happen. Whoever is President at the time will call on the Most High Federal Reserve (haha) and do another 100 or so billion dollar bailout(s) for Wall Street , the banks , and their own pockets.And , as usual , the people will be left holding the tab

Exactly. The stock market is not the economy, and in the past ten or twenty years it has even stopped being a proxy for the economy. Putin is just trying to distract everyone from Russia's economic train wreck. Rather than use his authoritarian state power to create a diversified economic base, he used income from the extractive industries to "buy off" the population and enrich his cronies.

As for the rest of the BRICs, Brazil has been wracked with corruption, India continues to struggle with social problems, and China's economy has hit a brick wall.

If Putin's gloat comes true and America goes down the tubes, so will the rest of the global economy. Who will buy Russian energy and Chinese consumer goods then?

How old is this video?

It seems a little out of date

Russia cuts off gas supplies to 6 European nations is in this and that is from Jan 2015.

It also talks about the war in Ukraine - that quietly ended about the same time Putin set his eyes on the middle east and helping out embattled Assad.

Based on that, I call bunk on this - it never happened. Russia went into Syria instead.

Seems that even the people that should know don't , or are keeping it quiet . I read this piece by Mike Whitney .

The authors of the report are particularly concerned that the plunge in stock prices and the slowdown in global growth are taking place at the same time that investor confidence in central banks is waning. The Bank Of Japan’s announcement that it planned to introduce negative interest rates (aka–NIRP or negative interest rate policy) in late January illustrates this point. The BOJ hoped that by surprising the market, the policy would have greater impact on borrowing thus generating more growth. But, instead, the announcement set off a “second phase of turbulence” in stock and currency markets as nervous investors sold off risk assets and moved into safe haven bonds. The BOJ’s action was seen by many as act of desperation by a policymaker that is rapidly losing control of the system. According to the BIS:

“Underlying some of the turbulence of the past few months was a growing perception in financial markets that central banks might be running out of effective policy options.”

He was looking at his own economic outlook when he said this.

He just decided to change the country to make it look as though it was the US.

When the non-Russian economic indicators look good, Roberts and Hudson warn that the economy is artificially inflated and is on the verge of collapse. When the economy contracts, they crow that it is the beginning of the end. When it recovers again, they warn that it is over-inflated and will eventually collapse, when it begins to contract....

A free market economy has cyclical features; Keynes figured out how to smooth the cycles out enough to prevent massive disruptions and it worked pretty well for the better part of a century. Unfortunately, speculation has replaced investment, which leads to people trying to game the system, which means that "the house" has to keep changing the rules. The BOJ's negative interest gambit is an example of this.

There are some fundamental features of the current economic system that are in need of adjustment, and it will be a difficult stretch for what Piketty calls the "super-managers," but it's not going to look like Mad Max.

When the Roman Empire fell, the Dark Ages began. Tribes battled tribes and war band leaders styled themselves kings. Libraries burned. The light of Hellenic reason dimmed and superstition spread. In the east of the Empire, a vast bureaucracy lingered on for centuries, accomplishing nothing until it was crushed first by Christian capitalists, then by Muslim jihadists. I wonder what the final collapse of the Pax Americana is really going to look like, and how those eagerly looking forward to it are really going to fare.

With austerity measures and a influx of new labour (refugees) showing up in western economies ,I would or could imagine combined with the retirement of the baby boomer's that cheap labour is the only measure they can look forward to for a profit . Like Russia ,Canada is hurting with lost oil revenues .These oil prices are shrinking the economies ,especially the ones that sell oil . Even the Saudi's had to take measures and have austerity visiting them .China has basically turned their economy to one of a inside fashion but seems to be looking at the new silk road as a big place for them to invest for the future . Aside from the TPP and other things the west is not going to grow or at least grow in a way we people on the street can see . The west seems a bit desperate to get this CO2 (save the planet] paperwork done and have it provide a stream of new income for the people at the top . I think they will just add those numbers to balance sheets and call it GDP ....We pay more and get less . Talk about squeezing the Nickel until the Beaver #s eh .

Those, "eagerly looking forward to it" as you put it, are the ones at the helm, pushing americas might around on the world stage with seeming impunity.

Those trying to wake people up to that are the patriots, the real americans. Those at the top (and their minions) are impostors.

An influx of cheap labor will make Europe competitive with China's cheap labor, while the improving economic conditions for Chinese workers will drive labor costs up there. Ricardo's principle of comparative advantage may take a generation to kick in, but eventually the global economy will seek out its "minimum energy state," like any dynamic system.

Why would those in power actively seek to destroy the basis of their power?

They are blinded by power, can't see the forest for the trees. They think they are exercising their control, something they wield with a distorted sense of justice, really self serving, power mongering.

Whereas the "true patriots" can see more clearly, and therefore need to take power to "fix things," right?

I find it funny how the Russian big wigs seem to be keen to see the US dollar dive but they have not considered how that could affect their industry.

The US citizens are great consumers-if the dollar falls then the domino effect will take hold and Russian exports to the US will be worth next to nothing. The same can be said about china-that juggernaut is slowing and if Putin and his cronies think that they can come out of the inevitable collapse unscathed then they better hold onto something as it will affect them too.

Wrong, real patriots mind their own business outside US borders. They are envoys, preferring to act like they expect others to behave towards them.

Respecting International sovereignty, the right to self determination, not meddling in other countries internal affairs.
