He suggested some unknown agents would attack the US economically (not physically) in the last half of August and:
...with very high probability, will bring the financial catastrophe to the U.S.
Whereas what happened was that in September some people flew passenger planes into to WTC and the Pentagon and there was no "financial catastrophe" at all. In fact the economy has grown steadily since the attacks.
The stuff about the dates is bunk. I have visited Russia 3 times in the last 5 years, and I can tell you for a fact that they work to the same calender as us in the West. When I arranged to see my Russian friend in August we both were talking about exactly the same month, so I didn't turn up 10 days late. The Church may well stick to Russian Julian system for it's religious calender, however this bloke was an economist not an Orthodox priest.
The fact that the US economy is a "house of cards" is hardly a unique thought and is the position of many left leaning economists. However it seems to have resisted collapse for quite a while now....
All in all, if this was a prediction is was a terrible one.
