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.
