Economy

Since 1913, the Federal Reserve has gone through 18 rate hiking cycles. In 18 out of 18 cases, those rate hiking cycles have ended in either a recession or a market crash. Do you really think that the 19th time will be different?

Unfortunately, most ordinary Americans simply do not grasp the importance of what is happening, because we have never seen anything like this in modern American history.  The two largest economies on the entire planet are now in a state of economic conflict, and there is no way that this is going to end well.

Many Americans seem to believe that the U.S. economy is an unsinkable ship, and at this moment we are heading directly for an absolutely enormous iceberg.

Major storm clouds are gathering, and it isn’t going to take much to push the U.S. economy into another major crisis.

The ripple effects of any trade war will be felt by those regular citizens in the nations participating in such economic warfare, while the ruling classes of “elite” humans will be shielded from the effects of their policies.

Anyone that is optimistic about the global economy in light of these most recent developments is simply not being rational, because we have never seen storm clouds this big on the horizon in all of modern American history.

Once a trade war begins, it can potentially last for many years, and let us not forget that history has shown us that trade wars can often lead to shooting wars.

We know that some among the elite are already discussing the possibility of “a crashing economy” as a way to “get rid of Trump”.  In the short-term, however, the best way to neuter Trump politically would be to have Democrats do extremely well in the 2018 mid-term elections.

If the major banks and governments around the world had left the cryptocurrency industry alone, it probably would have done just fine.
