The Contrarian

“In the investment markets, what everyone knows is usually not worth knowing.”

Will We See An Economic Collapse?

Brandon Smith of Alt-market.com believes so. We think his viewpoint is food for thought, although we don’t necessarily agree with all the theories and conclusions. For some readers his thoughts seem “far out,” or outlandish.

However, we have seen the “impossible” coming true since the year 2000. The world, and the USA, have been transformed, and not for the better. Anyone who would have predicted some of the changes 15 years ago would have been declared crazy or worse.

Zero interest rates, negative interest rates, central banks creating over $13 TRILLION of credit out of thin air, stock market collapses that allegedly “no one could predict” although we did, banking crises where depositors are forced to bail out the bank (bail-in), and much more.

On a smaller scale of importance, how about anyone using the ladies or men’s toilets or showers as they feel that day, “safe zones” and free speech zones on campus, comfort dogs to students who are sad by the election outcome, micro-aggression which is complimenting someone on a nice outfit, etc.

Here is what Brandon Smith, someone we don’t know, wrote in a recent article. This is an excerpt:

I never make a cold prediction without a concrete rationale for why I hold that view.  I always break down the reasons and evidence that bring sense to them.  Some analysts might be content to simply flip a coin and make a call without explanation; I am not.

As far as the Trump election win is concerned, this is what I said in June of this year:

“In light of the Brexit I’m going to have to call it here and now and predict that the most likely scenario for elections will be a Trump presidency.  Trump has consistently warned of a recession during his campaign and with the Brexit dragging markets lower over the next few months, he will probably be proven “prophetic.”

… Even if Trump is a legitimate anti-establishment conservative, his entry into the Oval Office will seal the deal on the economic collapse, and will serve the globalists well.  The international banks need only pull the plug on any remaining life support to the existing market system and allow it to fully implode, all while blaming Trump and his conservative supporters.

The mainstream media has been consistently comparing Trump supporters to Brexit supporters, and Trump himself has hitched his political wagon to the Brexit. This fits perfectly with the globalist narrative that populists and conservatives are killing the global economy and placing everyone at risk.”

All of my predictions are rooted in a particular premise; that the global elites have been, since 2008 at least, deliberately setting the stage for an evolving international financial crisis greater than any other seen in modern history.  This crisis is a means to an end.  Globalists use one strategy above all others to achieve their goals — the Hegelian Dialectic; problem, reaction, solution.

As I have documented for years, the elites openly call for the ultimate eradication of national sovereignty and the formation of a single world economy, a single world currency and, eventually, a single world government.  In order to make this omelet, they intend to break a few eggs (and collapse a few economies).  By blaming “national sovereignty” (and the people that defend it) for this crisis, they hope to convince the masses that the only practical solution is total centralization.  You can read my in-depth analysis and evidence of this in my article “The Economic End Game Explained.

I also specifically predicted the Brexit and the Trump win based on another premise; that the elites are allowing conservative movements to take political power in certain regions, only to remove stimulus support from the global economy afterward.  That is to say, I successfully predicted the Brexit and the Trump win because I understand and accept the reality that conservatives and liberty activists are not “winning;” we are being set up as scapegoats for a financial crash that the globalists already created.

Again, people can either say I am lucky, or that there is something to my position, but the fact of the matter is I have been right and I will probably continue to be right.  This brings us to what will happen going into 2017.

The election of Donald Trump signals a sea change in not only global politics, but more importantly, global economic stability and social developments.  As frenetic and insane as 2016 has been, 2017 will be drastically more chaotic.  Some of these changes will be obvious, some of them will once again only be visible to a handful of people in the world.  Let’s start first with my happier predictions…
