We Are In FAR Worse Shape Than We Were Just Prior To The Last Great Financial Crisis

March 11, 2014 8:17 am est

We Are In FAR Worse Shape Than We Were Just Prior To The Last Great Financial Crisis – None of the problems that caused the last financial crisis have been fixed.  In fact, they have all gotten worse.  The total amount of debt in the world has grown by more than 40 percent since 2007, the too big to fail banks have gotten 37 percent larger, and the colossal derivatives bubble has spiraled so far out of control that the only thing left to do is to watch the spectacular crash landing that is inevitably coming.

Unfortunately, most people do not know the information that I am about to share with you in this article.  Most people just assume that the politicians and the central banks have fixed the issues that caused the last great financial crisis.  But the truth is that we are in far worse shape than we were back then.  When this financial bubble finally bursts, the devastation that we will witness is likely to be absolutely catastrophic.

10 Warnings Signs Of Stock Market Exuberance – Imagine that you are speeding down one of those long and lonesome stretches of highway that seems to fall off the edge of the horizon.  As the painted white lines become a blur, you notice a sign that says “Warning.”  You look ahead for what seems to be miles of endless highway, but see nothing.  You assume the sign must be old therefore you disregard it, slipping back into complacency.

A few miles down the road you see another sign that reads “Warning: Danger Ahead.”  Yet, you see nothing in distance.  Again, a few miles later you see another sign that reads “No, Really, There IS Danger Ahead.”  Still, it is clear for miles ahead as the road disappears over the next hill.

You ponder whether you should slow down a bit just in case.  However, you know that if you do it will make you late for your appointment.  The road remains completely clear ahead, and there are no imminent sings of danger.  So, you press ahead.  As you crest the next hill there is a large pothole directly in your path.  Given your current speed there is simply nothing that can be done to change the following course of events.  With your car now totaled, you tell yourself that there was simply “no way to have seen that coming.”

It is interesting that, as humans, we fail to pay attention to the warnings signs as long as we see no immediate danger.  Yet, when the inevitable occurs, we refuse to accept responsibility for the consequences.

Buckle up! Stocks in ‘risky territory’ – The founder of The Vanguard Group, which manages about $2.5 trillion among its various funds, said in an interview on Monday’s edition of “Closing Bell” that the underlying value of corporate America will continue to offer investors returns over the long term even if the market suffers a serious plunge.

While famed investor Seth Klarman has recently turned bearish, warning of a potentially catastrophic asset price bubble, Bogle thinks investors will be better off steeling their nerves and diversifying, rather than trying to time the market.

This is “risky territory,” and Klarman is “heck of a lot smarter than I am,” Bogle said. As the Fed tapers its asset-buying program and raises currently depressed interest rates, stocks could suffer a drop of as much as 20 or 25 percent, he said.

Richard Russell – Devastating Truth About The United States – The US is now actually borrowing to pay off the interest on its huge and growing debt.  The Treasury continually issues bonds.  But who will buy them?  Can you believe it, the US is reduced to actually buying its own debt via the Federal Reserve.  What does the Fed buy our debt with?  It buys our own debt with money that it conjures up out of thin air by means of a bookkeeping entry.  The Fed has been doing this for years and the Fed’s basket of bonds is now over $4 trillion dollars worth of assorted bonds.

The continuing buying of bonds (QE), now $60 billion every meeting, has driven stocks up to overvalued levels.  My stance is to sit with gold, and to watch history unfold.  Every speck of gold ever discovered or mined has value today.  This is a fact that gold haters choose to ignore.  Gold represents pure wealth and it does not need the backing of any group of men or of any nation.  The dollar was originally described as a specific weight of silver.  Gold is both a currency and an item of pure wealth.

Gold is frequently mentioned in the Bible, and desire for it is built into the DNA of the human race.  I’ve chosen to sit with gold and watch history unfold.  If the market continues higher, I will not be envious, since I am where I want to be.  If the market lapses into a bear market, I’ll be happy to be on the sidelines, and I’ll hope for the best.

Forget about the damn ups and downs of the stock market and the precious metals market – You should only have a certain percentage in them anyway. What could you do with another 15-20% of your portfolio? Hold it in the palm of your hand!

COLORED DIAMOND SALES STRONG AT ALL PRICE POINTS – Men are choosing engagement rings with “a refined, good quality SI/VS to color ratio and rare pink, green or both colors in one ring,” Chabert said. The quality of the colour is more important than the size of the diamond to their consumers. “It’s not bling-bling, but that’s not the point,” she said.

“When you go for high quality and color, size is secondary as the ring shines incredibly regardless of the size.” She said the trend “small is beautiful” will continue into the holiday season. “Customers are looking for something unique with fancy coloured diamonds incorporated with discreetly elegant new techniques.” She added, “In the next six months we believe we’ll see more shoppers going for less generic and more higher-quality products.

That being said, there’s fewer and fewer natural colored diamonds being produced, and if the prices rise, it’s because it is becoming rarer. Now with a wider range of clients no longer left out of the mix of being able to possess these little shiny treasures, we expect to see another 5 percent rise this year in pink and green colours along with yellow and very deep browns – bringing 2013-2014 to a rise of 15 percent in fancy colours.” JNA
