WND and ICG ask ‘Is America headed for an economic collapse?’

Is America headed for an economic collapse?

If so, presidential candidates are remaining eerily quiet about what’s being described as “a huge disaster waiting to happen.”

The U.S. stock market is on the verge of a massive collapse, warned David Stockman, OMB director during the Reagan administration,  on CNBC’s “Futures Now” program. He said the recent price action has him even more convinced than ever that the bottom is about to fall out.

Stockman believes the excessive monetary policy from central banks around the world has created a “debt supernova,” and all the signs point to “the end of the central bank enabled bubble,” which could cause a worldwide recession.

In fact, he said, there’s no way to roll back the artificially inflated bubbles the Federal Reserve has caused.

“I think what we are seeing is the beginning evidence that the central bank-driven credit economy is over, and we are in a new era,” he said. “It’s a huge disaster waiting to happen.”

Now that the presidential hopefuls are duking it out in debates, it’s hoped whoever ends up occupying the Oval Office in 2016 will be equipped to handle the seemingly insurmountable challenge of an economic crisis.

For years, Obama has attempted to convince Americans an economic recovery is just around the corner. But more and more, the stark numbers are not supporting this administration’s assurances. Both domestic and international affairs are contributing to increasing concerns that something “big” is imminent.

Financial Times reports the media sector has been “in freefall” since Walt Disney revised its growth outlook for its ESPN sports channel this week. Viacom shares fell by more than 14 percent. Comedy Central, MTV and Paramount Pictures hit earnings forecasts, but missed estimates on revenues. 21st Century Fox closed down more than 6 percent.

Overall, the S&P 500 Media Index fell more than 2 percent on Friday, down 9 percent from its July high. …

CNS News reported on Friday there was a record 93,770,000 Americans not in the American labor force last month, and the labor force participation rate remained at 62.6 percent, exactly where it was in June – a 38-year low. …

While the unemployment rate is still “officially” 5.3 percent, Shadowstats reports the figure is closer to 24 percent.

These reports are just a hint of the true shakiness of the stock market in particular and the economy in general. http://www.wnd.com/2015/08/gop-stars-tight-lipped-on-huge-disaster-waiting-to-happen/#rbUUqf9pvGdLL2Ct.99

Yes, the economy of the USA is shaky and things are worse than they look.  America, meaning both the USA and Canada, are heading for an economic collapse.

Now the WND report above failed to mention US debt or its massive trade imbalances.  Because of the US dollar’s position as the world’s primary reserve currency, this has given the appearance of normalcy, while in reality the USA (as well as Canada) is headed for an economic collapse beyond what WND likely anticipates.  Some commentators are anticipating a collapse this Fall (see also the links at the end of this post).  Others suspect that a collapse could occur next year.  Since the US Federal Reserve has indicated that it could start raising interest rates relatively soon, this could affect the stock market, etc. later this year.

As far as a view from someone else with a COG background goes, I thought I would share something from ICG’s Mark Armstrong.  In his newsletter last night, he had the following comments:

Last night saw the first in a series of debates for hopeful candidates in next year’s presidential election. It was entertaining and at times lively. … But what guarantees do any of us have that the status quo can survive the next year and a half?…

What else could go wrong over the next year and a half? A financial collapse? Out of control spending of fiat currency on every ill-conceived program looks to be designed to bring that about. China is in economic decline and according to reports, selling American debt back to the Federal Reserve. Asian markets are faltering, Europe has a long-term debt crisis and has yet to sort out the Greek debacle. Government spending at home has us on a glide path to catastrophe, and few seem alarmed.

Let me state that the USA could have a major stock market drop in the next year and a half.  This could be expected to affect presidential politics should it occur.  Some believe problems will be more apparent in 2015.  And of course, US debt has risen in 2015 (see also Treasury Secretary: Debt Ceiling Needs to be Raised, Again), and the Bible teaches that such debt will eliminate the nation (Habakkuk 2:6-8).  But a total economic collapse in 2015 or 2016 is too soon.

Notice also the following claim:

We’re One Month Away From Economic Collapse, Author Says
A lot of prophetic teachers are in agreement about September, author John Shorey says on the Jim Bakker Show.
Among their claims is that September will bring financial ruin for the United States in the form of economic collapse.  http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/50842-watch-we-re-one-month-away-from-economic-collapse-author-says

As far as predictions related to September 2015, check out the article September ‘convergence’: a harbinger of potential disaster? and/or the video The ‘Harbinger’ and September 2015.  Many ‘prophetic teachers’ rely on their imaginations and signs that the Bible does not teach about (see also How To Determine If Someone is a True Prophet of God).

Now again this does not mean that the stock market, etc. could not have problems in September.  But as far as a true economic collapse, I intentionally used a picture of cash being swept up from the streets in Hungary at the beginning of this post to illustrate that an economic collapse can be more than a drop in the stock market.

In a sense, hyperinflation worse than Hungary experienced will affect the US dollar.  But I do NOT expect that to happen in the next year and a half.  But it will come.  Some in the media suspect something, but because they do not generally understand biblical prophecy, they do not understand how bad it will get for the USA and Canada (as well as their other Anglo-Saxon descended allies).
