20 Early Warning Signs That We Are Approaching A Global Economic Meltdown

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog,

Have you been paying attention to what has been happening in Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, Ukraine, Turkey and China?  If you are like most Americans, you have not been.  Most Americans don't seem to really care too much about what is happening in the rest of the world, but they should.  In major cities all over the globe right now, there is looting, violence, shortages of basic supplies, and runs on the banks.  We are not at a "global crisis" stage yet, but things are getting worse with each passing day.  For a while, I have felt that 2014 would turn out to be a major "turning point" for the global economy, and so far that is exactly what it is turning out to be.  The following are 20 early warning signs that we are rapidly approaching a global economic meltdown...

#1 The looting, violence and economic chaos that is happening in Argentina right now is a perfect example of what can happen when you print too much money...

For Dominga Kanaza, it wasn’t just the soaring inflation or the weeklong blackouts or even the looting that frayed her nerves.

 

It was all of them combined.

 

At one point last month, the 37-year-old shop owner refused to open the metal shutters protecting her corner grocery in downtown Buenos Aires more than a few inches -- just enough to sell soda to passersby on a sweltering summer day.

#2 The value of the Argentine Peso is absolutely collapsing.

#3 Widespread shortages, looting and accelerating inflation are also causing huge problems in Venezuela...

Economic mismanagement in Venezuela has reached such a level that it risks inciting a violent popular reaction. Venezuela is experiencing declining export revenues, accelerating inflation and widespread shortages of basic consumer goods. At the same time, the Maduro administration has foreclosed peaceful options for Venezuelans to bring about a change in its current policies.

 

President Maduro, who came to power in a highly-contested election last April, has reacted to the economic crisis with interventionist and increasingly authoritarian measures. His recent orders to slash prices of goods sold in private businesses resulted in episodes of looting, which suggests a latent potential for violence. He has put the armed forces on the street to enforce his economic decrees, exposing them to popular discontent.

#4 In a stunning decision, the Venezuelan government has just announced that it has devalued the Bolivar by more than 40 percent.

#5 Brazilian stocks declined sharply on Thursday.  There is a tremendous amount of concern that the economic meltdown that is happening in Argentina is going to spill over into Brazil.

#6 Ukraine is rapidly coming apart at the seams...

A tense ceasefire was announced in Kiev on the fifth day of violence, with radical protesters and riot police holding their position. Opposition leaders are negotiating with the government, but doubts remain that they will be able to stop the rioters.

#7 It appears that a bank run has begun in China...

As China's CNR reports, depositors in some of Yancheng City's largest farmers' co-operative mutual fund societies ("banks") have been unable to withdraw "hundreds of millions" in deposits in the last few weeks. "Everyone wants to borrow and no one wants to save," warned one 'salesperson', "and loan repayments are difficult to recover." There is "no money" and the doors are locked.

#8 Art Cashin of UBS is warning that credit markets in China "may be broken".  For much more on this, please see my recent article entitled "The $23 Trillion Credit Bubble In China Is Starting To Collapse – Global Financial Crisis Next?"

#9 News that China's manufacturing sector is contracting shook up financial markets on Thursday...

Wall Street was rattled by a key reading on China's manufacturing which dropped below the key 50 level in January, according to HSBC. A reading below 50 on the HSBC flash manufacturing PMI suggests economic contraction.

#10 Japanese stocks experienced their biggest drop in 7 months on Thursday.

#11 The value of the Turkish Lira is absolutely collapsing.

#12 The unemployment rate in France has risen for 9 quarters in a row and recently soared to a new 16 year high.

#13 In Italy, the unemployment rate has soared to a brand new all-time record high of 12.7 percent.

#14 The unemployment rate in Spain is sitting at an all-time record high of 26.7 percent.

#15 This year, the Baltic Dry Index experienced the largest two week post-holiday decline that we have ever seen.

#16 Chipmaker Intel recently announced that it plans to eliminate 5,000 jobs over the coming year.

#17 CNBC is reporting that U.S. retailers just experienced "the worst holiday season since 2008".

#18 A recent CNBC article stated that U.S. consumers should expect a "tsunami" of store closings in the retail industry...

Get ready for the next era in retail—one that will be characterized by far fewer shops and smaller stores.

 

On Tuesday, Sears said that it will shutter its flagship store in downtown Chicago in April. It's the latest of about 300 store closures in the U.S. that Sears has made since 2010. The news follows announcements earlier this month of multiple store closings from major department stores J.C. Penney and Macy's.

 

Further signs of cuts in the industry came Wednesday, when Target said that it will eliminate 475 jobs worldwide, including some at its Minnesota headquarters, and not fill 700 empty positions.

#19 The U.S. Congress is facing another deadline to raise the debt ceiling in February.

#20 The Dow fell by more than 170 points on Thursday.  It is becoming increasingly likely that "the peak of the market" is now in the rear view mirror.

And I have not even mentioned the extreme drought that has caused the U.S. cattle herd to drop to a 61 year low or the nuclear radiation from Fukushima that is washing up on the west coast.

In light of everything above, is there anyone out there that still wants to claim that "everything is going to be okay" for the global economy?

Sadly, most Americans are not even aware of most of these things.

All over the country today, the number one news headline is about Justin Bieber.  The mainstream media is absolutely obsessed with celebrity scandals, and so is a very large percentage of the U.S. population.

A great economic storm is rapidly approaching, and most people don't even seem to notice the storm clouds that are gathering on the horizon.

In the end, perhaps we will get what we deserve as a nation.

Now this article comes from "'The Economic Collapse Blog", seriously a "blog" dedicated to economic collapse. That in itself is an indicator of the bias of the writer. show this too if you're neutral http://profit.ndtv.com/news/corporates/article-tcs-raises-hiring-target-...

".... Occuring at the National Press Club in DC on January 14, 'The World in 2050: Talent Mobility and the Future of Jobs' event sought answers to the fundamental questions of why global businesses face significant challenges in finding qualified talent with millions of STEM positions emerging..."

 

But showing this, the full truth, would go against your agenda, no?

To be fair a lot of these 20 points are ridiculous to take as a measure of global crisis approaching.

 

Argentina has collapsed before.

Ukraine is just rioting, nobody gives a fuck.

Turkish Lira? Who cares?

 

Those things don't have any significant impact that can trigger a global economic meltdown...

Yeah but he's artfully referring to the 'brand new' all time record highs as opposed to the 'old' all time record highs. And the 'all time' record highs are far more important than the 'subset of time' record highs.

When the sheeple rolled over as the banking cartel and political elite raliroaded the fools and allowed unsecured bank debt holders to use public money to bail them out and all those corportate bonuses based on ridiculous leverage over a decade of greed, crimes, and lies needed to be paid out despite bankrupting their companies, they and we will indeed "keep bitching"

Its only in the years ahead as the disparity from this heist continues to escalate and the fat fools are unable to lazily live off the system in the comfort they have been used to, that we may get those clouds for real.

increasingly loans are becoming subprime but are called out as prime. dumbed down loans match dumbed down people. their back is covered as we found out in 07-08. so wtf. sign and live for the day. as i watch the markets correct i have a sic feeling that this finally getting to a point that dawn an age feudlalism-empires desparate, empire deplete of leadership based on sound priciples of the cycles of life and sound money(of course). like, fucken - eh man, cant you see the obvious?

all, activity financial is running on thin air-ready to drop to a point that beckons choas. a system based on non-productive assets, like a home built at the base of a volcano or a home in the flood zone or a home built on sand.

are humans this dumb? must be, plan, plan, plan b = find a place  away from major population centers. find a few like minded and meet regularily to tweek your plan. go into detail, as major roads will be closed. think martial law and i am stranded. if you think this is far fetched you are probably in debt and feel trapped, rightfully so. use this echo bubble to rid yourself of your excess real estate. it is your achiles heal. determine what you are willing to fight for and the rest is flight.

from that location the rest falls into place. cue H.Horseman for basic starting point of a new game...

a heart felt thanks to the most savy posters for your many insights...

We either have private property or we have slavery.

Prior to this great episode in American freedom, the world was run this way, as a feudal system. But when this government was created, it was created to support the market system.  This government was to be limited; it was intended that the private system would grow and grow, that a greater and greater prosperity would ensue, and that the government would come along to protect the rights that provided that growth.

But when the International-bankers founded their private Fed cartel and gained control of America’s money supply and, thus, all commerce, suddenly it was the government that was going to grow and grow and the private sector was going to provide the value for the new tyrant. And thus began debt slavery as the bankers and the corporations around them began depriving the people of their property.

The reason for America is private property, so people can have something. We are not on this earth to be slaves. Without private property we are slaves. It has been proven a million times over that the opposite of private property is slavery. If you don’t own anything, somebody owns you. It can be the socialists or it can be the Maos.

And the answer is to take them out and hang them.

“How can a man speak freely if there is no spot on which he and his audience have the right to stand? How can he practice his religion if he has no right to own a religious edifice, or to his own person? How is a free press to exist if the materials are not in private ownership? With state ownership, nothing can be done except by command or permission. A slave is under command and permission.

“He is not free.” -- Isabel Patterson, The God of the Machine

+100, new game. Excellen insight.

The Rothschilds were involved in the American Revolution.  They got the soldiers from Hesse for King George.  They received a commission for each soldier supplied AND a portion of the life insurance premium when one died.

We can surmise they were involved in fomenting the revolution as well, because of the huge amount of profit they would make.

Perhaps they were also lending money to King George and charging huge amounts of interest, which would be the reason King George raised taxes. And the excessive taxation led to the revolution.

At any rate, making it a free country allowed those who originally enslaved us the freedom to come to America and enslave us all over again.

And what could be easier.  The average American has no 5 year plan, nor 10 year, nor 100 year plan, nor 1000 year plan, as the Rothschilds do.  The average American's plan, if he plans at all, consists of drinking beer on the weekend and watching a game on TV.

That the Rothschilds have at least 100 year plans can be shown by their comments to the Tsar at the time of the war of 1812. The Tsar did not want a central bank in Russia run by the Rothschilds.  The Rothschilds controlled the Bank of England, and there by controlled England.  They engineered the war of 1812 to force a central bank upon America. The Tsar came in on the side of America to prevent the Rothschilds from establishing a central bank in America. [Why are we not taught these things in school?]

 

This so enraged the Rothschilds that they vowed to kill the Tsar and all his family.  It took them 100 years to do it, but they did.  This demonstrates that all things are possible if you have a plan.

I've come to the conclusion the only serious economic activity going on in this country is car purchases. Everywhere I go people are driving new high end vehicles. At my work, people who make less than half what I do are driving Mercedes and Lexuses. I'm astounded. We have no budget for a new car and the idea of a 97 month car loan tells us others really can't afford a car either. People either can't do math, are pathetically stupid or are drugged up to the point they can't perceive reality.

In 1994 the Mexicans were stealing 10,000 cars a month out of Los Angeles.  The rate of theft has increased since then.  Multiply that by the number of cities they have conquered.  Also add to that all the rest of the stuff they steal.  That is a huge amount of economic activity. Just welfare fraud by Mexicans is over 500 Billion a year.

This is something I am so confused about. Western women can boast they have the best lives anywhere in the world. The right to education, rights to abortion, freedom to pursue any job or profession. They cannot be beaten under the auspices of a religion. Yet, they are eerily quiet when a very strict religion that would quickly subjugate them if given the chance starts to infiltrate their world. I have several Persian women friends who are fighting for women's rights in the Middle East and are horrified by their tales. Some of their compatriots in Iran have been beaten for days in prison for defying oppressive treatment. I am amazed of their courage and wish I could see some of it here in American women. I guess when you lead a life of privilege for so long you become lazy and complacent.

The worst manifestation of this "no losers" mantra might be the Special Olympics. Have any of the (apparently) guilt-ridden Special Olympics organizers ever paused to consider whether or not running races, leaping hurdles, throwing shot, long jumping, etc. makes a mentally retarded child (or adult) less retarded, or conveys any meaningful benefit to the "winners" of such silliness?

Seems to me the purpose of such exhibitions is to make (generally leftist) moral busybodies feel better about the fact that retarded people exist. Special Olympics certainly doesn't help the participants, whether they did their personal best or not.

Kudlow: "free market capitalism will overcome!" And then: "but I'm worried the Fed will do something stupid like taper More at their next meeting!" So sad, he doesnt even realize when he contradicts himself in two sentences. And all of his conclusions begin with stating the "facts" that "Europe is improving, the Us is growing, and China is going great!" The man will require potty training in the next year or so.

"trading dollars for gold." everyone here should love this stuff. there really is a point where you're buying a country.

what would make me laugh is a rate of return on a savings account.

then I'll know the world has come to an end.

in the meantime "you'll know when everyone gets called to go over to someplace"...and, yeah...I'm totally serious. There is a point where this becomes "all too real all too quickly."

one week? ten days? in the world of "false flags" I'm counting about 200 of them right now.

"take your pick for the drop down menu, sir."

and to me "that's what's different this time." I know this won't be well received but near as I can tell there really is no going back this time. we've gone from "arsenal of democracy" to "Gods of War" as a result of being "successful." (meaning in the policy sense...being "saved" from the Great Depression as it were.) The old saw in history is "World War I was a surprise but World War II was not."

Again...we'll see...but these "affairs" can move very quickly once it comes time to "appropriate" things...and there is nothing left to steal.

I say again "short this market at your peril."

Saw the same shit. Kudlow is so out of touch and living in a bubble. He treats those govt numbers like scripture , but they are all distorted. He is right about free markets leading us to a better life , but the game is rigged by the elites. They have all the cards , make the rules , and rig the game. The rest of us have no hope, but we do have lots of bullets.

In simpler times this would be called a depression.  

Decades from now, maybe the word 'recovery' will be as taboo as the word 'depression' is today.

"Bill, tell me how you're feeling.  I dunno, Doc, I just can't seem to get out of my own way.  I sleep a lot, I feel tired all the time, I'm angry and sad a lot and nothing seems to interest me any more.  Bill, as your doctor, I have to say that you're exhibiting all the classic symptoms of recovery.  Is it serious, Doc?  Well, Bill, if you keep on going like this you might just decide to kill yourself because of your acute recovery."  Etc., etc.

Just one comment for SYNDER bitch the CHINESE stock market is sky-rocket while the USA heads to the toilet.

Get real, Synder is as close to JEEBUS as Hitler is to Judaism.

There is not one item on this list, that hasn't been already posted by TYLER this week, so this is just an attempt to stir up the toilet bowl.

In rural CHINA there was never a one child limit, only in the city's.

In China, men go to Laos, Myanmar, or Vietnam everyday for wives; where there are a surlplus of women. Nabbing a CHINESE man in LAOS in like winning the lottery for LAOS villagers.

Human females in ASIA are readily available.

In INDIA human life is so cheap that CONDOM, costs more than a woman.

INVEST, BITCHEZ!!!!!!!!

 

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/how-to-invest-in-the-hottest-stock-sect...

 

Industry-momentum portfolios — which jump into and out of various sector funds in an attempt to profit from those performing best at any given time — had a very good 2013.

In fact, nine of the 10 most profitable mutual-fund portfolios last year — out of the more than 250 monitored by the Hulbert Financial Digest — pursued such a strategy, also referred to as “industry rotation.” These nine produced an average gain of 41%, in contrast to a 32% return for the S&P 500, assuming dividends were reinvested.

Unlike many other strategies that lead the performance rankings in a given year, only to lose much or all of it in the next, many industry-momentum portfolios sport impressive long-term returns as well. Six of the nine that ranked highly in 2013 have been around for at least a decade, and each of them outperformed the S&P 500 over this longer period as well.

Of course, not all industry-momentum strategies beat the market. But enough of them do over the long term to warrant a closer look.

Though momentum strategies are quite popular on Wall Street, many investors who follow them focus on individual stocks as opposed to industries. They constantly reshuffle their portfolios to own those stocks that recently have performed the best and shun those that have performed the worst — an approach that can lead to a large number of transactions and associated costs.

This focus on individual stocks appears to be largely unnecessary, according to Tobias Moskowitz, a finance professor at the University of Chicago. He says investors can capture much, if not most, of the “momentum effect” among larger-cap stocks by focusing on industries rather than individual stocks.

In other words, the bulk of the outperformance that typically comes from buying high-momentum stocks comes from their being in industries that are themselves beating the market.

The investment implication of this research doesn’t mean you should invest in just the one or two top-performing industry funds, says James Lowell, editor of an industry-momentum advisory service called Fidelity Sector Investor. Such an approach would be riskier than most investors would be willing tolerate, since it involves putting all your eggs in just one or two baskets, he says.

Lowell’s top industry-momentum strategy, which he calls the “Technology Plus” portfolio, is in first place for 10-year returns among mutual-fund strategies tracked by the Hulbert Financial Digest, with a 14% annualized return in contrast to the S&P 500’s 7.5%. “Diversification is a core principle of any great momentum model,” he says.

Each of the top industry-momentum strategists constructs his model portfolio to be more diversified than would be the case if he owned only the industry-specific funds with the best recent performance. On average they recommend that their model portfolios contain six separate funds. And they favor funds that tend to move independently of each other.

That means, for example, that they wouldn’t recommend owning both an energy fund and an energy-services fund, even if both were at the top of the rankings for recent performance.

Another way to reduce the risks otherwise associated with a pure momentum strategy is to allocate to it only a portion of the funds you otherwise have invested in stocks. Lowell, for example, recommends you allocate no more than 10% of your stock funds to his industry-momentum strategy.

Most of the top-performing industry-momentum strategists also favor actively managed industry funds over exchange-traded funds that track an industry benchmark. This isn’t because all active industry funds beat their benchmarks. Instead, according to Lowell, it is because a good manager has a better chance of beating his benchmark when his industry itself is hot.

JFK had many bright ideas that would have made America a greater democracy and free market nation, less dependent on the military industrial complex, thus a bullet in the back of the head was greeted with great joy by America's elites. As today, their puppet Obama talks all liberal, while overseeing things like the TPP, a charter to enshrine international corporate control. Or to spy on every living soul on the planet 24/7. The Black Bush is worse than the white Bush. America will never be allowed to elect a man like Kennedy again, they will get corporate military industrial complex puppet men like Obama the stooge of the elites. A fine target for right wing hate, while he works to make America a plantation economy with the 1% as overlords. The Republican versus Democrat hoax is all fake, they all work for the same boss.

In sniper school they take guys to that site to teach 'triangulated shooting', the MARINES consider the JFK shooting as the finest example of what a team of PRO's can do in all of SNIPING history.

JFK is texbook classic of how coordinated teams of trained snipers can walk away from a kill, and never get caught.

*

Just stating trivia from when I went to sniper school, when they taught us 'coordinated-triangulated shooting' this was the preferred real-world classic for all to model.

Essentially 3 guys at 120 degree's shoot, with perfect synchronization ( time ), its take months of training.

The team would have had to drive many times down the road in front of the depository to get the timing just right, meaning a lot of trial runs would have had to taken place in the preceding days.

If you ever see any raw 1963's newspapers from the first 1-3 days of the shooting there 100's of witnesses  that saw shooters from the classic sites, but by the 3rd day the entire MSM was all on the same shooter, ... OSWALD.

And no, JC... they were not killed by Left-Winged-Marxists.  It was the money power located at 32º03'52.84N  34º46'40.24E who were the executors.  Let the wise speak only of that which they know.

Yep, and JFK also advocated "NATIONAL SERVICE", another HITLER volunteer work program for youth.

"Not ask what your country can do for you, ask how you can get on your knees and serve your country" - JFK

Teddy Roosevelet (USA prez) said it better in 1907 "There is exists a secret government behind the one you see that controls all"

I remain convinced that was why he was shot on the campaign train. The same as my hero, Andrew Jackson, two shots attempted in the Capitol during the bank crisis. Jackson had to be restrained from attacking the shooter.

Teddy was part of it, he ought to know.  He was the straw man that drained enough votes from McKinley to get Woodrow Wilson elected so Wilson could promote and help to enact the agenda of the elite shadow government.

 

WW was an evil stupid, "useful idiot" of the nascent NWO.

The further into the past you go the brighter the sun.  Incremental fixes shoudl have been done periodically for decades.  And for all these decades anytime anyone mentioned small adjustments they were shoutted down and demonized.  

And now here we are.

#21 Recently, the greatest attack since 9/11 occurred: The soul of America targeted! Facebook.

A Princeton University study, released to the public without permission, declared that AmeriZuckbook, may decline by 80% in short order. 

What did WE, AmeriBook, do in response?

Our Fatherland, Facebook Inc., founded under great duress in 2004, righted our patrionage!

Princeton and Facebook. Face to face!

What a stellar battle of greatness! Princeton, around since the 1700's, against Faceberg. circa '04

Rename this country already. THE FACEBOOK of STATES. Your Face....Booked as revenue...
