The United States is going through a very big health crisis and the whole economy has been severely hit. The outlook of the US economy does not look impressive and now economists are predicting that the US economy might plunge into an economic crisis. We have had a historic economic expansion for the last 10 years and this has come to an end because of the current global economic meltdown and panic. The hit on the American economy has been so big and now this is being reflected in the real GDP, employment, consumer consumption and in the industrial production. It is projected that the united states GDP will falter in the first quarter of the year and probably throughout the year. Firms like the Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs and the Bank of America all expecting the US economy to have the worst year in many decades. If the health crisis continues, we will end up in an economic crisis that will be bigger than what we had in 2008. Right now many companies are suspending their operations and this is being reflected in the labor market where the jobless claims are skyrocketing every day.
For many decades, our economy has been debt dependent and this has created the biggest bubble in history. Stock market, education, banking and housing are all big bubbles that have been inflated for many years. However, these bubbles in the American economy have just begun bursting and this global panic is the pin that is popping the bubbles.
The Federal Reserve has created an economy where we have the biggest bubble in history and the current economic crisis is just the beginning. More air will come out of the bubble and a lot of damage will be done to our bloated economy.
The current move by the Trump’s administration to send cash to all Americans will be disastrous to the economy. This is like dropping money from a helicopter. It doesn’t help but instead this will cause extremely high levels of inflation and prices for basic products will just skyrocket in a short time. Pumping more money to the economy does not add any value; we need real product not just paper.
The stock market crash has already begun and economists are predicting that there will be a 40 percent collapse from the all time highs. We are expecting the market to crash further and in the process trillions of dollars will be lost from the stock market. At the same time, the bond market is also headed to the same direction as the stock market. In the last 5 weeks, more than $25 trillion of ‘paper’ wealth has been lost from the markets and this has wiped the gains we have had for the last 3 years.
For the last 10 years, we have had a booming global economy. Currently, we have a global panic and this economic growth looks as if it is coming to an end. The party is finally over! Globally, we are facing a very big economic downturn and we have reached to a point where everything has begun falling apart. The economy has come to an abrupt halt as supply chains break and anxiety spread all over. Millions of businesses have been impacted by the supply chains disruptions and this has triggered the biggest economic meltdown since the 2008 global financial crisis.
For the last two weeks the US stock market has been tanking all across the board. It looks as if a major stock market crash is upon the United States. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has been swinging approximately for 1,000 points in multiple days within the last two weeks. The stock market traders have been panicking because the market has just turned out to be a rollercoaster that they have not seen for many years. The market has been very volatile with up to 4.5 percent movements in a day and all investors are unaware of what will happen next. There is a lot of panic as investors fear that the market will continue tanking because economic indicators are indicating that a big stock market crash will happen. The recent interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve has not done any good to the market.
The financial markets are having the worst performance since the 2008 financial crisis. The S&P has the worst performance in a decade and now it is already down 5 percent. The Europe 600 index has dropped by 5.9 percent while the MSCI Asia Pacific Index sank by 4.1 percent. This is even worse than the 2010 flash crash because we never had such a big drop and the question is what will happen next to the stock market. Will we see a bounce or will the markets continue plummeting.
The US economy has been slowing down and economists are predicting that a major economic collapse is coming. In a recent interview, Guggenheim’s Global CIO Scott Minerd said that the cognitive dissonance in the stock market is stunning as reflected by the ever rising prices and credit spreads. He expressed that this is not a buy the dip market but don’t try to catch a falling knife markets because prices have been plummeting for weeks. The stock market collapse has already begun!
Will the Chinese economic collapse happen in 2020? China is the second largest economy in the world and in the last two decades, China has experienced a significant economic growth. However, the China has many problems like enormous debts, bank runs, an aging population and many others. The growth in China has been fuelled by debts and poor policies and this has created a hyper bubble that will burst with a china’s yuan crash. People are always asking when the economic collapse will happen in China. For the last several years, we have seen several Chinese banks being shut down. Banks like Baoshang, Jinzhou and other banks have been shut within a very short time. These are some of the cases of bank collapse in China and economists are predicting more similar cases in days to come.
Ever since the last stock market crash, unprecedented intervention by the us Government’s Bank has helped the financial system relatively stable. No matter what happened the Fed always solved the problem but they created the biggest stock market bubble in U.S history. Now they facing with the biggest challenge and it looks like they can do nothing to avoid the next financial crisis. They try to solve the problem with the same old way that worked well in the past and on Tuesday they announced an emergency rate cut and instead of rising the stock market started to crash.
This week a lot has happened in the global financial markets and the global stock markets have dropped significantly within a few days and the question that most people are asking is whether this drop will culminate in a global stock market collapse.
The Federal Reserve has been targeting the stock market as a way of boosting economic growth. They have been pumping billions of dollars into the stock market for many years and now, the prices are inflated. The current global panic as a result of the outbreak has triggered stock selling and this is what is causing the stocks prices to tumble every single day and in the process wealth worth billions of dollars is being lost.
It is official now, the United States national debt has hit the 23 trillion dollar milestone, that’s twenty-three with twelve zeros after.
That’s a pretty staggering figure — $23 trillion dollars in debt and climbing every second of every day. And in order to give you an idea, that is basically every taxpayer is in debt for $186.576 dollars. And if you were to break it down evenly across every citizen in the United States including those who don’t pay taxes, every United States citizen is $69.735 dollars in debt. And the debt to gross domestic product ratio is now a 106.6 percent. That is very significant; for that ratio to be over a hundred percent, it means that it’s above and beyond 100 percent would be an equal right to the gross domestic product, but it’s now above it by six-point six percent. Unfortunately, the economic collapse always arrives eventually, and our future is looking extremely bleak at the moment. And as the argument goes, the more the debt spirals out of control, the more you’re going to have inflation, the more you’re going to have undisciplined frivolous spending. So a lot of different people will have a lot of different opinions when it comes to this subject, the more and more this national debt figure climbs. And as you know, nobody’s really doing anything to curtail it, not the FED, not the president, nobody.
