Will The U.S. Stock Market Crash Soon?

Summary

  • If 8000 years of human history is any guide, when central banks print as much money as they have, a massive global market crash has been the result.
  • There have been no soft landings when debt gets to these extreme levels.
  • Do not panic. There are always solutions.

If 8,000 years of human history is any guide, when central banks print as much money as they have, a massive global market crash has been the result. One of the best known examples is the rise and fall of Rome 2 millennia ago. But there have been numerous other examples of money printing gone wrong. Often, it is contained to a specific country but when the money printing becomes a global phenomenon as it has over the last several years, the result is always a major market catastrophe.

There are no examples in history where such a degree of money printing ended up as a “soft landing.” Countries are mired in massive debt burdens including China. Debt-to-GDP is at all-time highs. Meanwhile, interest rates are at all-time lows. So unlike in 2008 after the great crash, central banks have no more “ammo” to further reduce rates to spark the global economy.

Indeed, for the first time in our lives, the number of luminaries from legendary futures trader Ed Seykota to market historian and billionaire Jim Rogers to Bill Gross to Martin Armstrong, all of whom have top investment track records, have recently said there is a massive price to pay for all the money printing that has taken place globally starting with the US quantitative easing campaign in late 2008 after the great crash. Even the former head of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, has said that this will not end well in his classic understated manner….
