A “Frightening Pattern” Indicate That We Are Heading To A Massive Economic Catastrophe Unlike Anything Ever Seen And Countdown Clock Is Quickly Approaching Zero

Faber  Warns “Everything Will Collapse”

Famed economist Marc Faber appeared on Bloomberg  TV with a harsh, direct warning to investors.

“U.S. monetary policies will destroy the world,” he said, referring to the  new round of stimulus – QE3, or “QE Forever” – the Fed plans to launch this  year.

Faber’s not alone.

A group of his economic peers agree that with more central bank  action like QE3, global economic collapse is imminent. 

In a newly released documentary that went viral last month, a team of  influential economic experts say they have discovered a “frightening pattern” they believe points to a massive economic catastrophe unlike anything ever  seen.

“What this pattern represents is a dangerous countdown clock that’s  quickly approaching zero,” said Keith Fitz-Gerald, the Chief Investment  Strategist for the Money Map Press, who predicted the 2008 oil shock, the credit  default swap crisis that helped bring about the recession, and the Greek and  European fiscal catastrophe that is still wreaking havoc until this  day.

“The resulting chaos is going to crush Americans.”

Another member of this team, Chris Martenson, a global economic trend  forecaster, former VP of a Fortune 300, and an internationally  recognized expert on the dangers of exponential growth in the economy, explained  their findings further:

“We found an identical pattern in our debt, total credit market, and  money supply that guarantees they’re going to fail,” Martenson said.“This pattern is nearly the same as in any pyramid scheme, one that escalates  exponentially fast before it collapses. Governments around the globe are chiefly  responsible.”

Five Mainstream  Economists Sound a Warning

The Wall Street Journal ran an article the likes of which I have  never seen. “The  Magnitude of the Mess We’re In.” It was written by five well-known  economists. It warns readers about a series of highly destructive outcomes of  the federal government’s present fiscal policies. The article says that these  problems are close to being unmanageable.

The first economist involved is George Shultz. He taught at the University of  Chicago and MIT. He served as the Secretary of the Treasury under Nixon and  Secretary of State under Reagan. He served as the Head of the Office of  Management and Budget under Nixon, and also Secretary of Labor under Nixon. I  can think of no other economist with comparable experience at the highest level.  He is an insider’s insider. He is 92 years old – a true elder statesman

The second economist is Michael Boskin. He teaches at the Hoover Institution.  He used to teach at Stanford. He was the head of the Council of Economic  Advisers under the first Bush. Then there was John F. Cogan of Hoover and  Stanford. Then there was Allan Meltzer, who is the most respected historian of  the Federal Reserve System. Finally, there was Stanford’s John Taylor, of “Taylor rule” fame, one of the most respected academic economists in the  USA.

Prepare  for a dismal earnings season: The U.S. earnings  season is set to begin on Oct. 11

Analysts are getting downright bearish as the third-quarter earnings season  approaches. Data from Thomson Reuters shows analysts are expecting a 2.2%  quarterly drop in earnings by S&P 500  companies, which would mark the first decline in profits since the first quarter  of 2009.

The U.S. earnings season is set to begin on Oct. 11, when analysts expect  Alcoa Inc. will report a 94% drop in profit. If the aluminum giant reports even  worse numbers, it will set a dismal tone for the rest of the season.

Analysts are currently a little more optimistic in Canada, forecasting flat  earnings growth, but Peter Buchanan, a senior economist at CIBC World Markets,  expects more downward revisions could be on tap before Canadian companies start  reporting their numbers.
