Let me to rub my crystal ball and take a short look into the future.
(Please note: I've got no idea if it's true. I'm just repackaging the information to tell a different tale. This is solely for entertainment purposes).
Ok kids, the story goes like this:
Entering into 2016, the wheels of the world-wide market were coming off. The U.S.A. had just observed one of the biggest transfers of money from governmental to private hands in history-- as Quantitative Easing took dollars from future generations and funnelled it into stock markets.
In doing this, it made a large Wall Street bubble, as companies used inexpensive credit to procure their own shares, lining bank profits all along the way.
Banks were pleased. Consumers, less so.
The restorative steps that had followed the financial crimes of the GFC actually turned out to be actually quite lucrative for the criminals, as it happened.
At any rate, nobody believed that the stock market was sustainable. A crash was a question of when, not if.
At the same time, the European project was coming to pieces. An economic union that forced significantly different economies into bed with one another had been a nightmare for smaller economies. For the some of the more substantial economies, such as Germany, who were now effectively working with a massively undervalued currency exchange rate, and had unfettered access to broadened customer and labour markets, it had essentially been awesome.
It was all coming undone.
And worldwide, anger against global trade deals like the TPP, which made it possible for corporations to sue government if they did anything that effected profits, was growing. Both presidential candidates in the United States were campaigning opposed to it.
People believed they were getting screwed. They were enraged and beginning to wake-up and push back.
This was bad news for the Space-Lizard Illuminati. They didn't want folks waking up. They didn't want people feeling like they were entitled to anything like genuine democracy. They really did not want trade blockades to go up and for the cash streams to stop.
What to do?
Proving that every crisis is an opportunity, they prepared the case for MORE globalisation, not less.
And so for a while, they stired up the wildfires of a populist kickback. They energised and invigorated their rivals.
And they allowed them to have a few victories. First off, it allowed them Brexit (in a surprise, almost questionable, win that nobody saw coming).
Britain, as a nation, was allowed to turn its back on the new world order. Through 2017, populist groups in Italy and France also continued to have significant wins.
There was "The Donald". In another shock victory, Donald Trump knocked out his opponents for the Republican nomination with surprising and devastating ease. With a very unusual free-kick from the FBI just 11 days out from the election, he took his campaign platform of people-focused trade deals and groping women straight into the white house.
Everything was proceeding to plan.
Because at the same time as the space-lizards were energising opposition, they were also manipulating the media to construct a very specific story.
That narrative said that populists like Donald were nothing more than just racist, simple minded Neanderthals. It went to amazing lengths to point out that their concerns were not valid objections with the dissemination of resources and wealth, but just a psychologically dysfunctional aversion of brown people.
And with that, all the pins were in place.
And with that, the whole show was allowed to tip over.
It started off with one of the European banks. Surprise, surpise, they were insolvent. From there, one by one banks across Europe fell. America, China, Governments threw a whole ton of cash at them in the process, and their directors were all put out to a charming pasture in the Italian countryside.
The US stock exchange -- which had been edgy all through 2016-- went into a nose dive. Multiple large super funds went to the wall.
It became named The Great Evaporation.
We left you alone for 5 minutes and looked what happened. You pushed back on globalisation and look where it got you.
You believed you wanted more equality of opportunity, fairer trade rules, protection of the local environment and individual sovereignty. You thought you wanted global corporations to pay tax and to avoid of local politics ... Well, have you learnt anything now?
And don't blame us, we weren't driving when the whole show headed off the road. Blame Trump. Blame Brexit.
Here, listen to this morally righteous hipster.
And with that, resistance to unlimited globalisation became permanently connected with the stench of racism and economic disaster.
You simply just couldn't get it off your shoes. You couldn't even refer to it without somebody comparing you to Hitler.
Effective opposition to their plan for global domination was totally scuttled. And the space lizards laughed and laughed.
What do you think children? Nice story?
If this plays out to be true investing in gold bullion is the only safe option. The task of creating a Gold Individual Retirement Account has become considerably simple. The IRS ruled in 2007 that IRAs can invest in bullion that falls under particular conditions, without any tax issues.
