David Stockman Warns “Gold Is The Only Safe Asset Left” – “We Are Heading For A Thundering Collision In The Bond Market” (Video)

– David Stockman Warns “Gold Is The Only Safe Asset Left”:

Via Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog blog,

Record high stock and bond prices are flashing danger signs to former Reagan White House Budget Director David Stockman.

Stockman contends,

I don’t think we are going to have a liquidity crisis.  I think it’s going to be a value reset.  I think there is going to be a jarring downward price adjustment both in the stock market and in the bond market.

 This phantom or phony wealth that has been created since the last crisis is going to basically evaporate.”

So, what asset is safe? Stockman says gold and goes onto explain,

David Stockman: The Illusion of Growth

The Illusion of Growth:

The Wall Street Journal published a superb example of hopium recently in a sunny-side-up story entitled “U. S. Manufacturing Rides Rising Tide, Buoyed by Global Growth, Optimism.”

Indeed, this lazy cheerleading excuse for journalism captured the sum and substance of why the punters keep buying the dips despite troubles gathering all around.

That is, as the tax bill falters, the crusade to remove the Donald from office gathers strength, the Fed moves into balance sheet normalization and instability breaks out all over the world from the Persian Gulf to the Korean peninsula.

“It Won’t Be Long Now” – David Stockman Warns “Amazon Is The New Tech Crash”

“It Won’t Be Long Now” – David Stockman Warns “Amazon Is The New Tech Crash”:

The Amazon business model is fatally flawed. It’s only a matter of the precise catalyst that will trigger the realization in the casino that this is another case of the proverbial naked emperor… I do not think AMZN is a freakish outlier. It’s actually the lens through which the entire stock market should be viewed because the whole enchilada is now in the grips of a pure mania.”

With all of that staring us in the face, the market is barely worth 1,600… There is a huge air pocket between the huge fantasy that prevails on Wall Street and the reality of the economic world.”

Former Reagan Administration Official Is Warning Of A Financial Collapse Some Time ‘Between August And November’

Former Reagan Administration Official Is Warning Of A Financial Collapse Some Time ‘Between August And November’:

If a former Reagan administration official is correct, we are likely to see the next major financial collapse by the end of 2017.  According to Wikipedia, David Stockman “is an author, former businessman and U.S. politician who served as a Republican U.S. Representative from the state of Michigan (1977–1981) and as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (1981–1985) under President Ronald Reagan.”  He has been frequently interviewed by mainstream news outlets such as CNBC, Bloomberg and PBS, and he is a highly respected voice in the financial community.  Like other analysts, Stockman believes that the U.S. economy is in dire shape, and he told Greg Hunter during a recent interview that he is convinced that the S&P 500 could soon crash “by 40% or even more”…

Stockman To Trump: It’s The Economy, Stupid

Stockman To Trump: It’s The Economy, Stupid:

Trump was elected because flyover America is hurting economically. The voters of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania are imperiled not because of some refugees, they’re imperiled because their jobs have all been disappearing for decades. The problem is far more the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, the bubbles they’re creating on Wall Street…

“Sell Everything Now” David Stockman Warns, America Faces “Total Disaster…Partisan Warfare”

FYI.

Reader squodgy:

“Middle class America just can’t see the wood for the trees. The last 65 years have been paradisic, but the end is coming and nobody sees it or worse, is even prepared to consider it.

All the pieces are in place, yet I’ve just been in contact with all my lot in the States & they’re either shocked about how the campaign against poor Hillary is going, or upset about the muck raking over Donald’s penchant for young girls. Is he really worse than Bill Clinton?

Nobody can grasp they are both from the Rothschild “end of America” stable.”

David Stockman: “China Is A Monumental Doomsday Machine” – “There As A Red Swan Rising” And Its Soon Going Global

China- Toast-To-Market-Manipulation

Here Comes The Red Swan And Other Reasons To Be Very Afraid:

The Red Chip casino took another one of its patented 6.5% belly flops this week. In fact, more than 1,300 stocks in Shanghai and Shenzhen fell by 10% – the maximum drop permitted by regulators in one day – implying that the real decline was far deeper.

This renewed carnage was the worst since, well, the last 6% drop way back on January 29, and It means that the cumulative meltdown from last June’s high is pushing 45%. And all this red chip mayhem did not come at an especially propitious moment for the regime, as the  Wall Street Journal explained:

Former Reagan Administration Official Warns That Financial Disaster Is Dead Ahead

Disaster

Former Reagan Administration Official Warns That Financial Disaster Is Dead Ahead:

Why won’t the American people listen to the warnings?  David Stockman was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1977 to 1981, and he served as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1985.  These days, he is running a website called “Contra Corner” which I highly recommend that you check out.  Stockman believes that a global “debt super-cycle” that has been building for decades is now bursting, and he is convinced that the consequences for the U.S. and for the rest of the planet will be absolutely catastrophic.  His findings are very consistent with what I have been writing about on The Economic Collapse Blog, and if Stockman is correct the times ahead of us are going to be exceedingly painful.

David Stockman Explains How To Fix The World (In 7 Words)

David Stockman Explains How To Fix The World (In 7 Words):

While we are used to David Stockman’s detailed and lengthy “nailing” of the real state of the world, the following brief clip of an interview with Fox Business, in which David explains how to ‘fix’ so many of our problems, can be summarized perfectly in just seven short words: “Replace The Fed with the free market.”

Can Kickers United … Why It’s Getting Downright Hazardous Out There

Can Kickers United—–Why It’s Getting Downright Hazardous Out There (Contra Corner, Aug 20, 2015):

It’s getting downright hazardous out there, and not just because the robo-machines were slamming the “sell” key today. The real danger comes from the loose assemblage of official institutions which claim to be running the world.

Wall Street Still Didn’t Get The Memo – China’s Done, Tops In!

Wall Street Still Didn’t Get The Memo—–China’s Done, Tops In! (David Stockamn’s Contra Cormner, July 28, 2015):

Bubblevision’s Scott Wapner nearly split a neck vessel today denouncing the US stock market sell-off. It was completely unwarranted, he thundered, because China don’t have nothin’ to do with anything.

The collapse of red capitalism in China is exporting gale force deflation to the global economy, meaning that the already evident rollover of world trade is just beginning its descent.

So S&P profits are not immune, not by a longshot. One of these days, perhaps soon, even Scott Wapner will get the memo.

Sundown In America

David Stockman Warns “It’s One Of The Scariest Moments In History” (ZeroHedge, March 1, 2015):

“The Fed is out of control,” exclaims David Stockman – perhaps best known for architecting Reagan’s economic turnaround known as ‘Morning in America’ – adding that “people don’t want to hear the reality and the truth that we’re facing.The following discussion, with Harry Dent, outlines their perspectives on the looming collapse of free market prosperity and the desctruction of American wealth as policymakers “take our economy in a direction that is dangerous, that is not sustainable, and is likely to fully undermine everything that’s been built up and created by the American people over decades and decades.” The Fed, Stockman concludes, “is a rogue institution,” and their actions have led us to “one of the scariest moments in our history… it’s a festering time-bomb and we’re not sure when it will explode.”

Europe’s Greek Showdown: The Sum Of All Statist Errors

Europe’s Greek Showdown: The Sum Of All Statist Errors (David Stockman’s Contra Corner, Feb 10, 2015):

The politicians of Europe are plunging into a form of ideological fratricide as they battle over Greece. And “fratricide” is precisely the right descriptor because in this battle there are no white hats or black hits—-just statists.

Accordingly, all the combatants—the German, Greek and other national politicians and the apparatchiks of Brussels and Frankfurt—- are fundamentally on the wrong path, albeit for different reasons. Yet by collectively indulging in the sum of all statist errors they may ultimately do a service. Namely, discredit and destroy the whole bailout state and central bank driven financialization model that threatens political democracy and capitalist prosperity in Europe——and the rest of the world, too.
