A sweet financial liberation not only for Americans, but folks all over the world.
Celebration … Independent Day!
According to the conspiracy theorists,
Fed Says Farewell to Independence
Loss of the Fed’s independence will be as significant as the independence of U.S.. It will be the most significant event in 2018. Actually, the entire century.
Pointing to the correlation between the Fed’s independence and US politics, economy experts predict the Fed will be subjugated in 2018 as Washington fights for political survival in the wake of ballooning budget deficits as a result of the massive tax cuts and collapse of the financial markets. There is simply no other means by to contain expenditure, lest the nation slip into irrecoverable recession – Financial Armageddon. That’s it.
“The Fed will be attacked on two fronts: a weak economy and high interest rates (inflation), so the Fed will have nothing to counter the government’s monetary policy,” experts believe. In the end, the Fed will be blamed as the culprit for the key failures of the economy and the collapse of the US capital market.”
The same will happen in Japan, analysts say. “The Bank of Japan’s policy on controlling the yield curve depends on flexible international rates and low yields, and in 2018 it will be unproductive to gamble on them,” To the experts, as long as the inflation rate increases, the yields will rise, thus leading to the Yen’s weakness.
Year of PetroYuan
Analysts shed some insight on the situation with China as the world # 1 importer of oil. Amid strong demand, the Shanghai International Energy Exchange said it was preparing to start negotiations using Yuan-denominated futures contracts – the Chinese national currency, as opposed to the US Dollar.
For the time being, two standard contracts – BRENT and WTI, both in US dollars – are traded on the world market for oil futures contracts.
“In 2018, the Shanghai International Energy Exchange will start negotiations using Yuan futures contracts, and this step will lead to major geopolitical and financial changes,” said experts.
Fall of the S&P 500 Index
In 2017, world markets showed great volatility in the face of various geopolitical events. As a result, shares of companies that are part of the S&P 500 index will be devalued by about 25%.”There is a barrel of gunpowder on the verge of exploding, and the devaluation of the S&P 500 will occur just as it did in 1987,” experts believe.
Internal strife in the European Union
Conspiracy theorists suggests that diplomatic tensions in East and West Europe will be aggravated by problems with expatriates, migrant quotas and democratic values.
According to analysts, France, Germany and three other Benelux countries intend to expand integration, form a common treasury as well as a defense budget. In turn, leaders of Central and Eastern Europe will oppose to this initiative, fearing such a policy would lead to a decrease in their political influence within the European Union.
“Austria and the Visegrád Group (alliance between Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia) will do everything in their power to shift the direction of the European Union towards economic stimulation and protection from migrants. They have already formed the coalition of 13 European Union countries, including Italy and Slovenia, which may become the blocking minority in the European Council …. For the first time since 1951, Europe’s power center moved from Western Europe to Central and Eastern Europe. Institutional conflicts in the EU drastically influenced financial markets … At the end of 2017, the Euro was valued, but at the moment it is rapidly weakening and almost equaling the value of the Dollar, ” reads the analysis.
You know what, I think they mean Nationalism – Far-Right NeoNazism.
According to conspiracy theorists, Russia and China are determined to “kill” all the cryptocurrency in the world. “Bitcoin will continue to grow dramatically for most of 2018″, Analysts believe by 2018 Bitcoin’s value will rise to $ 60,000, as its market capitalization will be more than $ 1 trillion.
However, Russia and China will ultimately cause the virtual currency to decline with ruthless and relentless actions,” so they predicted.
“Russia and China are rapidly emerging from the game and they will ban all form of cryptocurrencies. Instead, Russia will become a key player influencing of the cryptocurrency protocols. It is not know if that mean CryptoRubble? In any case, the assassination of Bitcoin is basically to prevent capital outflow of the country, “says the prediction.
As a result, the value of Bitcoin in 2019 may fall to as low as $1000 USD.
That’s not that bad. I thought they gonna say it will be zero, zilch, nada.
Rebirth Of South Africa
In 2018, we will witness South Africa’s unexpected rebirth, which will lead to political and economic prosperity in the region, experts believe.
“In 2018, democratic processes will be launched throughout Central Africa …. New leaders will come to power with promises of free and fair elections in one year with the participation of international observers. Meanwhile, the business community, realizing the lack of potential for further economic growth in developed and developing nations, will continue to invest in the rapidly growing region”, the report points out.
In 2018, the volume of foreign direct investment to the Democratic Republic of Congo will reach $10 billion, predict analysts. Meanwhile, “South Africa demonstrates the world’s highest rates of monetary growth and is becoming the center of attraction for advanced economies in the region,” experts say.
Anyway, as the title implies, all are strictly speculative, conspiracies or otherwise.
Although some of the predictions are quite plausible. I for one do not see women dominating Fortune 500. Not that I am a sexist, I got a feeling this is not only unthinkable, it just doesn’t sound right to appoint women to lead the world for the sake of appointing women as leaders.
Else, I pray for the demise of the Fed. Which I strongly believe is the mother of all economic ills. It’s after all a form of perpetual slavery that goes directly against the principal of humanity.
