World Central Banks Collude to Cut Interest Rates
With even the official jobs numbers failing to meet estimates and expectations, the Federal Reserve headed by Jerome Powell has promised to benevolently lower interest rates to ensure the economy which runs largely on debt and borrowed money, can continue unabated.
Before anyone thinks this is some type of reprieve from the economically inevitable, people should take a look at the fact that the price of gold has risen about the same % as the Dow Jones since the Fed Reserve made its dovish statements.
In fact, there’s many reasons to think that many of the world central banks coming together at the same time and lower interest rates is not a sign of good things to come, but the official end of the road for financial markets artificially propped up and inflated by easy money, money printing, and market interventions.
Is the USA the New Japan?
Japan’s experiments with low interest rates has succeeded in delivering GDP growth at around 0 – 1% per year since the early 90’s. Indeed, the constant lowering of interest rates since the early 60’s ultimately failed when Japan disappointed the world which had previously expected it to become the prime contender with the USA.
With so many of current modern countries having interest rates already below the official rate of global inflation already, it’s becoming readily apparent that this is just one more stall tactic until the entire global economic and monetary system resets.
Keeping this in mind, savers, retirees, 401k and IRA holders will all want to position themselves accordingly while the times are still “good”, because one there’s blood in the water, the sharks will swarm and many accounts won’t survive the feeding frenzy.
This is why you prepare today for what is guaranteed to come. There has never been a world reserve currency that has lasted forever, and with so many real economic indicators showing a downturn in the economy- record levels of personal, corporate, and government debt; low trading volume, low money velocity through the real economy, lack of auto purchases, record auto loan defaults, lower manufacturing orders, lower job creation numbers, reduced savings for the middle class- it’s only a matter of time before the bottom falls out from under the financial system.
That’s why it’s best to do something about your retirement and investments now.
