Dow $80,000? Why the Heck Not? The Real Economy Doesn’t Matter Any More, Until It Does

With Dow Futures down almost 500 points before the market even opened, mainstream media were accusing Donald Trump of wrecking the economy from a few Tweets complaining that China was playing games and refusing to take trade talks seriously. The Dow seems to have shrugged it all off for the time being, leading us once again to ask, is this economy even real?

Dow $80,000? You Never Know

The market is closed for the day and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has eliminated most of its pre-open damage, closing down just a measly 60 points. All the worrying about the China trade deal looks like it was all for nought.

This is just another indicator that there are no real fundamentals driving the current stock market. Good news. Bad news. None of it matters any more, it would appear. While all the other economic data continues to indicate we are already in a recession, aside from the manipulated unemployment figures and bubble-inflated stock markets, everything goes on as normal, for now.

The Real Economy is Telling a Different Story, as Usual

Truck sales down over 50% year over year show that the economy is slowing down tremendously, as these trucks are used to move goods across the country for consumers as well as business-to-business tasks. Ray Dalio, billionaire hedge fund founder, along with his billionaire buddies, are all predicting massive social unrest as the gap between the haves and the have-nots widens even more.

Retail closures continue to surpass the entire number of last year’s closure, and we are only 4 months into the new year. Throw in the fact that residential home building has sunk every month this year due to a lack of buyers, and it will not surprise you that Americans have stopped buying just about anything that they don’t need to eat or put in their gas tanks.

More Americans Working Past Retirement

The median 401k is only about $60,000, which is way less than you’d need to retire comfortably, if at all. Only 31% of Americans have access to a pension fund, and most Americans don’t have $500 saved for an emergency expense.

These are the real numbers behind the US economy. It’s becoming clear that people need to prepare now for the next official recession, since the unofficial one is already here.

Americans Are Having Less Sex and Jewelry Stores Are Closing Down Across the Nation

Major Jewelry Stores Closing Down in Large Numbers in the US

 
Record numbers of Americans have stopped having sex as jewelry stores across the country close their doors. Add this to the fact that more peope in their 20’s still live at home with their parents, and you will see the true state of the economy right in front of your bedroom eyes.

In what should come as unexpected news, more retail outlets that were once dependent upon the now waning American middle class are shutting down as the consumer is simply tapped out. This comes on the heels of the worst retail quarter since “the Great Recession of 2008 – 2009”. But this time, the experts in the mainstream media won’t be able to blame this massive round of closures on a shift of consumer sentiment and habits to online shopping.

After all, how many women do you know would be impressed to learn you bought her engagement ring off Amazon.com?

In addition to this, and also not surprisingly, Americans polled in a recent survey are having less sex in the last 30 years. To me this is just one more indicator of the true state of the economy. Less money, less dates, less home buying by the younger generations, less opportunities, less marriages, less babies, and yes, less sex- all things to expect during a period of bleak economic activity, just as it was in the Great Depression.

Other Economic Factors That Point to an Upcoming Recession

 

*Unfunded liabilities mean 100+ trillion in national debt

Think the national debt is only $22 Trillion? A deeper look into the balance sheet shows that with unfunded liabilities such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, the average American owes a whopping $700,000 to be able to pay all this off.

Of course, we know this will never happen, and the current financial system marches on, but it won’t last forever, just as no world reserve currency in history has. Eventually, inflation will eat away at the purchasing power and global acceptability of the US dollar, and a reset will occur- hard or soft landing notwithstanding.

*Malls seeing less foot traffic since August of 2018

Foot traffic in malls peaked in August of 2018, and again, this has more to do with people not having disposable income than a shift in online sales. The slowdown is a global one, and we can expect more retail closures as 2019 rounds the halfway mark. So far we’ve had more retail closings in 2019 than the entirety of 2018, so it’s not looking good for those who think we can avoid a recession.

*US auto sales drop in Q1

With the average price of a car increasing $1,000 year-over-year since 2018, less consumers are opting to sign on for a loan to buy a new car. While this price increase represents a 3.1% change, we are told by the Federal Reserve that inflation is only 1.9%. But they wouldn’t lie to us now, would they?

*Trump calls for more quantitative easing and lower interest rates

It seems that even Trump knows the economy has run out of steam. A 2016 candidate once called the stock market a bubble, but President Trump applauded the bubble he inherited once taking office, and now he wants to keep air in the bubble.

*Washington D.C. experiences highest level of gentrification

If you were worried that the size of government was getting smaller, don’t worry, there’s no chance of that and the current gentrification leader in the nation is Washginton D.C. It would appear that $4.7 Trillion dollar annual US budget is not going to waste among government workers, as they move into new neighborhoods and buy up condos in the beltway.

*Gold will do very well in a recession, analysts predict

With all the market manipulation, the one shining star left that is not massively overhyped and overvalued remains precious metals like gold and silver. Sure, they aren’t sexy and they may not make you tons of money during supposed economic good times like we’re having now (yet people aren’t having sex? huh), but gold and silver are in a perfect position to rise during the next economic downturn and as the Fed prints money to infinity.

Don’t miss out on a golden opportunity to load up on precious metals with your portfolio while you still can before their price goes through the roof.
