Political pundits and the folks on Wall Street would like to have you believe that the US economy is cooking. Stocks have been rising, sure, however there are key economic signals (they’d prefer you not hear about) that might be telling us another story altogether…
Of course, it’s a reality that the market is cyclical – it’s just a matter of time before the next crash occurs.
Here are 10 signs that a global economic collapse is already here, according to Washintonblog.com:
#1 HSBC, the largest bank in the western world, tells us that the global GDP expressed in U.S. dollars is down 3.4 percent thus far in 2015, and total global trade has fallen 8.4 percent.
#2 Chinese exports were down 3.7 percent in the month of September when compared last year, while Chinese imports were also down.
