Many people have written in asking what is the future of the markets. While in any election, it is presumed that the right to vote belongs only to the citizens who are alive, there has always been a second vote. That second vote is carried out by international capital. As I have explained many times, the DEFINITION of a bull market is one that rises in terms of ALL CURRENCIES!
The Japanese bubble of 1989 was the same as the 1929 bubble in the USA. You can see that the Nikkei rose in value more so in dollars than in yen because the yen was rising. This is what made the bubble. Everyone was there. When the market broke, capital fled. This is now what we must sort out.
It really does not matter who you voted for, if you cannot look at the markets objectively regardless of what you think, then you will lose. All that matters is how capital will respond. Already people are looking at boycotting not just Facebook and Twitter in mass, but all companies that say they will stop all donations to any republican like Coke.
QUESTION: Martin, Thanks for a great report on your private blog regarding population and cycles. These Great Reset people are killing the whole world! As an American who has lived in China since 1996, and has followed you since your incarceration, I am a huge believer in cycles and a student of Asian philosophy and martial arts.
I am however having problems reconciling your prediction of the center of Finance moving to China with what I am currently seeing. Please tell me what I am overlooking. Yes, I understand that the west is going to decline compared to its current state while China rises but there still needs to be certain structures in place.
To get the power to shift to a different country you need:
Stability (China has this)
Innovation; “the parent of prosperity” ( Money tends to follow innovation and this requires an environment where people are free to tinker and the government does not overly tax or try to assume too much control) It’s a bottom-up process that has not been part of China since the Song Dynasty. So if they are returning to the Innovative Song dynasty they need to rule like the Song did. China has been going away from this since Xi came to power. Locking up its entrepreneurs or stealing their innovations and giving them to their National Champions. If this idea of National Champions had happened in the US we would still be using rotary dialed phones and driving Edsels!
Rule of Law: i. Bankruptcy China asked AmCham and other chambers to help to rewrite its bankruptcy law to enable capital to be quickly redeployed. I have helped to take a few companies through bankruptcy and they still have a very long way to go before capital can be efficiently redeployed. ii. Contracts are enforced by the Chinese government on foreign companies but there is no practical way to enforce them on the government.
Markets i. Credit markets The markets are not open to the public ii. Capital Markets. For every sin, that we read about on Wall Street my contacts inform me that China is two to three times worse. Ponzi and Madoff are alive and well in China.
FX and convertibility of the Chinese Yuan (The capital account is currently not open to the capital markets)
What am I missing? Thanks in advance to you and your team for addressing this issue.
ANSWER: This is not a personal forecast. But keep in mind that the time frame is post-2032, which will actually be after 2037. So a lot can change between now and then and Xi Jinping will be 84 in 2037. The most critical factor is the rule of law. If that is not definitive, you cannot write any contract because there is no way to enforce it. The culture of copyright infringement was prevalent in Hong Kong where people would come visit offices with knock-off Rolex watches to Gucci bags. A lot needs to change, but the decline from the West is critical. What we are witnessing with this Great Reset is the desperate attempt to keep the governments in power which will only lead to fragmentation. So China simply will become #1 because the West will break apart.
The tyranny of this Triumvirate is to rule the world from the United Nations. China will not surrender to this absurd tyranny. But in the process, they will indeed destroy the very consumer-based economy that was so critical to world peace. Neither China nor Russia will surrender to this tyranny.
Moreover, China moving to a digital currency is also to bypass SWIFT. They will create their own financial network that in the years ahead will be an alternative to the West rather than subordinate to the West. China is well aware that the core of the US economy is the consumer market. They are intent on developing that and this is how they surpass the USA as it stupidly allows the Triumvirate to destroy the foundation of the Western economy. They will surpass the USA in e-commerce.
We have issued a special report on the Sovereign Debt Crisis and why we even have this Great Reset and where we are headed. This report provides also a historical review of previous sovereign debt defaults and what was the outcome. Some people try to claims that this is the precursor to revolution. That only reveals that they are engaging in sophistry for that is by no means the routine outcome. There have been serial defaults by many nations even in Europe such as Spain and Greece. The Roman Empire never had a national debt. So those claiming the debt default produces revolution is just not true. Historically, there were no pension funds and rarely were there social programs before the Great Depression. We have to set the record straight in order to truly understand what lies ahead.
Barack Obama a person that we elected twice has succeed in doing more damage to the Constitutional Republic we live in then has been done by all our enemies since the Revolutionary War! This president with the encouragement and active help of his party the Democrat party has systematically unraveled many if not all of the checks and balances that were so important in preventing the takeover of the federal government by a single faction of the country. Worse they were helped by the progressive faction of the Republican Party so we now find ourselves facing the combined weight of the Washington elitists in reducing us to economic slaves to them. I for one to not want that for my family nor your or any family in the country and even if we are not of the rich and famous we do outnumber them and it is our country not theirs.
We are Vulgarians who are traditionally defined as an unrefined person, especially ones with newly acquired power or wealth. But we are also Americans who by hard work and perseverance made this country and made it the best country ever created. So what if we were not Royalty, or Roads Scholars that didn’t batter since we were making something that had never been done before, a country where it was proved that the common man could rule himself better that those that thought they could by just wanted to have the power.
But we did find a champion to fight for us and that Champion was Donald J. Trump — is he perfect, no of course not, he is human just like the rest of us that carry the original sin. But he is a Christian and a strong leader and his heart is in the right place. Further he wants to fix the wrongs that have been done to all of us and to the Constitution. And he beat hillary fair and square mostly because she was an absolutely horrible candidate.
So four years ago we elected Trump to the shock of the entire world and in a very short period of time and despite both parties working against him by the end of 2019 the US economy was at full employment and every worker from middle manager’s to the lowest paid worked was earning more than ever before. The economy and the stock markets were breaking records continuously and Trump was even on the path to a middle east peace agreement. Trumps economy was so good that the deep state had to stop him because he was making what they claimed was impossible look super easy. Well, if you actually knew what you were doing maybe it was.
Trump is a real Captain America and has the full support of this former U.S. Army Captain and I worked as hard as I could to get him elected the second time! But despite all the work and energy the his supporters but a series of very strange events transpired in the wee hour on the morning and votes were changed from Trump to Biden ballots appeared out of thin air, and we ended up with more ballets than register voters. Despite all the corruption the deep states efforts it was still close because the real ballets had Trump wining in a landslide. Meaning the deep state had to go all out to the point it was obvious what they had done. Both parties participated in the fraud and although there is still some hope I don’t think anyone in the republican party has the cajones to stand up to the evil power trying to take over the country now.
Well there is always hope and what we need now is a new political party and it should be the MAGA party!
I f the MAGA party takes a 1/3 of the republican party and a 1/4 of the demarcate party it could end up being the most powerful political party ever formed in this country. We need to start this new party now this month January 2021 so we can dominate the House take a a good fraction of the Senate. We do not have a choice and baring an outright civil war this is the only peacefully way to get back out country.
Eric Clapton and Van Morrison have apparently joined the MAGA party — listen to STAND AND DELIVER and see what you think. I thing this should be the official MAGA theme song.
Therefore in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence which started us down this path we rededicate ourselves to the founding principles … “and for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
QUESTION: Are the central bankers really behind this digital currency? Will that end the dollar as the reserve currency?
Thank you for sharing your experience.
ANSWER: No the central bankers are NOT the instigators. It was Christine Lagarde who when at the IMF was threatening counties they would be blocked from Swift if they did not give up all those who had accounts in these tax havens. Germany went as far as to violate Swiss law and paid bribes to bankers to leak the records of the firms they worked for, which not even Hitler went that far. The entire digital currency idea was pushed by Christine Lagarde while at the IMF. But look closely, she is also a board of trustee member of Schwab’s World Economic Forum along with the new head of the IMF Kristalina Georgieva. It was Schwab who got Legarde put into the IMF and then he put her in the central bank. He then had Georgieva put into the IMF.
People who always point to the central bankers really do not know what is going on behind the curtain. Schwab is in league with Bill Gates and George Soros. Gates was pushing the digital currency at the United Nations. Melinda Gates was pushing the digital currency at the G20. It was Gates directing Modi to cancel the currency in India and he did so without ever telling the central bank in advance!
All this nonsense that we are moving to this digital currency system that will dethrone the dollar is just laughable. The three main elements that are the reason why the dollar is the reserve currency has been
the US never canceled the currency,
there are no capital-controls so anyone can issue bonds in dollars worldwide, and
the US has the world’s largest consumer economy which has funded the rise of China, Russia, Japan, and Germany along with all of Europe.
A digital currency does not override any of that. China knows what is unfolding and they are doing two main strategies that will impact the dollar long-term – not short-term.
They are building their own consumer economy to reduce reliance on the West
They are developing their digital currency to REPLACE the Swift system
This conspiracy against the central banks has been going on a long-term and to me, it just seems to be a diversion to keep people looking in the wrong direction. I have worked with more central banks around the world than probably any independent analyst/adviser. I do not talk about theory – it comes from experience!
A number of people have asked for a confirmation of the array analysis. Here you can see that the Turning Point was November, and then we have Jan/Feb. Not that we have back-to-back Directional Changes in November and December. Whenever the Directional Change aligns with the Turning Point, that is a very important combination indicating a significant target. Volatility will start to rise in December and scale into a Panic Cycle by next June.
Many people have asked WHAT is behind the fact that gold declined and Bitcoin rallied. It appears to be the same trend that we saw coming out of China. It is not that Bitcoin is better than gold, as many are asking, but it seems to be a means to move money across borders outside of simple bank wires. With the world in absolute chaos, forget hyperinflation. There is a far greater risk of the government canceling currencies and they want to cancel the debt. They have reached the end of the rope and what is left is about to break. This wild theory of hyperinflation is just not plausible. They cannot keep finding by borrowing. This is what the Great Reset is all about — altering the entire system because it is about to collapse anyway.
Global debt is exploding thanks to the deliberate COVID-19 manufactured crisis. It is approaching $280 trillion going into year-end. We should no longer call it even debt because at this point, they are just creating the money and the central banks are buying it. Moreover, there is ABSOLUTELY no intention whatsoever to pay back anything.
Here is Trudeau, PM of Canada, who completely misrepresents the debt, and refuses to answer the question simply saying interest rates are at historic lows. They have created this crisis in order to default on the debt using the Coronavirus scam as their excuse. I cannot stress enough, GET OUT OF ALL GOVERNMENT DEBT ON ALL LEVELS – PERIOD!
Meanwhile, Trudeau has committed Canada to the World Economic Forum’s Agenda 2030.
COMMENT: I admit I have been a gold bug and I bought into Bitcoin. I have been following Socrates since you began forecasting Bitcoin. I want to say that it has convinced me that these fundamental forecasts are just like fake news. When Socrates said gold would decline and then Bitcoin would rise, that made no sense but it was right. All they talk about is how hyperinflation will take place when the dollar loses its reserve status. Socrates is a real gift to us all. I think it is time to take it public to fight these Silicon Valley terrorists trying to change our future.
ANSWER: Socrates just calls the shots as they unfold without bias or predetermined philosophy. I think what you have noticed between gold and bitcoin is interesting. Buffett sold his bank shares and first moved to gold shares. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway bought a stake in Barrick Gold in the second quarter. The total stake in Barrick Gold was worth about $564 million. Then Buffett sold 9 million shares of ABX trimming the position 44% from Q2. Buffett also sold off Wells Fargo (WFC), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), PNC Financial Services, and M&T Bank, according to reporting by Yahoo Finance. The company also dropped its entire position in Costco.
Buffett, along with Bloomberg, is one of ABC News’ the “Super Rich Friends” and forget about his buying into gold and then selling it out. More importantly, he has been liquidating the bank stocks. This is what I have been warning that BigTech is moving in to replace banks. Don’t forget that Gates resigned from Berkshire to try to hide his influence from investment decisions behind Buffett. It has been Bill Gates calling for 10 more weeks of back in April lockdown! Bill Gates resigned both from Microsoft and Warren Buffet’s boards. It has been Bill Gates pushing to eliminate paper money and move digitally.
This is a coordinated effort with the World Economic Forum taking the visible lead. This is how all MANIPULATIONS take place. One person is upfront and gets all the press like Soros and the British pound. But there is a group with all the same positions. When the Long-Term Capital Management Crisis hit in 1998, it turned into a global liquidity crisis BECAUSE they all had the same position – Russian bonds. This is Klaus Schwab up front but all of BigTech is right behind him. Schwab has been cultivating heads of states to sell his Stakeholder Economics. He is an elitist and destroying the world economy to rebuild it from scratch in his mind is perfectly fine just hand out a guaranteed basic income as they are doing in the UK and in Canada to stay home.
