Allow me to stare into my crystal ball and take a little look into the long term future.
Please note: I've got no clue if it's true. I'm just repackaging the facts to tell a different story. This is completely for entertainment purposes.
Ok boys and girls, the tale goes like this:
Entering into 2016, the wheels of the international market were falling off. The U.S.A. had just experienced one of the biggest transfers of riches from governmental to private hands in history-- as Quantitative Easing removed dollars from future generations and directed it into stock markets.
In doing so, it made a huge stock market bubble, as corporations used low-cost debt to buy up their own shares, lining bank profits all along the way.
Banks were more than happy. Consumers, less so.
The restorative steps that had followed the economic wrongdoings of the GFC actually proved quite profitable for the criminals, as it happened.
At any rate, nobody trusted that the stock market was stable. A collapse was a question of when, not if.
At the same time, the EU was coming to pieces. An economic union that forced significantly different economies into bed with one another had been a headache for smaller economies. But for the some of the more substantial economies, like Germany, who were now effectively operating with a massively underrated currency exchange rate, and had unconfined access to extended buyer and labour markets, it had literally been amazing.
But it was all coming undone.
And worldwide, anger against global trade deals similar to the TPP (which allowed multinationals to sue government if they did anything that infringed on earnings) was growing. Both presidential nominees in the US were campaigning in opposition to it.
People believed that they were getting screwed. They were enraged and starting to wake-up and push back.
This was bad news for the Space-Lizards. They didn't want people waking up. They didn't want folks feeling they were entitled to anything like genuine freedom. They didn't want trade impediments to go up and for the money streams to stop.
Proving that every catastrophe is an opportunity, they prepared the case for MORE globalisation, not less.
Consequently for some time, they fanned the fires of a populist retaliation. They energised and invigorated their adversaries.
And it allowed them to have a few victories. To begin with, it gave them Brexit (in an unexpected, almost questionable, victory that nobody saw coming).
Britain, as a nation, was allowed to turn its back on the new world order. Through 2017, populist movements in Italy and France also continued to have notable wins.
Then there was Trump. In another bombshell win, Trump overpowered his rivals for the Republican nomination with devastating and surprising ease. With a very unusual free-kick from the FBI just 11 days out from the election, he took his campaign platform of people-focused trade deals and groping women right into the white house.
Everything was going to plan.
They were also manipulating the media to build a very particular tale because at the same time as the space-lizards were energising opposition.
That plot said that public figures like Trump were nothing more than simple-minded, racist cave men. It went to amazing lengths to specify that their worries were not legit objections with the dissemination of resources and wealth, but just a mentally dysfunctional aversion of brown people.
Hipsters licked it up like kittens on babycinos.
And with that, the whole show was allowed to collapse.
It began with one of the European banks. From there, one by one banks across Europe toppled. (Governments threw a shit can of money at them in the process, and their leaders were all sent to a lovely pasture in the Italian countryside).
The US stock exchange -- which had been uneasy all through 2016-- proceeded into a nose dive. Several large super funds went to the wall.
It became named The Great Vaporization.
We left you alone for 5 minutes and looked what happened. You pushed back on globalisation and look where it got you.
You believed you wanted more equality of opportunity, fairer trade rules, protection of the local environment and individual sovereignty. You thought you wanted multinationals to pay tax and to avoid of local politics ... Well, have you learnt anything now?
This is why you can't have nice things.
And don't blame us; we weren't driving when the entire show headed off the road. Blame Trump. Blame Brexit.
Here, listen to this morally righteous preacher.
And with that, resistance to unlimited globalisation became permanently associated with the stench of racism and economic disaster.
You simply just couldn't get it off your boots. You couldn't even talk about it without somebody comparing you to a Nazi.
Effective resistance to their plan for international supremacy was completely scuttled. And the space lizards laughed and laughed.
What do you think children? Good story?
As I said, I have no idea if it's true. But stranger things have happened. If this worries you perhapes you should consider investing in physical gold. The task of creating a Gold IRA Rollover has certainly become considerably simple. The IRS ruled in 2007 that IRAs can invest in bullion that falls under particular conditions, without any tax issues. Employing a Gold IRA Rollover is for that reason especially wise.
