Global Economic Slowdown Continues To Go DEEP as China – U.S. Trade Battle WORST EVER!

The reality is that the economy is not what it was in 2014. It hasn’t recovered. It’s literally running on fumes of the QE rounds from post-Financial Crisis. Don’t worry, QE4 is here anyway. Let’s see how long this madness persists. Central bank balance sheets are rising and they won’t stop until they own everything. The insanity of this all is mind-boggling. To all those who care enough to watch these videos, understand you’re probably better prepared than 99% of the public.

The stock market had a tough week. But more importantly, the economy is still having a terrible time dealing with numerous factors that have piled up over the last while. Central banks have continued with QE in their accommodative approach to market instability. This has had a 100% failure rate over the last 100 years so it seems like they will give it another go anyway. Well, ok then…
