John Rubino: “Extreme” Times Right Now, Worse than 1970s, Dollar Collapse is Next

ITM Trading, Released on 5/4/24

John Rubino, former Wall Street financial analyst, author, and founder of, sounds a stark warning: ‘People who are hurt by the inevitable results of this process are the ones who trust the government.’ In his sobering analysis, he outlines a bleak future for the U.S. economy, where mounting debt and escalating interest costs cripple the government’s ability to provide for its citizens. The repercussions? A widespread suffering for those dependent on government aid. Rubino points to Japan’s struggle with a plummeting yen and soaring interest rates as a cautionary tale of the perils of unchecked debt. In the face of such financial uncertainty, he urges individuals to safeguard their assets by investing in gold and silver.
