  • Head of the Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente gives central bank monetary operations a new moniker, Ponzi-nomics.
  • Through the issuance of easy credit, low interest rate bonds encourage corporate share buybacks, a major underpinning of the US stock market advance.
  • The process is essentially a shell game, where the dealer wins at the expense of investors.
  • 1 in 5 American’s hold less than $100 in cash savings; 1 in 3 American’s has less than $500 in savings for emergencies, over 100 million people.
  • A key component stems from the loss of 500,000 solid paying manufacturing jobs per year for over a decade, more than half a million careers vanished.
  • Although the recent Brexit event startled the global markets, leading to safe haven buying, the potential for Italy to exit the EU might overwhelm the markets. The biggest risk to the economic revival remains the threat of higher rates – CBs cannot hold back the inevitable trend of higher rates.
