Virtually Everyone Agrees That Current Stock Market Valuations Are Not Sustainable And That A Great Crash Is Coming

Stock Market Collapse Toilet Paper - Public DomainCurrent stock market valuations are not sustainable.  If there is one thing that I want you to remember from this article, it is that cold, hard fact.  In 1929, 2000 and 2008, stock prices soared to absolutely absurd levels just before horrible stock market crashes.  What goes up must eventually come down, and the stock market bubble of today will be no exception.  In fact, virtually everyone in the financial community acknowledges that stock prices are irrationally high right now.  Some are suggesting that there is still time to jump in and make money before the crash comes, while others are recommending a much more cautious approach.  But what almost everyone agrees on is the fact that stocks cannot go up like this forever.

Cash = Bad

MIA has written quite a bit in recent years about the accelerating global war against cash. This war, orchestrated by the global socialists who are hell-bent on establishing a global/one-world government, is about totally controlling people, their finances, their movements – indeed every aspect of their lives. If they can monitor and control all of your spending – they can completely control you, and if you do not completely cooperate with the Big Brother system, or if you in any way resist their tyranny (i.e., if you become “a person of interest”), they can pull the electronic plug on your finances – and you cannot buy, sell, travel, or function.

The cashless society is far advanced in socialist countries like Sweden, and is advancing rapidly across Europe, in America, and in most Western countries. In most parts of the world, you can no longer buy an airplane ticket with cash. Many hotels no longer accept cash. Cash withdrawals from banks are now being restricted in many parts of the world. Very shortly, buying firearms or ammunition with cash will be prohibited. People are being searched for cash and even arrested at airports, on highways in America, and in various places in the US and around the world – using the excuse that they are “suspected money launderers, drug dealers, terrorists, or tax cheats” – and the cash is confiscated by police.
