Economic Crises - 2016 Debt to GDP was 253.5%
LT bond and equity prices relative to LT averages are near the highest they have been in modern history. The Cyclically adjusted price earnings ratio of the stock market is 30. It has only been higher twice in the 2000 dotcom bubble and before the 1929 crash. (The Economist 9/30/2017 (p.65) and 10/07/2017 (p.23))
The Fed plans to stop reinvesting principal redemptions on its LT bonds, by 10 B per month, beginning in October.
The Dow is approaching 23,000. There were 23,000 Levites in the second census before the Conquest of Canaan. Jews are an integral part of our financial systems and among those who manipulate our economy. Summers, Rubin, and their acolytes worked to deregulate before the great recession and to prevent reregulation after the great recession. I submit these men, and many of the plutocrats they work for, would prefer 23,000 as the next crisis point.
(Treasury's Summers, Treasury's Rubin, Fed's Greenspan, and SEC's Levitt are all Jews and all opposed CFTC Chairwoman Brooksley Born's 1999 attempt to regulate credit default swaps.
Fed Chairmen Greenspan, Bernanke, Yellen are all Jews and all oversaw regulatory forbearance in the run ups to the great recessions I and future II. 23,000 is a significant number.)
Crisis Point: Tuesday 10/31/2017 1:23 PM EST / or within the following two years.
