Bernanke Will Cause 2014 Stock Market Crash
There is a massive wealth destruction coming warns Hong Kong economist Marc Faber, who predicts the Super-Rich may lose up to 50 percent of their total wealth.
Somewhere down the line we will have a massive wealth destruction and that usually happens either through very high inflation, through social unrest, through war or a credit-market collapse and things get worse before they get better.
Most stock markets peaked in May 2011 and we will experience further weakness in the second half of 2012. Corporate profits will continue to disappoint, stock markets are oversold, the U.S. government-bond market is overbought, the U.S. dollar is overbought and gold is oversold near term. Analysts are very negative about the outlook longer term, especially the 2013-2014 Stock Market — the world is heading toward a major crisis.
U.S. Treasury’s are earning only 1.6%, and the cost of living is increasing by about 5% a year around the world — you are getting a negative real return.
The stock market collapse will be caused by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve’s continuous printing of new money — the bailout and money printing since the 2008 Wall Street Crash did not create any long-lasting wealth or create healthy growth, so investors must hedge longer-term bets.
The crash will be coming before Ben Bernanke leaves the Federal Reserve by early 2014.
The 2014 Stock Market Collapse will come on Bernanke’s watch — Bernanke’s second four-year term as Chairman of the Fed ends January 31st, 2014 and he will remain a board member until 2020.
The crash will be worse than in 2008 and Bernanke will be the cause of it. He will be clueless about the unintended consequences of his policies — like his predecessor Alan Greenspan, who ultimately had to admit to Congress “I really didn’t get it until very late.”
