As we move into digital currency I see this as an extension of democracy. The people who are afraid is when people will no longer accept dollars or any other currency. With 400 billion market cap I think it behooves citizens of the world have some knowledge on how these blockchains work. It's not rocket science. Right now so much of it is "dumb money" and people who invest everything in one area will fail, but bitcoin is not alone anymore. I believe that the big investment companies have already taken a position or working to undermine faith in it.

The housing market in Sealand will go through the roof, Don. Up until the moment the sea comes to collect the houses, that is.

 

So add that all to your prediction list. It's December, so it's List time. Making lists is fun. You look back at 2017. But another list is to look forward. And I've added to your list this week:

 

** Trump WILL attack NK in 2018, but only AFTER the Olympics, and then the Chinese come in and take all the rest of the nukes making Queenbee's story about MIC's supremacy irrelevant for all days, thus America is small again.

** The housing market in Sealand will boom in 2018. Then they have quite some time to live in the houses but in the end, the sea comes to collect the houses and the fish will get the houses on the cheap.

Much fun coming up apparantly: 3 days away from the beginning of the Year End Special... the editing team put together a fantastic series of charts from a 136 slide deck...

My 401k is up so that's good. Are you suggesting it's just a printing press bubble?

I don't think anyone should worry about your 401k until you need to take it out. I believe the markets always have corrections. I am concerned how central banks can rollover debt like it's a magic trick. Where will the 1.5 Trillion come from? They will simply print it forward out of the future. That doesn't mean they will actually print the money. Just add on more zero to the end of the government debt. Deflation is the death of money. I think most businesses are flush with cash. Why did we have to cut capital gains again?

 

Think Apple will start building phone and cars in the US? What we will see in the future is an aging population supported by a shrinking population. After the Boomers are gone in 40-50 years things will normalize, but who will pay the debt we borrowed from the future?

 

In all fairness where else can Americans put their money? The crash of 2008 has been forgotten. Happy Days are here again. Right now all most can do is put their retirement into the hands of the market and hope for the best. The stock market is a casino. The banks don't want anyone to save. They need you to borrow. That is how money in created.

 

The velocity of money is vital as the blood in our veins.

I don't think there is any question that the stock market is buoyed artificially because there is simply no other alternative for yield. I fear this is the quiet before the storm and I hope I am wrong. These things go in cycles and we are due. Markets need a correction or cooling off every now and then. The problem is when the music stops who is left without a chair?

Yes, you have to put your money somewhere.  There are alternatives. You can buy real-estate, gold, bitcoin, antiques....anything really.  But most are not savvy investors so will sock it into their 401k mutual funds and hope for the best.  It's not necessarily bad. Companies need investment capital and they still have to produce.

Lol.  401k is a type of retirement account in the US.

There's no problem here. Carry on your business. It's not that it's like the year 2018 I predicted things to start happening or anything :blink: B)

You beat me to it, gkaros. This is a gamechanger indeed. The US no longer A status (let alone tripple A) but B.

 

Yesterday as well was announced the Germans have adopted the Yuan into their banksaldi. The dollar absolete in 2018 already??? Trump is making America small again very fast.

Indeed! If you read back up this thread my prediction has been for years this will end in 2018-2020. That was before Trump... I expect him to be the katalysator (Greek word I take it ;) ??) now. So we might see big steps in 2018... and, well, we are already seeing them... you point it out too :ph34r: :lol:

The government stopped and no one cared. This is the crumbling of the empire as it rots from the head down. The only people who use or care about cash are the elderly who tech left behind and gangsters to hide their booty.

 

Make sure your popcorn machine is in good working order and pizza delivery is on speed dial. The end is when Social Security defaults. It will kill the old and poor, but billionaires will become millionaires overnight. I think if Trump could do it he would default on the debt just like he has done with his own debts.

 

And why did his supporters ever think this time will be different? A failure whose lifestyle is sustained by his debtors and this time it only took him a year. Fact is he is a creep who deserves no respect from me. The under 50 crowd will be supporting their parents.

That's rich, QB.  Trump didn't put us here and he's trying hard to fix it.  The fact is that defaulting may very well be the way we have to go.  Do you really think we're ever going to repay $20T?  If we do it won't be in the lifetimes of anyone on this board today.

 

The only way we turn it around is to grow and cut.  We're getting growth.  Now it's time for the other.  Be part of the solution.  Get behind the cuts.  Do you think Schumer cares about righting our finances?  You think he even cares about the Dreamers?  He doesn't care about anything but stopping Trump.  It's all politics right now.
 
Your hate blinds you.

Hmmm, Darth, maybe it's right to get behind this...

You and I have always said the crisis is coming, so why not make the best of it?

I think it's inevitable the way Trump is running things now, so he might as well go all the way now. I'm sure he'll get Rand Paul's support, who was one of the two Republicans not endorsing the new debt ceiling. Better call SPaul ;)... he cares for sure...

PS
Nothing about The Memo, Darth? I thought the Clintons would have finally be jailed by now, it's been a year office already!
