An update on ‘The End of America’

by Porter Stansberry

Since 2009, total global debt has increased by $57 trillion, according to consulting firm McKinsey. That’s about the same amount of debt as America owed, in total, back in 2009.

Said another way, in a little more than six years, the world has added a new pile of debt as big as the one that blew up the American economy.


Over the next decade, the biggest threat to your wealth won’t be the risk of losing your savings to a market crash. The biggest threat (by far) is the risk of losing your wealth to our government via confiscation or devaluation… or both.


My fear is that the stock market disappears. My fear is that the government defaults. My fear is that no bank will survive.


What should you do? The most important thing is to learn to avoid the “normalcy bias.” As these financial pressures build, keep your eye out for things that just don’t look right.

Is The United States Beginning To Collapse?

By Michael Snyder

According to Covenant Eyes, an internet search group, 1 out of 5 mobile searches on the internet involves pornography.

Illegal drugs continue to be both manufactured and transported into the U.S. with no apparent way of halting or stopping the flow.

In the US alone, more than 15 million people abuse prescription drugs, more than the combined number of people who reportedly abuse cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants and heroin.


Suicide rate in this country increased by a whopping 24 percent from 1999 to 2014.


According to the Schaeffer Institute, 70 percent of pastors constantly fight depression, and 71 percent are burned out.

Meanwhile, 72 percent of pastors say they only study the Bible when they are preparing for sermons; 80 percent believe pastoral ministry has negatively affected their families; and 70 percent say they don’t have a close friend.

The Schaeffer Institute also reports that 80 percent of seminary and Bible school graduates will leave the ministry within five years.


According to research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 59 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least one prescription drug at this point, and 15 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least five prescription drugs.

The Unemployment Crisis Is Here

By Michael Snyder

In the first four months of 2016, employers have announced a total of 250,061 planned job cuts, up 24% from the 201,796 job cuts tracked during the same period a year ago.

This represents the highest January-April total since 2009, when the opening four months of the year saw 695,100 job cuts in the aftermath of the biggest financial crisis in modern history.


Computer firms announced 16,923 job cuts during the month; the highest total among all industries. That total includes 12,000 from chipmaker Intel, which is shifting away from the traditional desktop and laptop market and toward the mobile market.

To date, computer firms have announced 33,925 job cuts,up 262 percent from a year ago, when job cuts in the sector totaled just 9,368 through the first four months of the year.

Here are the cracks that are starting to show in the U.S. economy

by Justin Brill

From Marc Faber:-

My sense is that the economy is, in some sectors, hardly growing. The retail-sales figures are very suspicious and the employment figures are also suspicious. The difficulty is, can you trust the published data, whether that is in the U.S., in Europe, or in China? Of course I don’t.


Staffing firms say hiring of temporary workers – one of the biggest drivers of job growth over the past several years – has suddenly slowed.

Why is this important? Because temps tend to be a strong leading indicator of the health of the broad economy… They’re often the first employees companies add when the economy strengthens, and the first that companies let go when it starts to weaken.

The Wall Street Journal reports we saw a similar slowdown in temp hiring before each of the past two recessions.


After snapping up trillions of dollars of their own stock in a five-year shopping binge that dwarfed every other buyer, U.S. companies from Apple to IBM just put on the brakes.

Announced repurchases dropped 38% to $244 billion in the last four months, the biggest decline since 2009, data compiled by Birinyi Associates and Bloomberg show.

The number of companies cutting dividends has also soared to the highest levels since the financial crisis.
