It’s not just the writers at Zero Hedge who have been covering the lunacy and falsehood that is US GDP this but their article last week claimed that it took $4 in new debt to create just $1 in GDP for 2016.
Zero Hedge also relate another shocking aspect of the US economy: it is now at a level of 350% total credit/GDP, a level which has been relatively flat since it peaked at 380% just before the 2008 financial crash.
The global financial gangsters of the world seems hell bent on destroying everything of value to leave the littlemen/useless eaters of the world with nothing left to actually eat.
Notice in the above image how the banksters have their backsides to us as they milk mummy taxpayer.
The skill that the Federal Reserve and other financial gangster institutions around the world posses is keeping the public very much unaware of what they’re doing or even to make them care what they’re doing.
What they actually are doing is creating such a large debt bubble that it is no longer about trying to control how much air goes into the bubble.
It is more about changing the DNA and elasticity of the bubble in order for it to accommodate more air without bursting.
This is what investors need to know in order to continue to have confidence in the financial markets of the world and to be able to make investments in stocks – which is kinda the point and why The Fed and other central financial gangster banksters around the world engage in this type of financial engineering.
And so onward we go on the ever expanding debt binge to make all of us happy investors have confidence in a system that is essentially bankrupt.
How To Avoid The Crush As Central Banksters Slam The Value Of Money
How To Avoid The Crush As Central Banksters Slam The Value Of Money was the title of a post I wrote that showed how I am taking practical steps to prepare for the eventual debt bubble bursting.
I hope this is of value to you if you too are worried about the ever increasing squeeze on individuals and families in Western developed nations.
In Get Rid Of Money Worries For Good I alluded to how individuals basically need to do the complete opposite of what corporations want you to do which is to buy their products and services.
Want to know who is hoarding all the cash in the world?
Clearly it’s not central banks because they do not have any they just make it up out of thin air.
It is corporations.
Those organisations that bamboozle you with Instagram, Google and Facebook ads to make you transfer your wealth to them.
Sure we all need products and services but the burgeoning debt bubble means that the more wealth they have the less wealth you have.
The point is that if you are serious about cushioning yourself against the ticking financial time-bomb then you sure as hell better realise that (a) your after-tax cash is worth less every single month due to QE, inflation etc and (b) no-one gets bailed out except private banks.

How To Make The Simplest Investments To Make Money For You
In How I’m Achieving An 8.8% Annualised Return On A Set And Forget Investment I shared with you how scared I was to make an investment into a P2P (peer to peer) lender.
I’ve just checked into my funding circle account whilst writing this post and the annualised return is still at 8.8% with no loan defaults.
This is just one way to make simple investments for yourself and there are many different peer to peer lenders to choose from to suit your investment profile.
I’m also investing in a SIPP here in the UK (Self Invested Personal Pension).
SIPP’s give individuals the same tax breaks as a normal employers pension but they allow the individual investor to buy and sell stocks of their own choosing.
Under current UK legislation – which can change at any time – individuals are also able to invest in commercial property, bonds and ETF’s.
One reason that I chose to start my own retirement investments was because of the shambolic nature of pension deficits here in the UK as outlined in Private Sector Pension Deficit Widens In 2016.
How I’m Growing My Retirement Fund With Low-Cost Value Investing gives a brief overview of how I’m purchasing undervalued stocks without paying high commission charges as well as taking advantage – legally – of the tax system here in the UK.
The lunacy and falsehood of GDP is not just a US phenomenon it is happening all over the Western Developed world.
Entrenched old-world financial thinking is well past it’s sell by date and even The Federal Reserve is making things up as they go along as they try to keep the house of cards from falling down.
There simply has not been a precedent as to how to deal with the calamities of the housing bubble which triggered the financial crisis.
We can either sit here in hindsight and lament how president Clinton repealed laws that the allowed retail and investing banking to merge forces and cause the biggest upset to financial markets the world has ever seen.
Or we can be practical and take steps to unplug ourselves from the financial matrix swallow the red pill and cushion ourselves and our loved ones from future financial nuclear attack.
