Why am I so sure? While other economists focus on
numbers alone, I look at the forces in nature that
cause those numbers to be what they are. All one
need to know is that the ingredients that cause
prosperity and peaceful living have been removed
from our system. Our free market system has been
dismantled. In politics, belligerence has replaced
democratic principles. as the driving force. Without these two items, the country has no prayer of

come when the stock market finally breaks. The driving force behind economic growth since

downtrend until a serious decline accelerates the process. Or, It can all happen on one day from
hell that comes out of nowhere. I am inclined to go with the second potential case.
stock market really is all there is to the economy. Once it breaks, everything in the world will
