THE NEW BLACK TUESDAY: CAN WE ANTICIPATE THE NEXT MAJOR COLLAPSE

Numbers on Monitor

“When will it happen again?”


the fall to come

I told someone I work with, that the next major collapse could be coming soon. You know what, let me not exaggerate, I said that I feel something is coming in 2020 that is economically stressful. So I have been making the appropriate adjustments to try to make myself ready for the hit. Now, I am not someone who follows the market ritually, but you know how you get that feeling? It’s something you can’t describe, but you know something is about to happen. Now, that could be just paranoia, but for me, I would rather earn a little more money and make myself ready than to not be ready and get hit. But where is this feeling coming from because some people feel hopeful?

my workplace in disarray

I have been noticing changes in my workplace lately, but I have not said much to people. Just that I have this feeling about something to come. And that is because I have seen some things that have made me question if I will have a place of employment by the end of next year. So maybe the economy is going to be fine, maybe it’s me who needs to worry a little bit more. From the hours of working to the customer base coming into the store, I have been seeing a downturn. And my aim is at when it hits I can easily matriculate out into something else and earn a living. So what is really going on in the country that I feel this way?

the leadership in limbo

With President Trump facing impeachment charges, this could leave the country in an economic mess. Now, do I think he will be impeached, no, but then again, I never thought he would win either. But look at the country, we are doing better than years prior and the job market is up right now. So what could be the problem to come in 2020? And that is that if he is forced to step down from his post, it could mean that the economy is going to take a hit because now for the time being the leadership of a nation is impacted. Only if I could tell the future I would be able to feel a little more at ease. But for the time being I’ll still keep myself a little cautious. I would rather be too sure than not sure at all.

REAL JOBS OR JUST A JOB: WHAT WAS REALLY CREATED

Man Standing in Front of Bowl and Looking Towards Left

“What did the government really do?”


them and their creations

Every president that comes into the White House we hear the same speech about job creation. But what I really want to know is, what types of jobs for how many hours and at what pay. We hear job creation and automatically jump for joy. But just listen to how fast that disregard the question when you ask. They really are not people who create anything in America. Anytime you depend on the government to create a job it is usually in the context of providing you with the absolute basic need for what they can afford. So the thing they give you is less than adequate most of the time. So I am always a skeptic when they create something.

its the sector not them

The businesses themselves create the jobs in America, but they always have to await the government’s decisions. Because if the government makes a decision not in the best interest of the business the business can not create anything. So now the people become stuck in this tug-a-war game between the system and the business. what will be the government decision so that the organization can sit down and decide what will come of the company. And if you are an employee or someone looking for a job you could be scared each and every time a new leader takes office in the White House. Because your life is now effected, not really from the company, but their business hinges on the government decision making.

once they step back

When the government steps back then the business is able to operate a little better. Because then the globe is able to engage. But the problem with that is that there are certain places the government does not want business to operate. Only if the operation is in the best interest as what they describe as in the country’s interest. But what does that really mean because isn’t it that if the country is working the country is working? Or would it be better for the government should regulate to the point where now its own people are getting hurt. Because this is what is happening. So I guess good is good if it’s good for me is not always good.

Numbers on Monitor

“Where is the market going?”


econ 101

For the next two months you are going to see me writing about the economics of the country. We are coming up on the busiest shopping time of the year. And this is where America makes so much of its money. But we are also looking over the entire year to see how the country has done thus far. It gives us time to reflect and also forecast for the upcoming year of 2020. So hopefully we are able to come to an understanding of the year to come after these next two months. So sit back and enjoy. Read, like, follow, and share with the world.

MAKING ILLEGAL LEGAL: BECOMING LAX ON SOME LAWS COULD BOOST ECONOMY

close -up, court, courthouse

“What used to be illegal is now legal.”


legalities

What at one point in time used to be illegal is now becoming legal. One of those things is the legalization of Marijuana in small quantities. What before could have gotten you sent to federal prison has become a lot more lax. And to add to it, there is now a market to capitalize off of the sale of Marijuana to dispensaries.

new legalities

Are there any new industries that may emerge which will open up for mass consumption which used to be illegal? And know what in particular which is still the oldest profession; prostitution. But the idea of this becoming legal in America is such a far stretch, that it’s not even worth the conversation. Now, in other countries there is a legalization, but not America. So, there goes that idea of a new industry.

why the wait

There are multiple reasons as to why the government has waited for some period of time to legalize what has been illegal. One of the reasons is that not enough time goes by where a generation sees the illegal product or service as negative. In the past years, if you had the legalizing Marijuana debate, both sides took issue.

Another reason for the wait, is what do you doo with all the people sitting in prisons for the crime. There are countless Marijuana offenders who are doing hard time in prison. Do we let them go? Because then again, the majority of them are non-violent federal offenders.

economics

Remember prohibition; the illegal sale and use of alcohol. It seems a world away from the past where drinking beer was a fine. Now, we have beer commercials during sporting events. Enough time has went by to make it ok for use and sale. But also because the amount of revenues collected by companies as well as government for the sale of alcoholic beverages. The same will be for a narcotic like Marijuana. A multi-billion dollar industry that in the next 25 – 30 years will be a blip on the radar of conversation.

THE BIG HURT: WHEN WILL THE NEXT ECONOMIC COLLAPSE TAKE PLACE

black-and-white, business, chart

“The fall of all falls.”


the fall

Since the Great Depression which was the fall of 1929, the United States has had numerous economic falls. But nothing has come close to rivaling the Great Depression. I’m talking about an economic downturn which sent people into a life of crime to survive. A choice that people thought we never had to make in life to live. You even had a lot of people committing suicide. Doing everything from shooting themselves to jumping from windows. Now, my question is, when will the next big one take place? We came really close back in 2008/2009.

fears

The panic, the fear, the money supply running out, the bank runs. All of the things that people are scared could happen when the big collapse happens. But could America sustain another major fall? Who knows, the next one could be the one the end our civilization. Don’t think that America can last forever. We have had far greater empires come and go, who were much stronger, and lasted longer. Yet no one wants to think about that potentially happening. And if this could happen, what if anything could stop it form happening?

stay ahead of the curb

America has always been the leaders of technological innovation. But is that starting to go away. Because is still strong because the “idea” that we are great exist. And the reason I say idea, is because through so much political and social strife in recent years, we are falling behind other nations. Nations that we never would have thought would become rivals. We have to learn to be innovative and maybe even inventive as we are social and political. If not, you will start to see happen what has happened to great empires in the past, they fall; fall from the strife within.

MASS MEDIA HYSTERIA: HOW CONSTRUCTED STORIES EFFECT A NATION’S GROWTH

Man Reading a Newspaper

“If it’s news, must be important.”


generation information

Remember when breaking news used to be breaking? Now, it seems like anything is breaking news on the television screen. It was done in the past to signify a tragic event, not the news uses it for bringing more eyes on their particular story or agenda. And the problem is that we are now becoming desensitized to the word breaking. But how is this all effecting our economy in America? Is there something to the nation’s economy and the way the news presents the information in various mediums?

stocks go up and then they go down

I’m not someone who is well traversed in the stock market. But whenever the mass media talks about the market, you start to see a shift in confidence. It’s because the average Joe really doesn’t know much about the market. So when they hear commentators discussing the market, it makes them either nervous or optimistic. Because these the trusted people who have worked in the space of finance. So when the commentator starts to question the market, then you will notice, if this person is trusted, a slight show of loyalty to what they are saying. But the commentators don’t have anywhere as much influence as the market numbers in the newspapers or websites.

ratings can’t be the driver

Whenever you see the media, there is always a left or right agenda. Yet when you are presenting the market numbers, having a left or right agenda can hurt directly even more. Because playing with the market’s numbers can effect how people invest, and in turn the jobs in our market. So when presenting information about the market, show the numbers as a reflection of what is because a lot of people have investments riding on those numbers. Views on political parties and social issues are more ambiguous than the numbers that coincide with the market.

DIGITAL DOLLARS: WHO WILL LAST OVER THE LONG HAUL

apps, blur, button

Whose going to sink or swim?”


bubble or not

In an age where so much is dominated by the market, what will be the company or companies that last? But also, what will be the companies that don’t last? Always remember that nothing last forever. And it all comes to an end at some point in time. So who will be the first to bite the dust? Because something will happen a major company; maybe not this year or next year, but it will.

devastation

There was social communication prior to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snap Chat, there will be after. But can you imagine the downsides of a known tech firm. But the word tech and social media are not just the platforms we known. Yet still, you can’t but feel for the the employees who are forced to find new jobs because of the collapse.Then again, I don’t see happening anytime soon.

acquisitions

Companies in today’s society are known to be bought out so they are not having an worry of dissolving to company. Which is yet another reason a lot of companies don’t break down that easily. Companies that do dissolve are generally companies that are much smaller. The ones that are still popular enough to survive are bought by bigger more popular companies. But knowing when to pull out your investment in one of these companies is important so you don’t lose money.
