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.

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.
