30 Year Bear Market

20 May

Milton Berg is the founder and CEO of MB Advisers–a Wall Street financial institution.

Mr. Berg is predicting a “30 year bear market” in stocks and bonds.  T-h-i-r-t-y years.

I’m skeptical.  A 30-year bear market in stock and bond markets would almost certainly correspond to a 30-year Greater Depression.

I expect a global depression that will last somewhere between 5 and 10 years.  I could imagine a depression lasting 15 to 20 years.  But I find the prospect of 30 years of global economic depression to be extremely unlikely.

Still, Berg is no dummy and he’s certainly more knowledgeable than I am in such matters.  Therefore, a 30-year bear-market/depression is at least conceivable.

Whatever the duration, consensus is growing that we’re on the verge of a “Greater Depression”.

    If the [D]elites/PTB’s – Psychopaths That Bugger – decide that another world war gone nuclear is not “manageable”/financially beneficial then what is really being “projected”? A technocratic feudalism within which the market investor/trader term “bear market” is really no longer relevant?

    In the context of an economic depression that could last for 30 years, a “bear market” in stocks and bonds would be the least of our worries. After all, only a small percentage of Americans actually invest as individuals in the stock and bond markets. From the perspective of the average American’s direct participation, a “bear market” in stock and bonds is not very relevant.

    For the perspective of the average American’s indirect involvement in stocks and bonds (as through pensions, bank solvency, capital needs by businesses to expand productivity and hire more employees, bank credit, etc.) the fate of the stock and bond markets will be of critical importance. That importance may be concealed from the majority of Americans under the shroud of a “Greater Depression,” but it’ll be there, just the same.

    Anyone who owns a 401-K, a Roth IRA, Retirement Accounts or even Pensions (the remaining few… schools, churches, the military, etc.) – all of them have their money invested directly with investment banks and own: stocks, bonds, options/swaps & ETF’s (Mutual Fund Managers, Electronically Traded Funds – baskets or collections of stocks, bonds & options).

    Fast Food Employees, Eagle Auto Transmission, Restaurants & Retail People are (often) too poor to have these things.

    You are right, they don’t really invest as individuals – they let the central bankers do it for them. This *is* digital currency at it’s finest – it’s not “a fiat dollar” at all, it’s a stock – and for a lot of people – it’s their LIFE SAVINGS (other than property/real-estate).

    3 MONTH London Interbank Offererd Rate continues to rise! Up this week sharply. This leading indicator is signaling the onset of the “global’ bond market bust.
    Starbux indicator flashing red. Starbux stock heading lower, rollover underway. The starbux coffee drinkers may be going on strike. They are having difficulty coming up with the $10.00 and a tip for a cup of coffee and a stale cookie.
    The chipped population ain’t spending like they used to.
