Ben knows this and has so much more information than we do. Ben has one last BIG card to play if he wishes to and that is the QE of all QEs. It most likely will not work and he knows that but it can give us an extension of our rendezvous with destiny. Ben will not decide destiny....he will only arrange our meeting. Maybe Ben is oblivious or ignorant of what he is doing, but I don't buy that analysis of him. I think he knows the outcome and he knows how this plays out. Ben cannot fix the fiscal and structural deficits built by horrific monetary and political policy. He cannot fix our demographics. He can no longer shield us from dwindling resources. These issues will have to be faced eventually. We will most likely have to be reintroduced to these market variables out of necessity rather than choice. Pay attention to what I tell you now. NO ONE can tell you THE answer to how this will play out. Just take some simple precautions. AFTER you have taken the steps that you feel are adequate over the next few months then you can "rest". At least for awhile. If the cycles are right the convulsions of years of evil will begin and hopefully we will meet on the other side saying "that wasn't so bad".....at least that's my plan.
