America's Financial Doomsday
An historic, world-changing event is about to crush the U.S. economy and stock market.
It will destroy the income, savings, investments and retirements of millions of Americans.
It will plunge vast numbers of families into the nightmare of poverty ... hunger ... and homelessness.
Only a minority of investors will survive intact. And some will actually build their wealth in the process.
I’m going to reveal some very disturbing facts about America’s economic decline and how it’s now threatening your financial security.
These facts are so shocking, that I’ve decided to present them to you in a special format that is absolutely clear and fully documented, starting right now ...
I’m Martin Weiss, founder of Weiss Research.
You may know my company because every day, more than 500,000 people get our financial publications.
And hundreds of thousands more have used our Weiss Ratings on banks, insurance companies and stocks to help make prudent financial decisions.
You may also know us because we’ve been on TV and in the newspapers a lot lately:
We were the first rating agency in the world to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing BUT the truth about the financial mess the United States government has gotten itself into.
Unlike Moody’s, Fitch and even S&P which still give the U.S. a stellar rating despite its financial troubles, we gave Uncle Sam a credit rating that places him where he really belongs — just above nations that are already on the brink of bankruptcy.
And boy, did the media ever have a field day with that story!
The Wall Street Journal and Barron’s reported that the Weiss Rating on Uncle Sam is a mere two notches above “junk” — the category assigned to near-bankrupt nations.
Fortune expressed shock that we ranked America’s finances below several smaller countries.
And Forbes reported that Weiss beat Standard & Poor’s in downgrading the U.S.
You may also know me because, in the 40 years since I founded this company, so many of our prior warnings made the news.
Months in advance, we warned about the S&L crisis of the 1980s, the giant insurance company failures of the 1990s, plus the great “Tech Wreck” of the early 2000s.
More recently, ours was the only firm in the world to issue low ratings — and specifically name — nearly every major company that collapsed.
We gave advance warnings about the failure of Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, General Motors, Fannie Mae, Wachovia, Citigroup, Bank of America, and many others.
These kinds of on-target warnings prompted Worth magazine to say, “Weiss’s record is so good compared with that of his competitors ... consumers need look no further.”
And the New York Times to say, “Weiss was the first to see the dangers and say so unambiguously.”
Barron’s wrote, “Weiss is the leader in identifying vulnerable companies.”
And NEWSMAX said, “Weiss’s prediction of the current economic crisis is uncanny.”
More importantly, our forecasts allowed investors to avoid big losses and even make money as the crisis unfolded. On average, the 15 investments we gave the highest ratings to rose 467% DESPITE the worst debt crises in recent years. And we also recommended investments that are designed to make you money BECAUSE of the crisis.
I expect they’ll do even better in the months ahead. Because now, a far more dangerous phase of this crisis is beginning. Barring a miracle in Washington ...
An historic, world-changing event is about to permanently alter your life.
This doomsday event will plunge vast numbers of families into the nightmare of poverty, homelessness and hunger. In the worst case scenario, you will see soaring crime, the confiscation of property, the suspension of civil rights, and even martial law enforcement by the U.S. military ...
I’m well aware that these forecasts will be controversial even among my closest friends. But today, I’ll present powerful evidence of their accuracy.
I’ll describe exactly what to expect as America’s great debt crisis continues to unfold — how it’s likely to impact you, your family and your finances. I’ll NAME the giant banks that are most vulnerable.
And, I’ll give you my strategies for protecting and improving your finances as this crisis unfolds.
In a moment, I’ll tell you about the doomsday event that will trigger America’s decline and change our lives forever. But first, let me tell you about how this has actually happened before!
I personally lived through the kind of disaster the U.S. is facing now.
I went to high school in a large foreign country, one of the largest in the world. And when their leaders made the same mistakes Washington is making now, all hell broke loose.
First, the cost of living exploded. Suddenly, everything we needed to buy cost ten times more. In some cases, the crisis became deadly: Prices rose so quickly that construction companies began using lower-quality concrete.
Developers added more floors to buildings in an attempt to recoup rapidly rising costs.
So when one of these skyscrapers collapsed, a teacher who lived next door found his home crushed under the rubble, his wife still inside.
Later, in sheer desperation, the government begged the people to donate their gold jewelry and coins to help save the economy.
One woman even pulled the wedding ring off her finger to give it to the government. Local officials shook her hand but corrupt politicians pocketed the gold.
Later, the government got so desperate; it summarily froze everyone’s bank accounts. It confiscated their money and replaced it with a new, far-less valuable currency. And that was only the beginning of the people’s suffering.
In the end, they were doomed to decades of intense financial pain, shame and lost personal liberties. I can assure you these stories are true — because I witnessed them personally:
The teacher who nearly lost his wife when the skyscraper collapsed was my teacher.
The patriotic woman who donated her gold wedding band was my best friend’s mother.
These things happened when I was a young man living in the third largest country in the capitalist world at that time — Brazil.
But my story is definitely NOT unique ...
More recently, this kind of crisis has also struck a very powerful European nation.
After its leaders made the same mistake ours are making now, the country’s bonds collapsed in value, interest rates exploded to over 200%. In just six months, its stock market plunged 75%.
The common people suffered tremendously: A staggering 60% of the workforce was paid only partially and received their paychecks months after they were due.
As the economy collapsed, millions of average citizens fell victim to crime and corruption. The police demanded bribes for traffic violations — both real and imagined.
Organized crime syndicates divvied up the country into their own private fiefdoms, profiting from protection rackets, prostitution, smuggling, narcotics-peddling and even murder for hire.
The government itself admitted that the criminals owned or controlled about half of the country’s private businesses.
A friend of mine said:
“Many banks, including some of the largest in the country, shut down. They closed their doors forever. Our savings were wiped out.
“All people could do about it was to go to their banks and hammer on locked doors.
“Other people demonstrated on the streets. They carried their devalued money in miniature coffins and marched past our central bank.”
All this happened in the 1990s — in Russia, formerly one of the most powerful nations on the face of the Earth.
Of course, the U.S. is not Russia; we have far stronger democratic institutions. And our economy is far larger than Brazil’s, but when a nation’s larders make the same mistakes Brazil and Russia made, the consequences are invariably going to be similar.
The people of Brazil and Russia paid dearly for their leaders’ blunders. Barring a miracle, the American people are also about to pay a very big price.
Europe is suffering through this same kind of crisis..........RIGHT NOW!
For a sneak preview of the doomsday event about to strike the United States, just look at the catastrophe taking place in Western Europe right now. In Greece, a friend of mine reports:
“Everywhere in Greece, home values are plunging. Unemployment is soaring. One in four Greeks, including over 450,000 children, live in poverty. Crime is exploding.
“Athens is beginning to look like a ghost town. Everywhere you look, shop windows are boarded up. Of those that are still open, most are running going-out-of-business sales.”
Greece is not alone!
In Spain, similar stories are being told in Madrid, Barcelona and 50 other cities across the country.
Tens of thousands of workers have taken to the streets to protest a problem they thought they’d NEVER see again in their lifetime:
Not just 10% official unemployment like we’ve recently seen in the U.S. — but 21% official unemployment!
A friend of mine in Madrid says:
“You wouldn’t believe what I’m seeing here on the streets of Madrid. Beggars outnumber tourists and protesters outnumber beggars.
“In front of Parliament, riot police stand watch to protect lawmakers from angry mobs. All over the country, in Viscaya, Cataluña, Andalucía, we see the same thing.”
In Ireland, the government faced immediate default and was forced to impose harsh austerity measures that plunged the country into depression.
In London and cities all across England, similar kinds of austerity measures recently triggered the worst riots of modern times.
Entire neighborhoods went up in flames.
Even large commercial buildings were set on fire, and left in ruins. Worse, this financial and social crisis is threatening to spread to countries like Italy, France and even Germany.
Now, you may be thinking, “But we’re different! Nothing like that could ever happen here.”
I assure you: The people of Brazil, Russia, Greece, Ireland and Spain never dreamed it could happen there, either!
The truth is our own leaders have made the same financial blunders that their leaders made.
And that’s why America is headed for the financial doomsday.
