If enough people believe a financial meltdown is in the cards, then a financial meltdown is much more likely to happen.
InvestorHub kicked the year off with "11 Predictions of Economic Disaster in 2015 From Top Experts All Over the Globe."
According to Profit Confidential, Stock Market Commentary & Forecasts, billionaires are dumping stocks and a stock market crash is on the way. "Smart money" people like Warren Buffet and business magnate George Soros have already jumped ship.
"Despite the stock market's record run and Washington's assurances that the economy is getting better, some of America's wealthiest billionaires aren't convinced."
"In fact, their recent actions suggest some sort of market crash is on its way. Do they know something you don't? Not really. The data is out there for everyone to see. Unfortunately, Wall Street is too busy ignoring the warning signs."
Others, like financial writer Bill Holter of Miles Franklin, takes it a step further. In an interview on USA Watchdog.com, Holter predicts:
"We will be in martial law by this time next year. There is something wrong and there is a storm out there...
The hope is to reset the system without crashing it, but I'm not sure it can be done. There is just too much debt out standing. I think everything will be reset, and China will lead the reset."And then there is Jonathan Cahn who warns in his best-selling book "Mystery of the Shemitah" that September 2015 marks the end of a biblical 7-year cycle. Says Cahn:
"If you are not right with God, get your life right because America is rapidly accelerating into a moral collapse and a spiritual collapse...
If you are not born again, get born again. I believe we are at the verge of collapse."Getting "right with God" is always good advice. Getting ready for a financial collapse, en masse, could end up being a self-fulfilling prophecy.
A wise man once said: "God has called you. It's up to you to say 'Yes'. Not to decide is, in essence, to say 'No'. God sends no one to hell. People, by default, send themselves."--anonymous
"Jesus said, 'I assure you, unless you are born again, you can never see the Kingdom of God...The truth is, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven. So don't be surprised at My statement that you must be born again.'" --John 3:3, 5-7"How to Go to Heaven"
