Spending even 150 billion dollars to fix the infrastructure will not get the economy moving again like it did in the past. And how many union jobs will this plan provide? Will it offset the millions of jobs that were lost?…hardly! The key to a strong growing economy in any country is a strong middle-class. But it is an employed middle class that has confidence in their job security, as well as confidence in their government. It is a middle-class that wants to spend and can afford to spend. The key then to a healthy economy is the people spending – not the government.
We predict the government doesn’t know how to fix the economy and will continue to propose spending and stimulus plans that will have the opposite effect. Forcing higher taxes onto Americans who are working for less money, if they have a job at all. Higher taxes on less earnings equals less discretionary income to spend and less spending equals more slowdown to the economy…not improvement. We predict that over the next year declining consumer confidence and less spending will cause the economy to slow down even more. Lower-level, non-manufacturing jobs like clerks and service workers will get laid off, adding to the roles of already strained social programs. We predict that over 50 million Americans will be on food stamps. The past is nothing but history. The past is just the stories you tell your kids about – the “good old days.” Hanging onto the low-level energy of the past and wishing things were the way they used to be is why people are so upset today. They want politicians to give them back the life they believed in and the one they believed was going to be their future forever. The high-paying job, the company benefits, the real estate that kept increasing in value, their retirement nest egg that was going to allow them to enjoy their golden years – none of it is ever coming back no matter how many programs the government proposes. But people just refuse to give it up. People see their future dissolving and are scared. It slipped though their hands due to greed and stupidity of people, banks, corporations and governments. Encouraged by politicians from Presidents on down, everybody built their future on debt and now that debt is crushing them. Although politicians agree that risk and greed was good to build the economy in the past, they can’t agree on what to do to rebuild a broken economy. It’s Humpty-Dumpty all over again.
QUESTION: Falling consumer confidence and less spending will slow down the American economy – what about the rest of the world?
ANSWER: More austerity programs will be implemented in Europe. Eventually, the European Central Banks may get to the point where they write down the debt of countries. This will hurt the U.S. economy also as American banks have exposure. The growing middle classes are in the emerging nations mostly in Asia and also India and Brazil.
QUESTION:You said that over 50 million Americans will be on food stamps. At what point will that be true and how does that compare with today?
ANSWER: By the middle, to the end of 2011 there will be more than 50 million Americans on food stamps compared to 40 million today.
QUESTION: What should people do worldwide to brace themselves for what’s coming?
ANSWER: As Europe has more troubles and their currency deflates, the U.S. dollar will strengthen as it is the standard currency for everyone to rush to during panic times. However, this will make goods and exports more expensive and affect jobs more. People need to save if the dollar is going up and also prepare by having some food, water, supplies and medicines in storage for the tough times.
QUESTION: What do you mean when you said “tough times?”
ANSWER: By the time President Obama leaves office the country will be struggling and understand the meaning of “tough times.”
QUESTION: When will people realize that the past is not coming back and it will never come back the way it was again?
ANSWER: It will take two more years before people accept the “new normal.”
QUESTION: With people still not getting it, still hoping that it will be like it was before, what will this look like over the next two years?
ANSWER: People will gradually get very depressed once they realize it will never be the same again. They can’t comprehend getting by on less. They are still in a self-indulgence mode. Like when gasoline prices drop…the first thing they buy is a big SUV. Getting and having more is still their plan. Breaking attachments to the past and all the stuff should be the plan.
QUESTION: Why are you suggesting that people get food and water supplies together now?
ANSWER: There may be a run on the stores and the banks if people panic. This panic would be set off when they hear that European banks are defaulting and that American banks could be next. European countries will implement more austerity programs cutting back on social programs and higher taxes. (NEWS proof) People will start to think the banks are insolvent and pull their money out starting in the summer of 2011.

COMMENTARY: Commentary from the Mediums: It’s time to face the music. For some of us, it will be more difficult than others depending on how deeply invested you still are in the “old normal.” Imagine that you can break your attachment to the way it used to be and are able to see things for what they really are and are not threatened by what could happen. You think more clearly and make decisions not from the perspective of the way it was, but from what is possible right now. Can you even imagine this? Either way, there is a one-way door in front of us we are all going through. Some will wait and do nothing and get pushed through. Others will plan their future and willingly walk through. You are going through whether you plan to or not.
