China’s Golden Years Still to Come

China’s Golden Years Still to ComeThese are exciting times for China, with the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China currently in motion as the country selects the next leadership group that will dictate the country’s policy and direction over the next 10 years. This could be a special decade for the country. For China, the change at the helm comes at a critical juncture, as the country is currently facing stalling economic growth following years of explosive gross domestic product (GDP) growth that propelled the country to overtake Japan as the world’s second-largest economy.

While many are ditching China, I continue to be a Chinese bull, looking forward. I continue to feel that the golden years for the country are actually still to come. Just consider the 1.3 billion people, the surging middle class, the rising income levels, and a concerted government move to continue to drive the country’s economic turbines to expand the country’s power.

We are beginning to see some signs that the country is on the mend and will surely avoid a hard landing, unless the eurozone and Europe enter a severe recession. What makes the situation in China worrisome is the fragile state of the eurozone and Europe, which continue to fight an uphill battle of high debt and muted growth. (Read “Reminder: Eurozone Has Its Own Fiscal Cliff.”) China will suffer as demand for Chinese goods declines. But there are some encouraging signs.

China’s industrial production surged 9.6% in October, up from 9.2% in September. The key retail sales reading showed sales increasing 14.5% in October versus 14.2% in September. (Source: “Data shows Chinese economy expanded in October,” China Economic Review, November 12, 2012.) And in another positive reading, the country’s trade surplus of $32.0 billion in October represented a four-year high. (Source: “China trade surplus hits four-year high,” China Economic Review, November 12, 2102.)

While it’s premature to say China will not implode, these are good signs, given the government’s desire to power the economy forward and double its GDP by 2020. The transition to the new leadership group should only continue the country’s economic goals established at the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China 10 years ago.

China realizes that its political clout in world economic affairs, similar to that of the United States, is related to the strength of its economy; hence, the desire for economic growth. Money buys power and economic and political alliances worldwide. The U.S. has been doing this and China is clearly set on following this business model.

The Great Crash of 2014

A stock market crash bigger than what happened in 2008 and early 2009 is headed our way.

In fact, we are predicting this crash will be even more devastating than the 1929 crash…

…the ramifications of which will hit the economy and Americans deeper than anything we’ve ever seen.

Our 27-year-old research firm feels so strongly about this, we’ve just produced a video to warn investors called, “The Great Crash of 2014.”

In case you are not familiar with our research work on the stock market:

In late 2001, in the aftermath of 9/11, we told our clients to buy small-cap stocks. They rose about 100% after we made that call.

We were one of the first major advisors to turn bullish on gold.

Throughout 2002, we urged our readers to buy gold stocks; many of which doubled and even tripled in price.

In November of 2007, we started begging our customers to get out of the stock market. Shortly afterwards, it was widely recognized that October 2007 was the top for stocks.

We correctly predicted the crash in the stock market of 2008 and early 2009.

And in March of 2009, we started telling our readers to jump into small caps. The Russell 2000 gained about 175% from when we made that call in 2009 to today.

Many investors will find our next prediction hard to believe until they see all the proof we have to back it up.

Even if you don’t own stocks, what’s about to happen will affect you!

I urge you to be among the first to get our next major prediction.
See it here now in this just-released alarming video.
