All this despite the “promising start” after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was first elected. At first glance, the downgrade is not very substantial. However, this is .

By Thursday, September 3, 2015
Global Stock Market CrashLate last year I wrote an article suggesting the U.S. could enter a depression in 2015. To some it sounded farfetched at the time.

By Tuesday, August 4, 2015
Stock Market Crash in 2016Less than a decade after the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, over-zealous central bankers are risking a second economic collapse.

Economic Crisis 2015: U.S. Economy Worse Today Than 2008

By Monday, March 30, 2015
Economic Crisis 2015The thought of an economic crisis in 2015 is all too distant for too many.

Few recognized the dangerous consequences of the overvalued housing market or loose financial regulations before the recession hit. This .
