For (morbid) fun, I am going to start a countdown until the world (as we know it) ends. That date is September 11, 2018.
This is based on 3 factors coinciding.
1. A 17-year double business cycle. This comes from Martin Armstrong with my own twist. The formula for the circumference of a circle is 2*PI*R. Two Pi times 1000 is 6,283. So this would indicate a 17.2 year cycle but I a rounding it to 17.
2. An 11 year crisis cycle. Every 10 or 11 years we have a major systemic crisis. The last time was in 2008. Before that, in 1998, and in 1987.
3. The ongoing collapse of the gold suppression trade, which I just blogged about.
The rise in bitcoin is part of this collapse, as is the attempted impeachment of Trump, as is the fact that we are overdue for a recession. The world (as we know it) will end September 11, 2018. As a fat man once said "I guarantee it".
Disclaimer: I have never yet been right on my predictions, thank God. I previously predicted the end of the world on December 21, 2012 and on September 11, 2015. So do your own research.
