Analysts: New Era Of Chaos Has Taken Hold

Analysts: New Era Of Chaos Has Taken Hold 230209meltdown

Banking collapse has already happened; Crisis is worst ever; Financial system has effectively disintegrated; Mass social insurrection likely

A wave of economists, investors and other financial experts issued a series of dire warnings concerning the global financial crisis over the weekend, stating that a new era of chaos has taken hold all over the globe.

Some asserted that a total banking collapse has already occurred, while others said that the downturn is now the worst on record, far outstripping the great depression.

Hedge fund manager and billionaire philanthropist George Soros said the financial system has effectively disintegrated, with the turbulence more severe than during the Great Depression and with the decline comparable to the fall of the Soviet Union.

Former chairman of the Federal Reserve Paul Volcker said he could not remember any time, even in the Great Depression, when things went down so fast and quite so uniformly around the world.

Financial market analyst Martin D. Weiss has stated that the banking collapse has already occurred and a major Wall Street meltdown is now imminent.

Leading forecasters, The National Association for Business Economics, have warned that the recession is projected to worsen and unemployment could hit 9% this year, 10% percent next year and continue to rise into 2011. In 2008, the jobless rate averaged 5.8 percent, the highest since 2003.

Financial professors Carmen Reinhart of the University of Maryland and Kenneth Rogoff of Harvard University have said that the crisis is “as bad as they come”, warning that if the averages of previous crises hold, Americans can expect unemployment to reach 11 or 12 percent, housing prices nationally to drop 36 percent, stocks to lose more than half their value, and real output per capita to plunge 9.3 percent.

New York University economist Nouriel Roubini has predicted a lost decade of Japanese-style stagnation (a deadly combination of stagnation, recession and deflation) but on a worldwide basis.

“The global economy is now literally in free fall as the contraction of consumption, capital spending, residential investment, production, employment, exports and imports is accelerating rather than decelerating,” Roubini wrote.

Peter Schiff Debates Mayor of Lansing, Michigan

Here is Peter Schiff in a hot debate with the Mayor of Lansing, Michigan regarding the auto industry bail-out.

Note: in this first part it is stated that the Toyota Camry is the top rated hybrid.

Toyota DOES NOT have the highest rated hybrid. Here are the FACTS:

The 2008 Malibu (2009 ratings are not yet posted) was rated highest in class by the widely-respected J. D. Power & Associates firm. In fact, it defeated the Toyota Camry in that class to win The J. D. Powers 2008 Highest Initial Quality award. The Malibu scored 24 of 25 available points among the five categories surveyed by the Powers firm. The 2008 Toyota Camry received only 19 of the 25 in the same evaluation.
