The chorus of those predicting a major financial collapse sooner than later keeps growing. Until recently, those warnings came mostly from the fringe. Today, they are coming from the heart of the financial establishment.

In this article, it is Harvard professor and presidential economic adviser Martin Feldstein who sounds the alarm. Feldstein points out that if a normal recession occurred in the near future, it has the potential to expand into a full-blown liquidity crisis and financial panic because the Fed does not have the tools to turn the recession around.

Interest rates are still too low to cut enough, and the Fed’s balance sheet is still too large to expand much. The U.S. budget deficit is so high and the U.S. debt-to-equity ratio is so out of control that even fiscal policy will be constrained when it is most needed. This next crisis could produce financial losses to investors of $15 trillion or more, a higher amount than investors lost in 2008.

Feldstein is not Chicken Little. He’s one of the most highly respected mainstream economists in the world and head of the prestigious National Bureau of Economic Research, the private academic body that determines the beginning and end dates for economic recessions. If Feldstein is warning of financial panic, then the hour is late.

The time for investors to prepare with reduced allocations to stocks and larger allocations to cash is now.

The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

HERE’S ANOTHER ELITE WITH ANOTHER PLAN TO TAX AWAY YOUR WEALTH

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation.

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
