Click here for Martin Armstrong’s latest release entitled Sovereign Debt Crisis: When? dated January 30, 2012 (3 pages). He has a chart of the Economic Confidence Model on page 2. Mr. Armstrong still sees 2015 as the key year for thing to get really dicey.

  1. OK, so Martin says that in 2015.75 we will hit the next financial “big crisis”. What does he mean by “big crisis”? Is this the infamous SHTF scenarios? Is it a 25% reduction in the stock market? 50% unemployment? Thoughts?

  2. Mike,

    Not sure. Martin leans toward a panic with high up and down movements in all markets. Possibly a revaluation of some kind in the dollar or US debt and of course the economic repercussions of such an action.

    gg says it is the year the powers that be lose control of the situation. They have the power to cut the debt at that time and take the pain in an orderly manner. But will they do that? Will that be possible at that point? That is a difference of years of depression or a collapse of civilization as we know it. I am preparing for the worst before 2015 and hoping for the best. probably be something in between.

  3. GG,

    When you say you are “preparing for the worst”, does your preparations go beyond just finances? I’d be interested in hearing what over preps you are considering. Gerald Celente keeps on talking about his three “G’s”. Gold, guns and a get away plan. I get the first two, but leaving the country would be difficult. Is one really going to leave behind their family, friends, church, neighbors, fellow countrymen, etc. to save oneself? And did you see the countries that he and others are saying would be good ones to go to? Many are in Central America! I think if the poop hits the fan I don’t want to be in a country where the “gringo” is easy to spot and easy to capture. I’ll take my chances here with 300+ million other people. What are gg’s thoughts on this?

  5. MikeMc,

    I don’t post about survival and bug out stuff because there are so many good sites already doing that. I read Mr. Rawles’ regularly. And prepare according to my situation. gg thinks this is a worst case scenario, so someone with limited resources should start with food, cash, precious metals and protecting any other investments. Then move onto other things if they think it would be a right move for them. It all depends on your personal situation, where you live/work, the capabilities of yourself and family, etc.

  6. GG,

    Fair enough! I read there as well. Good advise!
