Everywhere around us there are signs of economic collapse, and right now companies are literally shutting down all over America. Everything that is taking place in the “real economy” makes perfect sense, and unfortunately the next economic crash are likely to accelerate significantly in the months ahead.
How long can the stock market possibly stay completely disconnected from economic reality? On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose just 27 points, but that was good enough to push it to yet another new all-time record high. Investors have been absolutely thrilled by the extremely impressive bull run that we have witnessed so far in 2019, but there is no way that this is sustainable. Wall Street may be celebrating for the moment, but meanwhile all of the hard economic numbers are telling us that we have now entered a new economic collapse and Great Recession . Just like in 2008, it appears to be inevitable that the party on Wall Street is about to hit a brick wall, but nobody should be surprised when the stock market crash happens.
For example, just take a look at what is happening to the trucking industry. I recently warned about the trucking “bloodbath” that was unfolding, and over the past week it has greatly accelerated. On the 12th of July, we learned that trucking giant LME had abruptly shut down. Then this week we learned that Timmerman Starlite Trucking suddenly shut down without any notice. Of course those two trucking companies are definitely not the only victims of this “bloodbath”. According to Business Insider, ALA Trucking, Williams Trucking, Falcon Transport and New England Motor Freight have also completely ceased operations in 2019. If the U.S. economy really was “booming”, this would not be happening.
Meanwhile, major retailer companies continue to fall like dominoes. Charming Charlie is headed for bankruptcy and will be closing all of their stores. Charming Charlie Holdings Inc. filed for Chapter 11 protection in Delaware with plans for going-out-of-business sales at about 261 stores, according to court documents. In addition, we just learned that Fred’s company will be shuttering another 129 stores as it desperately attempts to stay alive. Sadly, such scenes are being repeated over and over again all around the country. In fact, things are already so bad that even Manhattan retailing legend Barneys company is likely headed for bankruptcy. The all-time record for store closings in a single year was set in 2017 when 8,139 stores shut down.
According to a brand new report that was just released, we are on pace to absolutely shatter that old record. In fact, Coresight says that the number of store closings in the U.S. could hit 12,000 by the end of this year.
Everything that is taking place in the “real economy” makes perfect sense, and unfortunately the economic collapse are likely to accelerate significantly in the months ahead. What doesn’t make sense is what we are witnessing on Wall Street. There is no way that stock prices should be rising like this, but financial bubbles don’t typically follow rational patterns. Instead, they usually just keep going until something comes along to end them. – it will be the biggest stock market crash in the history of mankind.
And considering everything that is going on in the world right now, that economic collapse could definitely arrive sooner rather than later.
