Since 2009, we’ve had the Fed and central banks from around the world deliver decent to better Christmas seasons… but this should be the last one for now.

The economy is the best it’s been since late 2007. Car sales are higher than ever. The affluent, which comprises many of our subscribers, are doing better than ever.

But clouds are gathering on the horizon and there are thunderstorms ahead.

Since 2000, the average household has seen a decline in real wages and going back even further to 1983, there has been little in the way of progress throughout this entire boom. How can the wealthy keep getting wealthier and leave the average person behind without an outright revolt?

Today’s Landscape

Oil and commodity prices are collapsing, as we forecast years ago, along with the most solid of commodities like gold and silver.

Emerging countries are underperforming because they depend on these commodity exports, while the populations of the developed and wealthy nations get older every year. Demographic trends continue to point downward as they have for years and in many cases, it’s been for decades.

By looking at the numbers in the U.S., both the affluent and car sales are projecting down for the coming years. And as for Europe, it’ll see the brunt of its demographic cliff as we did after 2007 and Japan when it fell off in 1989 and in 1996.

Even countries like South Korea will follow after 2018.

Everyone knows I am a lover of history; it’s in my nature to go back and dig around for facts and figures that most don’t even see. So when I look back at all of the things I’ve learned from my research and from reviewing my own life, I’ve come to a conclusion that stands out… you don’t get something for nothing.

That’s what we’ve gotten for several years now: $14 trillion in global money printed out of thin air to offset the greatest debt crisis, deflation and depression, and the most global, since the 1930s.

Controlling The Outcome

I wish I could bring more tidings of good cheer this year… but I can’t.

The more we go into denial and kick the proverbial can down the road, the harder we’ll land when the chickens come home to roost. This is proven by all addictions, including every debt and financial asset bubble in history.

So, if you want to have merry Christmas seasons for all the years to come, you need to do the opposite of what all the experts, economists and politicians are recommending: protect your assets and hunker down for the greatest financial crisis and stock market crash we’ll see in our lifetimes.

Yes, I know that stocks keep defying gravity.

But that’s what happens as every bubble has done throughout history… it keeps expanding, overtaking everything in its path until it bursts so violently that it destroys debt, wealth, businesses and jobs faster than ever.

Yes, with the recent strong showings in the markets against increasingly risky factors like the junk bond debacle in the fracking industries: How could stocks be so ignorant after a subprime crisis in just four states in the U.S. triggered the last global financial crisis?

The markets are on crack and they will end like every crack addict in history — in detox!

This Christmas, give the gift of financial and life wisdom to your loved ones.

Help them to preserve their wealth and income in what could be the greatest financial crisis… and the greatest sale on financial assets of a lifetime.

Don’t worry if you missed the last inning of this bubble game. Preserving your wealth, income and assets will allow you, your family and business to prosper in the years ahead.

It’s by protecting yourself that you will have a merry Christmas today and for years to come. We wish that for you, our loyal subscribers.

Harry Dent
Harry S. Dent Jr. studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of his chosen profession that he turned his back on it. Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning new science of finance where identifying and studying demographic, technological, consumer and many, many other trends empowered him to forecast economic changes. Since then, he’s spoken to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC and CNN/Fox News. He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni. He is a regular guest on Fox Business’s “America’s Nightly Scorecard.” In his latest book, Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage, Harry Dent reveals why the greatest social, economic, and political upheaval since the American Revolution is on our doorstep. Discover how its combined effects could cause stocks to crash as much as 80% beginning just weeks from now…crippling your wealth now and for the rest of your life. Harry arms you with the tools you need to financially prepare and survive as the world we know is turned upside down! Today, he uses the research he developed from years of hands-on business experience to offer readers a positive, easy-to-understand view of the economic future by heading up Dent Research, in his flagship newsletter, Boom & Bust.
