Since the mid-16th century, the world economy has suffered

most recently, the Great Depression, falling in the 1930’s, that we’re at
Because it was the 90’s was another slap-bang.
However, there are other cycles that are even more impactful.
That’s a 500 year cycle, one that we’re going to live around
2000. Nobody has yet found a scientific reason to
this cycle, but of course there is. In fact, it has

that’s why there will be such a big revolution in
the structure of the world economy as we know it.
We only have to look back in history to see what happened on

The US is so deeply in debt that in 1995, 57% of tax revenues
only needed to pay the interest on the loan. English, German
and Canada are also in serious trouble and they are not alone.
Japan is even more tortuous than the US and will
contribute to other worsening situations while trying to
off-load its interests.
What happens when you and I can’t pay our debt is that we don’t

all wishes). Which causes inflation, increases in interest rates and
