A Global Recession Is Coming And It’s Going To Be Pretty According To George Soros

George Soros has a way about him that commands respect and attention. He is one of the richest people in the world, and, for the most part, he made his money investing in the global economy. Soros is an expert in global economics, so when he has something to say about the condition of the world people usually listen. They may not agree, but they listen. Soros recently told a Bloomberg interviewer that all the signs for a catastrophic economic meltdown are present, and, at this point, there’s little chance of derailing it.

Soros told the interviewer that the signs have been around for the last three years. The emerging market growth that was fueling global economic growth stalled in last quarter of 2013, and the countries that make up the BRICS nations haven’t recovered. In fact the economies of Brazil and South Africa have gotten worse. India has been the strongest member of the union, but even India’s GDP is starting to show signs of a slowdown, and Russia in certainly on the doorstep of a recession. Soros claims the Russians are in a recession, but like China that word isn’t how their governments describe what is happening economically in their countries.

The biggest warning came from China a few years ago when their manufacturing base started to collapse. China is having a hard time keeping prices down even though they are manipulating their currency to make than happen. The Chinese government is trying to keep their stock market stable, but Chinese investors are leaving the stock market in search for more productive assets. The government of China has put a stop to money leaving the country, so there is an enormous amount of unrest and fear in the Chinese marketplace.

The United States economy is still growing at a rate of more than 3.5 percent a year, but Soros thinks that will end during the second half of 2016. The U.S. stock market is experiencing trading ups and downs that will eventually lead to all downs, according to Soros. And even though the unemployment rate is tracking at 4.9 percent, that rate will go up in the first half of 2017. Oil prices are another sign.

The economies of countries around the world are feeling the impact of cheap oil. Soros sold all his oil stocks, and that means crude oil prices are not going to increase. Oil prices could stay where they are, but there is a chance prices may go down over the next 12 months. There isn’t much talk about a global recession in the United States political arena. The fast-talking politicians stay away from touches subjects like recessions even though the state of the economy is a priority in voters’ minds.

Arrogance, Complacency And Stubbornness Characterize The European Union According To George Soros


Europe tried to pull itself together into one prosperous economy 30 years ago by forming the European Union. The original Union was an agreement between two countries, but it quickly expanded its membership. Members of the EU are a diverse group of independent nations with their own rules and intentions. If the truth be known, several of the members have long-standing disagreements with each other, and those mini-conflicts were never resolved. But in the name of economic prosperity and security the nations got together, opened their borders, created a new currency, and started doing business.

George Soros, the wealthy investor and foundation head, recently told a German magazine that the European Union is an arrogant, stubborn and complacent group that is self-destructing. Soros believes the EU is heading for a breakup, and there’s not much anyone can do to stop it. Mr. Soros posted the interview on his website, and what he said about the EU is true. The euro is in crisis mode thanks to an incredible amount of debt. Several member nations are on the verge of bankruptcy or are bankrupt, and a couple of countries want to leave the EU. Britain is one of those countries.

Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron is renegotiating his country’s relationship with the EU. Cameron has asked for a modest number of reforms, and some analysts say the unbending EU leaders refused his package of reforms almost immediately. One of the major issues is a minor change in migrants’ rights to claim welfare once they enter a country. That request was denied as well.

The supreme arrogance that EU leaders display has caused more problems than solutions, and according to Soros their position on changing some of the rules concerning migration is another example of shortsighted thinking. Rather than building a closer Union, the leaders are stubborn enough to die from self-inflicted wounds.

George Soros said the migration crisis could be the ultimate fail for the European Union. Member nations are dealing with the migration in their own way, but several of those nations refuse to deal with it at all. They have closed their borders and their eyes to the human suffering for purely nationalistic or religious reasons. Mr. Soros thinks more than 5 million more refugees will reach Europe in 2016 unless the EU pulls itself together and develops a plan that will help these people find homes closer to their original homes.

The EU is unwilling to find a solution or they believe setting up check points and refusing entry is the best solution. Soros calls that fear-based reactions not a solution. Unless someone steps up and takes the lead in the EU, the prediction that there will be a European Union break up may become very real in 2016.

Newcomers to the Liquor Business

I realize some equate the name Dick DeVos with words that are not worth mentioning here. However, I find that he has quite the enterprising mind. Not only does he run one of the five DeVos charities – which his wife Betsy DeVos helps him with – but he has published a book and has a new business venture underway.

This new business venture is more of an acquisition, but I stand by my wording. DeVos is planning to buy the Coppercraft Distillery, and his holding company Windquest Group would hold the liquor license. While no one involved in the acquisition can say anything, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has noted that Windquest will be accepting mail and documents on behalf of Coppercraft.

This acquisition is going to be a tricky one. Not only must DeVos acquire the license, which I have found could take up to six months for approval, but he must also begin expanding. At the moment, Coppercraft has a 9,000 square-foot distillery, which includes a tasting room with seating for 50 people. This facility is located in Holland Township, at 184 N. 120th Avenue. As of when this article was written, Coppercraft is owned by Walter Catton III.

Catton is quite excited for the DeVos acquisition of Coppercraft. He’s been looking for someone to invest in his distillery – which opened in the latter part of 2013. The company is currently serving clients in over 100 locations across Michigan, Colorado, and Illinois. Restaurants and party stories are among the majority of the clients.

If all goes according to plan for Dick DeVos and Walter Catton III, Coppercraft is expected to add a kitchen to the tasting room, expanding the wine and beer selection to include hand crafted drinks, and to increase the capacity to distribute the wine and beer.

Dick believes that liquor sales will increase tourism to his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is involved in many philanthropic endeavors creating a better economy, education and lifestyle for the people of Michigan. He even founded a charter school that is aviation focused to create opportunities for those less fortunate than himself. Dick is an accomplished pilot and wanted to spread his passion for flight.

Dr.Sergio Cortes Begins to Evaluate The Flooded Area

State Sec.of Health Sergio Cortes was recently contacted by Extra.Global while he was on his way to meet his evaluation team as they are scheduled to tour the in Xerém, Duque de Caxias in the areas in that region that were more severely than by the recent flooding and landslides caused by unseasonably powerful torrential downpours of rain. The state government has recently constructed seven Dengue Hydration centers that have also been used as emergency shelters for residents taking refuge from the landslides and flooding. Each of the emergency shelters have 12 chairs that are to serve as hydration stations. Atanews reported Health Sec. Cortes has also called for classes to begin teaching workers in the emergency shelters so they will have the ability to be able to detect early symptoms of diseases. Through early detection and isolation of the patients the transmission of the virus can be overridden as long as no mosquito can bite an infected person because people infected with the Zika virus are not contagious.Dr.
Sergio has explained on niteroi.gov that local residents will be assisted in disinfecting their home water tanks and the State Department passed out 10,000 bottles of sodium hypochlorite so that the residents can go disinfect their systems. The Brazilian Government has sent out 200,000 troops throughout the country to help with the flooding victims in to help with the massive project of decontaminating the floodwaters. The goal here is to prevent the mosquitoes that have been blamed for transmitting the Zika virus and dengue throughout the area from being able to breed by aggressively attacking every grounds which is really water. 3000 antibacterial tablets of have been passed out as a measure to combat leptospirosis. Dr. Cortes explains the there is a lot of contaminated water in the area and that the fact that there is so much garbage accumulated due to the breakdown of the sanitation systems for the city.

By confronting the Aedes aegypti mosquito, Health Sec. Sergio Cortes is really attacking the heart of the problem. Hard to believe that such a small inset is actually a deadly killer. It transmits Zika virus which alone is responsible almost 4000 children being born in Brazil with birth defects since late 2014. The Aedes aegypti mosquito is also the transmitter of dengue fever, yellow fever, hepatitis A and diarrhea.

Brenda Wardle: Defending Oscar Pistorius

He received a suspended three-year sentence for the conviction of reckless endangerment. In addition, he’s liable to spend up to five years for the charge of culpable homicide.
