This is very long and if it's true, very disturbing financially. I am curious to see what people think about it
or if you have heard of these people. Unfortunately there is no way to fast forward through the more boring parts. The general theme is an upcoming financial collapse that makes 2008-10 look like nothing.

99% of the time people make predictions of financial collapse to draw attention so you'll buy their financial products or seek their financial guidance. Not saying it can't possibly happen but it's a cheap and dirty marketing tool.

This crap is almost 4 years old since it was posted on C-D, his predictions were for 2009, and he has already been convicted of fraud by convincing people doomsday is coming and bilking them of money by the SEC once. His rants have been disproved by time itself since he started trying to bilk people again.

If you believe a convicted con man, then you have only yourself to blame.

I think the collapse will eventually happen, but the timing is very difficult to predict.

You realize how many times the end of the world has been erroneously predicted?

People are probably thinking this thread should be in the Unexplained Mysteries and Paranormal Forum. Or perhaps with the loons in the Survival and Self-Preparedness Forum.

I know I am.

A word of friendly advice......if you see the word "collapse" it is something that ought to be ignored.

I'm sure "collapse" sounds all romantic and stuff, but that's not how things work.

Not curious...

I hadn't heard of him before but I sat through several minutes of that video in the link and didn't hear anything of substance. Does he actually have a logical argument down the road somewhere? I'm not going to waste any more time listening to him claim he predicted things that have already happened in the past.

There is a big difference between end of the world and collapse of the economy. I think we will be heading towards a collapse due to economic crisis, but the timing can't be predicted.
