Global Economy

America has the greatest inequalities, highest mortality rate, most regressive taxes, and largest public subsidies for bankers and billionaires of any developed capitalist country. One of the most likely sources of billionaire wealth is through tax evasion in all of its guises and forms.
62 individuals – 388 in 2010 – now own more wealth than 50% of the world’s population. More shockingly, this share of wealth by half of the world’s people has collapsed by over 40% in the last five years.
Behind the extreme highs of the stock market and the official government unemployment data, the US economy is primed for a financial Tsunami that is more influenced by independent Fed actions than by anything that the White House has done since January 2017.
The U.S. dollar is tied up with the market for interest rate derivatives, currently valued at over $500 trillion. As analyst Rob Kirby explains, the economy would crash if interest rates went negative. The derivatives market would go down like a stack of dominoes and take the U.S. economy with it.
