Global economic forecast for 2012

Gold and Silver Forecast:

Gold and silver will post strong gains early in the first quarter of 2012. But surprisingly, and unlike many, starting in 2012, gold and silver inflows could increase, thereby reducing demand. Enormous corrections are to be expected in 2012. Gold may finally end its bull run of the last 8-10 years in 2012 to eventually present a golden opportunity to very long-term investors. This process will be gradual and the real momentum will slow down from February 2012 onwards. The US dollar will also see an extremely massive decline, in contrast to the extraordinary surge seen in the last few months of 2011.

Nations’ sensitivity to food shortages will be one of the major causes of unrest in the developing world in the coming period. Great revolutions will certainly be seen in almost every part of the world, but especially in the so-called developed nations.

These developments could prove to be a fatal red alert for any further economic growth in the developed countries and also for India, China, Russia and Brazil. As of 2012, there may also be fears of epidemics, but in the long run this influence will surely bring wonderful advances in medicine.

Putting the food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying luxuries or gifts.

2013 is the year the pain really kicks in. The need to transform existing government, business and banking structures will be great, but no one will use democratic methods to ask anyone’s opinion. This is an emergency operation conducted by powerful rulers using secret and autocratic methods. Taxes are ruthlessly levied to alleviate the social disasters of the time, which led to a further drop in living standards, large numbers of homeless people and vast tracts of vacant real estate. The levying of more and more taxes will eventually unleash great and violent revolutions. There will also be major crime waves fueled by the hard times.

There will be corruption and the eradication of corruption. Industry barons will do everything in their power to maintain their advantages through strong government ties during this time. Awareness of the suffering of the underprivileged has barely begun. What we will experience in the next few years is the extreme polarization of right-wing solutions. After all, by 2024 there will be little left of the autocratic structures that are currently being set up to secure the banks and corporations that are currently threatened with their existence.

Financial troubles that instilled great fear in the developed world, particularly the US, in 2008 will reemerge in an even more terrifying avatar to haunt them. Emergency operations (bail-outs) for immediate relief will prove fatal to many governments.

Among these complications would be the most dreaded credit card debt spiral that seems to be piling up on the now unemployed, homeless and fatefully epidemic stricken population. Who and how do we save now?

This answers the question of millions: Are you investing in gold or in food because of the expected shortage and inflation? Can gold continue to rise when there is so little money and interest to invest, when there is so much negativity floating around? Gold is actually sold to overcome tax burdens and also to get instant liquidity to support life. And so the mention above that gold and silver inflows could increase from 2012…..

Large-scale sea harvesting is also taking place during this period in response to scarcity, and with the mass production of factory fish there will be much greater awareness of the ecological disadvantages of the process, leading to more humane standards for fish. Oil extraction from the ocean will play an even greater role, and as oil shortages begin to threaten the smooth functioning of industry, vast underwater reserves in previously pristine environments around Greenland and the Arctic will be exploited.

People will withdraw from the small comforts of a Facebook universe – and seek privacy and seclusion. For beginners in spirituality, the suffering will be too real, and true solidarity will be found in helping people who find themselves in situations where, without the grace of God, they could find themselves.

2012 begins the rise of Africa. It is likely that growing global food shortages can be alleviated by more effective agriculture in Africa, which is currently being managed very inefficiently, and the abundance of agricultural, mineral and oil reserves will finally bring prosperity. India can also benefit greatly from this.
