According to our President, American wealth has increased some $8 trillion in the past year. Mr. Trump attributes this huge (unprecedented) increase to his positive psychology and his great policies. If we assume that America’s increase of $8 trillion is 20% of the global increase (a typical %), we can assume that the global wealth increase has been some $40,000,000,000,000 in the past 12 months. How did this happen? What has allowed our economy to BOOM to this unbelievable level in just one year? Is this sustainable? Who was behind this unprecedented growth?

 

Mr. Trump, in his speech today, thinks that this unbelievable growth will continue in 2018 and beyond. He thinks his policies have created this unprecedented growth. Personally, I have never witnessed this type of VIRTUAL wealth growth in our 240 year history. What is VIRTUAL wealth growth? How does it occur? VIRTUAL wealth growth (like our stock markets) was around 30% in 2017. Do presidents create this psychological wealth and the wealth effect which follows? Who is behind all this virtual wealth growth?

 

Virtual wealth is what we witness when our Central Banks pump up asset prices by their corrupt monetary policies. QE creates virtual wealth. Are you aware that our Central Banks and their proxy member banks can just create VIRTUAL wealth via the click of a computer key. Virtual money is what we now live with and few seem to comprehend what is happening. Our dollar is now a VIRTUAL unit. All the currencies on this planet are now mostly VIRTUAL units. What are VIRTUAL units of money? Do they EXIST?

 

Virtual units are also called Digital units. Digital units are also called cyberspace units. And cyberspace units are also called units derived from a banker’s CONSCIOUSNESS. These units are virtual as they technically do not EXIST as real material wealth. There is nothing material to our current VIRTUAL economy. This wealth is actually totally INNER and it has NO outer substance. Virtual wealth is imaginary and economists also call this form of wealth by the name ‘wealth effect’. Wealth effect is purely psychological.

 

All this VIRTUAL wealth which Mr. Trump is trumping about is ephemeral and imaginary. It will vanish with the click of a computer mouse when the psychology changes. This $8 trillion in stock market wealth is virtual/imaginary. The $40 trillion in global virtual wealth is purely psychological and ephemeral. It will disappear faster than it was created. Mr. Trump will be shocked as our economy changes into a reverse direction. This is likely to happen soon (surely later in 2018).

 

Virtual wealth is not REAL wealth. It is not MATERIAL wealth. It is purely psychological and imaginary wealth. But it does give everyone a temporary ‘wealth effect’ for a brief season. This brief season of euphoria will soon end. It will end because it is not REAL or meaningful for REAL growth and progress. I witness the temporary euphoria in our markets and in the psychology of people here in Arizona. All this VIRTUAL stock market wealth does make people FEEL more positive. But it can not last for the longer term!

 

Cycles do happen in economics and we have experienced a year of unprecedented change in our VIRTUAL wealth. The $8 trillion for American’s and the $40 trillion for the planet (in just 12 months) is based on Central Bank rigging and manipulations. It is not REAL or lasting. Our Central Banks have created this euphoric Virtual Wealth Effect this past year. The past nine years have been nothing but increases in Virtual money wealth. All this is ephemeral and temporary. It can not last as it is based upon nothing REAL.

 

Prepare for a sharp change in direction for our global economy later in 2018. Watch the increase in ‘interest rates’ and the slow down which follows this policy decision. Its happening as I write this missive but the EFFECT is gradual (at first). When a crucial threshold has been reached (sometime later in 2018) then the EFFECT will be dramatic and sudden. Our markets (now all VIRTUAL) can change with the CLICK of a computer mouse. We live in interesting times! Finance is now mostly an INNER experience!

 

As of today, Mr. Trump is assuming that his perceptions on the past year are valid perceptions. His $8 trillion in virtual wealth is not his doing. This is the doing of our corrupt CENTRAL BANKS. My sense is that these perceptions of Mr. Trump are totally invalid and mostly hype and deception. We will see what happens later in 2018. If we can live on VIRTUAL (imaginary) wealth, then we don’t need any MATERIAL wealth (food, clothing, shelter, or transportation). All we need is our spiritual (inner) beliefs/psychology. But this is not how markets work in the longer term.

 

In reality, economics is based on production of REAL material products. Virtual pay and virtual stock prices are not material. Look at your smart phone and the virtual numbers in your own accounts. Can you eat any of these units? Where do these virtual units derive from? Who is behind all this VIRTUAL wealth? I think it is our Central Banks. All this will change with PSYCHOLOGY over time. REALITY will prevail later in 2018. That is MY PERCEPTION. Watch these virtual markets for great change in the near future! Enjoy virtual reality for now! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.
