As Mexico, Australia, the European Commission, Iran, China, and even Germany are quickly finding out, Donald Trump is not the type of cool, calm, and collected diplomat that they have been able to run roughshod over in the White House for the past 8 to 24 years. In fact, as one former Australian National Security Adviser acknowledged yesterday, Trump has made everything assumed of America in the past null and void.
Listen to a concise 20 minute length audio summary of geoeconomic shifts in 2016 from UK citizen and RogueMoney guest London Paul, who sums up the rise of the New Silk Road/One Belt One Road (OBOR) as the biggest shift of the year.
London Paul also discussses the Panama Papers, the failed mid-July CIA-backed coup in Turkey, Hillary Clinton and the globalist cabal's defeated regime change campaign in Syria, the internal crisis of Saudi Arabia and its rebuffed aggression in Yemen, and the stunning Brexit/Trump victories. London Paul also discusses the acceleration of dollar dumping and Russian/Chinese gold accumulation and Beijing's global leadership role.
London Paul concludes with the Russia, Turkey and Iran talks in Astana, Kazakhstan -- without the participation of the USA/EU -- to end the war in Syria, and with hints that tactical and strategic nuclear missiles as we've known them for the last sixty years possibly being neutralized via Russia's game changing direct energy weapons. This month's revelations of last summer's shockingly errant and embarrassing Trident SLBM test of the United Kingdom's aging missile force in the Atlantic Ocean off Florida being a widely discussed speculative example of this purported phenomenon...
There is no denying that online retail has crossed the Rubicon and is now a primary choice for consumers to use in purchasing nearly any good or service they desire. And just like the automobile helped in the elimination of the horse and buggy industry back at the turn of the 20th century, online retail is doing its part in destroying the paradigm of brick and mortar businesses.
Last week Rogue Money published an article predicting the outlook for the dollar in 2017 as remaining the singular global reserve currency. Now we will see the numbers which validate that foreigners are bailing on that reserve in record numbers.
For the past eight years, the idea that the world is going through a paradigm shift... a frequency change if you will, has been simmering in the background of economic, political, and geo-political events. And if there was a beginning point for it all, it would have to be the global financial crisis that shocked the world in 2008.
It has not been a very good year for the U.S. establishment, which saw their power take a severe blow with the election of Donald Trump as the next President. And when you couple this with the failures of the shadow government's gambit in Syria, perhaps it is not surprising that the once great nation known as America is little more than a paper tiger who is now relegated to blaming scapegoats for just about every one of their failures.
Thanks to Mario Draghi's big yawn announcement earlier this week where he jawboned that little would change with the European Central Bank's monetary policy now, and in 2017, the dollar rebounded from its recent decline below 100 to soar back to just below 102 on the index. And with this level the dollar remains above its 13 year highs achieved days after Donald Trump was elected President, and hovers just below a 14 year high point in overall strength against major currencies.
Of the many themes that will go down in history for the year 2016, perhaps one of the most significant will be the pivot of nations away from the U.S. sphere of influence, and their move over to America's perceived adversaries. Yet even this is just a microcosm of the great frequency change taking place that seems to even go beyond the 'Shmitah' phenomenon, and is similar in scope to changes incurred globally during the second decade of century 100, 200, and even 1600 years before.
