Our Cycle of War has gathered countless emails asking how do we do this. It is hard to describe but everything is absolutely connected. To be correct on markets requires the correct view on so many other aspects.
Russia sent planes close to California and Guam just to show the US they can bomb US territory. This is all playing very well at home for Putin. With the economy turning down, people get frustrated and that is taken out on others. The best thing a government can do is find an external enemy.

The rest of the world peaked in 2007 and is on schedule to decline into 2020.

This is the same set up with the US and world markets turning point coming in 2020.
