Dr. Doom 2013 Prediction: Global Economic Turmoil Headed Our Way
[ Business]

Dr. Doom 2013 prediction: Economist Nouriel Roubini recently stated that a “perfect storm” for economic disaster is currently brewing, and he stands behind his beliefs. Considering Roubini is the guy who accurately predicted the country’s previous financial disaster, it’s safe to assume that countless buttholes are being clenched whenever this guy has something to say. And while you may think the 2008 crisis was the worst that could happen, Dr. Doom feels that 2013 is going to be much worse.

Roubini, who teaches at New York University’s Stern School of Business, explained the economic disaster looming on the horizon could cause the global financial system to “grind to a halt”, which isn’t the sort of thing you want to hear when you’re attempting to keep your family’s heads above water. Most folks are still trying desperately to regain the foothold they lost during 2008’s disaster, never mind preparing for a much larger problem down the road.

Dr. Doom’s theory: Tax increases and spending cuts will push the United States into yet another recession. This, combined with Europe’s debt crisis, China’s wonky economy, and a potential military presence in Iran, could shove most of the civilized world towards a complete collapse. The problem, of course, is that we’re quickly heading towards the point of no return. Unless something is done immediately to turn the tide, turmoil seems inevitable.

“There might be a weak rally because people are being cheered by more quantitative easing by (Chairman Ben) Bernanke and the Fed, but if the economy is weakening, that is going to put downward pressure on earnings growth,” Roubini explained.

Curious to hear more thoughts on the subject? The video you see embedded below contains a lengthy interview with Roubini, so feel free to dive in if you need more information.

          Giving of yourself, helping others- there is ALWAYS someone worse off than you.
          Who are we to complain?

      • Missy

        Simply because whether we agree or not, the Bible has, and will always be right. That’s why in Jeremiah 10:27 it says that it does not belong to man to direct his steps because he simply CAN’T succeed. If man cannot even direct his own steps, how can he expect to direct the steps of another?? Apart from God, man is a total failure and most people are only beginning to realize that bitter fact now. Man has tried all types of rulerships but NONE has managed to solve ALL of mankind’s problems and that’s why the Bible says in Daniel 2:44 that soon all human rulerships will be brought to an end and God’s Kingdom (government) by his son Christ Jesus will rule the earth instead. Only then, will there be true peace and security (Micah 4) because true rulership belongs to God and not humans.

    train wreck coming? deal in solutions. clear the track for the fiber of American civilization: the middle class. we bailed out the greedy banks, gave the rich tax breaks of all kinds, how about giving the middle class a break because the middle class is where American inventiveness and creativity has always come from. Obama or Romney should immediately propose, not a bankers holiday, but a holiday for the middle class. reduce all middle class home mortgages to 2.5 to 3.0% and this will put $100 to $300 into their pockets each month and increase spending across the board. we bailed out banks; we can bail out the middle class, and get this little train that could chugging again.

      Amen brother! Love your comment and agree wholeheartedly!

  • Chris

    There is most definetly going to be an economic crash, no doubt about it!! The Bible has also fortold that this will happen, people need to listen up.

    • BetterOffNed

      Really? The bible said it? Where? What chapter/verse? I want specifics.

      • BetterOffNed

        By the way, the words are “definitely” and “foretold”, also, you should never end a sentence with words like up, if, to, did, or any other preposition. I’m sure you’ll call me a snob or some crap for remembering my elementary school English classes, but seriously, have enough self respect to know the language that you speak.

        It says in revelations in the BIBLE.talking about the apocolypse…………first rider a white horse, second horse is red the third horse is black and the fourth horse is pale. the black horse and it`s rider holds a scales of balance in his hand and he cries out a measure of wheat for a penny and 3 measures of barley for a penny..this black horse will affect agriculture and crops, food…..a penny was days wages….we will all end up working for what we eat and the clothes on our back…….i don`t have enough ink left in my pencil to tell you what the other horsess mean, if you really want to know, go to revelations chapter 6 and comince to read. it`s all there if you have desernment skills to interpret it…….this is for the reader that said where in the Bible is this talkned about.

      • Len

        The bible says, in the final days people will become, self assuming, hottie, headstrong, puffed up with pride showing no natural affection, lovers of MONEY rather than lovers of God, and from these turn away. His name is Jehovah, or in hebrew, Yahweh. His name means , causes to become.

        A: Yes
        Q3: Where?
        A: In several books of the Bible.
        Q4: What chapter/verse?
        A: Ezekiel chapter 7, specifically verse 19; Zephaniah 1:18;
        Proverbs 11:4; James 5:1-3. I hope these verses help.

  • BP

    This is what happens when you falsely try to inflate real estate prices and and subsidize banks with taxpayers money. Inspite of all the turmoil property prices have hardly gone down in our area. There is no inventory to sell. Banks are holding all the properties, 7 million foreclosures in US and no properties in the market. Best thing to do is bring prices down to 1996 level. It’s time pull the plug and let the economy hit rock bottom.

  • sab

    I LOVE IT!!! Ha ha, this will be awesome, finally real world news, and people running a muck. It’s going to be fun, because honestly, nothing is worth anything except meditations and love and living in peace.

    Let the whole world cave in, I’m fine living free and owning nothing.

  • tonyb

    Sure he’s a bit sensationalistic, but he does have a point, basically the unwritten social contract of work hard so you can live a good life, is a bit of a facade in today’s global economy. Those in power , want more power and wealth and to do that they maximize their investments at the expense of everyone else. So that means fewer and poorer job choices for working Americans and other industrialized nations.. Of course all the excess debt that all these countries have are going to come to roost..Watch out, we are in for an economic shit storm.

        • jane dough

          you’re all idiots. its not bush or obama we should blaming. why don’t we take a look at the felons we call our congress. they don’t have term limits – most of them are incumbents who have been making bad decisions for a lot longer than the 8 years we had to deal with bush or the 8 years we have to deal with obama. the reality is congress makes the decisions.

        • John

          Uh, Nick, the Dems all voted yes for those fake wars.

          • jeff hopkins

            John the Dems were given false info about weapons of mass destruction. That is the only reason they voted for these wars against Iraq.

      • courtney

        yeah, i seriously feel obama is the perfect pallbarrer for blame when the economy and every other ounce of crisis comes down on america. it has nothing to do with race or the man soley. he was just given his opportunity with the thoughts of “wrong time, right face for blame” action behind it. the govt set it up in that way, it could have been any other president, i feel they would have walked the same road in the same shoes and been silver lined set up with this burden. people look for someone to blame, it’s inevitable. fingers should turn inward instead of out.

        • John

          Nothing he has done has helped. He’s only made things worse.

      • David Jones

        maryan, DO YOUR HOMEWORK HONEY!!!! It started way before Bush!

    • Dak

      do you honestly believe that this is caused by one man? by one government? How shortsighted can one get?

      remember this?

      “There is one rule for the industrialist and that is Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible”. – Henry Ford.

      Well, rich people aren’t making anymore goods… they just “trade”, driving prices up: profits for them, problems for the other 99%.
      Companies aren’t making quality goods anymore. Everything is made cheap in China. Made to break, in order to get you to buy more… Remember that 30-year old refrigerator your grandparents had? Try keeping yours 30 years. Good luck with that.
      And companies aren’t paying the highest wages possible. In fact, they’d rather move their entire production line to China, Vietnam or Bangladesh to ensure they’re doing the exact opposite.

      Communism didn’t work because people were selfish, corrupt and unreliable. Higher classes took everything and left nothing for the masses. Well, the same thing is happening with Capitalism. The only difference it the speed of the process.

      As long as the gap between the rich and the poor continues to expand, the closer we are to total economic collapse. But the rich don’t really care, well, ’cause their rich! They’re not the ones that are going to suffer, at first.

      So it ain’t Obama’s fault, it ain’t Bush’s fault, Clinton’s, Reagan’s, Kennedy’s, Washington’s fault either. It’s the human being’s fault. The selfish, greedy, egotistical, uncaring human f**king being’s fault. And it’s bound to get a LOT worse before it gets any better.

    • MO

      Sorry, Obama can’t take the credit for this economy. W did all this and we are still suffering for it. It’s going to take more than 4 years to clean W’s mess up and that’s only saying if it can be cleaned up. Many are being to wonder if it is possible.

  • http://drdoomprediction sonny

    The simple truth is it`s all about greed…..the poor man is the backbone of this country and he don`t ask for much, he just wants a decent job so he can light the barby on the weekends and have some meat to put on it, and take his children to mc` donalds, and maybe but himself a motorcycle, i mean he deserves one b/c he is keeping the country going, i don`t think that`s asking to much. but no the fat cats want it all, whole hog or none. the poor man is willing to go to work everyday, he just wants to be treated like a human……..what the fat cats haven`t figured out is when they get their hands on all the money, after they have striped the poor man bare, guess what fat cats?, there won`t be anything for you to buy b/c the poor man won`t be at work manufacturing it, so fat cats money will be of no value.

    • jona

      Quite an experience to live in fear isn’t it?

    • bob f

      The poor man won’t be manufacturing it because it will be made in China. The reality is that the blue collar workers have become fat and lazy. They want to work as little as possible, have no pride in their work, yet feel entitled to over the top benefits. China used to be a poor Country with no infrastructure, now that not only manufacture our products better and cheaper than American workers, but they also loan the US Government to keep spending. Also, although the “poor man” feels he is the backbone of the Country, he doesn’t even want to buy American made products because they are too expensive and are made with substandard quality. This Country will not get better until everything starts whining and taking more pride in being an American and making our Country #1 again. Stop whining about some people making more money than others, most of them deserve it as it are the risk takers who create jobs and should reap the reward of risking their own capital. I hope our Country can get back to where we were were, but whining is not the answer. That is why our Country is one of the most obese in the world. Go out, change it and get off the couch!!!

        If Mr. Obama gets re-elected (which he will)! You probably won’t have a union to seceed from! (can’t let the college girls go without birth control!)

  • http://yahoo.com Dana

    While the rest of the world is sweating this 2013 prediction, read the following…which every bit of it is true. I learned this in High School in 1977 and here it is again. Thank God for Texas. Please read:

    Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union . (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

    We Texans love y’all, but we’ll probably have to take action if Barack Obama wins the election. We’ll miss you too.
    Here is what can happen:

    1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States , and Texas secedes from the Union in summer of 2013.
    2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas . You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we haven’t had another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

    So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?
    1. NASA is just south of Houston , Texas . We will control the space industry.
    2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States .
    3. Defense Industry–we have over 65% of it. The term “Don’t mess with Texas ,” will take on a whole new meaning.
    4. Oil – we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don’t know. Why not ask Obama?
    5. Natural Gas – again we have all we need, and it’s too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm….
    6. Computer Industry – we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor,Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.
    7. Medical Care – We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employees over 65,000 people.
    8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of
    Texas , Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University
    of Dallas , University of Houston , Baylor, UNT ( University of North
    Texas ), Texas Women’s University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

    9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn’t restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas , it’s a Right to Work State and, therefore, it’s every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don’t like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

    10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

    11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. We don’t have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers.

    Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama: Since you won’t have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

    There isn’t a thing out there that we need and don’t have.

    You won’t have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications. You won’t have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.

    P.S. This is not a threatening letter – just a note to give you something to think about!

      Your ignorance is hilarious! Thanks for the laughs. You should do stand up, wearing a confederate flag-type tee shirt. You Texas bit can be your whole act.

      • Erin

        Wow!! LOL! I really needed a good laugh this morning. I think Texas coming up in the world as it’s own entity is the least of the countries problems. Not to mention that most of what you mentioned that Texas “owns” is federally owned, but at least you hold a strong belief to it. Good luck with all that!

      • Erin

        My bad didn’t mean to post that under your reply :)

      All good points, if Mexico does’nt get Texas back first

    • Chuck

      I’m sure the other 49 states wouldn’t have a hard time coming down and taking what they want from the “big bad” Texas state if needed to. Texas Rangers, are you kidding me? Who’re you gonna call? Chuck Norris? lol

      And its the the state with the 24th highest gdp per capita, but at least you are 2 places ahead of New Hampshire. Beware of those Cartels right below you, and good luck.

      PS the aliens you find in space with your NASA program, you wont be able to build a wall to keep them out. So figure something out, and proceed with caution.

    Truth always slashes like sword but that is just his opinion – what he sees that’s what he speaks so if your mind and thoughts are positive and clear there will be positive come out and there will be nothing to be worried about. Worse comes to worse you will be back in 1700 century – Back to old times the way it used to be.

  • Lukedog

    Fools, he is not saying the WORLD is going to end. He is saying the economy is going to suck really bad next year. And to his prediction I say, no DUH. The economy sucks now, not too much of a stretch to imagine it will suck even more given a year.

  • James Bond

    Well Obama has his back up plans – i just saw in the news he has $100 million dollars in his account. not to mention other Switzerland accounts no one knows about. so go figure why the hell the economy is still down.
