If The Economy Is A Plane, It Is Out Of Control And The Pilots Are Insane

Imagine being on a large airplane that is climbing steeply and accelerating rapidly while one engine is on fire and the other one is beginning to lose thrust. It is not a good situation to be in, but if there is any hope for recovery, then the smart thing to do would be to level the plane, stop fuel from pumping into the flames, and stabilize the other engine that is actually still working.

After that, it would be time to land the plane safely to perform desperately needed repairs.

Unfortunately for the passengers of this plane, the pilots are arguing violently about what to do, and both of them have really horrible ideas.

The co-pilot is screaming at the captain to stop being a pussy and keep climbing. He’s also blaming the fire on the passengers who were given discounts on the price of their tickets. On the other side of the cockpit is the captain, who is rightfully dismissing his crazy co-pilot, however, he unfortunately is attempting to point the nose of the plane straight toward the ground to counter the steep climb, while at the same time trying to force everyone in first-class to pay for the repairs of the engine.

Neither one of these two has any ideas about how to actually land.

Does this sound crazy? Well if you live in America, your money and financial future are on that flight right now.

Perhaps it seems that the only way to land your money safely is to get out of the markets entirely and put it into either undeveloped property or just good old-fashioned cash, however, probably the best thing to do is to purchase U.S. Treasury Bonds.

Allow me to explain.

It’s worse than you think

The agendas of both the Democrats and the Republicans in America are guaranteed to exasperate an already treacherous economic situation and crash the financial system yet again.
