• Another Sign the U.S. Economy is Headed Down the Same Road as Japan

    Thirty years of negative stock market returns and multiple "lost decades" are failures the U.S. economy does not want to experience.

    Yet, unprecedented amounts of quantitative easing and skyrocketing debt in the United States are starting to cause concern that America could follow that path – the same one traveled by Japan.

    Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith-Fitz Gerald appeared on FOX Business Network's "Varney & Co." program Monday morning to discuss a startling statistic that makes the U.S. economy look like it's mirroring that of Japan.

    According to Fitz-Gerald, we're headed down a similarly dangerous slope, one that most Americans cannot accept.

    Watch the accompanying video to hear more about these flashing red warning signs and what Fitz-Gerald says could be in the U.S. economy's future.

      VERY LITTLE DOMESTIC ECONOMIC GROWTH SINCE 2007

      The U.S. birthrate also declined significantly during the 1930's due to the global depression. The economic condition of the time (or our time) is really the "tail that wags the dog". The dog happens to be public mood or sentiment.

      A prevailing optimistic outlook or positive sentiments in the general population influences many aspects of human behavior. In contrast, a dark or pessimestic view suppresses many human activities. Happy people spend more money and take risks knowing that if they strike out, they will be back later for another go. Not so when the public mood is negative. People clam up and keep to themselves, saving rather than spending the limited amount of money they do have.
