Stock Market

Sign Yield

Money Morning Members should know two things. First: the 2008 financial crisis was caused by a housing bubble, centered in the U.S., that radiated out through the rest of the world and almost destroyed the global financial system.

Second: The next financial crisis - which is starting to unfold as we speak - was caused by a commodities bubble centered in China that radiated out through the rest of the world and will cause enormous financial damage, threatening the global financial system.

Both crises were aided and abetted by central banks printing massive amounts of debt that can never be repaid. That leaves the world with three choices for how to deal with that debt - currency depreciation (which is why you should buy gold), inflation, and default.

Today we're going to talk about why and, because this is not a simple subject, I'm going to prove it to you, too.

This shift means big profits for investors looking at the companies I'm about to talk about.

But it also means classic retail stocks are facing nearly insurmountable headwinds this year. And it would be a (costly) mistake to expect much good news for them in the upcoming 2015 holiday shopping season.
