The U.S. avoided a recession in 2023. What’s the outlook for 2024? Here’s what experts are predicting
So what’s in store for 2024?
An economic decline may still be in the forecast, experts say.
The prediction is based on the same factors that prompted economists to call for a downturn in 2023. As inflation has run hot, the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates.
Typically, that dynamic has triggered a recession, defined as two consecutive quarters of negative gross domestic product growth.
The Devaluation of the dollar has been happening for the last 70 years or so, especially after 1971. The devaluation of the dollar is a monetary phenomenon and typically driven by lowering interest rates by the federal reserve to increase credit and liquidity. From the moment of the launch of quantitative easing (QE), worried investors have asked, will the U.S. dollar collapse? There are some probable scenarios that might cause a precipitous crisis for the dollar. The most authentic is the dual-threat of high inflation and high debt, a scenario in which increasing consumer prices force the Fed to raise interest rates sharply. Much of the national debt is made up of relatively short-term instruments, so a spike in rates would act like an adjustable-rate mortgage after the teaser period ends. If the U.S. government struggled to afford its interest payments, foreign creditors could dump the dollar and trigger an economic collapse. A reset means the banksters will have to increase the price of the gold.
They own tons of it so that they can cover their derivative positions … The global currency reset is needed to hinder the most significant and fastest increase in global debt in half a century from exploding … But for the average middle-class family or pensioner on Social Security, it will mean “huge inflation”… As the reset will imply “an exponential increase in the quantity of money” by the Fed (meaning high inflation in the prices of everything) … Excluding for maybe “some food items” that are subsidized by the government to impede people “with pensions linked to the chained CPI” from literally starving!!
When you weaponize a reserve currency for personal gain such as what Wall Street and The Fed have done, on behalf of corporate interests that provide little-to-no benefit to even your own population?
Your days are numbered.
The only thing that could ever collapse the dollar would be a sound medium of value – aka GOLD!
Third world garbage countries no doubt dislike being pushed around by the US. They also don’t like the continuous devaluation caused by printed the FAKE money that is the USD.
The only thing more unbearable for the other 140+ odd countries in the world would be to have their own budgets constrained by real money! So maybe the US is an abusive parent. But no country can EVER return to sound money. Not unless they abandon ALL social gibs budgetary black holes. And ask the French how easy that is to do. As Mr. Rickards points out, “Expectations of a Global Currency Reset emanate from the fact that monetary policies across the globe are unstable and unsustainable.” That is an absolute fact, but one has to be impressed with how long the system has lasted so far without collapsing. One of these days, the whole thing will crumble… it literally has to… but the bankers will obviously prolong it for as long as they can because their entire empire depends on it. This is the main point Jim Rickards keeps making, and he’s not wrong. My guess is that the longer they keep suppressing the price of gold and especially silver, the more likely it is that the currency reset will be an absolute mind-blower, a mega-shock probably happening so fast that the majority of people will never get the chance to ‘get back into gold or silver. 99% of people on the planet are going to get broadsided because they’re not even close to being the slightest bit knowledgable about the monetary system.
That certainly doesn’t sound good at all. Here in the United States, most people have been choosing to ignore all the signs that the economy is starting to collapse. But as stores and businesses continue to close down all over the nation, it is going to become very difficult to ignore all of the empty buildings. But despite all of the evidence to the contrary, the irrational optimists would still have us believe that America has entered a new era of tremendous economic prosperity. I actually wish that was true. Sadly, decades of exceedingly bad decisions are catching up with us in a major way, and instead of changing course we continue to steamroll toward a date with destiny.
Right now I am going to share with you the number one piece of advice that I give to everyone who asks about preparing for the great economic collapse that is ahead. Build up a financial cushion. When things get bad, you are going to need money. I know that sounds exceedingly simple, but obviously most of the country is choosing not to do this. Instead, most of the country is surviving from month to month with barely any money in their bank accounts, and so when economic disaster strikes they are going to be looking for someone else to rescue them. We have had more than a decade since the financial crisis of 2008 to prepare for the next one, but most people are acting as if the next one will never arrive. Unfortunately, the truth is that the next crisis economic collapse has already started, and businesses all over the nation are going bankrupt. But most Americans won’t realize what is happening until things really start getting out of hand, and by then it will be far too late to make any sort of preparations.
If you’re one that avoids economic news, politics, and global matters you may want to pause and lean into this conversation as an objective view of reality with historical context.
These are scary uncertain times we’re living through with an entire banking system failing, politics with one agenda to divide the country, and the battle for global power.
With the economic crisis unfolding before us, you have a decision to make on how you respond in this moment. No one can tell you what is best for you, but as Ray Dalio puts it, he wants you to at least understand the mechanics of what is happening so you can do your own analysis of what’s best for you.
Ray Dalio, the founder of the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater, a billionaire investor, and bestselling author, joins Tom for a sobering conversation about the obvious problems with banking causing its collapse and the moment in time we’re facing with global conflicts on the rise.
The emphasis is on understanding the mechanics and knowing what to look for and how you’ll respond. Ray shares valuable insights on the way banking works, why the collapse of SVB was obvious, the 6 cycle trend that sees the rise and fall of empires, and 3 tiers of security you can put in place for yourself.

People need to start preparing.
If a financial collapse does occur, you are going to want to start prepping so that, should an economic downturn occur, you have enough food saved up while you either grow your own food in the garden to supplement it, or find another source of free food. Chances are you will need food more than water as water will still run, but stores may close down and shelves may empty out quite quickly.
Food Crisis queuing case of a food shortage you should be aware that grocery stores only have about 3 days of food in stock. People will rush and buy as much as they can so probably the food will vanish in less than a day or hours. So if anything was to disrupt the food supply chain for an extended period of time, there would be chaos in most communities. It’s very important to start preparing NOW. There are several ways to start. The choice you make should depend on the event you are preparing for. Of course the best way is to prepare for all scenarios including long periods.
Part of our guide to start prepping involves identifying a but out plan, location, a suitable bug out bag and bug out contents. If a true economic collapse was to occur, there will be a high increase in crime rates, social disorder, looting and likely clashes with law enforcement and military. It is a safe option to consider leaving busy urban areas as these are most likely the areas that will be prone to violence.
America is in trillions of dollars in debt this bubble is gonna collapse and no one understands that.
