General Recommendation – Alert: Large zone of ​​turbulence by the end of the year

It is of course impossible to guess what the end of the year will precisely look like. Nevertheless, we wish to draw our readers’ attention to the fact that the whole planet is currently in a general and simultaneous repositioning phase.

The United States gives the final blow to an international system (WTO, UN, Unesco, etc.) which it no longer controls[1]. Military expenditures are exploding all around[2] in a race for technological primacy (multipolar arms race). Governments are swinging one by one towards a hard right-wing, which soon will no longer be called the far-right (Austria, Italy, Spain, USA, Russia, India, Turkey, Israel, Brazil, etc.). The parties belonging to the institutional left have been blown out of the water, whilst the radical movements of the left-wing (called “the populists”, see 5-star movement) fill in large rooms to the distress of Europe’s big interests. The international monetary system is preparing to face a huge shock with the completion of the internationalisation of the Yuan[3] and the advent of a multi-currency system calling into question the very foundation of the dollar-system[4]. The crypto currencies land on all fronts[5], bringing along a profound paradigm shift in money policies (will the final money virtualisation not put an end to the money itself?)[6].
