July 10, 2011 People are to be fleeing from Euro to Dollar. Peoples ignorance will soon be illuminated in a lightbulb moment.
I wish to relay the prediction that things are starting to come to a head in Europe. I expect in the next 6 months to see major issues in Europe and then to watch people flee the Euro and buy Dollars. Ensure that any of your savings that are held in Euro’s are switched to Dollar as the problem in Europe continues to unfold.
We are now looking towards a second bailout for portugal and Italy is also on the cards as they are in a bad way also.
You may recall my blog originally posted on Thursday, 29 April 2010 on my old blog site regarding the PIGS of Europe which then became the PIIGS of Europe (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain) Well, as you have seen on the news it is becoming a more talked about subject this year as realisation kicks in.
These countries are now burdening Europe and causing a transfer of wealth from the richer nations to the poorer ones using tax payers money. Countries will eventually tire of constantly bailing out the weaker countries much like a father would tire of bailing out his useless son, only in the case of countries the bond is nowhere near as strong.
Once these countries do get tired and decide to stop, then nature will be allowed to take its course with the start of the collapse of the Euro and a return to a Europe that will once again, be arguing and warring with each other. It’s only a matter of time and a shift in social mood.
If you do still hold Euro, then i urge you to take action now. It is likely better to do it now and get ahead than try to chase along with everybody else when the move happens as it will likely unfold very swiftly once the penny drops.
July 8, 2011 Apple now leagues ahead. Google a close second although leave much to be desired in the simplicity and carefree operation stakes.
With 88% of Fortune 500 companies now rolling out iPhones and NASA choosing the platform to conduct tests in space. Surely you must now be convinced that Apple have really showed the world which is the undisputed best overall platform when considering an abundance of pro’s and cons for each?
I suppose people could always buy another phone just to be different? One day it would be great if every company integrated with everybody and worked towards a common goal for humanity rather than competing with each other.
I mean can you imagine if the best scientists and technicians at Google, Apple, Nokia and Microsoft all worked together to create one standard phone for all the world to use? It be made out of a culmination of the best materials with the best interface that suited all of humanities needs.
Sure we are all different but if you step back a little and take a look at us from the perspective of DNA. We are all 99.9% the same and therefore all have the same basic requirements!
Predictions for iPhone:
I sent an email to Steve Jobs in January 2011 recommending the two major next steps that i can see for Apple and their iOS platform.
1. Bring Nuance technology and integrate it into the phone
2. Look at removing the charger and replacing it with a magnetic resonance charging system.
Looking at the development version of this iOS 5, you can see that there is some Nuance integration in there and some rumours have already started that the 2012 iPhone may have an ‘alternative’ charing method. Mmmm interesting.
You guys may have read not long back that a team of people built a mood reader of the stock market based on twitter and found that it was very accurately predicting the stock market. (See this news article)
They expected that the Dow Would first rise and then on twitter you would see people feeling good and vice versa but they had a bit of a suprise when they discovered that it was the other way round. ie. The mood changes first, and then the stock market follows 2-5 days later.
I was reading that they still cannot explain this phenomenon yet people who have studied socionomics will understand exactly why they got that result.
I have been building my own little system that reads twitter and then gives back a result. It is in its very early stages but i will keep you posted on how it develops. Being from a software background and i love challenges like this so i am confident in achieving a good result and then perhaps even putting it up on this website. This will be developed in my spare time between running business and a family so it may take a short while.
P.S. Current update on the markets: Enjoy this final wave 2 leg up as this is a good mood while it lasts. Next stop, down, and in a big way. Make sure you are not over exposed on the long side or you may get caught up in the cross fire and volatility starts to rise and people pull out of equities and commodities in an all the same market fall.
Just a quick blog post with regard to current social mood.
If we are indeed in Wave 2 of a 5 wave decline (which i strongly believe) then at this very moment we are currently at the peak of good feeling about our future.
Once wave 3 down starts people will not recognise it until we hit mid point. If Robert Prechter is correct then this should occur sometime mid 2012.
Once Wave 3 is truly underway, be ready to turn on the news and watch a credit crunch style panic in the financial markets. As wave 3 is often the most powerful wave. This panic should be much stronger than the panic we witnessed during the first Credit Crunch.
I am also expecting oil prices, food prices, and gold and also commodities to fall in an all the same market manoeuvre last seen during the 1930′s depression.
If you are in the financial sector then either get out or make sure you are a core worker. If you hold Euro’s get into dollar. If you hold lots of property. Cut any losses and run. If you are thinking of selling your car because your commitment on it is too great? Sell it this summer. Getting out of debt is always a good thing but now it is more important than ever. Try to get out of debt quickly as deflationary pressures start to mount up, cutting your earnings and making it harder to pay off your debt.
If you are thinking of starting a business then look at sectors such as the property repossessions market or cheap affordable food. Steer clear of the luxury sector and lots of rich people start to decrease their spending as their wealth starts to drop.
Just quickly on the subject of Europe:
The likelihood in Europe will be that countries either get fed up, or run out of money themselves to bail out their EU counterparts. They will, eventually, allow one of the countries to fail.
This should be catastrophic to the Euro when one of the member states is allowed to fail.
If things look hopeless and grim in 2012, please remember that once it has played out to the bottom, that social mood will change once again and look upwards around 2016 onwards.
It is all just part of humanities progress. I hope that there are not too many casualties during this transitional period.
I am hopeful that around 2016, that people will start to value each other more and start to care more about each other and the environment and we reach the tip of hopelessness and fear.
I personally predict that we are about to embark on a Green revolution (once the shit has hit the economic fan) and that humanities consciousness will overall switch to the next level where we actually care about our planet a lot more.
Socionomics, to me, shows off the pattern of human evolution as it transitions us to the next stage of progress and consciousness.
Idealism? Well i am actually an optimist at heart and always have been

The dollar is about to get strong. It is still weak at the moment and the credit crisis is starting up again in Europe which will cause the Euro to fall majorly against the Dollar. Greece and Portugal and Ireland are already in major trouble as their interest rates are increasing. I am just waiting for Spain and Italy to join them.
As the countries get closer to default the rate of interest they are getting charged goes up.
These are the interest rates that the countries now have to pay on their national debt.
Greece 12.50% (up from 10.35% in July 2010)
Ireland 9.72% (up from 5.41% in July 2010)
Portugal 7.90% (up from 5.44% in July 2010)
THATS MORE THAN MY SMALL COMPANY PAYS ON ITS LOANS BY FAR AND THESE ARE COUNTRIES!!! NOT COMPANIES
Soon Europe will not wish to carry on bailing these countries out, when that happens the Euro is going to lose a lot of value so have any currency but Euro. Even UK sterling is good but the dollar will grow the strongest as it has the most money in circulation and thus has the most money that will disappear from the system during defaults.
I have put all my money into Dollars now and wish for anyone holding Euro to do the same to save them from the loss.
Usually when the interest rate is low in a country that is when it is good to buy that currency. People that go for higher interest rates usually get killed in the devaluation. Look at what happened with Drachmes all those years ago because people thought they were getting good interest and when they came to change their money back to Sterling. They realised it was pretty much worthless. This will likely happen to the Euro as there are many weak countries pulling it down and the strong countries cannot carry the weak forever.
Remember how much the Euro fell during the first credit crunch? Well get ready for credit crunch 2. The big one.
ZeitGeist Moving Forward launched Yesterday and over on the news were two countries with Violence on the streets.
Is it really happening. I believe that the world is now embarking on a transitional stage that is going to be painful for many. Banks will be collapsing and countries will be going bust. People defaulting on debts will continue to increase and more and more money gets sucked out of the economy leaving less to go around.
Inflationists are at an all time high and everybody things that money is going to become valueless due to a persistent inflation with prices rising ever more and more.
STOP. Inflation is not the threat to society now. It is the pending Deflationary crash that will be upon us soon. It is taking time to unfold but i can see it unfolding all around the Globe. Countries are all just about scraping through with the little money that they have left.
How can the world be in so much debt to itself that countries are going bust? It’s time people woke up and realised that this is just a money game that we humans have created and played for many years.
It’s great that ZeitGeist explains a phenomenon that i have been trying to explain to people for some time. Well done Peter Joseph on your work.
Get your school caps back on guys and watch ZeitGeist 3 documentary. It will open your eyes up to whats happening out there and fill in the blanks for you.
