IMF Says Next U.S. President Will Be The Last

John Rolls Submits: The International Monetary Fund has just dropped a bombshell, and nobody noticed.

Brett Arends, MarketWatch For the first time, the international organization has set a date for the moment when the “Age of America” will end and the U.S. economy will be overtaken by that of China.

And it’s a lot closer than you may think.

According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now.

Put that in your calendar.

It provides a painful context for the budget wrangling taking place in Washington right now. It raises enormous questions about what the international security system is going to look like in just a handful of years. And it casts a deepening cloud over both the U.S. dollar and the giant Treasury market, which have been propped up for decades by their privileged status as the liabilities of the world’s hegemonic power.

According to the IMF forecast, which was quietly posted on the Fund’s website just two weeks ago, whoever is elected U.S. president next year — Obama? Mitt Romney? Donald Trump? — will be the last to preside over the world’s largest economy.

I try to discuss this with the "average" folk and nobody around me believes " this" could or would ever happen... How silly they all will feel when this actually does... Then I bet they will all be in total denial about it... I figure I don't have too much to loose, other then my basic supposed liberties and freedom. Which seems to be diminishing anyhow, every single day!
