A reader sent me a link to a video about something called ‘Project Prophecy’ and the view of a former participant, Jim Rickards (who says he once worked for the CIA) who believes that the USA is going to end up with the collapse of the USA dollar as the world’s reserve currency and that it is subject to a 25 year depression. He also advocated books, lectures, a newsletter, and other things that I did not purchase, nor am I promoting them here.…Here is some information from a related website about ‘Project Prophecy’:Project Prophecy was to develop a system or systems that could in effect foretell a terrorist act in the United States or world wide by looking for anomalous stock market trades that would profit heavily by betting on an unforeseen (to most) terrorist event to occur. For instance, if a peculiar or odd amount of trades were placed saying that the stock of a particular cruise-ship company was going to go down dramatically, the U.S. government could place assets and surveillance on the ships etc. of that company to be on the lookout for terrorism, and hopefully stop the act before it was able to be executed. Also, by tracing back the questionable stock market trades, the government might be able to see who knew what at what time and perhaps track down the responsible terrorists in this fashion. Get the idea?Project Prophecy Is ShelvedJim Rickards and the team working on Project Prophecy were successful. They built a system that monitored hundreds of stocks and companies that they considered vulnerable to terrorist activity and financial gain. In fact, the system they built predicted the thwarted attack on an American airline company which was quashed by New Scotland Yard. The terrorist’s ostensible plan was to blow up a few international flights, the ones with the most Americans on board. While Project Prophecy was not a part of stopping the attack, the data and corresponding happenings did show that their thinking and programming was working. Unfortunately, as you might expect, the very government that envisioned, conceived, planned, paid for, and executed Project Prophecy, shelved project Prophecy. Not because it did not work, but perhaps because it worked too well.Project Prophecy Breathes Again, But Under A Different NameProject Prophecy was resurrected after a time. This time it was known as MARKINT. MARKINT was a derivation of project prophecy. However, rather than focus narrowly on terrorist activities, MARKINT used technology to track nearly any kind of trade that might be harmful or be seen as financial warfare in the markets. After all, the U.S. government realized that financial warfare, or currency warfare, was the new battlefield, and they needed intelligence. http://www.itmtrading.com/why-invest-in-gold-part-three/The video itself has a screen showing symbols of 16 US government agencies with intelligence branches that Jim Rickard says are concerned about the impact on the USA if the dollar ceases to be the world’s reserve currency. Another screen shows the statement, “THE FALL OF THE DOLLAR AS THE GLOBAL RESERVE CURRENCY.”Jim Rickards states that one or more US government agencies are “lying to us” and that the economy is in much worse shape than government officials let on or that many politicians truly realize. He explains why there could be a 25 year depression, based upon historical information and charts and current information and charts [Blog Editor: Here is a PDF document of some of those charts, etc.]. He claims that, “Debt is now destroying economic growth.”Actually, it is worse than that. Debt accumulation is setting the USA up for destruction according to biblical prophecy.The Bible teaches the … READ THE REST of post melding Rickards’ theories with CCOG Bible prophecies (‘Project Prophecy’ 25 Year Depression; By COGwriter; Church of God News; 10/15/14)

The Project Prophecy 2.0 WEALTH SYSTEMBy Jim RickardsFinancial Threat and Asymmetric Warfare Advisor CIA & The Director of National IntelligenceI’m Jim Rickards, and I want to thank you for viewing my video today.There’s no doubt that America’s economy is teetering on disaster. We’re up against a systemic financial crisis that shows no signs of reversing.People who’ve worked their adult lives could lose everything if they don’t take a few critical steps today.That’s why I’m compelled to do something urgent to help…And it’s why I’ve teamed up with Money Morning and its Chief Investment Strategist, Keith Fitz-Gerald.…Warren Buffett has been quietly building a $55.5 billion stockpile of Berkshire Hathaway capital…In the months leading up to this bold move, Buffett had already allocated an additional $4.6 billion to investments in rail and utilities.Now he’s targeted energy infrastructure, liquid natural gas production, and leaders in farm equipment manufacturing.George Soros recently increased his short position on the S&P 500 from $299 million to $2.2 billion.And he’s gone “all in” on agriculture and farmland… Argentinian shale oil… and natural gas from the Eastern U.S.Altogether, Soros has added 182 new holdings to his portfolio. (Do you know which ones?)As my predictions unfold, he could well become the wealthiest man on the planet – while others are losing their shirts.…Sincerely,Jim Rickards

This guy says we are going to see this happen, because there are too many of us wanting and needing too much stuff.
The Earth is fullBy Paul GildingApril 8, 2012 Updated 9:39 AM ETCNNFor 50 years the environmental movement has unsuccessfully argued that we should save the planet for moral reasons, that there were more important things than money. Ironically, it now seems it will be money — through the economic impact of climate change and resource constraint — that will motivate the sweeping changes necessary to avert catastrophe.The reason is we have now reached a moment where four words — the earth is full — will define our times. This is not a philosophical statement; this is just science based in physics, chemistry and biology. There are many science-based analyses of this, but they all draw the same conclusion — that we’re living beyond our means.The eminent scientists of the Global Footprint Network, for example, calculate that we need about 1.5 Earths to sustain this economy. In other words, to keep operating at our current level, we need 50% more Earth than we’ve got.Youtube Version: Paul Gilding: The Earth is fullPublished by TEDPublished on Feb 29, 2012In financial terms, this would be like always spending 50% more than you earn, going further into debt every year. But of course, you … (The Earth is full; By Paul Gilding; CNN; 4/8/12)
