All around the world, as markets cool, political unrest heats up. 

It’s all part of the "Greatest Depression": when people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it… and the markets are losing it, too.

The global slowdown will accelerate and equity markets will decline.

Another week, another stream of mainstream media headlines that simplify complex economic and geopolitical facts and factors, distilling them down to a reason or two as to why markets move and economies shift.

Last week, for example, after the Dow slumped on Tuesday, 8 October after reports of failing trade negotiations between the U.S. and China, markets rebounded when President Trump tweeted brighter trade deal prospects.
