How POM Nailed the Future Pattern in the Past
During the State of the Union Address President Trump called this time period a “New American Moment”. No big surprise for us here on POM. This is exactly what we have been expecting for years.
Back on April 9, 2014, almost 4 years ago, and over a year before Trump announced he would be running for President, an article was published on POM titled “The New Industrialization of America – End Game Strategies and Infrastructure Investment”. The fact that President Trump has been extremely successful at bringing factories and jobs back to America, as well as announcing a huge infrastructure investment plan at the SOTU, brings more credibility to past articles such as this one.
From that post:
“The people of the United States need not fear a devaluation of the dollar or its removal as the worlds primary reserve currency. Nor do we need to fear a so-called World War Three scenario. All the central banks and their associated countries, as well as industrial cross-border investments, and sociological centralization, has not occurred only to throw it all away on needless war.”
”America will roar back to life with a re-industrialization program that will see exports explode as the exchange rate of the dollar will be in line with the rest of world.”
Since Trump took office the dollar has been depreciating, tax cuts have commenced, and jobs are returning to America. The article did get some timeline issues wrong around the SDR and sovereign debt re-structuring, but those things could still come, but in a different format than we were anticipating.
On February 9, 2016, just about 2 years ago, another article was published on POM called “A New American Century – How a reduction in China’s reserves will create US Jobs”. That title is curiously close to the phrase A New American Moment used by Trump.
From that post:
“The more we learn about this monetary transition the more we can begin to see that the US monetary and geopolitical strategists have been busy positioning American interests. A reduction of USD denominated foreign exchange reserves will allow America to depreciate the dollar and increase exports. It will also allow them to once again put domestic needs before international needs.”
“This monetary transition does not signal the end of American prominence. In all probability, it could signal the beginning of a new American century of growth and prosperity. A prosperity which will be shared around the world as the imbalances in global wealth are corrected. This is the framework which will see the world model encompass new technologies and bridge new roads into the future.”
Throughout 2017 Chinese holdings of US Treasury bonds did decrease and had an uptick again near the end of the year. Alignment and timing aside, the process of reducing USD foreign exchange reserves while increasing the interest rate and incrementally depreciating the dollar against the renminbi, yen, euro, and pound, will only continue to bring jobs back to America.
Tariffs that may be targeted by Trump against China will only provide the monetary authorities in Beijing with the pretext to reduce US bonds even further. It all plays out as planned.
Both of the above referenced articles, not to mention numerous others on POM over the years, clearly show that the trend was known, with but minor fluctuations in the timeline and micro events.
There is a pattern of introvert cycles which I am stricken with. It comes and goes at 3 to 6 month intervals. It’s been like that my whole life. Though I’m somewhat use to it, there is always a longing for a reliable baseline. It always helps to go back over the years and read the previous articles. We have all come so far in our understanding of the systems of the world, but the fundamental understanding of this system, and the need for change within that system, is what attracted most of us to POM, and has kept many of us here through the ups and downs of the changing world narrative.
At the end of the day, the foundation we have all built here is as good, or better, than most others out there. My promise has always been to research a lot, write the truth based on facts, and shine the philosophical light of self-awareness on our dark regions of self-denial and self-worship.
It will be up to all of you to determine how successful POM has been at this objective.
Expanding now with videos of varying subjects and style, and broadening our understanding of the emerging world of blockchain technology, will only enrich the POM experience. Just please bare with me as I sludge my way through work, life, research, writing, video editing, and the downward inner spiral of introvert madness. The different JC’s are always around somewhere, fighting the Crown Beast and deciphering the new manifestations of fragmentation. – JC
