Investors Are Nervous! George Soros Is Predicting Another Stock Market Meltdown!

Hold on to your stock portfolio folks. One of the smartest, if not the smartest investors alive, George Soros, is predicting a worldwide economic crisis and a stock market crash, and it could happen in 2016. When Soros makes a prediction, investors listen. Soros is worth more than $27 billion, and he didn’t inherit all that wealth. He made it by investing.

Soros is considered the best hedge-fund manager in the world, and an 85-year-old soothsayer that knows what he is talking about when it comes to economics and investing. According to a Bloomberg.com post, Soros believes China will drag the world into a major recession and there’s not much anyone or any country can do about it.

How the world got into this situation is a lesson in economics. China has been the go-to country when it comes to producing inexpensive products that can be sold at high margins. Every country in the Western world has bought or is buying China products. China’s manufacturing base was the engine on their economic train for years. Big factories, cheap labor, inexpensive raw materials, and the ability to copy almost every product known to man made China’s gross domestic product rate soared for decades. But then something happened. What happened is good old fashion capitalism.

Factory prices started to increase, and so did the cost of labor. Raw materials increases added more fuel to the mix and in just a couple of years, China couldn’t compete with the other Asian countries that are twenty years behind China in terms of labor and material costs. Even though the Chinese entered joint ventures with factories in Vietnam and Indonesia, those relationships didn’t help China’s economic growth.

The Chinese government realized their problem. The Communist leaders decided to let their manufacturing base shrink and concentrate on the up-and-coming-middle-class in the country. China’s president told the world that China’s economy would essentially be a consumer driven economy instead of an export and manufacturing based economy. Changing to a consumer based economy is easier said than done. It requires a lot of money and patience. China has the money, but the rest of the world doesn’t have the patience, according to Soros.

Soros also did an interview with NYBooks.com. In that interview, Soros said China and the Ukraine were two of the factors that would shake and break the global economy in 2016. Mr. Soros also mentioned the Euro, migrant, and the Greek crisis. Those issues would also help turned the world’s economy into a former version of itself.

At the recent Davos Economic Summit, Soros didn’t change his prediction. The Hungarian-born tycoon still believes the stock market and economies around the world will find themselves facing a recession that could last for years.

A 1980s Automotive Icon Makes a Limited Return

Many of us who were old enough to have lived through the 1980s hold many memories of this decade. There was a lot of good music and movies, and there was a certain energy and vitality that seems less apparent today. There were many people and things that were iconic representations of this decade including President Reagan, the emergence of a green movement in Denver led by Jon Urbana, the then new space shuttles, music icons such as Madonna, whose still going strong today, and many movies that stick out. The 80s saw the conclusion of the original Star Wars trilogy with “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” in 1980 and then “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” in 1983. One movie that was more iconic of the 80s than any other, however, was “Back to the Future” and the DeLorean car it featured.

In a blast from the past, it has been announced that DeLorean Motor Company, will be building some more new DeLorean DMC-12 cars again. A recent federal law has made it possible for manufacturers to build replica vehicles in low volume. Legally they can only make fewer than 325 a year so it won’t be much of a money maker for the company, but it will enable some few lucky individuals who are keen on nostalgia to own a piece of the 1980s while driving in style. The car will actually be under $100,000, so the only issue in getting one for some may be the limited quantity and how quickly they sell out.

Igor Cornelsen’s Groundbreaking Ideas about Investing

Igor Cornelsen is a prominent investor with valuable experience in stock market and commodities investment. He is currently a proprietor with Bainbridge investments Inc.

For this reason, individuals who have less desirable credit must look at the public sector. Cornelsen proposes that the Brazil instill more market-oriented reforms and fiscal austerity to safeguard the interest of the investors. The retired banker and capital investment professional is also strong proponent of passive income investing. This development comes at a time when many people are making inquiries about this form of investing. According to Igor Cornelsen, these questions are being asked because people want to make more money indirectly to avoid the typical business hassles of generating income.

In a piece appearing on Tumblr, Igor Cornelsen highlights the three main benefits of a passive income investment. The benefits include; non-direct involvement, use of minimal resources and guarantee flow of income. Cornelsen notes that at any given case, one must be actively involved in money making venture to make money. However, this active involvement can force people to work under duress, even when they are tired or sick and this can affect productivity and the growth of the business. The solution to this challenge is finding a good, non-direct income generating activity and strategy, such a venture will give an investor ample time to attend to other important matters.

Regarding the use of resources, investing in a passive income generating active is basically a one off-activity that only requires initial investment. This type of venture promises continuous flow of income at a time when many people are hardly finding time to relax or even catch a nap. Because you do not have to actively monitor the business. In fact, according to Cornelsen you can generate income even when you are asleep or away from your work station. Passive income investing can also offer you supplemental income to counter the rising cost of living, which has forced people to outspend their budgets. Through this venture, you will be able to generate residual income while making maximum use of your time.

The Director Of BMG Marcio Alaor Announces A Bank Partnership That Few People Expected


Banco Itaú is the fifth largest bank in Brazil. It is the largest privately owned bank in the Southern Hemisphere thanks to a merger with Unibanco in 2008. Itaú has 700 employees in eight countries so the bank is firmly entrenched in the Brazilian mentality. But when EM.com.br recently published an article about Banco Itaú forming a partnership with the privately held bank known as BMG Bank some people in the financial industry in Brazil were surprised. But the Director of BMG Bank, Marcio Alaor wasn’t one of those people. Alaor was instrumental in putting the $R1 billion deal together.

Under the terms of the partnership, BMG Bank put up $R300 million and Banco Itaú put up $R700 million as capitalization for a new bank named Itaú BMG Bank. Itaú BMG Bank will help both banks obtain a stronger position in the consignment credit industry. Consignment credit in Brazil is a $R123 billion industry, and BMG Bank has a 18 percent share of that market. Banco Itaú also has a decent market share in that industry. The two banks will profit from the success of Itaú BMG Bank by expanding their reach in the payroll loan business.

Itaú BMG Bank will attract customers that may not bank with Banco Itaú or BMG Bank and that is what both banks are betting on. Both banks need to attract a different customer to expand their loan base and to lower costs. In the EM.com.br article, Alaor said the new bank will do just that.

Alaor is a respected banker with a history of successful transactions. He is instrumental in BMG Bank’s success in the payroll loan business. Mr. Alaor didn’t come from a banking father like his boss, Ricardo Guimarães but he always had the desire to be a banker. Growing up in the small village of Santo Antonio do Monte in the state of Minas Gerais wasn’t easy for Alaor. But he leaned how to manage money while shining shoes to make ends meet when he was a boy.

Mr. Alaor is now the Director and Vice-President of BMG Bank and he plays an important role in the bank’s payroll loan business. But Alaor has forgotten his roots. He still volunteers and donates money to the people of Santo Antonio on a regular basis, plus he helps them get loans if they have a job and are generating an income. Alaor never forgets his humble beginnings even when he is making deals worth more than $R billion a month.
