The house of cards (US and world economy) is so fragile that it will not take much
for it to crash. Only a foolish man will not see this and be prepared.
The International Monetary Fund (imf) published a dire warning about the state of
the global economy. IMF: Clouds over the global economy are 'darker by the day'
https://www.businessinsider.com/imf-clouds-over-the-global-economy-are-darker-by-the-day-2018-6

Managing Director Christine Lagarde warned that “large challenges loom
for the global economy to prevent a second Great Depression.”

October 2018 Global Financial Stability Report October 2018:
A Decade after the Global Financial Crisis: Are We Safer?
https://www.imf.org/en/Publications...lobal-Financial-Stability-Report-October-2018

One of the main subjects covered in the report is the massive global debt.
Remember the 2008 global financial crisis? Nations got out of that crisis by borrowing
and printing a ton of money. That got the world out of trouble temporarily. However,
10 years on from that recession, we still haven’t paid off any of the money we borrowed in 2008.

In fact, the world is even deeper in debt than it was 10 years ago in the depths of the recession.
If another recession hits, how could we stop it from spiraling completely out of control?

Now, global debt is at 250 percent of the global economy. It would take
everything the world could produce for 2½ years to pay off all of those debts.

The imf report points out that debt is a critical issue at every level of the economy. It’s not
just federal government debt; it’s state government debt, local government debt, household
debt, business debt, pension debt and more. Just about every level of the global order has
borrowed itself into oblivion.

...the American Journalist in the Saudi Embassy...
Why are people calling a Saudi journalist within a Saudi consulate an "America journalist"? Every consulate and embassy is sovereign territory therefore this is nobody else's business. Not even Turkey's.

Furthermore, dozens of journalists have been killed all around the world recently and no one raised a stink. All of a sudden a Saudi DISSIDENT journalist has become more important than the invasion of the USA from the South. This is a major deflection and diversion from the real issues!

Can people not see that this is a conspiracy against Trump -- who should not have opened his mouth about Jamal Khashoggi, nor sent Pompeo to S. Arabia in this connection? HUGE MISTAKE AND ONCE AGAIN HE SABOTAGED HIMSELF FOR NOTHING.

Now politicians are talking about the USA cutting off relations with S. Arabia, stopping trade with S. Arabia, and all kinds of foolishness, because Sunni S. Arabia is standing against Shia Iran, while the Left-Liberals support Iran's aggression against Israel and the world.

Have you ever thought about applying for presidential advisor? It might be a good idea!!

The debt-to-gross domestic product (GDP) ratio
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debt-to-GDP_ratio

Debt-to-GDP Ratio, Its Formula, and How to Use It
https://www.thebalance.com/debt-to-gdp-ratio-how-to-calculate-and-use-it-3305832

At 250 say , It wound take [every cent] of the worlds gross domestic product ,
and applied to the balance owed, here it would take two and a half years.
I believe that is the way they put it out on paper, not that it would ever happen

But we never seem to pay it back, just keep adding more to all dept.
Interest alone will kill us, but the old living longer is a time bomb.

He worked for an American company and held a green card......and does not matter....the 10 horns will burn the great whore.....Islam will unite in the end...and maybe read a little slower....the point of the thread was NOT about the journalist but the possible Ramifications of us SANCTIONING SAUDI.....

I am getting older, as are you, why do you say this?
[Life spans] are getting longer, less money being saved.
Retirement funds have to pay longer, money they do not have.

The real question i have is why is the USA and the leader of the USA consuming their time and efforts with the disappearance and probable death of one Saudi journalist... ???

Do people have any idea how many journalists in this world have been "disappeared" over recent history? Thousands..

So whats going on here ?

Why is it justifiable to send your foreign minister Pompao ( not sure at the moment what title call your foreign minister) across the globe taking days to get there have discussions and to return when there are so many other international issues of far greater importance then the disappearance of one journalist..
This was not just a Saudi journalist but was an American citizen. There is no such title as foreign minister in the US, the title of Pompao is Secretary of State. Doesn't take days to get anywhere but rather hours. It is the responsibility of the US President to protect the citizens of the USA so the murder of a US citizen by a foreign power is a serious issue that must be resolved.

With older Americans living longer than expected,
it's key to get your financial plan in order.

Americans are living longer , as retirement accounts could run-out of money
