America’s Economic Future: From Best to Worst Case

Share Article

The current debate over the debt ceiling has created a great deal of uncertainty about America's economic future. Legendary investor Doug Casey outlines three possible outcomes and how to prepare for them.

There is a great deal of uncertainty among investors about what the future of the U.S. economy may look like. In Casey Research’s latest report entitled, “Our Economic Future: From Best to Worst”, legendary investor Doug Casey, Chairman and Founder of Casey Research, examines what is likely to happen over the next 20 years. If you understand the three likely economic scenarios ahead of us, you can plan accordingly, and potentially come out the other side unscathed and even ahead of the game. Those scenarios include:

Best case – facts get faced
Realizing what a disaster the complete destruction of their currencies would be, most governments decide to endure the pain of allowing interest rates to rise and limiting increases in the money supply.

Middle case – facts are ignored
The world’s governments continue under the delusion that printing massive quantities of paper money will solve problems when, in fact, printing lies at the base of the problems. Most currencies lose most of their value. Some lose it all.

Worst case – war
War is the worst thing that can happen to an economy, but it also may be more likely than most think. When the going gets tough, the people in charge like to blame somebody else for the problem. That’s compounded by the foolish – but widely accepted – notion that war is good for the economy and that, for instance, it pulled the U.S. out of the last depression.
