BRING ON THE DOOM
Listen to the MP3 here:
The financial crisis was near its peak when Obama took over from George W. Bush in January 2009.
Under Obama, Schiff expects to see a huge buildup of government debt — to $20 trillion in two years from $16 trillion currently.
“I think what’s going to happen is going to be a currency crisis, a sovereign debt crisis,” he says. “It’s going to be the same thing that is happening in Europe, [including] Greece, but it’s going to be a lot worse.”
This crisis will be accompanied by higher unemployment, higher inflation, higher food and energy prices and higher interest rates, Schiff maintains.
In mid 2008, when macro data surprises were very weak, equity markets continued to push inexorably higher; happily ignorant of reality as The Fed has your back, ‘bad is good’, and the impossible was still impossible. This rally front-ran the economic surprise data – as economists had (in their ubiquitously extrapolant manner) over-cooked the downside and a reflexive bounce and rate cuts swung us into the green economically and market-wise. That surge in macro surprise data proved fleeting and we crashed a few short months after. Four years later and once again we are told that ‘bad is good’, every central bank is just dying to add more liquidity fuel to the fire, and macro data is ‘surprising’ to the upside. However, instead of following the 2009, 2010, and 2011 patterns, we are mimicking that 2008 pattern as 3-month S&P return turns red while ECO data is still rising. We suspect the hope-driven ‘magic’ in that ECO data will rapidly fall to thebottom-up-biased earnings data we discussed earlier and while ‘expecting’ a 30% plunge in stocks is a little much – we’ve seen this kind of hopeful optimism dashed before on the rocks of reality.
Here’s a chart we’ve run numerous times over the past couple of years.
It shows the S&P 500 (blue) vs. initial jobless claims (in red, flipped upside down, so that the line goes up, when claims improve).
The following is a list of some of the post-election firings and layoffs that we have seen since Tuesday night…
A Utah coal company owned by a vocal critic of President Barack Obama has laid off 102 miners.
The layoffs at the West Ridge Mine are effective immediately, according to UtahAmerican Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Murray Energy Corp. They were announced in a short statement made public Thursday, two days after Obama won re-election.
The layoffs are necessary because of the president’s “war on coal,” the statement said. The slogan is one used frequently during the election by Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray, who was an ardent supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
In its statement, UtahAmerican Energy blames the Obama administration for instituting policies that will close down “204 American coal-fired power plants by 2014? and for drastically reducing the market for coal.
I work for the oldest and largest health insurer in the state of Ohio in the underwriting department. At 9 a.m.this morning, my department (about 50) were called into a meeting in the executive boardroom. We were informed that due to a provision in the healthcare ‘reform’ effective 2014 called guarantee issue, our services would no longer be needed, and we were offered severance So Obama got to keep his job, and we lost ours. It is maddening that some tyrant 400 miles away can have such a ruinous effect on peoples lives.
A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.
“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”
Here’s an excerpt from the interview. Click the audio tab below to hear even more from this compelling conversation:
“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.

#6 The following is a list of companies that will be laying off workers just because of Obamacare that was compiled by FreedomWorks…
Dana Holding Corp.
As recently as a week ago, a global auto parts manufacturing company in Ohio known as Dana Holding Corp., warned their employees of potential layoffs, citing “$24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses”. After laying off several white collar staffers, company insiders have hinted at more to come. The company will have to cover the additional $24 million cost somehow, which will likely equate to numerous cuts in their current workforce of 25,500 worldwide.
One of the biggest medical device manufacturers in the world, Stryker will close their facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs in December. Worse, they plan on countering the medical device tax in Obamacare by slashing 5% of their global workforce – an estimated 1,170 positions.
In October of 2009, Boston Scientific CEO Ray Elliott, warned that proposed taxes in the health care reform bill could “lead to significant job losses” for his company. Nearly two years later, Elliott announced that the company would be cutting anywhere between 1,200 and 1,400 jobs, while simultaneously shifting investments and workers overseas – to China.
In March of 2010, medical device maker Medtronic warned that Obamacare taxes could result in a reduction of precisely 1,000 jobs. That plan became reality when the company cut 500 positions over the summer, with another 500 set for the end of 2013.
A short list of other companies facing future layoffs at the hands of Obamacare:
- Smith & Nephew – 770 layoffs
- Abbott Labs – 700 layoffs
- Covidien – 595 layoffs
- Kinetic Concepts – 427 layoffs
- St. Jude Medical – 300 layoffs
- Hill Rom – 200 layoffs
