Recently, Robert Kiyosaki, the mastermind behind the ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ series, released a disturbing message via social media. He warned that the US economy’s glory days may be numbered due to a looming massive market crash.

According to him, the US is on a path to financial ruin, with debt levels exploding and the economy hanging by a thread. His analysis shows that the nation is suffering from over-indebtedness, what he calls the “everything bubble” – stocks, bonds, real estate – everything is on the verge of a dramatic downturn.

A ticking time bomb

It’s not just Kiyosaki who notices; the BRICS countries rejecting the greenback signal a broader, global shift. These nations are growing nervous about the US dollar’s fragile position amid the economic downturn and are taking steps to diversify their assets and protect them from the impending doom that experts like Kiyosaki are warning of. The financial guru points to the alarming rate at which the United States’ debt is piling up, a trillion dollars a quarter, like a ticking time bomb about to explode.

He provides resources, highlighting gold, silver and Bitcoin as the anchors in this economic storm. It’s a wake-up call for the wise investor, a signal to shield themselves with assets that may withstand the turbulence, as countries and central banks stockpile gold and digital currencies gain traction as a potential economic lifeline.

At a national level, everything initially seems rosy. GDP growth is robust, inflation is starting to gain traction and the labor market is buzzing with activity. Even the Fed and President Joe Biden may be able to breathe a sigh of relief with these numbers in their favor, but Kiyosaki says a storm is brewing.

The corporate debt abyss

Beneath the surface, American companies are literally on the brink of an abyss. A “corporate debt abyss,” to be precise. Thanks to years of easy credit, these companies are swamped with debt they can’t hope to pay off, especially as interest rates rise and refinancing becomes an illusion. It’s a harsh wake-up call for an economy drunk on cheap money, with a hangover that could be quite severe.

The Federal Reserve faces a challenging task: maintaining high interest rates to control inflation without hurting the economy. This delicate operation has an uncertain outcome.

At the same time, the government’s financial situation is in serious danger, with enormous public debt and a growing budget deficit that is slowly but surely draining the government’s finances. This depends on a delicate balance between growth, spending and the ability to convince investors to buy US securities.

Nevertheless, we should not forget that America’s apparent resilience is part of its appeal.

Although the economy is still dynamic, with increasing productivity and a reasonably healthy business environment, interest rates, looming corporate debt, and the growing government deficit are becoming increasing obstacles to the US economy.

The United States has weathered financial crises before, but the question remains: How long can it continue to defy the odds?

Perhaps the answer lies in the decisions made today, ranging from tax policy to personal investments. Ultimately, America’s future, like the stock market, is not set in stone, but rather lies in the hands of the people, its policymakers, and perhaps also in the wisdom of people like Kiyosaki, who have the courage to warn.
