Now we are in an election cycle so any chance of further jobs programs is essentially zero as the GOP looks to capitalize on the poor economic performance under Obama.
Gerald Celente goes further in the interview outlining what he thinks the endgame will be in this situation. He points out when an economic crisis overwhelms a society, political leaders will try to create a sense of nationalism. Essentially it will mean war.
