    Why US stocks could be down by 50%?

    Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

    US can no longer be looked upon as a consumer of last resort
    Before the 2008 global crisis, US got labeled as the consumer of the last resort as cheap money policies induced the average American to go on a borrowing binge and consume more. That scenario has now considerably changed. What kind of an impact will this have on global growth, particularly the emerging economies? Read on to find out. (Bloomberg)

    Japan - Is Abenomics failing?
    It's been almost a year since Japan used Abenomics to pull the economy out of decades of deflation. However, the big bang package has not been enough to satisfy the financial markets that are seeking even more stimulus. Bank of Japan's rosy growth and price forecasts are being openly criticized by private economists. This is clearly not what the policymakers expected of Abenomics. So what are the various policy options that Japan may go for now, and how will they impact the economy. Read on to find out.... (Reuters)

    Indian financial system in need of a reform
    The Indian financial system is still largely governed by the state. More than 75% of the loans being made by the public sector banks. Overall, around 58% of the deposits that banking system raises are deployed as preferred by the government. While the bubble wrapped system has helped Indian economy remain relatively unscathed by the Asian crisis and the global crisis in 2007-09, going forward the system is likely to promote social inequality and financial instability, the very evils it is meant to eliminate. Changing the way the system works will be difficult, but not changing it might be even riskier. Read on to know more about the problems in the Indian financial system. (Economist)

    Why US stocks could be down by 50%?
    The US is muddled in debt. Value of the US dollar is also falling and it seems to be losing the trust as global reserve currency. Further, the loose monetary policy of Fed is likely to pose inflationary risks in future. Not to mention the asset bubbles it has already created in emerging markets. All these signals indicate that the end is nearing which may lead to a huge correction in the stock markets. And the correction could be as huge as 50%. Read on to find out what other factors could lead to such a massive fall in US markets. (Safe Heaven)

    Is bitcoin a speculative bubble?
    Bitcoin- the digital currency has crossed the US$1,000 mark for the first time since its introduction in 2009. The enormous surge in bitcoin value has made many analysts skeptical about the sustainability of the currency. The author in the article shares the view that current upsurge in Bitcoin is purely on a speculative basis and sooner or later it will crash. He has compares Bitcoin with Dollars and has suggested that as a medium of exchange, the former is inferior to the dollar and its modern derivatives. Read on for the details... (Seeking Alpha)
