Merrill Lynch quietly tells its clients to prepare for a fundamental geopolitical shift in which western (mostly American) dominance crumbles with nothing ready to take its place. Ideas: Buy ETFs to guard against inflation and higher taxes set to be unleashed by desperate governments. Abandon the idea Treasurys are a special risk-free asset class, and look at the paper of places like Australia and Singapore.

    I believe that U.S. Stocks and corporate bonds are the place to be for the next 10 to 20 years. Our country is a land of entrepreneurs and creative thinkers, thus wealth will always be created by U.S. corporations of all sizes. I believe that doing your homework and picking stocks and investing incorporate bonds is a good idea!

    Sounds like a page straight out of Peter Schiff's "The Real Crash: America's Coming Bankruptcy---How to Save Yourself and Your Country". If you haven't read it yet - BUY IT.

    The printing presses will sooner or later slow down and may even stop working all together. Then the day of reckoning will occur with inflation. It is a no brainer IMHO

    Merrill Lynch's experts can now be added to the list of those with an amazing grasp for the obvious.

    These predictions are disturbing for us, our children, and grandchildren's future. If these frightful events turn out to be right, we'll mirror in the 21st Century the Argentina of the early 20th. Political corruption, cronyism, and nepotism historically have never brought anything but destruction and chaos. Yet, we continue to elect to public office individuals whose exclusive concern is to remain in office at any cost, including not representing the people's interests, always taking the side of vested interests with big money whose lavish political contributions keep them in office. It's time to restore ethics and responsibility to our life and end the class warfare. We must become critical thinkers and select the best candidates for public office, not the least bad ones. Throw the bums out!

    Merrill Lynch you mean the firm that sold mortgages to whoever was breathing and then packaged them up and sold them off as riske free! The firm that sold clients preferred bank stocks as AAA in 2007 and 2008, the firm that went belly up and was handed over to BAC at fruadulent price
