It’s fair to say that China has been riding on a wave of optimism in past decades. Unfortunately, that wave could soon hit a storm of monumental proportions. The country famed for its one child policy has seen sensational economic growth over past years, with growth even hitting 9.5% in 2011. However, growth slowed in the past year, prompting fresh concern over the future of the Asian superpower. The growth that so often fooled the Western world into adulating China has been founded on a gargantuan debt bubble, and when this bubble pops, there’ll be trouble.

It is September 15, 2008. Lehman Brothers have just collapsed, a shell of their former selves and their corpse an icon of the global recession. They said that it was the worst recession since the Great Depression.
One thing’s for sure: they haven’t seen the recession that’s going to happen in 2016 yet. Continue reading “Why there will be a global recession in 2016”
Many of the news headlines that I have seen emerge on my computer screen are of the current US political scene. With the rise of ultra-conservative Republican Donald Trump, along with the ascent of “honest” politicians such as Bernie Sanders, the 2016 election promises to be unforgettable. Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, a conservative or a liberal, American or non-American, one thing is for sure: you’ll be glued to your seat when the time comes for America to elect its next leader. However, there’s one problem (for me at least): I don’t identify fully economically with any of the major frontrunners’ policies. Regardless of the powerful rhetoric of Hillary Clinton or the punchy, powerful words of Bernie Sanders, there seems to be some policies that I just don’t like. While I fully acknowledge that no candidate will be perfect for anyone, the purpose of this article is simply to outline the economic policies that I would espouse, if I were to run for President, and to see people’s opinions on them.

I started this website in February 2015. At the time, I thought it would be nothing more than an obscure crevice on the internet which one or two people would perhaps begrudgingly read. However, now, I’m proud to say that Shrey’s Finance Blog has had an excess of 145,000 views, 2000 Twitter followers, and 1000 Facebook likes. I’ve also had interviews with BBC Worldwide Radio, The Tab, and Maverick Youth (all of which you can find on my Media page). Through this success, I’ve also been appointed to write economic and financial articles for Maverick Youth. I’ve also been given lead positions in some smaller websites. For example, I’ve just become Editor in Chief of Mavonomics, and Chief Economic Writer for Pertinent Problems. Some of my articles have been published on massively popular financial and economic websites, including Zero Hedge, and I’ve even been mentioned on Bloomberg!
I couldn’t have achieved any of this without you, my loyal viewers and supporters. I’m really looking forward to 2016 and what it brings, and I wish you all a splendid year.
