Financial Advise Stock Market Crash Great Depression Inflation Deflation Bear Market Jim Shepherd's financial advisor service uses a financial investment model that 
		accurately predicts the financial long-term changes in the US financial stock market. The financial investment model used by Jim's financial advisor 
		service predicted both the 1987 and 1929 stock market crashes. Many other smaller interim financial moves also were predicted, including the
		beginning of the 2000 Bear stock market in late 1999. Both inflation and the current descent toward deflation, that was responsible for the great
		depression, are measured by this same financial investment model that has been used to predict both bear markets and new bull markets,
		far in advance of anything available in the U.S. financial markets.

NOTES TO PERFORMANCE DATA

The returns depicted herein are approximate returns that would have been achieved if an investor had placed an equal amount of money in each of the 30 DJIA stocks as of the model's buy signals in 1982 and followed the directives of the model as to subsequent investment positions to the present. No guarantee of any kind is made that any individual could have or would have achieved these precise results. These data are for illustrative purposes only and should not be relied upon to make investment decisions. You should carefully consider your own situation before making any investment and you should consult with your own investment advisor in order to determine the suitability of any investment discussed herein or in any material presented in the future. No guarantee of future results is given or implied and the company and its agents are not in the business of rendering investment advice. The returns depicted herein simply portray approximately what could have been achieved if an investor had exactly followed directives of the model at the precise time each signal was generated and no warranty is made that any future results would be similarly profitable. These returns are based on the assumption that an investor would have received dividends during the periods when invested in stocks. There is no provision made for commission or other fees or expenses in any of the data. When out of stocks pursuant to signals in the model, profits that would have accrued included capital gains on Treasury Instruments and interest payments received on said instruments. It is assumed that all dividends and interest receipts were immediately reinvested into similar investments. An investor should not rely on these returns as being predictive of any future outcome. All investments carry risk.

Reasons for world wide economic crisis

It is my contention that one of the key reasons we are facing a worldwide economic crisis is due to the relaxation of banking regulations in the late 1990s.
