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.

During the course of a week, our research staff searches through news stories; reports by the various Federal Reserve banks; surveys conducted by universities and other private institutions; and occasionally we receive an interesting investment newsletter that we think would be of interest to you.

NOTE: Although we attempt to avoid news sites that require registration or survey participation before viewing a particular article, these requirements are sometimes added after the first few hours of publishing and after we have added the link to our service. Occasionally, some news agencies will discontinue a link, making it only available to their paid on-line subscribers. Unfortunately we have no control over the actions that are the responsibility of the news agencies owning the rights to their stories.
