"No Recovery in 2014"

Back in June 2013, I warned that HRH P.Charles can't just take over healthy economies, something causes them to crash-
Lloyd’s of London, the world’s largest insurance company, has warned that the world may not be able to afford another year like 2011, when natural disasters such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the floods in Thailand caused $4.6 trillion dollars of damage.
China shares the largest of the global insurance shortfall. The country insured just 1.4 percent of losses from natural disasters between 2004 and 2011.
It's not just China who is underinsured-
The Natural Hazard Risk Atlas 2011 found that China, India, the Phillipines, and Indonesia were in the “high risk” category of uninsured losses.

The Philippine central islands are trying to recover from a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit the country last month.
Typhoon Bopha, that hit last year, cost $1.04 billion dollars.
Investors will rapidly pull their money out when North Korea antics prove too much and when the Malacca Strait closes.
Southeast Asia’s currencies and stock markets are going to look very vulnerable.
It's not Humpty Dumpty up there on that wall, it's B.R.I.C.

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses
And all the King's men
Couldn't  put Humpty together again! 
The whole world pivoted to Asia, not just the U.S. Military.
