Med Jones - The Expert Who Predicted the Financial Crisis - Economic Crisis

Med Jones (Meds Jonss - Meds Jons, Med Yones)

Med Jones is the president of International Institute of Management (IIM) – A US based research and education organization. Jones is recognized as one of the few experts who predicted the US financial crisis. In his seminal research paper, US Economic Risks and Strategies, he warned about several socioeconomic risks for the decade between 2007 to 2017. The paper challenged the US President’s State of the Union Address, the Federal Reserve Chairman and the popular opinion of mainstream economists. He warned about the US financial crisis of 2008 caused by the housing bubble and the subprime mortgages, followed by socioeconomic challenges driven by rising national debt and the social security deficit, inflation and currency crises. His statements and predictions are followed by investment advisors and researchers around the world.

Jones is also widely quoted on the economics of happiness and managerial leadership. He provides strategy consulting and education to Governments and the global Fortune 1000 companies.

Who Predicted the Financial Crisis | Economic Crisis | Debt Crisis | Currency Crisis Industry & Media Recognition:

  • Top economists and investors alike failed to see it (financial crisis) coming...(George Soros.. Warren Buffett.. Ben Bernanke.. Alan Greenspan.. Paul Volcker..) But just when you think that such foresight is outside the reach of common man, some prognosticator emerges with a specific contrarian view and then with eerie accuracy hits the nail on the head. Take for instance, the small group of esteemed economists and financial managers that called the housing crisis.....Then there is Med Jones, the president of the International Institute of Management (IIM), a U.S.-based research and education organization. Although Jones is less known, he turned out to be the most accurate in predicting many of the downturn’s details. - The Smarter Investor, Steve Beck - US News & World Report - Money

Since 2001, economic growth has been largely fueled by rapid increases in asset prices (housing bubble) and expanding consumer debt rather than development projects, which results in non-sustainable and unhealthy (debt-driven) growth...Many Americans refinanced their homes during the real-estate boom to pay for living expenses. With the expected housing bubble bust (declining housing values), Americans could lose a significant part of their savings"-  Donald Rapp, PhD - Book: Bubbles, Booms and Busts - The Rise and Fall of Financial Markets - Publisher - Springer

These exceptional experts saw what most of the world failed to see". - Economic Predictions Research Project EPRP - USA
