I was in some other country, I think China (maybe India). I was shown how expensive basic elements were including metals and plastics. I could then see the Americans trying to buy raw materials with a devalued dollar; terribly expensive it was. Then I saw China buying the same raw materials with another high value currency and it was very very cheap.
This alone confirmed the US was in recession and heading for something worse.
Then I saw the Chinese take these raw materials and make Blue-Rays, DVDs, Plazma TVs, etc. The Chinese workers were being paid in their high value currency, earning more money than ever before. For the first time, the average Chinese person could afford to buy luxury items, build luxury homes, and live luxurious lives. This new currency and social/economical advance spread in Asia, to include China, Russia, India and more.
Within months, the American dollar was worth very little. Americans could not afford basic living expenses, let along luxury items. Before I woke-up, I saw a once Wall Street American, now jobless, about to throw a handful of US cash into a fire for warmth. I'm not sure, but I think I saw Americans on the brink of chaos brought on through financial desperation.
This confirmed the US was heading for total economic collapse (and the Chinese would benefit).
It also seemed like the time from Recession to Collapse was 6 to 9 months, maybe by the end of the year.
