Francis Cianfrocca is a noted writer and financial authority. He feels that we are in for a very rough fall. Traditionally, most crashes occur in the fall and have been doing so for hundreds of years. It probably has something to do with the agricultural crop cycle, where loans get made earlier in the year and then the Autumnal harvest comes in. And bad harvests in our historic agricultural economy led to market crashes around the world. And even though the economy has evolved from its agricultural past, the cycle hasn’t. Also, many people have started expecting the economy to crash in the fall. And Frances believes that 2012 could be a repeat performance of 2008, only worse. Either way, we’ll find out soon.
