I do believe the economy will collapse, but I have held that belief for a really long time, and things just keep on puttering along. So in this thread I will keep track of the brave souls who nominate a specific date for the collapse. Maybe in the future when we stumble on past these dates with no real change, it will give perspective. So I will start things off with... Egon von Greyerz, 1 August 2017 who says in bold "In the next 3-5 years most asset classes, be it stocks, bonds or property or just currencies are likely to lose 75% to 99% against gold and silver. Certainly not a risk worth taking." https://goldswitzerland.com/will-printing-half-a-quadrillion-dollars-save-us/ That gives a wide expiry date of 1 August 2020 to 1 August 2022. Make sure your baked beans tins expire no earlier than then.
