Debt Ceiling Debate Shows Collapse of USD & U.S. Financial Apparatus Unavoidable

The ridiculous posturing by Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. over the imminent rise in so-called borrowing makes it almost embarrassing to be human. They can’t even get out of the way of their own political agendas to solve a problem threatening to make politics obsolete. Certainly, I’d be embarrassed to be American - or English, Irish, German, French, Swiss, Portuguese and especially Greek, Italian or Spanish. Stand close to any of the Davos men who constitute these nations’ finance ministers and you are immediately struck by the impression that you’re in the presence of the best-dressed con artists walking the globe.

In a Game of Debt Ceiling "Chicken" People Could Get Hurt – Seriously!

The probability that Congress and the Administration fail to raise the debt ceiling before the Treasury runs out of cash has risen substantially... [Frankly,] it seems the height of policy folly for elected officials, intent on a game of budgetary chicken, to chance this downside risk during an economic recovery that was sub-par to begin with and lately seems to have faltered further. [It is important to remember that] sometimes in a game of chicken, people get injured—seriously. [Let us explain.] Words: 608

Why We Need a "Good" Depression Now – Not a "Great" Depression Later!

Do not raise the debt-ceiling. You heard me: block the debt ceiling vote. Don’t raise it. America’s out-of-control, a debt addict. It is time to detox - to deal with the collateral damage [now] before it’s too late. We need to fix America’s looming credit default, failing economy and our screwed-up banking system now - with a Good Depression. If we just kick the can down the road one more time, we’ll be trapped into repeating our 1930’s tragedy - a second Great Depression. [Let me explain.] Words: 1422

Forget the Media Happy Talk: All is NOT as it Seems!

We are not convinced by the endless stream of happy talk that emanates from the mainstream media these days. Our view is less benign. From what we can see, the world is descending into a kind of controlled (or uncontrolled) Great Depression. It's taking time but the arc is clear. [Let us explain.] Words: 1750

Gold Will be the Crutch to Lean On for a While – Here's Why

Regardless of what certain pundits and investors say, I believe gold will have a great run into the end of 2011. [Why?] Because I think a currency crisis is brewing worldwide, and gold will be a safe place to store value. The Euro and USD are fundamentally weak, and inflation is nearly out of control due to huge stimulus packages and low interest rates that aren't helping struggling economies. Gold should be the crutch to lean on for a while. [Let me expand on the aforementioned reasons.] Words: 675

All This Gold Bullion Bull Market Hype is Just That – Bull….!

I just Googled ”gold to hit” – and I got HUNDREDS of pages for ‘Gold to hit $5,000′. Almost every expert in the world is positive that the “value” of gold – and silver – is about to skyrocket. I don’t think so...You may think you are going to get rich investing in silver and gold – or you may think you can protect your wealth by owning it – or you may think that people will stop accepting paper money and no one will be able to buy anything without it. All of that is nonsense. [Let me explain.] Words: 1739

U.S. Financial System Will Die When Interest Rates Rise! Here's Why

Right now, interest rates are near historic lows. The U.S. government is able to borrow gigantic mountains of money for next to nothing. U.S. consumers are still able to get home loans, car loans and student loans at ridiculously low interest rates. When this low interest rate environment changes (and it will), it is going to absolutely devastate the U.S. economy. Without low interest rates, the U.S. financial system dies.
