We are in a number of crises: the sovereign crisis, a banking crisis, an economic crisis and a social crisis. The first three crises together are guaranteed to bring down the world economy because they are not just in one country, they are worldwide….A social crisis will develop leading to even more social unrest. All of these factors are why this will ultimately lead to a hyperinflationary depression – the most serious depression the world has ever experienced – and why investors have to focus on protecting their wealth.

von Greyerz concludes his remarks by saying:
“Investors are under the illusion that the system will continue, but it won’t. This is why investors have to focus on protecting their wealth. I’m still of the firm opinion that the only investment that will protect investors purchasing power is physical gold, stored outside of the banking system. Gold cannot be printed, it cannot be destroyed, and it will continue to act as money as this crisis deteriorates even further….

In the short-term gold is like a bouncing ball. The swings are getting smaller and smaller. The price of gold has simply gone sideways for ten months, but now the range is narrowing. While gold may experience short-term pressure, the next big move is going to be on the upside, and investors need to be positioned for that.”

“The sense that you have in Europe is that the European political union and the European economic union are faced with some real dislocations. That isn’t to say that it necessarily won’t survive, but certainly from the point of view of the private wealth in Europe, the money managers for those families are quite concerned…. and quite frankly, they have good reason to be concerned…. we have the very real possibility of experiencing a psychotic break in the markets, such as we experienced in 2008.”
I have a sinking suspicion – a feeling I just can’t shake – based on multiple fundamental, technical, and timing indicators….[that] the end is near. I’m not talking about some Mayan calendar apocalypse kind of thing….[but] a catastrophic, painful, epic meltdown-type endgame for this European sovereign debt crisis…[[Let me explain why I see that to be the eventual outcome.] Words: 810
I think the U.S. government and our central bank has a tremendously transparent view of what is coming down the road in terms of financial distress….I believe the evidence [I present below] shows that they are preparing for this eventual crisis in a command and control fashion, without alerting the public to the coming implosion. The most immediate trigger event is the looming peril of a collapsing economy followed by inevitable civil unrest. I believe they will use the despair that flows forth from the fiscal wreckage as an excuse to institute martial law. Call it “crazy”. Call it “conspiracy theory”. Call it “coincidence”. Call it “fear mongering”. Call it whatever you like but I find it far more insane to shrug off the strange behavior of our power structure, and simply hope that it’s all irrelevant to the future. [Once I have put forth my evidence and explained its implications in this article I think you will agree.]
Why read: It is foolish not to consider the possibility of depression, particularly in the face of the preponderance of commentary over the past many months that rampant inflation is on the horizon. [Here I review, analyze and comment on one such article on that possibility.] Words: 697
The Federal government is gearing up for unprecedented social unrest (worse than Greece or Spain) when Washington is forced to impose “austerity” plans next year… [which will be deemed absolutely necessary to avoid] runaway inflation [that would otherwise occur] to pay for the country’s costly welfare programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps and massive unfunded liabilities. [Below are the preparations presently underway.] Words: 500
Get ready…Save some cash, load up with gold and silver, and be patient…Start by buying top-grade dividend-paying stocks and gold on dips or corrections, and hold your gold. This era will see the catastrophic collapse of all fiat money. Gold should skyrocket. Get ready for crime and violence…
You think the problems are bad now? You wait until we don’t have any more credit. You wait until the currency is collapsing. You wait until interest rates are going through the roof and inflation is going through the roof. It’s not going to be a pretty picture. There will be social unrest.

The United States and most of Europe…risk an eruption and collapse of the mountain of unsustainable sovereign debt built up over the last two decades. Frankly, the U.S. dollar and national debt situation is so dire – and our means to contain a sovereign debt crisis so limited by multiple wars and Washington’s debt and political incompetence at home – that anything could happen, almost overnight. [The best] America and most European governments and the central banking elites, which created the criminal sovereign debt fiasco, [appear able to do is] try to buy more time and delay the inevitable. This inaction means the threat of an immediate US debt and dollar collapse cannot be ruled out. Therefore, readers who have not protected themselves certainly have cause to worry because now could be too late. [Let me explain further.] Words: 1689
It’s incredible that the Mayans forecast 2012 would be the end of a major era. It looks, today, like we are standing on the eve of massive changes in the world that will have consequences for a long, long time to come. The scene is already set….the euro will collapse, and…other major currencies will collapse. The consequences of these (eventual) collapses will be horrible because we will have a hyperinflationary depression.
The developed economies of the world have opened the money spigots…[and this] massive money and credit creation is sitting in the banking system like dry tinder just waiting for a spark to set it ablaze. How quickly it happens is anyone’s guess, but once it does we are likely to be enveloped in a worldwide inflation unlike anything before ever witnessed. [Let me explain further.] Words: 625
The U.S. economy is in an intensifying inflationary recession that eventually will evolve into a hyperinflationary great depression… [at which time] a $100 bill in the United States will become worth more as functional toilet paper/tissue than as currency. The U.S. government and Federal Reserve already have committed the system to this course through the easy politics of a bottomless pocketbook, the servicing of big-moneyed special interests, and gross mismanagement. The article is long but well worth the read. Words: 3565
The economic condition of the country continues to decline toward its rendezvous with an, as yet, unknowable catastrophe. Here is… a look (not a prediction) at a series of not improbable events that could develop [and which] would change our economic world overnight. Words: 1550
