You think FSoA Debt problems are Bad?  Try TURNING JAPANESE!

It’s RANT TIME!

Snippet:

seppuku…The first thing you have to realize is that the Japanese are PURPOSEFULLY trying to inflate their economy. They have been mired in a 20 going on 30 year deflation, which makes it ever harder for them to service their own debt, which of course they mostly owe to themselves but try not to let that confuse you. Things have been getting exponentially worse since Fukushima and the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 before that, steadily eroding Japan’s former trade surplus, which now is basically negative since carz aren’t selling well and the Nips have to import all their energy. The idea you can cure this problem with any kind of monetary stimulus is ludicrous of course, but the alternative is for their economy to completely implode, and they are trying to put off the Day of Reckoning as long as possible here. Normally, you would expect this type of berzerk economic behavior to compeltely crash the currency on Day 1, but that isn’t going to happen here immediately, though in the medium to long term it is inevitable. Why not?…

For the rest, LISTEN TO THE RANT!!!

    Are we near the end game? I can’t see how we can get through 2015 without the whole economy collapsing, but I’ve been saying that for 5 years now.

    Infinite growth with finite resources and 7 Billion people. How can people possibly think this is going to end in a happy place. Ultimately this boils down to energy. The economic meltdown is just the symptom. Call it the sneeze. What’s coming is black death. Given the daily ceaseless destruction of our planet as capitalism goes into it’s death throes I can only pray it’s sooner rather than later. The irony is a few countries are well placed to survive the onslaught (eg. Russia) however they are not prepared to make the hard choices. Hard choice #1. Turn your back on the global economy. Become self sufficient again. Keep your oil and gas for yourselves. You going to need it. The global economy is the Achilles heel. Our civilisation is not sustainable so why cling on to it? It’s a concrete life jacket.

    2015 and 2017 are dates that pop up a lot in Government reports, particularly related to oil price shocks and supply problems.

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
