• Recently, foreign governments have been selling US Treasuries back into the US market at the fastest rate in history (indicating their belief in a future devaluation of the dollar).
• The Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 was intended to legally end the possibility of quantitative easing. It did, however legalize the bail-in, authorizing banks to confiscate (steal) deposits. In other countries where a bail-in has been introduced, governments additionally seized pension funds, retirements, etc., often paying for them either with stocks in a failing bank or a bond, then defaulting on the bond.
• The stock market is in a larger bubble than in 2008 and is overdue for a crash.
• Bonds are in their largest bubble in history and are also overdue for a crash.
• Derivatives, which triggered the last major crash, are now at a higher level than in 2007, indicating yet another overdue trigger. ($1.5 QUADRILLION minimum of derivatives... - CP)
• Much of the world is moving away from the petrodollar, which is significantly responsible for the continued hegemony of the US dollar internationally. Many countries now routinely effect payment for fuel in other currencies.
• Russia has recently announced the creation of its own SWIFT system (as did China not long ago), making it possible for them to effect international payments without the need to go through SWIFT in Brussels, which is largely controlled by the US.
• On 15th March, the US hit its debt ceiling and can no longer legally continue to borrow money. It’s estimated that the money remaining in the Treasury will be exhausted on 1st June. After that point, if major money transfusions do not take place, the US government ceases to fund itself, its many agencies, and its entitlements. (There apparently is no plan in place that could provide sufficient funding.)
There's no way out... only when.
