Will Japanese Bond Market Collapses Be The Catalyst For The Whole Thing To Come Unglued?…(Yep!)
June 15th, 2013
Normally I’m the first one that points out to everyone that tptb can kick the can down the road a LONG time before the end game comes. However, even I think we are running out of road.
Japan really has me spooked. I’ve thought for years they could be the catalyst for the whole thing to come unglued, if they did something stupid. Well, they did, and if their bond market collapses because of it, that could pop the derivative bubble again.
As another poster noted, oil is another one to watch. In the US, gas gets too high, the economy crashes. Simple as that. We are far too dependent upon long chains of logistics for nearly everything to be able to afford high fuel prices.
But you know what, it will probably be something else that no one thinks about, or a small time player that takes down the rest. Maybe another Lehman-style collapse, maybe a country or even city default triggers the whole thing. Who knows. All I do know is all the crazy shit that has happened this year would not have been allow to be made public if we weren’t close. Either they are losing control, or they are on final approach and no longer care if the sheeple know…
The bond market is headed for a meltdown, and that collapse may bring down the governments of Japan, Europe and the United States, says Michael Pento, president of Pento Portfolio Strategies.
The U.S. government was about to collapse in 2008 until the financial system was bailed out, he tells Newsmax TV. “We took on $7 trillion of new debt and took interest rates to zero percent,” says Pento, author of “The Coming Bond Market Collapse.”
