A Bank Failure Or Crisis In China (Happening Now) Or A Smaller Conflict Will Be Enough To Push Confidence Over The Edge

The Last Gasp Before Hyperinflation – Are We There Yet?
Among the alternative financial press (the so-called bloggers of finance) there is a renewed buzz regarding a slowly unfolding crisis. Many believe we are near an inflection point.
The fear is certainly justified. Money or credit creation is now exponential. The US Federal Reserve is on a path toward monetizing anything and everything, while the European Central Bank is about to unleash its own bond buying program.
The Inflection Point
We are going to hit the monetization inflection point at some point soon – if we haven’t already. The likely trigger could be indirect; it could even be something small. A bank failure or crisis in China (happening now) or a smaller conflict will be enough to push confidence over the edge.
The conduit for money velocity will be the Treasury, via the Federal Reserve. Government spending on its own will bid up prices for its own economic and political survival.
It is harrowing that modern systems, hopelessly lacking in redundancy and yet working on the surface, are treading on so much fragility.
