Former BIS Advisor And Central Banker Warns Entire World Is On Verge Of Another Bubble That “Could Burst With Disastrous Consequences”
by Tyler Durden
In an interview with Dow Jones, William White, who previously was an economic adviser to the Bank of International Settlements, and prior to that spent 22 years at the Bank of Canada, warned that the “massive infusion of credit” accompanying the sudden and dramatic ramp up in the printing of new money as a policy response to all problems, both within the developed and developing worlds, is now “manifesting itself in the sharp rise of asset prices in large developing economies, which could potentially become another bubble that will burst with disastrous consequences for the global economy.” He added that the global economy is in a ‘particularly dangerous’ position that can only be corrected if the currencies of developing countries strengthen relative to those of developed countries, according to William White, one of the few policy makers to correctly predict the onset of the financial crisis. Of course for that to happen, the much fabled decoupling needs to finally manifest itself, and for Jim O’Neill to be finally proven right. Of course, that won’t happen. Which is why we ask, the next time there is a systemic wipe out, in addition to naturally eliminating the Fed, can the term BRIC, N-11, and all other such ridiculous acronyms, please be banned from usage in perpetuity?
