i believe it when i see it, but 2012 would be a good year for that....lets see the end and celebrate it with an ak 47 and a stolen bottle of don perignon (stolen from a the house of paul krugman) and bunch of slaves from local villages

When things get really rough, the Irish steal cattle and women. 

Although, I do like Dom, and this Titanic is indeed a very nice ship.  I think I will have some lobster bisque, poached salmon with beurre blanc, pickled cucumber salad, and a nice white Bordeaux.  There is still plenty of time before the iceberg hits.

Peaches and ice cream with a little liquor.  Cigars and brandy to follow in the lounge.  There is a band playing.  It is much nicer waiting there, rather than getting in the lifeboats and waiting.  Those Mae Wests are so uncomfortable.

"The Worst Case Scenario" is worth reading:

Key line:  "By 2012, there will be a general feeling that the nation is in immediate danger of blowing up or coming apart at the seams. This fear will be justified, given that the U.S. has always been held together by the promise of a continuously rising material standard of living—the famous “pursuit of happiness”—rather than any ethnic or religious ties. If that goes, so could everything else. We were lucky in the 1930s—we may not be so lucky again."

I also think things look bleak, that was a good article you have there.

Had not read it before. One thing being omitted from many of these scenes I feel will take place is a large war. The US just has so much military hardware it will be used. Most people just do not care anymore about how wars are fought and the reasoning behind them. Ike was correct about the military-industrial complex. It is the largest wild card by far.

Matterhorn Asset Management? Come on. An asset management group specialised in gold might be considered biased.

Fuck you. Classic liberal, sunshine-pumping argument. "Avoid the message, attack the messenger".

Google Egon von Greyerz. Go to the Matterhorn website. Read their shit. They have been spot-on in their analysis and this latest missive continues the trend.

The Great Keynesian Experiment is coming to an end. Perhaps a wealth retracement back to 1880 levels might be overdoing it a bit but the times ahead are quite unpredictable and we will be lucky to survive with any wealth and freedom intact.

"avoid the message..." agreed, but conservatives do the same damn thing. ever watched Fox.

Whatever. I suppose I shouldn't have included the adjective "liberal" if that's the only thing you took from my argument.

Again, where is someone refuting von Greyerz's facts? Would someone like to take the other side of the argument regarding wealth creation and destruction? 

My first comment has now been "junked" twice a/o 11:29. Again, no arguments to counter just anonymous junking if you disagree.

dude, chill out - and by the way, liberal does not equal print money until the world has run out of ink, this action has been rampant by both parties, its a political necessity to avoid the collapse rather than a party-specific action.  Its stupid, not partisan.

In this case, the use of "liberal" was appropriate.

Though both Repubs and Demos are responsible for this mess, it is the domain of the sunshine-pumping liberal to continue to recommend the accumulation of more debt to solve the debt problem. Most conservative/libertarians are in the mindset of strict austerity and benefit cuts.

I am in the camp that neither will work. Debt is now compounding at an exponential rate that has exceeded any chance of service by GDP growth. The end is near.

Sure, "strict cuts is the solution, just make sure not to cut anything that affects me" sounds more like it - maybe in a political theory class what you say is true, in reality not so much

"Both parties" ????  There is only one party in the US. There are 2 carefully designed and well deployed marketing "philosophies" that are used to maintain order.

The Dem. vs. Repub.  Liberal vs. Conservative and the alignments of the various "news" outlets to fuel these "philosophical" arguments are all nothing more than a made for TV/PPV event like WWE wrestling. The outcome is predetermined on an if so-and-so is elected then this strategy is executed, if not then our other equally destructive strategy is deployed. 

Divide and conquer is the oldest crowd control strategy known to civilization.  

Please look up te defenition of a one-party political system. The word "Fascism" will come up over and over again.

Point well taken. One party is taking us to hell on a bullet train, the other would use a street car. Same destination, however. Nothing can save us now. Debt is growing exponentially. Debt is now unmanageable and attempts to contain it are unsustainable. The end is near. Prepare accordingly.

Well I would call the one party the "do what is currently in my best interest" party, since that trumps any ideals that our deranged elected officials used to have

Turd, I'm in the inflation camp, though I take issue with the Matterhorn "sky is falling" arguement.  No one can be sure what the future outcome of this situation will turn out to be.  It is highly unlikely that it will turn out to be what Matterhorn is claiming, though possible. Remember Taleb's micro variable impact on long term forecasts.  The best we can do is look at history, and there are plenty of nations that have lived through hyperinflation. 

Our role should be to try to protect the country/world from the worst case scenarios.  We all can have an effect on the outcome.  Make it a good one.

"The best we can do is look at history, and there are plenty of nations that have lived through hyperinflation. "

Except that, since 1971, for the first time in the history of the world, ALL nations operate in the fiat realm. It's not isolated; it's global.

From the first paragraph:

"It is not possible to save a world economy built on worthless paper by creating more of the same."

I wouldn't refute his facts, but his conclusions are debatable if looked at from the point of view of; inflation is everywhere and always a political decision to print. Take out the 'they will print' parts and I would say these guys make a good arguement for deflation.

Then add 'they have already printed', stir well, bring to a simmer and run the fuck away.

I just keep seeing a mortar being launched in my head. Drop it in the pipe, first it slides slowly downwards, until it shoots straight back out at 40,000 times the speed. OK who wants to peer into the pipe and watch deflation.

Not at all. I think universities (before they are all looted and burned to the ground) should offer courses in creative and artistic swearing. Artful self expression should be rewarded.

Don't bring up manners because that concept has been dead for decades. Your daily commute and a trip to the grocery store proves that point.

Wait until things really get tough........

So what snake slithered up your ass today, Turd? He was not wrong for pointing out the POSSIBIITY of bias, neither did  he allege it. Anyone who doesn't look for the biases of financial commentators is a nit wit.
