At 5:00 Ergan says there are only 2 alternatives:

1- Austerity and collapse of asset prices and the banking system


Nice but there is another view:

Open general question: What the hell is with ALL the English trash all over CNBC whats up with that? Is it because they believe an English accent sounds more credible or something? Only thing I can figure.

And whats with that street person in rags at 8:00?

Seeing the major role the Bank of England played in the first Revolution, I find it fitting CNBC (the financial arm of the corporate ran government propaganda machine)  would be bringing in English shills to dole out financial advice to the American sheeple.

It's the CNBC World Channel for those of us with cable TV. The street person at 8:00 is Cramer.

Sheep - you are obviously very new to this game...

Yes on the first question and the woman at 8min has been the European market correspondent for years...

It's no wonder, with this knowledge, the majority of your comments here on ZH are useless.

There was a time when Time itself ticked-on unabated, and length was as ridgid as a measuring rod...and then along came Einstein and destroyed everything we desperately clung-to for reasurance that the world was real.

Historically, this economic situation has never been seen before, to everybody, so there are no experts, there are no wise old men...or wise old bag-ladies for that matter.

Egon is from Sweden (where they teach British English) and has lived for 17 years (or so) in London. Hence the British-Swedish accent.

The same reason they like to use english on infomercials. To sell trash.

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

Biased yet oddly sensible...

I realize that I complain all the time about people attacking the messenger and not the message. In this case, however, I'm going to do it anyway.

My thought was that Gilbert went on a seven day drunk, fucked Austin Powers, and this dick pimple was the offspring.

I am not sure if you have bested yourself with this avatar, or not. This one can be glanced at and taken as abstract art of some kind. The other one was quite clear what it was.

Hilarious... they have to create a paper gold market,  just to met demand.. i.e. a Hoax... and still the paper price is $1200.

Morons. Who latter should face criminal charges for destroying many lives.

What I heard from this interview is that we are all going to take a huge haircut no matter what you invest in when trying to hedge against the dollar.  This is in line with my thinking as well.  No one will win in the end.  NO ONE! 

Kyle Bass said just recently, as he did, "Where is the money going to come from"?

Freaking crooks!

It's amazing how easy a concept this is.  Even a mush-mouth like this guy can grasp it.  

The real problem however, isn't the printing of money (although truly a crime as well) is the nature of fractional reserve banking. The Fed, short of handing out tens of thousands to every man, woman and child couldn't print enough to account for the contraction of banking structure that has been happening for the last couple of years.  So what is left is debt without any money to roll over the debt once again.  The can sooner or later can't be kicked further down the road.
