In breaking news...

After crossing the 15 trillion dollar debt mark, Jesus Christ downgrades America from 'Christian Nation' to 'Debtor Nation' and warns us if we don't get our act together we will be further downgraded to 'Failed Nation'.

Vaya con Dios.

Hhha, the best Rorschach , the one that has everyone seeing blots the same way is.....

Everyone sees the blot on fiat-cotton as Munny!

Mmm.... Excellent information, but some conclusions are sketchy. This guy is still out to make a buck with this report, so I think he certainly has his rose-colored glasses on for this presentation.

After so many years people are fed up with green FRNs. Tastes change, it's time for a new color. I vote for gold/silver.

What I'm looking forward to is watching China shit the bed.

Now that's gonna be a lot of fun.

Talk about event horizon.

I truly can't wait.

It's simple... Push the 'Potential' lever from 'below potential' to 'above potential'... Problem solved!

Now let's see... Where is that potential lever?

can someone explain the phrase 'risk on/risk off"?

"can someone explain the phrase 'risk on/risk off"?"


This information is for Eyes Only if you have a top secret clearance with crypto attachment...

Or, you can google it... in which case you will get 62,200,000 results.

I believe you were looking for THIS.

I get 511,000,000.

Hey C,

Is that anything like 'do-nothing'?

you know I'm stuck on that as an action plan, right?

Thanks Tyler! I can't wait to look at your post in detail (once I'm rested LOL!)

look at #47. Redemption for public debt by end-2012 amounts to a total of €1’049 bn !

reading this chart you'd assume that countries that in need to re-financed debt are : France/italy/spain/ireland/etc

WHAT ABOUT GREAT BRITAN,? WHaT ABOUT JAPAN? WHaT ABOUT USA - 800 lbs monkey in the room?

well if authors would out chart correctly than we would find out that refinance need of USA or JAPANA bigger than sum of all countries in EUROPE. got that.. ?

USA run 1.5 trln deficit+ 15 trl of debt w/ avg duraction 5-6 years,
so EACH AND EVERY YEAR USA NEED TO REFIANNCE/ISSUE NEW DEBT ABOUT 4-5 TRLN... well its 10 times more than whole bad defaulted italy..

good luck to idiots printing/READING research junk

From what I read above, I began to understand why there is so much fear of regional currencies.

Why not just borrow enough money to buy the necessary gold and silver and deduct all the debt everyone is holding by paying off the creditors and handing the bill to the debtors to pay off over the rest their corporate lives? Of course, individuals would have the first $250,000 of debt forgiven so as to play out one of Obama's promises in a reverse manner.

Anyway, the gold and silver would soon begin to move around and before long we would have real money in circulation again------

I'll leave it here as it is with the hope that you and others much more learned than this oldman will pick it apart and maybe I'll learn something useful.

thanks    om

Hello- Where's the chart for the non performing assets?

michael_engineer's picture

In light of all those charts and data, this now might make more sense to some of you :


Peak Everything's picture

Anyone who tries to explain or predict the economy without analyzing net energy availability is an idiot.

$1 US (1990) = 9.7 mW is all you need to know to understand everything.

Seer's picture

Looks like a couple people have tried (based on two down arrows).  People just don't get it... cognitive dissonance.

Peak Everything's picture

Yes, intuition would suggest mW-hr. However Garrett shows wealth = mW. Quite profound with big implications. It will make sense after you study it a bit.

Schmoo's picture

interesting idea - thanks for the link

Question: if energy growth rate is 1.8%/yr, and global population growth (per Wiki) is 1.1%/yr, does the hypothesis suggest the true global economic growth rate is 0.7%/yr? (normalizing to population)

Peak Everything's picture

If net energy consumption is growing faster than population then average wealth per person is increasing. This of course says nothing about the distribution of wealth which as we know is shifting from developed countries to developing countries.

Note the word "net". It's important to net out any energy used to obtain energy. If we use a million barrels of oil to get a million barrels of oil then our wealth is zero.

Archduke's picture

part of this mirros an original contrarian thermodynamic energy view opined a number of years ago:

The Bottomless Well: the twilight of fuel, the virtue of waste, and why we will never run out of energy


however they introduce an entropy concept of energy quality instead of quantity, ie energy order,

and have a far more optimistic prognosis for the future.  they argue for example, that increased

consumption creates wealth (and begets more consumption).


TheAkashicRecord's picture

//why energy supply is infinite.//  

So it says on that site.

Please explain to me, within the context of thermodynamics, how this is possible.

Archduke's picture

yes, as a contrarian book it's full of captcha trolls, but if you read the book it's quite sound and profound.

it argues that energy scarcity of one lower form drives us to discover new forms or higher order energy.

that we'll either get better at extraction, or move on to new sources of power. that the nature of the

source or fuel is irrelevant, only its energy density and order in terms of entropy are what matter.

Biggest Oil Find in Decades Becomes $39B Caution

The greatest minds and the greatest array of technology's best rearrangement of matter (technology's ONLY capability is in providing us with the IDEAS on how to rearrange matter/physical resources)...

EROEI - of course, those bilking tax dollars (subsidies, direct OR indirect [military]) out of us don't want us to view things in such perspective, no more so than the banksters want us looking at their second set of books.

He shouldn't use the terms European Authorities and Heavy Artillery in the same sentence. I hope to be suffering from a severe case if kurtosis. I'm pretty sure restructuration is not a word, but then what kind of doofus actually reads this stuff?
