well, at least until they politely ask to settle the U.S. debt in gold - take gold to 15,000,000,000,000 an ounce and give them an ounce.
The collapse of China. The collapse of Europe. The collapse of the US. The depletion of energy. Gold and silver to $5k.
Doomsday economics certainly is the fad these days.

Nah, it's just back to reality. With accrued interest.
This sure makes me glad to be in America, where despite our problems we have far more educated economic advisers and government officials. People from all over the world compete for the privelage of studying at our Ivy League schools and consequently America has some of the smartest and most competent government officials in the world, many of whom have prior experience in top financial institutions. This is why America is not subject to the gross neglect demonstrated by Chinese economic planners with inferior educations and backward mentalitlies.
MDB...You're getting close to perfecting pure sarcasm...Or Newspeak...It's a wonder the PTB hasn't gobbled you up yet...
China will liquidate its dollar holdings to bail itself out again.
Welcome to the Great Treasury Crash of 2011/12/13.
Such a trade war will inevitably lead to a actual military war.
At such time China will win and take Taiwan for free.
ehhh fuck china, how in the fuck are they gonna get half a billion soldiers across the Pacific when the batteries die halfway to Hawaii. molon labe
When the host dies, the parasite follows.
ROTFL...with what military?
They have no navy, a pathetic army, and no air force worth a shit. they couldn't mount an amphibious invasion of Hong Kong, much less Taiwan
C'mon dude...you are fast-becoming an internet celebrity. How many people get songs - especially this catchy - dedicated to them? Own it!
That is awsome, Trav has his very own song.
Looks like Fuu put it together.
Well that was different.... but he has missed some of Trav's best junked lines.....
"they have no navy..."
The Deleuzian - You of course realize that MDB is an auto-response computer system don't you?
Even if sHe is in human form IT'S automated.
MDB either works for the Obama Administration or the NYT. His delusions are the talking points of both entities.
Be careful what you are glad for.
If real shit hits the fan in China, the people will overthrow the government and hang all the politicians. This prospect scares the craps out of the Chinese elite and they are bailing. They know they are hopelessly outnumbered. They know that the people have absolutely no trust in them. Plus, ordinary people don't have much to lose because there is no welfare. The so called "retirement funds" are meager and have been already wiped out by inflation of the past 2 years
The same thing wouldn't happen in America. The people here are too docile and brainwashed, too dependent on paycheck, government and welfare. Economic collapse will result in a Fascist state. And if you frequent zerohedge, you are the perfect candidate for concentration camps.
I'd choose anarchy over fascism on any given day.
EagleFalcon...I think you're taking it all too hard...If anything...Zher's would be a think tank
ZHer's a "think tank"??? *snort*
given the auto-bot angry responses to Million$'s obvious troll posts virtually every thread, it's more like monkeys flinging shit around the cage than thinking - some threads do differ, but in the main, ZHer's are here to entertain themselves in a small small circle. . .
most spend more time trawling the interwebs for the perfect titty-pic-avatar than pondering the state of the world.
@eaglefalcon-Best post in quite a while...I'm glad you chose to incorporate FEMA at the end.
EF, when everything goes bankrupt and those welfare/retirement promises vanish into thin air. The people will quickly go into a rage since they then have nothing left but delusions and poverty. Revolution will then be in the streets.
Vamp-----the peasantry will be killed off slowely and quietly....Or otherwise quickly and thoroughly
Man made pandemic targeted at 50+ population, solves most of their "problems". WW3 would be messy and take out many of the younger "slave" age worker bees. TPTB in China will try to direct attention away from themselves and at a foreign bad guy (ours do the same thing all the time). Obama is getting his foot in the door with Marine base in Australia, so who knows? Maybe China will set up shop in Cuba?
Who said: When people with nothing have nothing left to lose, they lose it?
Gerald Celente says that. Then he lost his (paper) gold to Corzine / MF and now he's losing it. Ironic...
who doesn't?? it's repeated that often.
I have to take this as sarcasm. It just can't be real. No one could be so fucking stupid.
I seem to find myself thinking that about most all your comments.
Socratic Dog...MDB is most obviously being uber-sarcastic...Even those Ivy-League shmucks don't believe what they say publically...They're saying exactly what MDB is saying just pleasantly!!!
obviously you have not studied at an Ivy League school, unless spelling is optional.
privelage = privilege.
So far it doesn't seem so. Isuggest that you go all in for allof our sakes for the economy. It certainly would put our minds at ease.
You could shut your pie hole and listen with your ears and not your mouth.
Bingo, dead on. We have delayed and delayed and kicke the can down the road to where the end of the road is 100 feet in front of us. And so we are trying to find some way of extending that road but it won't happen. Everything comes to an end, everything. As he said equilibrium in China is also the same in the rest of the world. Everything must be brought back into equilibrium regardless of how much pain and suffering and countries going under that happen.
as long as it's the 1% suffering, painfully! then, we take back our gold!

Doomsday has been here for last decade. Faux economics is just revealing itself.
tell Japan what a fad their lost decade was....
and you know what US is in world war III right at 4 fronts?
That's 5, and soon Iran will make 6.
Fuck it. You might as well throw Syria in for good measure...
Don't forget Venezuela!
There are Mexicans and Muslims ready and waiting to pour across the borders of Texas, NM, AZ and Cali. Heck, let 'em have CA.
Iraq: bad situation, troop commitment required, pulling out will give rise to a hostile regime
Afghanistan: not so bad, troop commitment required but only in small numbers, occupation is economically viable because of the profit from the poppy fields
Pakistan: no confrontation likely in near future because the chinese swore to defend it
Yemen: already toppled and no troop
Libya: the europeans need oil from there, so it's up to them to come up with the money and troops
It appears that if iraq can stablize, the US can afford quite a few more occupations
bottomlin: they don't send the elite to die on battlefields, they send the plebs. In that regard, the brits have more guts because their elite do go to combat
"the US can afford quite a few more occupations"
"the US can afford quite a few more occupations"
Yep ... they're now in the process of occupying Australia ... and the FEMA camps have already been built ... for "refugees", of course ... not for citizens ... never for citizens.....
We need to occupy Afganistan to keep the Chinese out of the middle east. We'll be there till the middle east is out of oil.
Chinese TV Host Says Regime Nearly Bankrupt
LOL. This Lang Xian ping is FREE LANCE Chinese live in HK!! He has NEVER been a Mainland Chineses resident! How does he know ANYTHING about Mainland China? Just by reading the stupid Western media about China? LOL
He has a huge mouth about everything! A lot of Misinformation from him! Whoever believe his judgement will get SCREWED!
Nice to live in Canada. Well except it's totally frekin' dumping snow on me.
I thought that was the new new China given how many Chinese live there.
See we don't have to worry about being attacked by the Chinese because they will be attacking themselves.
I hate to disturb your sleep, but if you took the time to read some Chinese history, you might not feel so safe. China prefers intramural warfare, because if one is on both sides, one can always rack up a "win".
BC = Beijing, China
UBC = University of Beijing China
I spent a few years in Vancouver, Canada. Affectionately called Hong-couver by the locals.
Canada was a great place, but has deteriorated since getting the Harper govt...
