“Everything is out of whack. We can’t be the policeman to the world and provide a safety net for all citizens if we don’t have the tax rates or the income to the government that supports all that. It seems like common sense, and it should be common sense. But something happens when you take it from a discussion that you and I might have to the political level, which is often just driven by emotion and public speech. Somehow the desire, the continued promising that the government can solve all problems, meets with jubilation and boasts. And people want to just keep going, and they never want to actually accept that at some point the unsustainable has to end. I mean, that’s the nature of the world.
It gets frustrating to think that we’re at a point where politicians are really going to have to work together to come up with solutions that are going to be unpopular to anyone – and I struggle to think that we’re even capable of putting together a set of solutions that will work. It might be too late.”

Strong words from a man who has been writing for over ten years about how our debt-inebriated economy will eventually collapse upon itself – but is still shocked and saddened to see his predictions play out in reality. He sees the global economy to be at a point of massive destructive transformation – but full of opportunity for informed investors, and, ulitmately, for the system that succeeds it.
