We Are Now In The “Last Innings” Of The End Game
The Western world is still faced with increasing debt.  The mainstream media has been focused on the fact that there was a very small decline in the budget deficit, but if you look back in history it took the United States 192 years to rack-up $1 trillion of debt.  Then, the next $1 trillion of debt took only 30 years.  Astonishingly, now we are going through $1 trillion each year.

Right now China has somewhere on the order of $1.2 trillion, and has been diversifying away from those dollar reserves into everything from skyscrapers, to companies, to gold.  The Chinese will continue to do that, but, meanwhile, because of the slowdown of international investors buying dollars, ironically the Fed has had to print dollars in order to buy dollars (laughter ensues).  That, too, is unsustainable.
