In September, money manager Michael Pento warned, “The massive bubble blown by global central banks is unraveling now.” Look at the upheaval in markets and he was clearly correct. Now, Pento sees, “Deflation, say it again, deflation . . . . We are heading for a deflationary/ inflationary depression. That’s what we have been modeled for. That’s why we went short in September. . . . We covered the short just before Thanksgiving, and we went short again last Monday just before the crash.”
The debt is enormous and unpayable. So, is the world headed for a debt reset and a crash? Pento says, “I think we are . . . and that is exactly where we are headed. Eventually, we are going to completely reset the currency like Germany had to do following WWI . . . but it is going to have to take one more cycle of inflation before we get there. So, right now, we are deflating, and we have been deflating for a while. We are going to have a deflationary panic in the stock market. It’s no longer predicted. It’s happening, and I think it’s going to happen all over the globe. . . . There is $4 trillion in unfunded liabilities in the public pension system. So, you don’t get your money. The stock market goes down. Social Security is bankrupt. Medicare and Medicaid are bankrupt. All of these social programs are bankrupt, and the stock market tanks, and what are they going to do? What are they going to have to do? They are going to have to go to inflation. Inflation is going to be more than what it was last time. . . . They understand when the stock market goes down, consumption and the wealth effect crumble, and the economy is going to falter. So, they are going to have to pursue a radical inflation goal. ”
So, what is going to happen to the price of gold and silver? Pento says, “When they do this and they (the Fed) have to change and go from . . . draining its balance sheet and admit that they have permanently monetized $4.5 trillion of debt, and they will only be able to increase the size of their balance sheet and never be able to drain it and never be able to raise interest rates, gold and silver that has long been suffering . . . are going to rip higher like they have never done before. Gold and silver and the mining shares are going to go like a rocket ship, higher. . . . If I was a poor guy or a rich guy who wanted to preserve his purchasing power, I would be buying physical gold and silver, and mostly gold.”

It is absolutely absurd to pretend that the overlords at the “fed” didn’t know what they were doing. Constructing a monetary bubble out of interlocking and recursive debt-dependency is a mathematical recipe for an “overshoot” on the downside when it deflates, i.e. a recession or in this case a depression. The fed’s shareholders will finish the job they started in the 30’s when the world formally becomes their property.
Greenspan is the genocider in chief, a historical figure of unsurpassed evil. Books will be written about him long after hitler is forgotten. If there are books or people to read them anyway.
“The powers of financial capitalism had [a] far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”
