Riots & Mobs Coming to a Town Near You


We’ve been quite clear about what we think is going to hap­pen in the com­ing months and years. We expect either a US Gov­ern­ment and Euro­zone default, lead­ing to seri­ous reper­cus­sions in the west­ern world as enti­tle­ments, pen­sions and banks all col­lapse leav­ing tens of mil­lions des­ti­tute. Or, the US dol­lar to be hyper­in­flated to worth­less­ness, bring­ing down every other fiat cur­rency in the world and caus­ing mas­sive prob­lems such as star­va­tion as mod­ern sys­tems of trade and trans­port break down.

In either case there will also be a deep, seri­ous depres­sion of a mag­ni­tude much worse than in the 1930s.

Symp­toms of this even­tu­al­ity are already being seen around the world. Food and com­mod­ity prices are sky­rock­et­ing led by fiat cur­rency infla­tion around the globe lead­ing to food riots and short­ages. In the US there are daily reports of thieves steal­ing cop­per wire from power sub­sta­tions, power poles and church air con­di­tion­ers as the price of cop­per and all com­modi­ties soar due to the mon­e­tary infla­tion caused by the likes of Ben Bernanke.
