Reading it might help:

Quote:
We live at a time of shifting power and influence
in the world. Asia is on the rise, and Brazil too,
probably. Australia will catch on to their coattails,
and Europe may once more be able to position
itself within these countries’ recoveries. The USA
will remain the unquestioned military power and
also an enormous repository of debt and other
problems.

What's interesting to me is that investment companies are now starting to come out to clients with this stuff, which used to be denigrated as tinfoil hat wacko talk by the mainstream press. The Treasury's impending balance of payments crisis has been evident to any onlooker with a layman's accounting knowledge for years. You can't keep spending more while cutting taxes and borrowing indefinitely.

That pie chart with Treasury distribution hasn't changed much over the years. I know that intra-governmental agencies were the largest holders when I started looking a few years ago.

These money managers had to know this day was coming, but they played along with the scheme as well. This article focuses on the potential tax liabilities of non-US citizens, so perhaps it is that liability that leads them to bring up these skeletons.

Yes, the grim truth is gradually sinking in.
