Today David Stockman, the man President Ronald Reagan called upon along with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts to help save the United States from disaster in 1981, spoke with King World News about what is on the other side of the coming financial destruction. Stockman warned that the situation is now becoming even more desperate.
Central Banks Unleash Tidal Wave Of Credit
David Stockman: “In the world that we are in today, the post-Bretton Woods, post-Gold Standard, post-Camp David of 1971, we have unleashed the central banks to create the most fantastic tidal wave of new credit that the world has ever seen.
$200 Trillion Of Debt
As we learned not that long ago from the McKinsey study, there is roughly $200 trillion of debt now outstanding, compared to only $80 trillion at the turn of the century. So just imagine that kind of expansion (of debt). That funded massive capacities to mine iron-ore, to deliver hydrocarbons to ship bulk materials, to manufacture everything from A – Z, and that is all now in place. It’s called ‘malinvestment,’ or ‘distortion of the capital cycle.’
Situation Becoming Even More Desperate
But with all of that capacity out there, people who are deeply in debt, including and especially in China, are going to be desperate to keep the doors open and to keep the creditors at bay and to stave off bankruptcy. And so they will produce for whatever they can get in the market in terms of a selling price, even if it exceeds their out-of-pocket cash costs today, regardless of how much was invested in prior times.
Powerful Deflationary Cycle
That’s the deflationary cycle and it’s powerful. It will eventually burn itself out, but I’m not even beginning to contemplate what’s on the other side because we need to get through the global deflationary cycle first. It has a long way to go and it’s just getting started.” David Stockman's remarkable audio interview has now been released and you can listen to it by CLICKING HERE OR ON THE IMAGE BELOW.
