Here is a joint statement from Lagarde and Powell at a secret G7 meeting with all Leaders and Finance Chiefs of the seven nations attending as well as the IMF and BIS:
“The financial system has been on the verge of collapse since September 2019 when we started Repos and QE. And since then it has only got worse. The coronavirus hit us at a time when the banking system was almost down and out.
We had enough problems saving the banks. But now we must save big corporations, small companies, individuals, local municipalities and states, the Federal State and this on top of rescuing a financial system which is deteriorating by the day. The whole system is leaking like a sieve and we are struggling to keep it all afloat.
Fortunately we have printing presses and that helps to keep it all going but only just. Our big fear is that the market will realise that all the money we are printing is worthless. And it is of course but we can’t tell anyone. But if the world wakes up to this one day soon, the financial system could implode in a matter of days. And we would be totally helpless to stop it………”
EXPONENTIALLY WORSE THAN 2008 – A BLACK HOLE
And this dear readers is where the world stands today. On the verge of an implosion of the whole financial system. Just a small crack could push the whole system into a black hole.
All that is needed is a severe second wave of CV-19 or a bank collapse, triggering an implosion of debt markets and the whole system.
Yes, we know the world was in a similar situation in 2008 but with over $100 trillion more in debt and who knows how many additional $100s of trillions of derivatives plus a world economy disintegrating – it is now exponentially worse from a risk point of view.
We must also remember that bad debts in the financial system are going up by the minute with most borrowers under severe financial pressure. Just look at the chart below how bad debts follow unemployment. The banks haven’t reported this yet but we will see it in the next couple of quarters.
