Dominos will fall after the Troika killed off Greece

Egon von Greyerz: “The ECB and the EU are now in control of the Greek economy, banks and national assets. There is absolutely no chance for Greece to recover as part of the EU. And what happened to Greece will be the model for the next set of weak countries such as Italy, Spain, Portugal and France. They will all fall as dominos before too long….

The Elite is leading Greece and the World to Perdition

The Elite is leading Greece and the World to Perdition

In my King World News interview published on July 12, I stated that the Troika and the US will do whatever they can to keep Greece in the EU. To let Greece leave would be the final nail in the European Union coffin. That would start the dominoes of Italy, Spain, Portugal and France falling as well as the European banks. And it would prove that this artificial political and monetary union is a total travesty which was doomed to fail even before it was created.

The proposal now being put to the Greek government and parliament is a lot worse than the one which was voted down by the Greek people last Sunday. The package on offer involves another €85 billion of loans in addition to the existing €320bn. On top of that there will be short term bridge financing of €12bn plus potentially another €35bn for job creation. So the insolvent Troika is raising another €135bn to lend to a bankrupt nation that cannot even afford to pay the interest on the debt. This is really the bankrupt leading the bankrupt to perdition.

Greece update – Europe in Catch 22

King World News weekly – July 8, 2015
Massive Contagion Will Lead To A Worldwide Financial Catastrophe

Egon von Greyerz: “We are facing colossal problems in the world today. The U.S. is bankrupt, with debts having increased each year since the early 1960s. And in this century debts have gone up exponentially. The U.S. has also had a trade deficit every year since the 1970s. So this is a country that’s been living above its means for half a century.

Will the EU mess trigger a Gold & Silver Derivatives Default?

King World News weekly – July 6, 2015

Egon von Greyerz: “The derivative position of US banks for Q1 2015 has just been published and the reading is more frightening than ever. The top 5 US banks have total a derivative exposure of $247 trillion. This is 3.5 times world GDP. Total derivatives for all banks in the world are just over $600 trillion. But these figures are less than half of the real exposure. A few years ago the BIS in Basel changed the basis of valuation of derivatives to “Value to Maturity”…

Egon von Greyerz: “Eric, the die is cast and the world is now on its way to a secular decline of a magnitude never seen in history. No country and no central bank can stop the inevitable implosion of all the asset and debt bubbles in the last 100 year. The Fed, which is the central bank that should take the leadership in solving the problem, is the party that has actually caused the mess. The Fed does not have a clue what to do. They believe so much in their own rhetoric and all the phony and manipulated economic figures that they don’t even recognize the economic decline that is happening in front of their eyes…..

Governments create illusions of prosperity

King World News weekly – June 5 , 2015

Egon von Greyerz: “When the financial bubbles in the world implode, normal people will have no safety net. Many people will not have a job and there will be no Social Security and no pensions. The reason for this is that instead of having the normal process of booms and busts, which is a self-regulating process, governments and central banks have created false cycles and phony markets through financial repression…

When will the world’s paper wealth bubble burst?

Categories: All publications, King World News

King World News weekly – May 29, 2015

Egon von Greyerz: “Eric, I don’t think the general public has any understanding of what is happening in the world today and the incredible risks we are seeing. Since 2008, world debt is up over 40 percent and so now the world has unsustainable debt levels of over $200 trillion. So in the last 100 years global debt has gone from virtually zero to $200 trillion. This has had the effect of creating a false standard of living and affluence, which is built on debt and consumption. People think the illusion is real but it isn’t. It’s really a massive bubble and it’s coming to an end.
