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”…

Update Greece and Europe to be posted soon.

Gold will reign in splendour as asset bubbles burst

King World News weekly – June 26, 2015

Egon von Greyerz: “Greece is a country that is an example of not just the problems in the EU and the eurozone but also the problems in the world. Since 2006 Greek debt is up by 50 percent to 320 billion euros. During the same time, Greek GDP has fallen by over 20 percent. Greece should never have joined the EU and certainly not the eurozone with the euro as their currency. Historically, culturally, economically, Greece does not belong in the same group as say Germany. The result of this unhappy union has created a financial wreck that’s been kept from sinking by the troika

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…..

A global bust will be very destructive

King World News weekly – June 13 , 2015

Egon von Greyerz: “Between 1997 and 2007 Gordon Brown was Chancellor of the Exchequer (Treasury Secretary) in the United Kingdom. When he presented his annual budget in parliament he would brag that through his policies he had abolished the normal cycles of booms and busts. But then in 2007 he had the misfortune to become prime minister just as the great financial crisis started, and his magic of creating a consistent boom suddenly vanished……

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.

King World News weekly – May 21, 2015

Egon von Greyerz: “Investors worldwide are sitting with assets inside of giant financial bubbles. We are talking about a $250 trillion bubble in stocks, bonds and property. The size of the bubble has increased from $150 trillion to $250 trillion in the last 15 years. That’s a staggering 66 percent increase. We talked last week about how the $100 trillion bond bubble will soon start to implode. We’ve seen bond yields start to surge in the last few weeks, led by the German 10-year….

King World News weekly – 14 May, 2015

Egon von Greyerz “Eric, we are now starting to see the signs that will trigger an end to the most massive financial bubble in the history of the world. Gold and silver move in anticipation of economic events, and some of the indicators I look at are flashing major warning signals. Take, for example, M2, which illustrates the money supply in the U.S. and also the velocity of money. The money velocity is continuing….
