Foreign Demand for US Treasurys Takes Record Fall 

What happens of the world does not accept our currency anymore?

International Demand for US Financial Assets Slowed 

China Cuts Holdings in US Treasuries 

We are running about a $2 Trillion dollar deficit including state and local....twice the Federal Tax receipts......the only reason Congress and other Federal Workers get paid is because America has access to credit......what happens if we don't?

Without a doubt, we are on the edge of potentially the most convulsive period in American....and world history.

Clearly there is a continuing shutting down of the Industrial Age businesses as we move into the Digital Age.....couple that with a massive deleveraging and we have lot of change ahead.

Russia joins the America bashing party.....

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin played down Greece's economic woes on Tuesday, telling his visiting Greek counterpart that the United States were no better than Greece in handling its debt and fiscal deficit.

“As we all know, the global economic crisis started neither in Greece, nor in Russia, nor in Europe,” Mr. Putin told a news conference after talks with George Papandreou. “It came to us from across the ocean,” he said in a clear reference to the United States.

“There (in the U.S.) we can see similar problems - massive external debt, budget deficit,” Mr. Putin added, suggesting Russia and Greece should concentrate on the “real economy” to weather the economic crisis.
