A Glimpse into the Coming Collapse

The value in projecting what the collapsing governments may do to their citizens is not merely an exercise in speculation. If the reader concludes that there is a significant percentage of likelihood that any of the above are coming his way, he would be well-advised to assess whether they are developments that he feels he could live with. If not, he might wish to assess how much time he has before these events become a reality and what he may do to sidestep their impact on him.

Western Governments Try Everything To Preserve Their Fiat Currencies

Western Governments Try Everything To Preserve Their Fiat Currencies

While major Western banks have been found guilty of one transgression after another, I don’t believe that any Chinese bank participated in these devious schemes.
