A default on the global public debt will lead to the withdrawal of gold from the population

The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated an already extremely difficult situation with an exorbitantly inflated global public debt. Today it is already 3,5 times the total size economics all countries and does not intend to stop its growth. However, everything has its limit and, perhaps, the first "black swans" have already flown.

According to experts, by the end of the year the global debt will amount to $ 277 trillion, which is a new historical record. It is simply unrealistic to pay it, and there are not particularly noticeable people willing to do it. By a strange coincidence, the most important debtors are the countries with the highest level of development and life: the USA, Great Britain, the European Union, the Republic of Korea and Japan. The US national debt is the largest in the world, valued at $ 12 trillion as of June 2020, 26, and has now undoubtedly grown even more. London owed £ 21 trillion, or $ 2 trillion as of 2,6 August. The total public debt of all EU countries is 104,4% of total GDP. Against the backdrop of the pandemic, Tokyo and Seoul also worsened their positions.

Against the background of these countries, Russia looks pretty good. Our national debt in relation to GDP is only 12,5%, while it is less than the total accumulated foreign exchange reserves. This stability has its downside: Russia's contribution to world GDP today is at the level of about 3%. We do not belong to the category of rapidly developing countries that siphon money to absorb more and more new markets and sell their products. Moscow is readily lent because of its stability, but Russian bonds are traded at low yields.

Meanwhile, rather dangerous tendencies began to appear. It was believed that the debt bubble would burst in the West, but Chinese companies were the first to give the slack. Against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic and structural changes in the country's energy sector, the state-owned mining company Yongcheng Coal and Electricity Holding Group announced a default on bonds. Following her, Tsinghua Unigroup, a manufacturer of microcircuits and cars, admitted that it was impossible to pay off. Then the Chinese car company Brilliance Auto Group Holdings declared a default on the bonds. Due to the current situation, bonds of Jizhong Energy Resources's and Pingdingshan Tianan Coal Mining's fell in price, which were temporarily unable to place new bonds. On the scale of the Chinese economy, the amounts are small, but the trend is not very good, given that Beijing could not or did not want to timely prevent the announcement of defaults by large companies, including those with state participation.

The problem with debt, wherever it manifests itself, will inevitably eventually spread to the rest of the world. A direct consequence of the fight against them can be the strongest inflation inflation. Some experts predict its growth by 5%, or even 10% as early as next year. Global debt, denominated in dollars, euros, pounds and yen, due to the extreme decline in yield rates, will then begin to decline, depreciating the currency. Some economists even scare the possibility of introducing real "financial repressions", which may consist in "voluntarily-compulsory" purchase of government bonds and the withdrawal of cash gold from the population. If such predictions come true, then the burden of restructuring the world public debt will mainly fall on the shoulders of ordinary people at the expense of their savings.

    "Contribution to world GDP" should be divided into services, manufacturing and finance.
    Otherwise, the countries of "dog hairdressers" and "masters of intimate haircuts" become on a par with countries producing essential goods, science-intensive goods, goods that ensure the functioning of the economy (energy carriers).
    And this is not right.

      Decree of the President of the United States of 05.04.1933/100/20. left US citizens the right to own gold coins and bars worth up to $ 35. Ornaments, it seems, were not deprived of anyone, but wearing them was considered unpatriotic. For this they could be baited at the household level. Gold was also taken from banks. Gold was accepted at a fixed low price. After the gold was seized, the price was raised from $ 1975 to $ 23. The decree was in effect right up to XNUMX. It is believed that they collected only XNUMX% of the gold on hand, which was brought to Fort Knox, specially built for this. No serious repression was used for not surrendering gold. They "forgot" to include in the decree the ingots that the people were smartly trading on the black market.
      In general, those who really had a lot of gold brought it to Swiss banks, because such people knew everything in advance.
      How it will look now is hard to say. Swiss banks no longer keep deposit secrets. Previously, it was possible to buy coins with numismatic value (they were not subject to the decree). How they will do it now is hard to say. But, if Biden is the president of the United States, the population and small banks there will be cleaned with love, Finintern will not miss hanging his debts on ordinary suckers.

It was not possible to organize chaos on a global scale (including because of Putin's policies), so it will have to be organized in the United States. Otherwise, you will have to answer a lot of unpleasant questions. They have no other choice.

              Again, no one argues. It's just that the Fed is in the United States. Therefore, it is in the United States that something must happen that would make it impossible to search not only for documentary traces of financial violations and fraud for 107 years, but also for 8 tons of supposedly existing gold.
              I have a rather relaxed imagination, but if I can easily imagine a simulation of the loss of documents, then, frankly speaking, I find it difficult to simulate the disappearance of 8 tons of gold without a trace.

                  First, the numbers are different.
                  Traces of royal gold are more or less traced. A significant part of it is among the same 8 tons. It's just that Nicholas II has no legal heirs left.
                  But to portray that here it is gold, was under protection in a fucking bunker, there were some riots and after a few days they were gone. All power structures, including the army, must ensure their safety. Someone will have to hang it on.

                      The fact is that the country's leadership will demand from the relevant departments that, according to satellite observation, they find out where the gold went. For, 8 tons is not a weak convoy of trucks or railway transport.
                      Questions will arise: in vain, did we invest taxpayers' money in satellites?
                      Everything will rest on the fact that no one wants to be extreme in this matter.

But for the time being, Finintern is responsible for this gold (yes, non-existent), But with a peaceful transfer, it will be necessary to explain where the gold is, why fraud is allowed. The new authorities will demand reimbursement and compensation, which is unrealistic. And Finintern will be naked and barefoot. They don't want to let this happen! So the question is: how to do it?

    Yeah. The dollar is about to collapse, no one believes anymore, it's time to scare you with a default on the national debt, inflation of 10% and the withdrawal of gold.

    It remains only to look back - do the neighbors have a lot of gold? Maybe they hide in basements?

    And inflation at our Rosstat does not frighten at all. He calculates 4% by default at all prices.

    Accumulation? Too late. Banks as one have reduced the percentage to ridiculous values. Weaning is in progress.

    It is necessary to buy up dollars and euros while it is cheaper. The very thing

    By a strange coincidence, the most important debtors are the countries with the highest level of development and life: the United States, Great Britain, the European Union, the Republic of Korea and Japan.

    To ascribe to a coincidence of circumstances a targeted financial policy of the most advanced and economically developed countries looks like an insult or a complete lack of understanding of the situation.
    The central banks of the leading countries of the world acted deliberately, within the framework of the ideology of quantitative easing - they printed candy wrappers and pumped up the economy with free, interest-free loans. The result is economic growth of about 3% over a decade, not bad.
    Is there an alternative to the quantitative easing program, perhaps, but no one proposed it and thus refused the Nobel Prize in Economics.
    During the time of the planned economy of the USSR, world crises bypassed it, because there was targeted planning in physical terms and two currency levels - one for internal turnover, the other for external payments.
    There was no direct dependence on world crises, but it gave rise to a total deficit, a black market, currency speculation, which ultimately undermined faith in a planned economy, led to a coup, the collapse of the state and the restoration of capitalism when people are sold and bought wholesale and retail as slaves in the old days ...

    This stability has its downside: Russia's contribution to world GDP today is at the level of about 3%.

    Everyone is concerned about their personal financial situation, but the population does not care about the contribution to world GDP.
    What could be the rapid growth under the very recent 10-12%? This suggests that the task was to keep the economy and not let it collapse.
    Even today, loans are free all over the world, but in the Russian Federation?

    The PRC is the locomotive of the world economy has been and remains for the foreseeable future.
    The past congress outlined the main directions of development - double-circuit turnover, rejection of target growth indicators, innovative development, etc.
    The development of the PRC is moving to a qualitatively different level and the coronavirus epidemic gives a good starting head start - everyone has a fall, and in the PRC growth, which foreign policy projects of world importance are also called upon to accelerate - the NShP, RCEP, the Society of Common Destiny
    The problem of the PRC with debts at the municipal level, but this is a technical and solvable problem, does not shake the central party asset of the PRC but is widely advertised in the west - it is necessary to somehow discredit the main strategic enemy of the United States in the eyes of the common man and justify its aggressive actions.

    Interestingly, not so long ago, 14.03.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX, the most pressing question for Sergei was: "Will Trump decide to finish off the Russian economy?"


    Although the most sane commentators believed that it was time for Trump (along with the American economy) to "think about God." And not to destroy the Russian economy.
    And so, come on, it turns out that the economic prospects of Russia do not look so bad compared to the USA.
    But it would be worthwhile to reread the comments to that post more carefully.
    The point is not, in fact, the national debt. The national debt can be stupidly not paid. For example, switch to another currency yourself (at least to the US dollar, according to the decree of D.F. Kennedy, and not the US dollar, as it is now). The current dollar is deflated, but the debts are denominated in it. They should pay off. And who will do what? How much for this fake dollar was built AUG and other good? Try it, demand payment of debts in normal currency or gold!
    It is sad that there is an internal debt, many times greater than an external one. For example, the US social security system is based on dollar treasuries. At a zero rate, it will collapse and unrestrained emission will not save for a long time. Black bums, whose lives, as you know, matter, will be without benefits, free iPhones and other miscellaneous free things. And what will happen then? Although, recently, pension funds in the United States have grown fond of investing in Russian securities, but this is a drop in the ocean.
    And the inflow of revenues to the budget will also be reduced. Not only in the United States, where a huge segment of the population will be left without work, tied to servicing unnecessary financial transactions. All countries will suffer. having a large trade turnover with the USA. The United States will seek to minimize (ideally zero) the trade deficit. That is, Germany, for example (or China), will either have to buy more from the United States or sell less from the United States. And there is nothing to buy from the USA. What does this highly developed country, a role model for gas stations like Russia, offer China? And the USA offers LNG (at uncompetitive prices), light oil, soybeans, round timber and so on. And China (and Germany and other trading partners) must take money somewhere in order to buy it from the United States. Where to get them? And this is not a rhetorical question.
    As a result, the US will have nothing to feed its black loafers, Germany (and conscious EU countries) - its black loafers. In recent years, China has channeled 25% of its GDP to stimulate domestic demand (in simple terms, just like the United States inflated the bubble of consumer loans), and took money from the trade surplus. And where will he get this money now? And the Chinese are used to a certain standard of living, because you get used to good things quickly. And loans must be given. And the work will not.
    So, although Sergei did not indicate China as a country with a problem economy, it is this economy that will do no worse than the American one.
    Yes, China has no debt. On the contrary, the United States owes China. But, to promise does not mean to marry, who said that China will receive these debts? And the real losses due to the showdown with the trade balance will not go anywhere.
