Billw, the whole notion of credit, of borrowing and lending, is soon to blow up in our faces I fear.  The US government has been spending way beyond its means for generations, to the point where it doesn’t even know how to live within its means.  The government is an insatiable borrower, offering ever greater returns, which are illusory.  Eventually the lenders stop lending, for the borrower becomes too risky.  Then what?


Ours is the generation left holding the bag.  Post modern monetary theory is coming, and with it, the brutal realization that debt matters, and size really does matter.
