If you don't think we are headed for a dollar crisis ask yourself this question. How does the Fed stop the dollar from falling? It must sell all the bonds it's been buying, allow interest rates to surge, and force the government to slash spending. Do you think this will happen?

Couple more Thai connections with #1MDB : 1) Thailand’s Country Group bought bonds arranged by Low in 2009. Malaysian government says those bonds were sold cheaply, ie the buyers could make big money. In 2015, when scheme collapsed, Low was worried these details would come out.

1/ LIQUIDITY v. SOLVENCY At market level: government bond buying can solve LIQUIDITY (by buying bonds + propping up prices with no bids) At company level: they cannot solve SOLVENCY (when (growing) debts exceed ability to pay them)...

All Swiss sovereign bonds now have negative yields, out to 50 years! So Swiss government could mount massive 50-year infrastructure programme with no cost of capital. Indeed, it would make small profit!

Question: Barry Bonds got convicted of lying to the government. But who gets convicted when the government lies to us?

But there is. The MoneyTree Policy Committee has magicked up £445bn of new money to buy government and company bonds!
