Central Planning, Lying Career Politicians, and the US Ponzi Debt Scheme

The political class in Washington has failed to reach a deal. They are effectively playing a game of chicken with the markets to see who blinks first. As usual, there are plenty of lies and spin swirling around this situation.

The US Treasury has stated it will run out of cash on October 17.

This in of itself is a strange claim as technically we hit the debt limit back in May and have been resorting to “extraordinary” measures since then. I don’t recall anyone in at the Treasury talking about the importance of the “debt ceiling” then, do you?

Secondly, the Government has effectively been running a Ponzi scheme with our debt for the greater part of 20 years. Over $5.7 trillion of our debt is owned by the Federal Government, ($2.1 trillion is owned by the Fed, $2.6 trillion is owned by Social Security, and over $1 trillion is owned by various Federal Retirement entities).

Indeed, the single largest owner of US debt is not in fact China, but our own Government. We’ve been running this kind of scheme for over 20 years.

Now this is not to say that a debt ceiling breach or a possible default on some payments are NOT huge issues. What I am saying is that the US Government can shuffle money around just as it has for the last 20 years to insure that we meet our debt obligations.

So the debt ceiling “we’re going to run out of money and the world ends” talk is not accurate. What is accurate is that playing games with your debt limits impacts other investors’ psychologies. And THAT is the real issue here.

The Fed has already screwed this up royally. Indeed, by engaging in QE, the Fed alters the very structure of risk in the financial system. Traders on Wall Street, knowing full well that the Fed would be soaking up Treasuries, rushed into new debt issuance with the intention of flipping over these assets to the Fed in the near future.

This became a self-fulfilling prophecy as the “front-running the Fed” trade became a dominant theme for Wall Street. By piling into bonds, traders forced prices higher and yields lower: precisely what the Fed wanted.

It is critical to note that a significant percentage of these investors had no interest in actually owning US debt as an asset class in the long run. They were simply looking for an easy trade that made money. As a result, interest rates were driven even lower by the “investment herd”.

We saw this when Treasuries dived soon after the Fed hinted at “tapering” QE. At that time, traders realized the “front-run” the Fed trade may be ending and dumped Treasuries. Rates rose, mortgage rates rose, mortgage applications collapsed, and the slew of other problems surfaced.

My point with all of this is that Central planning is always a disaster. We are now watching another Central-Planning debacle in the form of the debt ceiling fiasco. These folks got us into this mess, expecting them to get us out of it is foolish.

With that in mind, I’ve already urged my Private Wealth 
Advisory clients to start prepping. We’ve opened six 
targeted trades to profit from the US’s debt crisis.

We’ve also taken care to prepare our finances and our 
loved ones for what’s coming, by following simple 
easy to follow steps concerning our savings, portfolios, 
and personal security via my Protect Your Family, 
Protect Your Savings & Protect Your Portfolio 
reports.

I’ve helped thousands of investors manage their risk 
and profit from market collapses. During the EU 
Crisis we locked in 72 straight winning trades 
and not one loser, including gains of 18%, 28% and 
more.

In fact, we’re currently on another winning streak 
having locked in FOURTEEN winning trades in the last 
two months, including gains of 10%, 11%, 21% and 25%.

All for the small price of $299: the annual cost 
of a Private Wealth Advisory subscription. 

To take action to prepare for what’s coming… and 
start taking steps to insure that when this debt crisis 
bursts you don’t lose your shirt.
