NI: US will not cope with main enemy by 2022 year

65
American Journal The National Interest published with an article that is devoted to the "main enemy of the United States." Many would have thought that the publication would talk about Russia, China, the DPRK or Iran, but in this case, the journalists of this edition were much more objective and called things by their proper names. The NI noted that the main enemy of the United States is not Russia or China, but a huge cumulative debt.


At this moment, the total US debt counter shows the value of 21,165 trillion dollars. At the same time a few months ago, the US government declared that their task was to prevent the debt from overcoming the psychological mark in 20 trillions.



The article by Jörgen Möller states that the United States is close to a technical default. At the same time, international rating organizations in fact traditionally attribute the highest statuses to the US economy and its individual sectors.

It was noted that by 2022, the problem of debt will not be solved, and by 2028, the traditional approach to reducing the debt level will be completely excluded.

At the moment, as stated, there are two ways to solve the problem, but both of them will be blocked in Congress. It is about raising taxes or cutting costs. In other words, the United States wants to continue the practice: "get more and pay at the expense of others."

The publication notes that Washington is faced with the need to restructure debt, for which it will have to negotiate with Chinese and Japanese lenders, who have more than 2 trillion dollars in US debt for two. And if with Japan, when potential agreements are reached, problems are unlikely to arise because of the complete vassalage of Tokyo in relation to Washington, then negotiations with China may come to a standstill against the backdrop of the trade war that Trump actually declared the PRC.

          And why be surprised, Paul, the way it is (he’s such an arctic fox - inconspicuous). That's why Trump (as a businessman in his soul) and storms, and throws from one extreme to another. The clock is ticking, and the debts are growing. In parliament, there has already been talk about turning to China and Japan on the “upgrade” of American debts to these countries (what a humiliation it is). That shakes the head of the White House.

      He always said that it’s not enough just to be able to write words, you also need to understand their meaning:
      Default is a denial of payments on debtif quite simple.

        The question then is who will lend, so that the states can service their debt. Technical default is understood by the fact that there is no one to invest so much in the US national debt. The states themselves will not invest in their debt or will, then what remains for the states, but it remains for them to look at a printing press that does not give a cent to the economy. In general, the machine will print money for other economies that for some reason will need a dollar, and the Americans will lick their lips and furiously look for enemies .... lol hi

          When there was a crisis of 2008, they easily printed something for themselves in the region of a trillion new bucks. They don’t have to print anything at least Google bucks, the goal is not that, but that the debt continued to grow.

            And who by your analogy will do this? Countries cannot indefinitely borrow, small yes, but large will not. And this is not a debt, but the purchase of American currency for trade or other operations. And this is done not only with the dollar, it is done with all currencies, it all depends on the deficit in trade or the purchase of technology and production. So everyone can print, but the turnover of the domestic market does not allow printing endlessly, inflation. Therefore, Americans raise prices and inflate bubbles that burst, which leads to problems in the market, in this muddy water, the states catch fish.

              And this is a completely different question, the point is that those who talk about too much debt do not understand the very basics.
              And about what to do - yes, there is inflation, there is an export of chaos, the imposition of services. During all the crises, the USA only got better, and all the rest lost money. Therefore, the United States is profitable a big debt, all the talk about its reduction for - they are in public.

                Yes, they will not reduce debt, it's like shooting right in the head. By this duty they seduce other countries to live not in permanent representations, they say you can do this, do so too and we will help you. But they themselves know that this alignment will collapse all world trade or there will be great chaos. Such things will push us to look for stability, and just then, as the devil comes out of the snuffbox, the states reappear, we say the most stable, go under our sovereignty and don’t worry about your future, trust us, etc. yes

      Learn the economy. This debt is not the United States, this is the debt of the world - the United States. This debt is nominated in pieces of paper that the United States themselves print. Theoretically, they can pay off all debt - by changing only one digit in the computer. The only reason why they do not do this is that they are interested in this debt. They need to be borrowed from them. It’s very profitable: you are the world, and the world is nishtyaki.

        No, this is the debt of the us state, which transfers its debt obligations to the world market and other countries that become debtors. This is a problem for the states, countries can no longer borrow so much, because their economies do not have time to grow so fast, you can’t increase production by credit. Therefore, the markets are overflowed with currency more than raw materials, this paper bubble will burst, and the market for production and consumption does not keep pace with the printing presses of countries. So it will burst and what consequences no one can calculate so far, but smart economies protect themselves and invest in hard currency, gold, diamonds and other valuable raw materials. hi

        Do not be mistaken ... Capital does not give a loan for beautiful eyes, only on bail, and then only on the one that is interesting to capital. And this means that all countries are pledged, and some are pledged, and the United States has long been pledged and re-pledged with giblets, and its vaunted democracy and freedom is nothing more than a fig leaf with which it covers the shame of its total slavery to banking capital, mostly Jewish.

          And you took a mortgage, for example, also small: 100,000 euros.
          Roughly speaking, your debt is twice as much as your GDP.

        You can borrow for development if the country is confident in development, but the question is that some are gaining more than growing and this is a danger just for stable economies, Israel is one of them.

    I put to war with China. America is essentially a colonial power, right?
    The essence of the basis of her life is survival at the expense of resources from the colonies.
    Everything that could be sucked from the resources of the former USSR has already been sucked and digested.
    Well, either spin and / or the formation of new colonies, or war.
    And of those with whom it is worth fighting Iran and China.
    So you just have to wait a bit ...

      What resources? States - in the first places in the world in oil and gas production.
      They have in bulk their resources.

    Yeah, a very relevant statement, by the way. If military power is added to the Chinese and Indian economies, then in the end they will ask the United States where our money is. And since this will happen literally in the next 10 years, we should think about debts now, while all aircraft carriers are on the move.

    The United States has no problems with sovereign debt - when China and other major holders of US government bonds demand their repurchase, the United States will simply default and all creditors will wipe away, since they have no word at all to get out the debt.

    After the default, the dollar will fall by an order of magnitude, the American workforce and the goods it produces will become cheaper, and the United States will again become an exporter of industrial products, not patents, know-how and other intangible assets.

    Another thing is that the US military budget will also be deflated by an order of magnitude, since the last quarter of a century it has been financed exclusively by foreign countries through the purchase of US government bonds.

    And then the real multipolar world will come bully

      You lie directly and do not blink - there are always big problems with big money, and even more so with debts. And, in this case, it is absolutely clear which problems. If it doesn’t reach you, look again at the number.
      In total, there is a lot of text and clarity - zero, stop in general cormorant, "expert".

    At the same time, several months ago, US authorities stated that their task was to prevent debt from overcoming the psychological mark of 20 trillion.
    The next mark is 25, then 30, then 50 and then? And then in any way will be financial armageddets.

    It’s very profitable: you are the world, and the world is nishtyaki.

    These are the concepts of Mavrodi. How he finished, everyone knows. History repeats itself. I am sure that it will end with another confiscation of gold from the population, as during the Great Depression.
    You can live on credit. You can live a long time. But you can’t live forever in debt, no matter how you would like to. This is an axiom.

    You are strong in complex reasoning, but not strong in a simple economy
    Let's say you earn modestly ... well, 4000 euros per month. Multiply by 12 = 48,000 per year.
    This is your GDP. So far, okay?
    And you took a mortgage, for example, also small: 100,000 euros.
    Roughly speaking, your debt is twice as much as your GDP.
    Fearfully? Not really. If the payout per month and the percentage is small, and your salary is growing, for example, by 5% per year - you can live.
    So with the states - available? wink


    The accessible alphabet of the Jewish economy ... "Don’t give your brother growth silver or bread or anything else that you can give growth, give a foreigner growth, but don’t give your brother growth” (Deuteronomy 23: nineteen).

    "... and you will lend to many nations, but you yourself will not borrow [and you will dominate many nations, but they will not dominate you.]" (Deuteronomy 28: 12)

    "Then the sons of the foreigners will build your walls, and their kings - to serve you ... the people and kingdoms who do not want to serve you - will perish, and such peoples will be completely destroyed." (Isaiah 60: 10-12).

    This situation will not be resolved by the USA in debt, except for a war, possibly a world war. But the USA will no longer be, as well as some EU
