"Over the next seven years we think the market will have negative returns. The next bust will be unlike any other because the Fed and other central banks around the world have taken on all this leverage that was out there and put it on their balance sheets. We have never had this before. Assets are overpriced generally. They will become cheap again. That's how we will pay for this. It's going to be very painful for investors....
"It's quite likely that the recovery has been slowed down because of the Fed's actions. Go back to the 1980s, and the US had an aggregate debt level of about 1.3 times GDP. Then we had a massive spike over the next two decades to about 3.3 times debt. And GDP over that time has slowed. There isn't any room in that data for the belief that more debt creates growth."
|"The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency: the second is war. Both bring temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists."

creates illusory wealth and buys time, but if it was truly the answer
to a deleveraging cycle, Zimbabwe would be a member of the G10."
– David Rosenberg, Gluskin Sheff, January, 2013
price tag of printing six trillion dollars worth of checks comes in
the form of inflation and devaluation of currencies either relative
to each other, or to commodities in less limitless supply such as oil
|The reality is that
the stock market as an asset class has delivered almost no net return
at all since 1999 [...] One cannot look at the latest secular phase of
no-returns without the context of the spectacular 18% average annual gains
during the secular bull phase from 1980 to 1999. The “market”
is still in the process of mean-reverting the excess outperformance during
that two-decade Reagan-Clinton era run."
– David Rosenberg, Gluskin Sheff, January, 2012
and severity of financial crises has taken an ominous turn for the worse....
we look at the world economy today, we see a wall of risk…and
potential financial catastrophe. We see a large number of virtually
bankrupt major sovereign states (US, UK, Spain, Italy, Greece, Japan
and many more) teetering atop a financial system that is bankrupt, but
is temporarily kept alive with phony valuations and unlimited money
printing….....The consequence of this rescue mission will be a
hyperinflationary depression in many countries, due to many currencies
"...full force of the
economic crisis will hit us next year...

reveals is a broken financial system like no other in my lifetime"

to be one of the worst economic downturns since the Great Depression."

|"Right now, the
rest of the world owns $3 trillion more of us than we own of them. In
my view, it will create political turmoil at some point. Pretty soon,
I think there will be a big adjustment."

on an imprudent and unsustainable fiscal path. Our current liabilities
and unfunded commitments as of the end of the last fiscal year amounted
to over $43 trillion, up to $13 trillion in one year alone."

| "...the U.S. government is, indeed,
bankrupt, insofar as it will be unable to pay its creditors, who, in this
context, are current and future generations to whom it has explicitly
or implicitly promised future net payments of various kinds..."
- -Professor L. Kotlikoff, for the U. S. Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. (July, 2006)
are disturbing trends: huge imbalances, disequilibria, risks -- call them
what you will. Altogether the circumstances seem to me as dangerous and
intractable as any I can remember, and I can remember quite a lot. We're
borrowing so much from abroad that we're skating on thin ice. Can we correct
this problem without some kind of international financial crisis?"
Regarding the need for policies that reverse the triple deficit, "I
don't know whether the change will come with a bang or a whimper, whether
sooner or later. But as things stand, it is more likely than not that
it will be financial crises rather than policy foresight that will force
