The graph in the above article, Debt-to-GDP of over 350%, is evidence enough.

Below, Mish is agreeing with Faber on a collapse.

People have been talking about the dollar carry trade for months now. They will call this the Fed bubble. It will cast us into Depression 2.0. The only answer is to control government spending. But people will whine for their government to spend money on them - lengthening our economic loss. I'll continue to invest throughout though. See you on the flipside!

I have been retired for almost 5 years now. I have investments and, like everyone else, I will do my best to live through it and keep my family intact. I'll see you on the flipside. We do, indeed, live in "interesting times".

That's been the funniest subplot of this whole thing, the people on the left attacking this bill for not being even more of a steaming pile. - erosewater

Not really the right thread for this, but close enough. Obama actually said something that's true about this situation! Goldman is privitizing profits and socialising losses. I don't expect much to come from this, but his statement alone was more than I expected. Most likely all talk to make the Ron Paul supporters (rational people) happy.
