U.S. economy is collapsing underneath flood of new debt

The U.S. economic system is riddled with more debt now than in 2008 when a de facto financial collapse the Great Financial Crisis occurred. Debt behaves like printed money until the time at which the debt has to be repaid. The Federal Government never repays the debt is issues. It rolls over maturities while at the same time it issues more debt. This happens every two weeks. There’s now $19 trillion in Treasury debt outstanding. That number was about $10 trillion when Obama took office in 2008.

Perpetual debt refunding and increased issuance is NO DIFFERENT THAN OUTRIGHT MONEY PRINTING. Until of course, the creditors will no longer tolerate the refinancing of existing debt. That’s what happened in 2008. The market forced the issue and the financial system was collapsing until the Treasury facilitated an eventual $4.4 trillion in outright money printing.

The difference between then and now is that the amount of debt issued is significantly greater today than it was in 2008. While everyone was watching the Fed’s printing press to monitor the creation of money, no one was keeping track of the spending “power” being created by the fractional banking system’s credit market funding mechanism.

This illusion of economic “wealth creation” is perhaps best represented by the auto market, in which sales have soared to record levels over the past few years. The problem is that the amount of auto loans issued to drive this level of sales is, by far, at an all-time high. At least one-third to half of this debt issued since 2010 can be considered sub-prime, even though the bankers may not have labelled it as such. While the headlines today might herald “strong” auto sales in February, bear in mind that it is primarily funded by artificially low interest rates and non-income verification 100%+ loan to value debt. Private market credit companies that are now offering “equity” loans to people who own cars with little or no debt.
