- Somewhat recent $11 trillion USD borrowings in emerging markets hurting from recent US dollar strength vs other fiat currencies. Emerging markets are now in bear markets, thus the ongoing hemorrhaging and China trade war escalations. What are Japan and the EU doing vs the US?
- This fall 2018, Michael sees a likely US financial market downturn due to an ongoing confluence of events he mentions in sequence.
- Current Fed QT and other factors are potentially leading to this aforementioned fall 2018 downturn. Central Bank responses could include restarting coordinated macro quantitative easing programs again, while back-slashing interest rates to zero and beyond into negative interest rate levels. What are the potential psychological affects of another global financial crisis on the mass of investors and people at large?
- Finally Michael hammers the point that Gold Bullion values historically performs best in falling real interest rate environments, when broad based sovereign debt defaults commence, and ultimately with failing faith in the fiat monetary system en masse.
Record Global Debt Levels near $250 trillion USD in Q1 2018
A bullion buyer years before the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, James Anderson is a grounded precious metals researcher, content creator, and physical investment grade bullion professional. He has authored several Gold & Silver Guides and has been featured on the History Channel, Zero Hedge, Gold-Eagle, Silver Seek, Value Walk and many more.

Given that repressed commodity values are now near 100-year low level valuations versus large US stocks, James remains convinced investors and savers should buy and maintain a prudent physical bullion position now, before more unfunded promises debase away in the coming decades.
