By Duncan Richardson, News Editor

15 Sep 2015

With global debt over $200 trillion and stock markets straining under the weight of record valuations, is the house of cards ready to fall? Increasing numbers of people are waking up to the idea that our debt based monetary system is both fragile and unsustainable. As the system starts to unravel increasing number of people are asking what will be the trigger point?

Below is a list of potential catalysts

China starts to sell U.S. treasuries.

The stock market or bond market crashes.

Greece defaults on its debt obligations.

Interest rates rise causing mass panic in the world’s debt markets.

Saudi Arabia and its OPEC partners except payment in currency other than the U.S. dollar.

The Comex fails as the shortage of physical gold or silver becomes apparent.

As currency wars heat up as the EU and US introduce trade tariffs.

A credit collapse occurs triggering the Fed, ECB and BoE to print massive amounts of money.
