The Bankruptcy Of The Planet Accelerates – 24 Nations Are Currently Facing A Debt Crisis

Dominoes - Public Domain

There has been so much attention on Greece in recent weeks, but the truth is that Greece represents only a very tiny fraction of an unprecedented global debt bomb which threatens to explode at any moment. As you are about to see, there are 24 nations that are currently facing a full-blown debt crisis, and there are 14 more that are rapidly heading toward one. Right now, the debt to GDP ratio for the entire planet is up to an all-time record high of 286 percent, and globally there is approximately 200 TRILLION dollars of debt on the books. That breaks down to about $28,000 of debt for every man, woman and child on the entire planet. And since close to half of the population of the world lives on less than 10 dollars a day, there is no way that all of this debt can ever be repaid. The only “solution” under our current system is to kick the can down the road for as long as we can until this colossal debt pyramid finally collapses in upon itself.

As we are seeing in Greece, you can eventually accumulate so much debt that there is literally no way out. The other European nations are attempting to find a way to give Greece a third bailout, but that is like paying one credit card with another credit card because virtually everyone in Europe is absolutely drowning in debt.

Even if some “permanent solution” could be crafted for Greece, that would only solve a very small fraction of the overall problem that we are facing.  The nations of the world have never been in this much debt before, and it gets worse with each passing day.

According to a new report from the Jubilee Debt Campaign, there are currently 24 countries in the world that are facing a full-blown debt crisis

■ El Salvador

At the very basic level for people who know what's coming. The most important thing you're going to need is food. Either start growing your own or move to a country with good agriculture and plenty of land ie: Ireland,Canada,wherever and start a farm for your family. It was popular in the earliest of man's history for a reason - the sweat off your back, not money was the deciding factor in your life. A Fence, A Farm and a Firearm are all you need in this world. If the SHTF and confusion reigns cover the 3 F's and you and your Family will enjoy life maybe better than before. No-one should loose hope and none should despair. Start looking now however's first will get the best land.

How many of these countries on the list have loans from the IMF and the World Bank?

If majority do, then that is the main reason why they are on the bankruptcy lists. IMF and World Bank practice loansharking at the highest level.

If that crisis comes, just hire South American economists. We know a lot about how to generate and how to leave that kind of crisis. See: there's no South American country in that list!

It will happen and when it does debt will be written off. As simple as that! Life for more than 90% of the population will continue as normal, if not better from the relief of the debt. For the really and the super rich though things will be utterly bad. Life style as they know it today will no longer be sustainable (e.g. buying islands, jets etc). Luxury brands will also suffer but luckily enough they represent only small proportion of the world economy. Cannot say I sympathise to be honest

The super rich have resources to adapt to a socioeconomic crisis. They will position themselves to be of "help" for any new government coming out the chaos following a global meltdown, or - if modern governments ends - arm themselvs and evolve into small fiefdoms. Like they have done before when great empires and complex economies have broken down. The 90 percent in the middle on the other hand, the middle class and the workers, depend so much more on a strong state and stable government to exist. I am much more worried about us. That said - I do not think modern government will cease to exist. Like you I belive there will be a write off. But will it be todays governments who do the write off, or will there be some upheaval, followed by a write off by new governments, like the communists and nazis in the 20ies and 30ies Europe?
