Central banks' policies are smoke and mirrors, masking their powerlessness in the face of the globalized eurodollar system. Currency interventions serve as warning signs of economic weakness. The impact on the US economy may lead to a recession.

Chinabond marketdeflationbanking system

Chinese authorities are running out of options as they face an epic bond market rally driven by bad banks, bad money, and a bad economy.
