Had a big aha moment while reading an article on ZeroHedge about US debt sales. Pretty shocking…every day, every hour, around the world, debt is being sold by the billions….hundreds of billions. Short term paper, medium paper, long term paper, overnight paper…
The grease, the lifeblood is debt….. A comment I thought worth sharing…
As I’ve read Zh over the past 9 months or so, the daily reporting of debt sales finally started to kick in.
See this and freak out and then come back… I did
That is it. The madness, visualized, real. See small business assets and corporate assets shrinking in value, fast…. the writing on the wall, clear as day!
This is how the world runs. This is how the debt fueled world runs/burns. Always living in tomorrow, next year, 10 years out. Knows that fiat is always inflating, deflation is always a temperory correction, so always inflating. IRR/NPV…. would drive both lender and borrower crazy. Perpetual cognitive dissonance on both sides.
The Supply Side World of finance and industry has destruction built into it’s fabric. No other way it can survive, because there is NO such thing as infinite growth.
Feels like an AHA moment!
Thanks Zh and all you awesome commentators…
In the demand side of this equation, you live in the now. Ripe fruit is ready to pluck, it has no real future value except rot and return to the cycle. Harvesting is as in the moment as it gets. A genuine and required phase shift from plant to food realms.
But the supply side, with debt as it’s fuel (no surprise too that in this fractal world, oil, debt’s industrial cousin, burns whatever it touches (except pure crude, which is supposed to have amazing healing properties), leaves it’s engine exhausted, literally and figuratively)) needs to always be consuming more tomorrow than it did today. It fuels the population explosion, it fuels conflict, with nature, with each other, for space, food, control….
The current, supply-side paradigm is life negative. this is why we see so much life negativity around us. A descending spiral.
I feel like another film lifted from before my eyes.
And I’m happy to be a pioneer in the demand side world that has to emerge. It’s just a big swing of the pendulum…. we have more growing to do. Quickly as the cycle tightens into the singularity.
Look around, with deep awareness and a truth meter honed because it is critical. Vivek, a fine sense of discrimination… It’s why you are reading this…. if you wish to deny, then deny everything. It’ll get you to the same place. We are where we are, as a species because we chose a life-negative, explosive, consumptive path somewhere in our not so recent history.
And the pendulum is reaching the top. In this fractal world, match the effects. Kinetic energy coiling back into potential energy. All energy is saved spirally in nature.
Kinetic going to potential. Stillness. Between top and down swing, a infinitesimal pause, but a pause for sure. A total change in direction. Then Potential uncoiling into Kinetic.
So we should prepare for a tightening, a stop and a reversal. In every facet and dimension of our lives.
Count on it. You can prepare accordingly.
