"No, debt is debt, whether it's on an individual, whether it's on a company, or whether it's on a country." "If you look at an individual's income, if their expenses are more than their income and the expenses are growing at a higher rate than their income is growing, then you can just do the math and say, at some point in time, they're not going to be extended credit anymore and their financial system blows up." "Debt had been accumulating in the system for a while, really since the 70s, when we came off the gold standard, which was kind of a US default. We defaulted on our promise to exchange dollars for gold for our international trading partners who stored their gold here.”
"We need a way to short government debt that will protect our money when that happens." "For a period of time, it appeared as if there was no problem because interest rates stayed relatively low for a long period of time. You're able to suppress and manipulate energy for a period of time, but for every action, there's an opposite and equal reaction." "The tipping point is when the majority of the market comes to realize something, then you see the movement in the market." "The fire (overindebtedness) never went out. The fire transferred to the government balance sheet." "Bitcoin, from what I understand and believe from what I'm seeing from my research and where I put my money, is the arc that's attracting more and more money to protect from all these governments having to wash away these debts through massive defaults and inflation."
