Beware: The next financial collapse is coming

by Mitch Feierstein about 8 months 3 weeks ago

There is more debt, credit, and leverage today than there was preceding the banking crisis of 2008.

Mervyn King’s decade at the Bank of England was a disaster. The Bank was too slack during the long and indisciplined boom, under prepared for the crash and playing catch-up thereafter. The legacy of Lord King’s (and Gordon Brown’s) career has been an economy still limping along far below peak output, real wages caught in […]
