Marc Faber: US Bankrupt 10 Years

Marc Faber - US going bankrupt

Marc Faber states in about 10 years over 35 percent of tax revenues collected in the United States will have to be used to pay off the U.S. debt.

“Maximum within 10 years time more than 35% of tax revenues will have to be used to pay the interest on the government debt and then you are in trouble – because then there will be not enough money out of the budget to pay for other stuff. I’m convinced the US government will go bankrupt, but not tomorrow. And before they go bankrupt, they’ll print money, and then you get high inflation rates, you have a depression and eventually they’ll go to war,” said Faber

He also believes the credit rating of the U.S. could fall below its top rated 'A' status, especially if the economy grows much slower than estimates, and the more information that comes out, the more a reality that seems to be.

Inflation is coming, it's only a matter of when it becomes noticeable. Some prices are already significantly higher, but they're balanced by the drop in others. Pretty soon that scenario won't be able to survive in the realities ahead of us, and then the unthinkable will happen.
