Zero Hedge: Economist John Williams, founder of ShadowStats.com, says the Federal Reserve has painted itself into such a tight corner with the economy it really has only two choices. Williams says it comes down to “Inflation or Implosion.”
“ And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A [b]quart of wheat for a [c]denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”” Revelation 6:6
What would happen to the financial system if the Fed stopped printing massive amounts of money for stimulus and debt service? Williams explains,
“You could see financial implosion by preventing liquidity being put into the system. The system needs liquidity (freshly created dollars) to function. Without that liquidity, you would see more of an economic implosion than you have already seen. In fact, I will contend that the headline pandemic numbers have actually been a lot worse than they have been reporting. It also means we are not recovering quite as quickly. The Fed needs to keep the banking system afloat. They want to keep the economy afloat. All that requires a tremendous influx of liquidity in these difficult times.”
So, is the choice inflation or implosion? Williams says, “That’s the choice, and I think we are going to have a combination of both of them...”
“ I think we are eventually headed into a hyperinflationary economic collapse.
