    If all the debts were paid back would there be any currency in circulation? I thought all the currency in circulation was borrowed into existence.

    I feel pretty sad watching this, more people will be hurt this time around. CNBC et al need to be turned off, and more reading, research and watching Real Vision TV needs to be done. Thanks M.L. & all

    I remember reading Michael's paper "The Nothing that Is" a few years ago and thought it was fantastic. Have used his dead shark analogy several times. The scariest thing is...is that he is right.

    I wish Michael would explain where the 2020 date comes from. It should make for a nice story

    My worry is that when the collapse finally comes the damage to the global economy, a complex dynamic system, may be irreversible. Then it gets ugly! h/t Korowicz - Trade Off

    Great to watch this just after Kyle Bass as he takes it to the next level up from a macro perspective and no doubt understands the bigger picture and global risks even better

    Excellent interview and if he is worried I am doubly worried! Bit shocked at the 2020 far end date but if things stay together for even another 3 years its more time to prepare.

    Loved the interview. He makes great sense, directionally. It is the timing that i wonder about. 2020 sounds right, but i don't want to be in the pack running for the exits . Only gold is safe?

    Hard to imagine the system surviving until 2020. Feels like we're already teetering on the brink. Got gold?

    "If you're an institution, you really have nowhere to go." That's spooky.

    Another insightful video by someone who understands the way the credit system works better than the vast majority. Yet the expert seems as puzzled as the novice in trying to survive the coming debacle

    The most informed, intelligent explanation of the financial system covering the deb and , derivatives structure of the system. RealVision is essential for survival in this unsustainable system.

    2020 he said, so we need a 4 year plan to set up a FCF positive business and get enough Gold/Silver to survive. Great video.

    Great video. You have to wonder what the knock on effect of having the concentrated views presented by RealVisionTV is. Does it become the seed particle that forms the basis for crystallization.
