All fiat money systems have crashed, its a certainty, they all have a life depending on certain factors. The point in all of them is reached, where creating more just causes inflation. Its already happened, property has inflated, in fact property has hyper inflated. The debt to loan payback ratio stuffs up the system, at the moment they are handing out sub prime auto loans just to keep it going.26% are in default or around that figure .The Job market which is essential to pay back the debt, isn't 4.5% unemployment , its more like 24%....Its essential that they talk the Ponzi up for as long as possible, because they haven't got a clue on what to do when it implodes.

Some types of secured bonds are mortgage bonds and equipment trust certificates. Secured bonds are collateralized by assets such as property, equipment or another income stream. For example, mortgage-backed securities (MBS) are backed by the titles to the borrowers’ houses and by the income stream from mortgage payments. If the issuer does not make timely interest and principal payments, investors have rights to the underlying assets as repayment
