To say that the global economy is walking on egg shells might be the understatement of the year. Global deficits, widespread protest of existing governments and now natural disasters may be pushing an already fragile world to the brink.

Now, the world's 3rd largest economy is literally collapsing in front of our eyes. I do not wish to minimize the human loss, but at some point we have to face the grim implications of what it really means to lose Japan as an economic super power.

This article is dire in nature, yet very well founded.

It is with a heavy heart that I am now issuing the highest level alert to my readers than I have to date. The threshold for an alert is one or more world events that personally cause me to take action.

I'm making this alert publicly available less than 36 hours after releasing it to my enrolled subscribers given its importance and the speed at which events are accelerating.

The substance of this alert centers on the unknown aftershocks that may result from the world's third largest economy, Japan, rapidly shifting from an exporter of funding to a consumer of it. In situations like these, we are by definition operating with incomplete and often confusing information, and events are developing more rapidly than they can be fully analyzed and internalized. We regret in advance any mistakes that we might make due to making calls and decisions in this highly fluid environment.

Japan... U.S. Treasuries' 2nd largest foreign owner.
Japan... about to be in dire need of liquidated assets to pay for rebuilding.
U.S.... about to see Japan selling off U.S. Treasuries to raise ca$h.
U.S.... the Fed about to end it's Treasury buying program.
U.S.... about to see INFLATION BIG TIME.

All because of an earthquake half way around the globe from us...

Global economies sure are tenuous, aren't they??

Man, ain't that the truth.

Most may or may not know that Japan is indeed the world's 2nd largest holder of US Treasuries (next to the Federal Reserve - Will someone please explain to me how that works). There are now stories that Tokyo is becoming a ghost town. 11 million people... Living in NYC I can tell you that if I walked down 5th Avenue tomorrow and it was deserted, I would crap my pants.

Japan will INDEED need BILLIONS of dollars to rebuild. Sadly, they have already spent the equivalent to the US TARP program (Over $700 Billion US) in 4 DAYS just to keep their stock market from being demolished.

The US may just have lost their best customer...

Well - there it is...the Yen is literally getting crushed. This is another historical event unfolding right before our eyes...


One can only watch this devastation with horror. USDJPY drops to 76. Unbelievable. Many Wall Street FX desks are blowing up right at this moment.

S&F.

Today's disaster is tomorrow's new normal, and think because we're alive, the new reality is the new normal. We forget about how the disasters in progress will change tomorrow, and we stop preparing.

Did that make sense?

Middle east governments turned upside down, Japan moves 13 feet closer to the US in a few minutes, nuclear power plants melting down, the US Government becoming more and more a dictatorship, the Fed became the biggest owner of the USA, and every country in the world printing money as fast as they can. Normal or catastrophe?

Seems the U.S. Goverment is continuing to Endanger the Lives of it's Citizens by it's Incompetent handling of our current Energy Policies . This latest Alex Jones Interview with BBC Journalist Greg Palast sheds some Alarming Light on this subject here.

It's The End Of The World As We Know It-

And I feel fine... it starts with an earthquake...

Hmmm, I thought that meant the yen was gaining value.

You do realize it is the Dollar getting crushed by the Yen and not the other way around. I think it is pretty funny because the Japanese government debt problem is no better than America's. Speculators are running the world and no one is in charge.
