I've been reading their reports since 2006... they've been right all along. Their timing was off a few times, but a lot of times they were exactly right. Don't know if they gonna hit the timing this time around, but the events will happen, sooner or later.

Global systemic crisis: Autumn 2011 – Budget/T-Bonds/Dollar, the three US crises which will cause the Very Serious Breakdown of the global economic, financial and monetary system

Basically, the process that is unfolding before our eyes, of which the US entry into an era of austerity (15) is a simple budgetary expression, is a continuation of the balancing of the 30 trillion of ghost assets which had invaded the global economic and financial system in late 2007 (16). While about half of them had disappeared in 2009, they have been partially resurrected since then due to the volition of the major global central banks, and the US Federal Reserve in particular and its "QE 1 and 2". Our team considers, therefore, that 20 trillion of these ghost assets will go up in smoke beginning autumn 2011, and very brutally, under the combined impact of the three US mega-crises in accelerated gestation:

. the budgetary crisis, or how the United States plunges willingly or by force into this unprecedented austerity and takes whole swathes of the global economy and finance with it

. the crisis in US Treasury bonds, or how the US Federal Reserve reaches the "end of the road" which began in 1913 and must face up to its bankruptcy whatever accounting sleight of hand is chosen

. the US Dollar crisis, or how the jolts in the US currency that will characterize the ending of QE2 in the second quarter of 2011 will be the beginnings of a massive devaluation (around 30% in a few weeks).

S and P downgraded the US credit rating today to "AAA negative." A sell off ensued when the market heard the news. The dollar strengthened. It looks like the decline is starting.

There will most likely be a number of "scares" before the real thing happens. This is the nature of the market. One guy sees an opportunity to sell-off another to buy. So until everyone gets one way of thinking in their mind... well...

Give it time.

I see a few headlines that this is a "wake up call" and that members of Congress are starting to sit up and realize they need to do something about Federal spending.
Let's hope they actually do something. I don't think it's too late to stop the SHTF, but it's getting close....
