You might want to double check that on the Soviet Union. They went into a spiral of debt which wasn't even admitted to until the late 1980's, even as a suggestion. At the end, they did admit to just how real and deep their debt had become...right before they collapsed. The Governments who depended heavily on Moscow then collapsed in quick succession over the follow year or so. The whole of Eastern Europe. I know it's easy to think that happened as a big block event ...but it was each nation, on separate conditions and circumstances, falling for it's own reasons in sequence. The only common denominator (aside from obvious politics of the regimes) was the heavy reliance on the Soviet Union.
As far as this guy, well... I wish someone would explain to some of these 'experts' that it's like the rule of observation in science. You can tend to change something by merely observing it. In this case, the whole economy is based on perception of stability and belief of value. Perceptions ... Which absolutely CAN be shaken and shattered with enough hammering of "The Sky Is falling! RUN!". When Chicken Little is a thousand little chicks all squawking the same thing? Well, it MAY have been inevitable. The drum beat INSURES it is, IMO.edit on 1-4-2013 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)

Just look at the economy since 2008 to now. It reeks like it's been artificially pumped up to increase this false confidence in the markets.
