- What We Are Now Seeing Is Unprecedented In World History!
Today Egon von Greyerz warned King World News that the chaos we are seeing right now is unprecedented in world history. Greyerz, who is founder of Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland, also cautioned “The confluence of these cycles will cause unimaginable turmoil in the future.” Below is what Greyerz had to say in this remarkable interview:
Eric King: “Clearly the banks have reopened in Cyprus, your thoughts in the aftermath of all of this?”
Greyerz: “Eric, they have opened, but the problem is still there. Banks still don’t have enough money. The package which has been put forward by the Troika is not going to last. If they ever, which they might not, lift the exchange controls and restrictions on Cyprus banks, then we will see a run on the banks again….
So the panic will be of a magnitude that no one can understand today. This will lead to destruction of paper currencies. It will also lead to precious metals going up dramatically as they will ultimately reflect the destruction of the paper currencies.
Eventually the current system will implode, and we will see a dramatic lowering of the standard of living. Before that time you will have social unrest, war, cyberwars, etc. But you will have massive suffering. So, sadly we are entering very difficult times. It could take decades of turmoil. Remember, the Dark Ages after the fall of the Roman Empire lasted 500 years.
