CS Commentary: Note that he admits he has been wrong about another financial crisis for 12 years. We believe that the markets are controlled by cycles. The next debt cycle is not likely to crash until after 2025.

Some Digital wallets may save net worth, but the question remains whether digital would have any worth in a ‘walking dead’ type of world.
