deuda, aumento de costes y bajada de precios en las materias primas

Resumen de una entrada de Gail Tverberg en el blog Our Finite World:

The indirect impact of low oil and other commodity prices is likely be a collapse in our current debt bubble. This collapsing bubble may lead to the failures of banks and even governments.

Stocks, bonds, pension programs, insurance programs, bank accounts, and many other things of a financial nature seem to be very “solid” things–things that we can expect to be here and grow, for many years to come. Yet these things, directly and indirectly, depend on the ability of our system to produce goods and services. If something goes terribly wrong, we may find that financial assets have little more value than the pieces of paper that represent them.
