US’ Multi-Decade Debt Orgy Finally Hit End o’ da Line:
Virtually no one’s willing or able to take on more debt –
Despite utterly unheard-of low interest rates! Lenders also finally hit the end for numerous reasons:
= FLAME OUT !
*private sector, excluding financial,¹ per capita

Even Nominal* US GDP Stalls Out

Unprecedented Fed Desperation Fails to Re-Ignite US Economy, nor Borrowing:
= Keynesian Fantasies Finally Reach $ Bubble Dead End
Above graphs demonstrate dollar collapse drove vast majority of increase in nominal GDP,
not population growth: Global GDP multiplied almost sixty times while population only tripled.
Dollar collapse due to US’ unprecedented debt orgy: Total debt exploded almost eighty times since 1960
= Lots more Dollars Chasing virtually Same Amount of Goods = Prices Skyrocket
Dollar Collapse Reflected in Oil and Gold Prices:
Above graph actually understates dollar collapse by orders of magnitude:
technological advances since 1971 cut costs of gold and oil extraction plus oil transport to small fractions as much, otherwise both mineral resources would be multiple times more expensive in dollars.
Most cost improvements occurred last two decades of last century, why prices steadiest then.
Also: Rest of world slowed dollar collapse this century by trashing their own currencies in global race to bottom.
Positive Effect of Borrowing on Economy Vanishes:

economists may argue for centuries how much additional borrowing exacerbated GDP collapse.
