Part II - How This Will All End

In Part I of this report, I laid out my reasoning for why the game has managed to continue on as long as it has. Where a massive financial dislocation should have happened by now, in practice the impacts have been relatively minor compared to what many people had expected to happen. 

But we cannot escape the fact that entirely too many debts and liabilities exist to pay off in current dollars. Either those debts will have to be defaulted upon, or they will have to be inflated away.

Even more important than the question of which one it will be is the question of when. That's what we will explore here.
