Soros Warns of “Economic Collapse,” Nations Leaving Euro

Monday, June 27, 2011, 1:21pm EDT Written by GoldAlert Staff.

nations leaving euro

George Soros warned of an international economic collapse and several nations leaving the euro currency at a panel discussion in Vienna, Austria this past weekend.

Soros, the legendary investor who ran the Quantum Fund with Jim Rogers, stated that “There’s no arrangement for any countries leaving the euro, which in current circumstances is probably inevitable. We are on the verge of an economic collapse which starts, let’s say, in Greece, but it could easily spread. The financial system remains extremely vulnerable,” according to a Bloomberg report.

“I think most of us actually agree that” Europe’s crisis “is actually centered around the euro,” Soros continued. “It’s a kind of financial crisis that is really developing. It’s foreseen. Most people realize it. It’s still developing. The authorities are actually engaged in buying time. And yet time is working against them.”

Soros needs to be taken down in a manner which serves as a warning to his offspring.

So, Soros gets what he wants again.

He and his cabal of Nazis need to be seriously brought to terms for the people of this world.

He sees people as expendable commodities.

And will expend as many as possible to meet his ends.

Crashing the Euro would be the biggest trophy on Soros's wall yet. Which will be his next target? The yen, the yuan or just go for the biggest of them all and aim to take down the dollar. If he wants it, he better hurry before Ben "Inky" Bernanke hyperinflates it out of existence.

just as I planned. I was able to bring down other countries and will not stop until the world is mine. The liberals in the US are working hard to bring my plans to completion. If it wasn't for that tea party and those conservatives I would be almost there. We must start our own tea party with the unions and those who are discriminated against; the gays, most blacks and over half the hispanics. We must do whatever it takes to win that presidential election; I have all the money in the world and will do whatever it takes!

If the Chinese had any sense they would take out Soros and his buds and fam, in order to preserve their own investment and economy.

What country does Sore-*ss live in now?

He and Kim Jong-il have to meet before both kick the bucket. They will find that they both have quite a lot in common.

Agreed. I keep thinking that if a hair on Glenn Beck's head is harmed, let's put it this way, I would not want to be in Soro's shoes. (Even so, I still would not want to be in his shoes)

His end game is a global central bank with a single global currency-issuing power. He hopes to live long enough to see it born.

Maybe in 2013, an even century after The Creature from Jekyll Island (the federal reserve) was born.

The plain fact of the matter is .....he’s right.

He could have very well reached that conclusion the same as I did by reading the threads here on Free Republic. His words are old news, including the lack of a plan B.

Americans tend to be USA centric but one primary reason for our economic doldrums is the debacle in Europe. Business can not be persuaded to expand with the 1,000 pound anvil of European chaos swinging on a thin thread directly overhead

This has nothing to do with the latest self serving crap from Soros.

I have for a long time noticed how this guy, as well as his buddy Peter B Lewis, and many other far leftists, REFUSE TO DIE! Can not his guy fall asleep and NOT WAKE UP, can we not rid ourselves of this piece of human excrement. I mean, people die ever day., might as well be people I hate.

Rant Off!

Which is something that certainly was not part of Soros’ master plan. So you aren’t all-powerful after all, eh, Georgie Boy?

He is right however. The Greeks will literally set their own country on fire before they’ll accept an IMF austerity plan.

"I think most of us actually agree that” Europe’s crisis “is actually centered around the euro"

Well duh! That's quite obvious. His solution is one that is equally obvious, a centralized bank to control the monetary policy. However, what is left unsaid is that the next step to that is a centralized government that controls the economic policy of all EU member states. You can't have a single currency without these other elements.

I hope his other prediction comes true. That countries will start leaving the Euro. It would be the best policy. If Greece did not have the crutch of the Euro and being part of the European union, they would have to shape themselves up.

You have him analyzed correctly but he said the same thing in 2004 about defeating Bush. However, now he has even more phony voters and election fraud schemes working for him, including plans for most Democrats to crossover and elect our candidate again. Once we have a candidate we must work really hard to turn out and elect them regardless of who it is.

Spooky Dude has company. Wolfgang Schauble, the German Finance Minister, said this weekend that they are “preparing for the worst.”

Greece will default. That’s in the cards. It’s what comes next that could set off a tsunami.

Why not just send Bernanke over there with his printing presses to pump out Euros and pay off the debts of Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland?

For all the chaos and damage this POS has caused, why hasn't one of his victims made a move to remove Soros in any way, shape or form? With all of the technology and agents trained to do this kind of work, why have we not heard anything on the subject?

His turn WILL come, and it must be soon.

I suspect his plan is to milk money out of the misery of failing countries - and maybe help by pushing a few off the cliff...

Soros acts as though this is news...in reality the plan since 1997 was:

Step #1: create a non-soveriegn currency (i.e. Euro)
Step #2: move all soveriegn debt into new non-sovereign currency
Step #3: default on non-sovereign currency/debt
Step #4: return each state back to their former sovereign currencies

The above accomplishes a debt default without the fallout that Russia saw from its sovereign debt default in 1998. However, in hindsight, perhaps Russia was the smart one to do the bad deed openly and fast, Machiavellan-esque.

Post of the day.

Soros is 100% right on this one, though it may be painful to admit. Even the EuroBanksters admit, there is no Plan B. Somewhat silly, if you ask me.....planning for contingencies is the oldest rule in the book.

If that's his plan, it's not going to happen anytime soon. If anything, the failure of the Euro would be a giant step in the opposite direction. A global currency, if it could ever exist in light of the events of the past few months in Europe, requires the Euro to be saved.

A global single currency would only happen on the back side of a global economic collapse, wars, famines, etc. But I think that is what they are angling for. In Lenin’s words, “The worse, the better.” (For imposing a socialist system rapidly by force.)

The “crisis” isn’t “centered around the euro” or the dollar. It was caused by political correctness, and it’s a long way from done. Have fun. Enjoy the slide.
