Inside sources have been telling me that the Fed has been going from firm to firm telling the bankers their models are wrong and need to be re-calibrated for the likelihood of a failure to see the typical flight to quality meaning Treasuries during the next crash.

The Investment Bankers with their hands out as always accelerated the collapse in society that has now turned into an all out war against capital. They have created the Phase Transition in government power where all rights, privileges, and immunities are now gone. They are now using all camera to scan license plates and can now track where people are going as well. There is nothing that is private anymore.
