Elon Musk Predicts Dire Financial Situation For U.S. Later This Year | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Twitter CEO Elon Musk said during an interview Tuesday night that he believes that the U.S. might be on the verge of serious financial issues later this year due to a variety of factors.

    Speaking to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Musk said that the collapse of some major banking institutions like Silicon Valley Bank were an indicator that there are serious conditions on the horizon.

    "We have a situation here where it's not merely - it's not that the canary in the coal mine has died, but the miners are starting to die, too," he said. "Silicon Valley Bank collapsing overnight is a one hell of a big canary. ... I think that there is a serious danger with the global banking system."

    Musk said that he believes that commercial real estate properties that have been vacated due to the pandemic will exacerbate problems for banks because those were considered to be hard assets that had a lot of value for the banks.

    "So, we really haven't seen the commercial real estate shoe drop," he said. "That's more like anvil, not a shoe. The stuff we've seen thus far actually hasn't even - it's only slightly real estate portfolio degradation, that will become a very serious thing later this year in my view."

    Musk warned that inflation was going to continue to get worse because the Fed won't reduce interest rates during an election year.

    "Inflation is going to happen no matter what," Musk said.

    Musk went on to slam the U.S. federal government for passing the COVID stimulus bills because they "were not paid for" and they greatly exacerbated inflation.

    "As old saying goes, there's no free lunch," he said. "So if you could just issue massive amounts of money without negative consequences, why don't we just take that to the limit, make everyone a trillionaire? They tried that in Venezuela. How'd that work out?"


Understanding that this fragile Republic of the self-governed is in a precarious space in our nation's vast history: What is your honor bound patriotic duty in helping to sustain the continuance of these United States of America?
  I will depend on my Democratic Socialist politicians to continue to march hard toward the Left to provide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for all who think and do as they are told.
  I will defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and support all elected leaders who pledge to protect and insure the continued sovereignty of this Representative Republic.
  I am very concerned about maintaining my current life style without working. I was told that as long as I vote Democrat, I had nothing to worry about ... but now I worry.
