However, Obama has been lifting my hopes (mostly with great speeches) ; this along with numerous reports of job losses bottoming out and profits starting to rise made me think Peter Schiff was just a crazy, as I'm sure he is to some degree. I stumbled upon this, an interesting news story from a LARGE European bank warning their investors of a global collapse. Unlike other people warning of a global economic collapse, this bank has a $1 trillion in assets, and also received $11 billion in bailouts from U.S. taxpayers. Banks generally do not warn investors of economic crisis, hence my concern.
