Ma perchè siamo qui a preoccuparti del futuro dell’euro ? Se e quando il Brasile entrerà in crisi . Entro due settimane potrebbe abbattersi sul mondo intero uno Tsunami finanziario di dimensioni mai viste che cancellerebbe di colpo ogni traccia di crisi : il default degli Stati Uniti D’America .
Naturalmente a nessuno conviene una cosa del genere . Ai cinesi con i loro trilioni di debito americano in pancia verrebbe un infarto il giorno dopo e tornerebbero istantaneamente all’età della pietra . L’economia mondiale si fermerebbe e si tornerebbe al baratto . Le transazioni commerciali si bloccherebbero e le merci ferme nei porti marcirebbero . In poco tempo i supermercati si svuoterebbero ed inizierebbero disordini a catena per accaparrasi i beni di prima necessità . Sembra un film dell’orrore ? Certo , ma potrebbe accadere tutto a partire da Agosto .
A U.S. debt default would cause panic throughout the financial system and long-term uncertainty, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summerstold CNN.
“It seems to me an unthinkable financial risk to take,” Summers said in an interview on “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” scheduled for broadcast tomorrow. It would cause “a cascade that makes Lehman Brothers look like a very small event.”

The bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. (LEHMQ) in September 2008 was the biggest in U.S history and was followed by a collapse of credit markets and a 43 percent decline in theS&P 500.
In 16 days, the U.S. will begin to default on its debt obligations unless Congress and President Barack Obama can agree on a deal to raise the debt ceiling. Obama has been trying to break an impasse over whether to include cuts in entitlement programs and tax increases in the deal.
Summers said a potential default makes him worry about “runs on banks, runs on money market funds,” exchanges facing “the prospect of collapse, institutions that had been built over decades” being “swept away.”
“The ability to carry on routine financial business — to clear checks, to pay bills, to meet obligations would be lost,” he said.
“It would be a totally self-inflicted cataclysm,” he said. “There’s no question the United States can meet its obligations. This idea that somehow that we cannot pay because we’re having a political fight over how to handle the spending and taxing” is “democracy functioning in the worst possible way,” he said.
