DANIELLE LACALLE According to the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the IIF (Institute of International finance) global debt has soared to a new record high.

The level of government debt around the world has ballooned since the financial crisis, reaching levels never seen before during peacetime. This has happened in the middle of an unprecedented monetary experiment…

Transitioning to a cashless society is a natural fit for the authoritarian regime in Beijing — and one that has long been sold as “benign” by the more “liberal” globalist elite.
