Nice work on the so-called US savings rate.

Look at it in more simple terms. The massive trade imbalance has to end eventually. It is relatively easy to conclude that we are closer to the credit limit.

There is excess investment globally. China bought into the temporary recession thesis and artificially expanded the economy. This is coming to an end as it is also unsustainable.
