The entire global financial markets are selling off sharply today.

U.S. stock markets are getting slammed early in the trading session. The Dow and the S&P 500 are down by over 1.5%. This follows major sell-offs in Europe and Asia earlier today, and it extends yesterday's U.S. market sell-off.

Globally, investors are digesting two big headlines:

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested that strengthening economic data could enable the Fed to start tapering, or gradually reducing, its stimulative bond-buying plan.

China reported that manufacturing activity was decelerating at a higher clip than expected in June. China is the world's second largest economy and it is also a key source of global economic growth.

Liquidity Storm! "Increasing paper till there is no money left.”

Circa 1796
Thomas Paine noted that the “English system of funding”
was close to bankruptcy; in order to finance overseas conflicts, Britain was “increasing paper till there is no money left” (133). As the war-torn decade progressed and the national debt grew, Paine realised that the principle of convertibility was about to collapse. From this point on, radical discourse configured paper and gold as class enemies. In his pamphlet Decline of the English System of Finance, published one year before Restriction in 1796, Paine predicted that gold and silver were about to “revolt against depreciation and separate from the value of paper”, in the process destroying the “popular delusion” of the credit system.
