Marc Faber Says Worry about Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain Soverign Debt DefaultsEconomics / Global Debt Crisis Jan 19, 2010 - 01:23 PM GMT
After every financial crisis there's a sovereign debt crisis, Marc Faber says. Countries that borrowed too much during the boom times start struggling to pay their competitors back, and eventually some of them default.
The countries most likely to blow up this time around are the "PIIGS": Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain. One ore more of them, Faber says, will likely default in the next couple of years. And, that could result in the death of the Euro currency.
Longer-term, Faber says, Japan and the US are in line for the same fate.
