An in-house researcher at InfoWars has warned that the current economic crisis in Sri Lanka could be a harbinger of things to come. And this may be the first domino to fall in a series of crashes leading to a total global collapse.
Sri Lanka defaulted on its debt for the first time in its history as the country grapples with the worst financial crisis in more than 70 years. On May 25, a 30-day grace period expired to pay off outstanding interest on the $78 million debt.
“We assume that we are talking about a relatively small country, and people may think that this is not directly related to their daily lives. But we all want smoke detectors to work in our bedrooms to warn us of a fire outside. Thus, a warning from any other part of the world will always be relevant in one way or another,” said the researcher, introduced only as Simon by host Harrison Smith, in the May 24 issue of The American Journal.
Simon cited the latest financial and economic crisis in Asia, which began in 1997, as a starting point.
“So it’s really not that hard to imagine that if things went badly in Indonesia, in Thailand, in Malaysia, it actually caused an economic crisis that was felt all over the world. Unfortunately, this is history repeating itself,” the researcher said.
According to Smith, the term that could best describe the current phenomena is “the perfect storm.”
“We have supply chain disruptions due to Covid-19, the war in Ukraine. Countries like India no longer export wheat products; Germany warns of severe global famine; Russia is blamed for the global food crisis; wheat prices are rising; and lower yields of soybeans and a number of other staples,” Smith said, listing the current issues affecting the global economy.
What is now happening in Sri Lanka is real, widespread, massive and devastating human suffering on a massive scale. Political unrest and violence are widespread, schools are closed, power outages and fuel is running low.
“And you can ignore that and live comfortably in America or Western Europe, wherever you are. But what happens in Sri Lanka could very well happen in the rest of the world,” warned Smith.
