Today Egon von Greyerz, who spoke with King World News from Switzerland, warned that the global financial system could fail at any time now. Greyerz, who is founder of Matterhorn Asset Management, also said the Cyprus disaster is now set to engulf the world. Below is what Greyerz had to say in this remarkable interview:
Greyerz: “Eric, Cyprus is a momentous event. Losses could be in the tens of billions of dollars. But like all major crises there is always a catalyst, and whether it was a shot in Sarajevo (assassination of Archduke Ferdinand which started World War I), or the fall of the Credit-Anstalt in Austria in 1931, there is always an event in history which people look back on as the start of tremendous global turmoil. Cyprus could very well be that event.
