Profit from a Small Country's Fiscal "Escape" Plan


Worldwide debt has exploded in the eight years since the beginning of the fiscal crisis from an already unsustainable level of $142 trillion to a crushing $200 trillion. The reason?

The situation provides an appealing investment opportunity, no matter the outcome, if the position is implemented correctly.

Here's how...
