"The recent trading environment has felt something like walking into a place and having a sense that something is wrong and dangerous but not knowing exactly what will happen or when." Paul Singer isn't a "gold bug". He doesn't live in bunker. He's a realist and he manages a very large amount of money for people and he knows the math just doesn't work out for us.
Welcome to the matrix. Welcome to the Land of Oz. Maybe Paul Singer reads "doom and gloom" blogs. Maybe he is just one of those self-hating "glass half full" guys that likes to frighten people. There's no reason to bring up statistics for some people when they have both hands over their ears and a chanting nananananananana.
If they have a three car garage and a Beemer, then things really can't be that bad. They don't work three part time jobs and their wife two......to make ends meet for two kids.....while balancing a mortgage on a house that's 150K underwater on its purchase price. No....for them life is good and for everyone else......"you're on your own". After all, if you can convince yourself the matrix is reality then everything else makes perfect sense.
You have no idea of the atrocities this game has committed (Do they Red?) and I am not referring to economic atrocities and you will always be lost in the matrix.......THAT is the game.
