All across Europe, nations from Greece to Ireland are buckling under massive amounts of debt. Greece nearly defaulted in 2010, sparking economic jitters throughout the global markets. That could happen here, says investment advisor John Mauldin, if we aren’t careful. In his new book Endgame, Mauldin looks at what he calls the debt supercycle in this country and how it is coming to a bad end if we don’t cut our deficit. And to do that, we all need to make some serious compromises: accept tough cuts on Medicare and a hike in our taxes.
