You don't have to be a rocket-scientist to see this all falling into place. In three easy steps:
1) Inflate fiat currencies until they're worthless and everyone is in massive unpayable debt;
2) Crash stock market, impoverishing those not in-the-know and thereby removing any opposition;
3) Wait two months, blame it on incompetence and corruption, and present world with alternative.
According to what I'm reading, on 01.01.13, which makes sense.
