Yep. There is no thing as a "stable" capitalism. Debt is the fuel that drives the motor until the point where debt no longer generates growth because the debitors are no langer able or willing to pay back at least some of their debt. The system or parts of the system will crash, it will reboot itself until the next time or until we stupid humans invent something better
