Defaults on sovereign debt are likely to proliferate in the next crisis, Marc Faber wrote in his latest "Gloom, Boom & Doom Report."
The US will likely try to inflate its way out of its fiscal deficits, but many other countries do not have this option as their external debts are denominated in foreign currencies, Faber, who will guest host "Squawk Box Europe" Friday, wrote.
At some point, market participants will have second thoughts about the ability of governments to pay their debt and will shun sovereign credit, which in turn will take yields higher, accentuating the problem, according to the report.
"Investors who rushed into government-guaranteed debts in 2008-2009 in the belief that AAA-rated governments would always pay the interest on their debts and repay the creditor in full upon maturity could be in for a rude awakening sometime in the next 5 to 10 years," Faber wrote.
