Next Great Depression? MIT researchers predict
Does that make you feel better or something?
Yahoo! is in the ditch, by the way. What's that tell you?
Gotta get out of this one first.
Give me a call when our resident economists and social scientists chime in.
Just thought people might want to get an early job on things.
who was that guy that said it was going to all fall apart in 2011, he had some kind of commercial on CNN and a youtube video along with his own website.... he said for everyone to invest in gold ect ect... said it would be chaos and riots in the streets....
Yeah, yeah, that was me... so, um, sorry about that.
yeah thats him!
Harold is full of sxhit.
I'd assumed it was common knowledge that we're on an unsustainable course.
Kind of obvious really.
Well he was trying to predict the end of the world. Not another Great Depression Bling.
He's still full of sxhit.
Well you won't get any argument from me on that.
Who are you trying to kid? At the rate we are adding debt we wont last another 5 yrs.
"We are accumulating debt at a rate of $3.7 billion per day, or $154 million per hour. No politician of either party, other than Ron Paul, has any plan to even moderate the spending, let alone make actual cuts. The CBO projections rolled out by these congressional weasels aren’t worth the paper they are printed on. The National Debt is on track to surpass $20 trillion in 2015 and $25 trillion by 2018. And this is before the Medicare and Social Security costs blast into orbit in 2020. Kicking the can down the road works until math catches up with you. It is insane to believe we can dig ourselves out of this debt induced mess with more debt, but empires tend to act insanely in their death throes."
Depression isn't that bad. It's the murderous rage that ... oh, wait, forget I said that.
There have been mass deaths periodically throughout history...where large chunks of the human population have been wiped out from war, disease, famine, etc. Examples would be:
WWI and the Spanish Flue pandemic
An Lushan Rebellion
Qing dynasty conquest of the Ming Dynasty
The Black Plague
Great Chinese Famine
I'm talking about mass deaths in the 10's of millions range...entire generations. We haven't had any events like these in a long time. We've eradicated some diseases, developed better treatments, precautions and prevention techniques for others...and avoided world wars since the last one. Although we've still got famines and millions of deaths from them...they aren't on the same scale as what China experienced from 1959-1962.
We're living longer, procreating more and not killing each other at the same rate we used too. If we just look at history over the long term...unfortunately, maybe it's time fo another massive global catastrophe?
Now they are trying artificially drive up the price of bullets.
No... the USA is the Saudi Arabia of natural gas! Get on board for the natural gas conversion!
All hail the shale! 100 years of freedom
Tar Sands All the way!! It's really bitumen!
Especially once you consider the enormous numbers of people -- who in biological terms represent an incubator for microbial evolution -- and the speed of modern travel.
“The next Fourth Turning is due to begin shortly after the new millennium, midway through the Oh-Oh decade. Around the year 2005, a sudden spark will catalyze a Crisis mood. Remnants of the old social order will disintegrate. Political and economic trust will implode. Real hardship will beset the land, with severe distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation and empire. The very survival of the nation will feel at stake. Sometime before the year 2025, America will pass through a great gate in history, commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression and World War II.” – Strauss & Howe - The Fourth Turning
