How's it feel to be the family nutcase?
Seriously, I would consider that speak no more of it will be your safest bet. Otherwise you may end up with 100 friends & family & coworkers kicking your door in when TSHTF.
If you wont take that advice, the it really comes down to "all roads lead to an economic collapse" as bad or worse than the great depression.
Problem: Our economy is based on GROWTH...it must have it or it dies! There's no way around this one.
Next problem: Everything (and yes i do mean EVERYTHING) is created with, produced, or shipped by OIL. (this one took me a few months but i finally figured out it was true).
Next problem: As world oil production starts to decline, the economy will decline (contract). But not in proportion with eachother...in the jimmy carter era, we had 5% less oil then we wanted...that QUADRUPLED the price of gas...so what happens when we have 10% less than we want? 15% less than we want?
Good to have you on board!
