Ok not really. It is however fun to say. I don't need to convince you that people are pretty dumb and/or uniformed in general. Some of those people wield power from a chair of selfishness while blindfolded and drunk. Some idiots are voted into office or even given high level positions in our government, and some like Bachmann even in positions of national security.

Having said that, I won't waste time presenting another chart or prediction. I would simply point you to the recent performance of WallSt and previous predictions made by the heads of major banks and financial institutions. Read some of the recession predictions and Wall Street collapse predictions. It's fun, try it. Like a made for TV drama but more pathetic.

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here until whenever...

You may be a little premature in your crowing. The effects of QE infinity have yet to be seen,

I confess, I was one of the folks who bought into all the "doom is upon us" talk at the height of the recession. I took it pretty serious. I bought more guns and ammo and expected the economy and society to collapse. I knew there would be food riots and predatory gangs roaming the streets.

Alas, I was just sucked in like millions of other people. There are a lot of people who still think it will happen.

What makes you so sure it won't happen sometime down the road?

[-] 1 points by Narley (280) 1 year ago

I think there's an probably a 50% chance it will happen sometime in the future. But not anytime soon.

I think if SHTF it will occur in slow motion over a period of years, say five years just to pick a number. It won't be a case of you waking up one morning and finding no food in the market.

I actually did some prepping. Not big time. My activities were more like planning for a hurricane. Food and water for a month or so, weapons ready, bug out plan, etc... Did research and visited prepper web sites. In the end I came to believe nothing was going to happem. But it was educational.

It's better to have the knowledge and not need it, you know? A decent stash of food and necessities too. I figure you're probably right about it not being an overnight thing. That's my feeling too. Probably over a few years. Barring some unexpected catastrophe, of course.

But that's something you should consider, too. There's any of a dozen or more things that could happen that would make things worse real quick.

You notice how the Fed has already put out the word that they're considering turning off the spigot next year. Hell, they're already warning people over a year in advance. That should tell you something. Read between the lines.

The problem is the average person is 9 meals away from violence to eat/feed others.. And the entire food supply is built upon complex corporate systems. And its not built to deal with shock whatsoever. Just-in-time inventory to keep the corporate books lean.

Its not hard to imagine a scenario that puts that entire thing into whack.

Whether it happens is anyone's guess.

I don't think SHTF is a probability in the foreseeable future, but it's still a possibility. I'll hold on to my guns for a while just in case.

Corporations need economies. Basically this indicates the elite destroying the economy are using corps as tools.
