    My money's on 21 December 2012, when the Mayan calender ends.

    Club of Rome is an elite membership group that uses environmental scare tactics to subtly promote eugenics and world government, including world carbon taxes. This article is par for the course for anything they sponsor.

    Notice they don't blame monetary policies, government policies, etc. They blame you for the coming collapse because you're a "useless eater" and you're using up all the resources and harming the planet. What's the solution then? Get rid of you.

    What happened to the predictions that all the poor people would die of AIDS and ebola before now and the rest of us will drown in rising oceans by then?

    In short - so what?

    Do we have decades, years, or mere months? That is the real question.

    That's crazy talk. Everyone knows that there is no problem regarding how much money that can be borrowed and/or owed, that can't be fixed by just printing more.

    Do all these chicken littles not realize how much ink and paper we have in this country? Plenty to print enough money to pay all of our debts off threefold, at least.

    Quit worrying. That's our kids and grandkids problems, anyway.

    Well, actually, without immigration, the United States would have near zero population growth, too.

    But, we can't control third world birth rates, nor their immigration here, afterwards, apparently.

    Malthus never accounted for technological advancement in his doomsday prophesies, and he's an even bigger joke in economic circles than Bill Mitchell, Stephanie Kelton, JK Galbraith Jr., and that whole stupid MMT thing.

    No worries, there. They'll be putting pillows over our heads in our sleep when they figure out what we did to them. :supergrin:

    Why didn't we all starve to death in the 1960's?

  16. We don't have that long.

    The dollar will lose its reserve currency status during the next presidential term along with a few more credit downgrades. That will bring in hyperinflation and collapse society as we know it long before 2030.

    Well, I don't see the USD losing its reserve currency status any time soon, mainly because there's no good alternative. The Yuan isn't ever going to be a reserve currency because China won't let it float nor will the ChiComs allow the kind of transparency required for it to happen. The Euro isn't because, well, Greece.
     
  18. Many countries are already making plans to buy/sell crude oil, between themselves and not use the USD.

    That is huge and once most of the world stops using the USD to buy crude oil....we are in serious trouble.

    Again...do some research...this is already happening. Big media is largely ignoring it, too.
