A couple of threads have come up and some point the question was raised: What is the solution? The people are usually wanting to know how to get back to a better point in time or how do we avoid the bad times. One thread was about overpopulation the others usually have to deal with the USA budget deficit and debt. My opinion - there is no going back to a better point in time and only bad times lay ahead. I guess a third is the current Central Banks' actions around the world. There are no solutions - just bad times to come - deal with it!
