Interview with Nassim Nicholas Taleb, famous economist and author of “The Black Swan” and Dr. Mandelbrot, professor of Mathematics. Both say that the present economic situation is far more serious than the Great Depression and the economy during the American Revolution.
Greg, you haven’t read "The Black Swan" have you? I’m in the midst of it right now.
[quote=DrKrbyLuv]Major BUMP – thanks, this is a very well done video – we can be sooo much better than we are. Yes, our problems are many but if we can become a fiscally responsible nation – we will have solved our greatest problem.
DrKrbyLuv, Agree on the major bump but not what it is.
I would welcome that as our greatest problem. I consider that one to be our second greatest problem with the population growth dependant upon an oil based economy to top the list. Shelter, food and lifestyle impacts will make our fiscal issues pale by comparison.
Sorry about the neo-Malthusian approach but it is there for all of us to see if we will only look. 70,000,000 more each year is a huge burden on the ole planet. Let’s downsize by choice now.

Logical Fallacies and the Art of Debate
If this article does not give you a sick feeling I don’t know what would. :-O
Hard to believe that this article, "The Five Myths About the Gold Standard" was written by Ron Paul in 1981, had they listened to him then we would not in the economic mess we are in today.

Videos by Alex Jones with Dr.Edwin Vieira,
Here is a scenario for you:
The US military is still the pre-eminent military force in the world and, with the exception of 2 or 3 countries in particular, would not, in the least, be slowed down by any country. When Americans cannot get what they want. They will take what they want. Everyone knows this. The value of the dollar is propped up by the US military and the American people’s indifference to shedding its own blood to get what it wants.
The new incoming US Administration is perfect for the job since they will do anything to stay in power and have few principles. Never bet against America.
This is not to say that Ron Paul or other like him are wrong. They just didn’t win. Being right doesn’t mean that you will win. The guy that won is a great fit for what has to happen next. Because the rest of the world won’t be ready for the moves he will make.
We have never asked anything of any other nation except for a place to bury our dead. The bills are coming due for other countries and we will be collecting.
A little serious humor,
