Post about economic breakdown process
I’m looking for a link posted recently under Chris’s blog, which had a detailed and chilling description of how an economy changes as it progresses deeper into depression.
It said things like, public utility services stop, gas and electricity run out, people have to boil water to have short hot showers, available food is mainly carbohydrates and little protein, etc, etc. I think it may also have used an example of a country that went through this process.
Was it the article comparing the U.S. breakdown to that of the U.S.S.R.? I’ll go find it real quick…I think that’s it though.
I believe "Closing the ‘Collapse Gap’: the USSR was better prepared for collapse than the US" is what you’re referring to. Here’s the link:
It can be found under Learn->Essential Articles, under the "Risks to US Monetary System" heading.
Hope this is it!
Thanks Futuo. That’s not the one, but it did make me remember that the article was written by a Russian, who described a Russian experience, and it’s probably the same guy who wrote the one in your link. The article I read did not have slides, it was just text. I’ll do a search on Dmitry Orlov. Thanks.
Found it! Google:
"Post-Soviet Lessons for a Post-American Century" by Dmitry Orlov
It seems to have 3 parts.
Awesome! Glad we got it =]
Or didn’t you know that we are all actually batteries?
