So we need the plague to keep us save from credit crunches?

I think it is good to have a financial sector. But we should have something better than a financial sector that once in a while distroys itself.

How about the Health Services sector?  That might boom during a plague.  Then we could all run over the the Retail Sector with our profits and spend our way back to prosperity.

One problem that a plague may solve is rising unemployment and I think it also helps with entitlement…

"Help" might be a reach unless you are framing it in a Malthusian focus.  The Black Death in the 14th Century was pretty indiscriminate with regards to taking down the proletariat, bourgeoisie and the aristocratic classes (and everything in between).

But stepping back and looking at it from a completely detached perspective it would solve a lot of problems.  And who knows, if the survivors piled all the dead in one place, in a couple of million years they might have new oil reserves.

And then we play the whole symphony all over again…..

Okay, that was bleak.

Name one problem that cannot be attributed to the fact that there are too many people on this planet.

 

food, energy, finance, wars, and all the rest. No problem if no people.

No puns, either.  Dunno if I could live without those.  Oh wait, I wouldn’t be around to miss them.  

Carry on.
