    Why Our Current Way of Living Has No Future

    All of the sordid and spellbinding rackets working their hoodoo on the financial scene have obscured a whole other dimension of the fiasco that America finds itself in, namely the way we have arranged the logistics of everyday life on our landscape – the tragedy of Suburbia.

    I call it a tragedy because it represents a sequence of extremely unfortunate choices made by our society over several generations. History will not forgive the excuses we make for ourselves, nor will it shed a tear for the tribulations we will induce for ourselves by living this way. History may, however, draw attention to our remarkable lack of a sense of consequence in transforming this lovely, beckoning New World continent into a wilderness of free parking.

    A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
    Link:  Year of the Tiger

    Executive Summary

    • China is pursuing an active policy of resource mercantilism.
    • China appears to be strategically preparing for resource scarcity.
    • China’s auto sales have surpassed those of the US.
    • This year China also edged out Germany as the top exporter.
    • As China’s economy expands, its energy use increases.
    • The US should be stewarding its remaining resources and transitioning deliberately to a very different economic model, but instead we are wasting both time and resources.

    No, this report has nothing to do with golfing.  In the Chinese calendar, 2010 is the Year of the Tiger.
