    thanks for that posting. I think some of the site's imagery may scare some people away but all in all it's good advice. I'm removed from the system as much as I can be at the moment and in doing so, I expect collapse, so it's not going to come as a shock to me. If you educate yourself on what "infinite growth on a finite planet" means...it becomes crystal clear.

    This video series is long and it comes from a Mathematician so he does a good job to demystify economics ... http://www.peakprosperity.com/forum/...rowth-paradigm

    Could be because it is a site devoted to future stars of Doomsday Preppers.

    WE talking about Peak Prosperity ? or the first posted link made by wavehog?
    Doomsday-ers, esp coming from some biblical angle, are worthy of being scoffed at. However, those that point out that ponzi schemes can't go on forever and cite current and historical events to validate their claims shouldn't be.

    anyone who thinks infinite growth on an finite planet is possible is either a fool or an economist...unless we start mining and farming on asteroids, things are going to get ugly when the growth curve hits K

    You hear that noise? that's Alaric Balth of the Visigoths sharpening his sword

    good visual sir MIS.
    I know this registered with you MIS, but
    did anyone else get a cold shiver going down their back when Greenspan so nonchalantly mentioned that he or nobody else could "guarantee the purchasing power" of the US dollar in the future? That's really the only point the video needed to make imo. Doomsday preppers or not...people have got to get a grip on what Governments (all of them) do to a nations money over time. That motherf^cker.
