My daughter and I read science fiction. One of the most common themes in recent books is the world wide great collapse. I'm beginning to think that we are facing the beginnings of that economic collapse. It's spreading around the world. My bigger fear is that as the economies collapse, a few countries will ban together to a war to get us out of it. Think about it.... WWII got us out of the Great Depression.
Or will entrepreneurs get us out of the problem with great new inventions? Will the creative brains go into engineering and science instead of investment banking?
