Let me say this.... it boils down to cost. We outsourced labor jobs to other countries. I am not being mean and saying we are stupid. I am saying
it boils down to materials to build toy's... cars, and computers. If you notice todays market and see Microsoft xbox and many other electronics are
not made in the U.S.
If the economy collapses we got back in cave man age we hunt food and say put to areas where there is food.
I don't think we can just have no economy and have people running machines and maintaining the machines without parts from other countries.
it boils down to materiel costs and if you can get in the U.S if not then I bet other countries wont allow a trade deal they want currency that is
sitll valuable like euros.
You can't just tell people ok if you want to be a rocket scientist go over here your our new team at nasa go build a rocket.
You don't understand the market system on how companies build stuff . Once our economy falls you can't run a business so there is no way someone
will work for you for free they need to feed there family's.
unless we pull together and organize who does what and work together which requires everyone to not be greedy which is impossible I think since I hear
and see alot of crooks in our society.
I am just saying that we will be going back at those time building homes by lakes or animal herds. We mostly would go by lakes and rivers.
The reason is we can't afford to run factories to mass produce food and many other items.
most people work for something in return it could be a meal or money ect ect.
I just still don't see how U.S.A would get to that point since there are many crooks out there.
So I am not saying it because I hate Americans or anything like that I am saying we will be smarter then the cavemen but we are back at that era doing
hunting clothing and building homes.
I don't see how you can get machines running when your broke.
like you suggested that we could start a toy factory in a small town to sell only to the town.
Well to make toys you need resources and money or something to trade on a daily bases.If you find resource in another country then they mostly would
only accept money.
I am just saying it cost money you need someone to mine for raw materials for you to be able to make toys.
I am saying still to start a business like in a small town for only the town you need something to start off by offering people to work at your
business in exchange a cooked meal or something like that.
but if you can't budge people to come work for you then how will you start such a business.
Your nothing thinking about value trades. You will be struggling for food when the economy falls.
When the economy falls the country goes broke. This means everyone can't buy anything.
they have to then hunt and sell food or something to start grounds on.
I am just saying we will start back in the cave man age and slowing build up from there.
we will start small towns. It all boils to everyone's attitude. If we don't plan on working together then we won't get anywhere we will hunt for
food and have build homes and that would be the future life sytle.
The reason I don't think we can start off with small towns running is that we are broke and most of us rely on others since today's environment what
we have is nothing but many millions of other people who helped to create it.
I mean computers, homes, meals, we even have restaurants drive thru fast food.
I am just saying if our economy falls most of US will be lost.
It's like having a a pet lion he grows with you and you feed him and he has nothing to worry about since he is feed without any worries. Once the
owner has to let him go the lion then goes in the jungle lost dosen't know how to caught food for himself since he was born in a world that a man
fed him now without knowing ow to caught food and what is food he is lost.
Today we have it good. Programmers don't need to understand 1010101001 which is what runs the machine they only use human works like if a=1 then
make a cake ect.
we today rely on many people and the past who invented alot of stuff be we today never reinvent the wheel so we lost experience in making those so we
only know the add ons.
I hope you understand what I am saying. I think we will have a hard time to cope with getting food since we will be hungry and no matter how smart
you are if your starving you will not remember alot of things like math or anything you will only think you need to eat something.
I would ask would it be easy to think logically when your starving???
I am just saying homes we have today needs to be kept up to speed without money and limited resources we can't maintain our buildings which would
decay/rott/ what ever you want to call it be the building gets old to a point it will collapse or be unsafe to live in.
the reason I say this is that you don't know how much work it goes into making things.
Building things and making things takes time. But in the meantime you need to eat,be warm , and have a shelter.
that is what human needs to servive. That is what we need to cover first before we can start settling down again to start factories and other
I mean imagine where you live that no one has money do you think the businesses in your area would still be running???
if they stop because everyone is poor then everyone will be hungry and starving. when you are starving and hungry and know there is no supply in your
area you then have to move around to find food anything that would help kill your hunger because at some point you would only think about food where
to get it . You then need a system to figure out how to store food. Then you can sell food now once people around you know your always going to have
food they then don't have to worry about food this would then make free time for many people to focus on building homes and clothing then this slowly
builds back up slowly towards our era now.
This is only if the economy crashes and we become broke.
