Well things just about HAVE to fall apart for there to be a new way created to live on this planet in a more diverse economy, with a more green/clean energy bent. Maybe this is exactly the impetus needed.....humans are smart enough to figure this out and I for one dare to have hope.

The funny thing is that a depression won't hurt the poor as much as you might think.The poor are use to doing with less,therefore they can handle it better.

To solve the problem in its entireity, we have to address several major problems.
1) Get rid of FED
2) Scale back govt spending
3) Rewrite ALL the financial laws (in the favor of common sense)
4) Arrest those who got us in this mess and try them in court.
5) Add your own suggestions here.
But those issues are for TOMORROW , as TODAY we must make the tough choice that faces us.
Accept a mild short term depression, in return for a healthy booming economy in the future.
