I suspect this is gonna hurt the rich more than the poor. Poor people are already used to fighting to survive and living on very little. I suspect that very little will change after the collapse, in fact it will probably get worse. The killings and robberies will increase, but hey people gotta put bread on the table.

Warfare, famine and disease will get worse, but I think only the rich will notice a big difference as its affects enter thier neighborhoods. Certainly standards of living will decrease for everyone.

My wife says that people will band together and help eachother. I on the other hand invested in a shotgun and lots of ammo.

I agree with you. haha. Lets wipe this clean and start over. The smart, the hrd working, the people who have an idea of whats going on around them will be able to hold their own.

The rich could even get through it unscathed if they know how to watch their money. But id liek to bottom the market out. I just hope the government wouldn't take too much "Emergency" action if this did happen.

I totaly agree This is part of what i said in another post

Yes it's going to be hard but most of us will live on Let the whole money market fall and start a fresh

Let us go back to the old ways of barter for goods and create a better world and get back intouch with mother earth and let go of being materialistic

We are all equal

Chaos favours the brave, the smart and the innovative (and the thuggish to a certain extent!).

Whatever happens, those with the characteristics above will thrive in my opinion. The smart who are currently working in labs, or designing vehicles etc will adapt in a situation of chaos to be the ones to design survival technology and tools, learn the situation and best apply themselves to survive it.

It is an interesting thought exercise to consider a fire sale and clean slate... but at no point in history has there ever been a clean slate.

The preacher man says it’s the end of time
And the Mississippi River she’s a goin’ dry
The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
And you only get mugged
If you go down town

I live back in the woods, you see
A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I can plow a field all day long
I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
Ain’t too many things these ole boys can’t do
We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Because you can’t starve us out
And you cant makes us run
Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
And we say grace and we say Ma’am
And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

We came from the West Virginia coalmines
And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I had a good friend in New York City
He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
And his taught him to be a businessman
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
And I’d send him some homemade wine

But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
Id love to spit some beechnut in that dudes eyes
And shoot him with my old 45
Cause a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
And we say grace and we say Ma’am
And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

We’re from North California and south Alabam
And little towns all around this land
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Global interest rate cuts. Bank of England 0.5% emergency cut. What are the other rate cuts around the world?

1% emergency cut in Oz with another 1% tipped within months if the economy doesn't show a positive move.

Scary times.
