My question is, how do you think the global systemic collapse will affect a third world country? I would tend to think since they have already developed a lifestyle free from consumerism the effects will be not as drastic or take a lot longer to feel. Especially away from city centers. What are your thoughts?
When the SHTF i am ready to walk away from everything and jump on a plane, i need to be careful not to wait to long in case the airlines cease to operate.

Nations that are already poor are less affected by reccession and currency fluctuations than rich nations. Poorer nations economies are less vulnerable to the effect of oil on their economies.
