Mr. Weiss believes we are headed for much more severe and dire times on all levels, seeingly in the vein of Celente and onther hard-core realpolitik bears. But he tempers his views nicely (as oppposed to artifically) and seems to feel that although we will see much more severity, we won't see a fundamental breakdown of a society. He also makes the astute point that although he belives the US is on a long-term downward trajectory, like any other trend, it won't be a straight line. Thus their will be frequent upticks and false dawns as we rot apart, which will present opporunities for a number of different types of people in different ways.

Overall. an interesting, nuanced view IMHO, Although definitely firlmly facing the grim aspects of the emerging reality, refreshingly hopeful for what can emerge from the coming trial-by-fire.

I think he's right about things getting much worse. I'm not sure why he thinks things won't get crazy though.

After the July 4th maybe the stock market will return to optimism. At that point I think it's time to get out.
