Paul Farrel has been writing about this possibility for some time. His friends are insiders of the "Happy Conspiracy". And he's telling us what they're saying about our future under their breath and behind locked boardroom doors. American and foreign corporate interests now have a controlling interest in deciding American policy. And they are sort of creating this self-fulfilling prophecy by ignoring the headed warnings issued by the President after we basically rewarded them for their decimation of the global and U.S. economy.

The reply to the OP on the WSJ website by someone called Seven gives us an insight into the thinking processes of someone who believes we are in this mess because we deserve to be. His point of view is shared by many participants in this enormous financial fiasco. He is partially right. What he's not acknowledging is that the MSM tricks Americans into believing that living a lifestyle of excess is the STANDARD way of living American. And we've all been duped by the corporate three-card-monty ponzi game. This is domination via mind-control at its very best.

It is crucially important to know that this whole mess is %100 manufactured by greedy corporate behavior putting profit above all else - including the survival of the corporate structure itself. So who are the idiots?

Farrel is saying "head for the hills, stock up food and seeds(!) for a long-term stay and arm yourself to the teeth. This could get very bad."

Exactly nothing will come of any of this. It's all speculation, like all market thought is. You can't guarantee anything on the free market. You never could and nobody can accurately predict any of it.

I think that this is quite obvious by now.

also, if you are thinking about investing, invest in yourself.

The Iranian announcement already prematurely got released. It was the space launch. Surprise! lol

If you read that same article on page 2 it reads,
"True, he did hedge his prediction of the coming anarchy. His odds: 1 in 10. But in an early 2009 Newsweek article, "A Generation of Destruction: Throwing money at the problem and propping up greedy banks is like trying to put out a fire by pouring gasoline on it," Biggs teased us with a bleak scenario: "Great cycles of wealth creation have usually lasted about two generations, or 60 years. Inevitably, unequal riches corrupt and create envy, and they are always followed by a generation of enormous wealth destruction."

I think what the article was getting at is that in order for major changes to take place a major revolution must take place.

I love how they said "the insiders are being told to go to the mountains and grow their own crops" I just think it'd be funnier than watching SNL watching the elites trying to grow vegetation, I haven't ever seen one of them keep a houseplant alive...LMAO!!! That's why they invented plastic and silk foliage...for elites!!!! BWAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAA!!!!

It is very obvious that the stock market is just a house of cards, and that without people with jobs earning money, the markets do not have customers. Markets without customers do not function.

Good luck to those wallstreet fat cats out in the woods and the mountains, they are going to need it.

This is a great article!!! So.... All I need to do is follow some elite snob into the mountains, mount an attack and take over their stash! SUPER!
Thanks for the info!

I'm willing to bet that said "banker" has no idea how to farm, hunt and dress game, employ survival skills etc... My 20 years of training will prove valuable in over-whelming this chump and benefitting from his stash! NICE!

In the short term, most revolutions create difficult times, but in the long term, they pay off enormously.

Britain eventually got their parliament.

France as well.

Germany was doing very well until industrialists financed Hitler's take over of the country. Germany is currently doing pretty good.

Russia went on to become a world power to rival the U.S..

China is now starting to emerge as a world power.

Look at the trends, America is going to go bust really soon. Take a look at these headlines:

Dollar Crisis Looms if US Doesn't Curb Debt: Experts

Forecast: Debt to dwarf GDP

U.S. National Debt Tops Debt Limit

U.S. debt to reach $50 trillion by 2030
Former Treasury official: Nation's liability growing to unmanageable levels

Wave of Debt Payments Facing U.S. Government

Central banks lead subtle shift away from dollar

Weak dollar raises talk of alternative world currency

Dollar's Slide Gives Rise to Calls for New Reserve

I could literally go on and on with more articles. You know what the problem is with saying something over and over again. If it doesn't happen soon after the warning people think you are crying wolf. These warnings have been sounding for years and the economy has not completely collapsed yet, but NOT because it isn't going to. It is because it is being delayed as long as possible. As a result of this delay people don't think it is even going to happen anymore.

Interesting article, although I don't think anyone can accurately predict what's going to happen to the economy. That's not to say nobody has ever made a dead-on accurate prediction. So many people make predictions on money matters that sooner or later a prediction will be right.

Joe Granville predicted Blue Monday dead-on, but he has an overall poor record. However, he was a nut job. Paul Farrell doesn't strike me as a nut job.

I do believe we could still have a global economic meltdown. There's just too much borrowed money out there and there is a risk the whole world financial system could collapse, but how severe the collapse would be is a matter of wide speculation. How the people would react is open to wide speculation as well. I doubt there would be any kind of revolution, but I would like to see an American Renaissance.

VBS.TV seems to be a very good newsite...I would look for the special on North Korea. A very sobering look at how much this country hates the United States. As everyone knows brainwashing and keeping out foreign info is one of the most successful strategies of North Korea and their strangle hold on their citizens. This site appears to be pretty balanced although not much for happy news on it never the less it is worthy of our attention.

The link starts at video number 4 but you can catch the first three through cnn's link

Great post. Let's not forget Ireland. Our lead man Collins was assassinated and we ended up with the republic and the North.

Who loses out if the stock market collapses?

People with lots of money in the stock market.

It seems to me that the rise and fall of the stock market really doesn't affect Mainstreet. It doesn't create jobs, or expand businesses. The current way the stock market is ran, it is just another gambling casino.

Businesses that are making money will continue to make money.

Any growth to the actual markets, where legitimate goods and services are traded, comes from start ups not the big corporations.

If anything, the big corporations do more harm than good, and destroy innovation and new markets as quickly as they can.

Look at the internet revolution. There is a good example of a booming industry destroyed by the stock market and big corporations.

Once the big corporations took over, innovation stopped.

The financial markets are to crash hard, by design. If money is important to you, you could always invest counter-market.

If your 'health' is important to you, try the following experiment. It works. I'm living proof.

Take a picture of yourself at the end of each week for a period of one month. Do nothing but Good unto another during this period of time.

What you will witness is that your face and body will appear much more youthful and vibrant. Your stress will diminish and your immune system will improve making one immune to most illnesses. When One has achieved a 'steady' or 'even' state of mind, he/she will 'glow' as per 'natural' design. The glow is caused by the release of natural hormones released from the various organs within the brain.

It truly 'pays' to be Good unto your neighbor.

Though my human shell is in the late 30s, I appear to be in my early 20's.
It works, because it Is.....and Was, by 'natural' design.
One's appearance Is merely a reflection of one's Soul.

All us normal people can truly do is ride out the storm and pray. Being a glass is half full person, I think that article is not literal in the sense some here might take it. Mad Max need not tune up his vehicles quite yet. It is a bit premature to migrate to the wasteland with a pushcart full of weapons and explosives.

An advantage of 299 to 1 in an apocalyptic scenario makes the Fat Cat's the Underdogs. When money ceases to matter, we have the advantage in a huge way. They know that. The first time they run out of toilet paper or their garden needs weeding they will self destruct.

When push comes to shove, the skills of the common man far outweigh the financial prowess of the elite. A man with a pick and shovel will be worth a hundred Bankers in fact. We who know how to bait a hook or field dress wild game will rule. Be very afraid my Banker friends.
We can survive without you. It is you that needs us.

I hope it is all untrue.

Most interesting article and OP, Starred, flagged and DUGG!

The scenario appears grim beyond words. I find myself wondering about the premise upon which the house of cards was built: Control of the planet via fractional reserve / debt-based commerce.

It was the middlemen that broke the machinery, as usual.

I really hope that we can coalesce without the externalities the corporate mentality has created for us all.
