Thank Christ I'm not in any of them, the US, mainland Europe, Russia, China or Australia. I'll be chilling out here on my little island trying to avoid rouge troupes of cannibals or christian missionaries I guess.

Since when has England been a country with very little food? We might not have the HUGE portions americans have but thats not because we dont have much food the man in the link talks rubbish.

The UK barely posses the ability to produce an amount of food necessary to support its population. I think that's what the point is. And the UK is hardly alone. Many nations do not possess the ability to produce the requisite amount of food to feed its population. In fact, very few can.

The first line of the article is...

The dollar collapse will be the single largest event in human history.

Er, no it won't. If the dollar collapsed, the world would readjust. Both the Euro and Yen are powerful currencies. The article is written by someone who (a) does not understand how the world works and (b) has not a clue what "England" is. I assume he meant the UK which is (er) not England. The author needs to go for a walk in the real world.

Unimpressed by a shoddy article that tries to make the fiction sound factual – and fails.

... and what the hell is the giant vampire squids of the Anglo-American Empire? Flowery language, otherwise tosh.

Regards

I'm not even going to view the link for one simple reason : the list states "England". The author obviously hasn't a clue !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UK, Britain, Scotland, England, Wales, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland. Replace "England" with the correct one given the context of the article.........

But the dollar won't collapse...according to a lot of folks on ats, Ron Paul will get elected and save the dollar and most of the visible universe from destruction.

the US has changed currencies many times, and if we were to change it again, loose it, come up with a whole new idea or what have you .. it wouldn't be the end of the World. People wouldn't starve. There would undoubtedly be an economic depression .. but only a Keynesian would think that's the end of the World.

While I agree the article was not all that well written and maybe his reference to England instead of UK is improper but the point of the article is still important. The global economy is reliant on the US dollar. Even though other major world currencies are starting to take hold it will not eliminate the problems we'll will all inevitably face when the US dollar collapses.

When the dollar does collapse then our food supply will be affected. When the trucking companies that ship your food from a 1000 miles away goes bankrupt from an economic meltdown - who's going to bring your food to your grocery store? The problem is real, history repeats it self. Anyone able to name an empire throughout all of history that has has never collapsed? Everyone needs to stop assuming that just because you are currently a global powerhouse doesn't mean you will always be. Why is it so hard to believe this could happen?

Is the collapse really that inevitable now the US has stated they aren't going with QE3? Thought this was the biggest factor in a collapse since it was announced precious metals have dropped in price significantly.

So I mainly wonder what will cause it as the main factor has now disappeared. So basically the debt that America owes when is it due? is there a due date? I know debt has gone above Americas GDP but basically there are easy cuts that can be made so will America cut spending to avoid default?

While I don't intend to be in any of those places for more than a weekend, the article was total crap. Crappily written and based on crappy premises with a crappy understanding of economics. The author is filled with glee that "It's all coming down, baby", but without any rationale.

1. Civilization will not collapse just because the dollar does.
Some of us would argue that the world is shifting to a de facto gold standard, as predicted by Charles De Gaulle 50 years ago. It's not like dollars will expire next wednesday and thus all credit will grind to a halt. On the contrary, it is CREDIT which evaporates in a financial collapse---which, if anything, would magnify the value of the dollar, not wreck it. The collapse of Knickerbocker bank and the 1907 panic that began in New York is instructive in this regard, for serious students of economics.

2. Coastal areas will survive an economic collapse better than inland areas.
A famous British essay detailed how it is cheaper to ship a 25kg parcel from Hong Kong to London, than it is to ship the same parcel from London overland to Glasgow. Seaborne freight is the most economically effective means of transport. In an economic collapse, new networks will assert themselves in coastal areas first. The fact that global trade and supertankers "suck up all the air in the room" doesn't change the fact that sail power is free, and practically anyone with a boat or raft can go into the import/export business, especially if governments cannot assert themselves in a given area.

3. The article makes absolutely NO assertions about why the given cities are dangerous
Other than the fact that they are filled with dangerous idiots, the listed urban areas are not discussed at all from a tactical or survivalist view. While Israel depends on US/UK financial support, it's short term security rests solely in its own hands. If Syria could successfully invade Israel, it would have done so by now; the fact that it has tried and failed repeatedly, as have the other Arab states, argues against Israel's instantaneous demise. And if the dollar collapsed, what would syria and iran be doing for revenue? Iran cannot even refine its own crude, by the way---it has to import finished gasoline from it's anglo-friendly neighbors. In a financial collapse, the arab street might be even more of a basket case than Isreal; especially considering Israel's war preparations.

.Washington DC has a massive military presence all around it. will it really succumb to riots any worse than Chicago or Paris?

The Dollar is not going to collapse. Its collapse is predicted all the time. Th dollar is the reserve currency of the world and the US is the worlds largest economy and most powerful nation. The Dollar is not going anywhere. Why does all this dommer propaganda keep coming up ?

The farther from the land you are, the worse its going to be for you.

The more steps between you and the actual production of your food, and the harder its going to be.

In any crisis, big cities (where you cannot produce your own food and the population density is high) are probably not the best places to be. But that article is crap. Not surprised to see links to the "alien graveyard" and "Californias upcoming mega quake" articles at the bottom. (If you like this, here's some more crap...)

well you might be right there gorgi....
someday..
if you go the opposite philosophical direction in which you are going in now...

(like the weatherbabes...who are wrong statistically more than they are correct..eh?
take the opposte view, and the odds are better you might be right..


Besides the fed types saying they will dump the dollar..
for something like a TRULY global currency

Ron Paul: The Elite Want A Global Paper Currency run by the UN and IMF (2/3) - 8/21/2009

www.youtube.com...

The U$ debt is unpayable
that is usually a sign of an impending "something bad"

Iraq and Iran and Libya and JFK and Licoln have all been trashed for going with HARD or at least debt free issuences / currencies....
Russian and China are largely out of the dollar and have dumped most of the debt too, and are trading in Yaun and rubles...
The fed(up) is buying up 80 percent of the US debt....

yep no collapse there....

Thanks to the globalization and the giant vampire squids of the Anglo-American Empire,the dollar is the world’s reserve currency.


I'm sorry, what? No seriously what?

What is this guy talking about? There's a huge leap here somewhere and I don't quite get his point.

The US debt does not really have to be payable. We have had a national debt since the 1800''s and we are the super power. Very strange.

Quoting Ron Paul is not helping you. Ron Paul is full of it and has no idea what he is talking about. He has proven that we his wrong so many times. He repeats the same tired lines over and over and he is never right.
