Austerity: too late / too unpopular
War: (It worked for Hitler. )
Universal impoverishment: too unpopular
Massive increases in productivity (-i.e. long hours / hard work): too unpopular
Replace the fossil fuel economy with something cheaper / more environmentally-friendly: too popular
Popularity won't be a deciding factor.
Austerity: Unavoidable and necessary - There was too much entitlement, and too much spending. The most socialist countries in Europe are falling
under their entitlement burdens. All countries now have to cut entitlements and spending to survive, and so much debt has built up that the interest
will take decades or centuries to pay off, so austerity is the new normal.
War: Unavoidable and economically purging, reduces the burden of population on the earth, plus there were and will always be wars. Wars will be
different though, there will be no front lines, and who your friend and enemy are will not only be unclear but they will change frequently.
Universal impoverishment - Huh? You mean by raising taxes and suppressing the economy? It's been happening for decades, ever try to buy something
of quality these days? Look at the craftsmanship and materials used in antiques, and compare that to what you buy at Costco or Walmart.
Massive increases in productivity - Definitely unpopular in Greece/France/Spain. Hardworking Germans are very unhappy bailing out lazy Greeks living
off the social system. Hardworking Americans are becoming more and more unhappy about bailing out banks and foreclosed homeowners who knew better.
Replace the fossil fuel economy ... With what, wood? Everything non-fossil is far more expensive and/or poisonous.
Making fossil fuel cheaper is like a tax cut to the poor and middle class, and would greatly boost the economy. Get rid of Gore and his Carbon tax
idiots who are destroying economies by recruiting governments to their 'politically correct' and ill-conceived ideology.
What the world needs now is: Austerity, war, cheaper quality products, fewer social burdens, and cheaper oil. Exactly the opposite of what people
