(Headline seen in an advertisement supplement for a major bank in the newspaper).
You don't need to be an economist to see that the economic structure of our world, as well as our social structure (since it is based on economics) is falling apart.
If you don't believe me, talk to someone who lived through the 1920s and the Great Depression of the 30's. Sure they're probably at least 80 years old, but most likely not as dumb as you think. Why are banks throwing credit cards at anyone who will take them?
The stock market will crash very soon, and it will not be because of lack of 'confidence' in the market. The reason will be because people will no longer be able to afford to buy gasoline to drive to work and earn a living. These average people will not be able to buy goods any longer, and no matter how much the global corporations try to make it look like they are still selling things, no one will give their money to them any more.
It's going to happen sooner than we think.
