One "doomsday" approach deserves another.


The United States will colonize some desert regions prior to becoming a "5th world country", and will have the support of about 200, 000,000 Americans.


Let the nuking begin.





Build their gallows high

"All investors and credit holders would pull out of the USA market - including from Wall Street and American industries. Americans could no longer afford to buy things, so have zero market value for investors..."

I'm no economist...but

Do you know how incestuous the intertwined corporations are throughout the world? How much American multi's own of other multi's who own other multi's?

How much do other countries stand to lose if they dump? Insanity.

Iran can dream but this won't happen.

We can and do produce our own, own our own, and stockpile. We manufacture and own the financial arena.

How would Iran like it if we devalued our buck and replaced the whole shebang with gold? Might be interesting to see other fiats crash and the price of gold go skyrocketing. That would kill the economy of the entire world.

Or

Bifurcate the currancy and have one for that hemisphere and a new regional currancy for the South, Central and North American region.

Or

other things. War is one thing. Screwing the bankers is another and between the bankers and Islam, the bankers will always win. In fact, the bankers win...period.

Instant response...having not thought it through, but to offer alternate analysis:

Question: Wouldn't a devalued dollar - especially significant reduction - trigger massive purchases by companies and consumers in other countries? Wouldn't we be flooded with tourists? Both these would create employment -not eliminate it. (Purchasers of Chinese goods would switch their purchase orders to any U.S. manufacturer who could produce.)

Central banks and investors holding dollar based assets would initially buy up dollars to prevent just the catastrophe you describe.

The Oil Reserves stored in Louisiana would be released to initially offset the adjustment to the Euro.

The Federal Reserve would withdraw trillions of U.S. currency from circulation.

U.S. Government would release certificates to all individuals to use for obtaining food/necessities.

Illegal immigrants would all pack up and go home - where their own money was worth more. :o)

Just random thoughts. I DID take Economics in college. But as I recall it was Fall Semester thus football season.So I cut Friday classes and was hung over on Monday. Keep this in mind as you evaluate my expertise. Also, I DID stay in a Holiday Day Inn Express last night! :o)

Oh, one more thing: That gold bracelet you gave your wife for her birthday? You could live off the proceeds from the sale of it for a year!

what happened in Germany after World War II, where you needed a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread!

For the record, that was after WWI. Weimar Republic.

"The cost of everything in America would spiral upward similar to what happened in Germany after World War II, where you needed a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread!"

Or, it would demonetise the debt, allowing a pay off to creditors with dollars not worth two cents each. Then after the blood bath, reissue a new currency.

If the trend from the Dollar to the Euro happens too abruptly, we in the USA can look to having some 200 MILLION Americans starving in the streets within a short time frame.

Doubtful this would happen. There would be a better chance of the U.S. using nuclear blackmail to stay afloat.
