“An economic collapse this long seemed like something that was entirely out of the question. It was entirely unpredictable. I would have expected a pandemics or a coup detat long before this hungry zombie-like scenario.”
It truly seems like an impossible scenario, what has happened in Venezuela. So much for those who say it can’t happen ‘here.’ It can happen. All it takes is the right sorts in charge.
And those in charge of the “collapse” are not in government. THAT is the key. You need to know where to look, and what to look for.
A country goes bankrupt the same way a person does: A little at a time. Then all of a sudden.
