This is the name of the latest article (Oct. 7) written by a man that knows far more about the world economics than most. He has expressed his opinions and they could help you make decisions. Tell me what you think ? www.pei-intl.com

It doesn't end here.
It ends over there. There's a "T"remendous difference between here and there. 8<)

That should be "the FINANCIAL world ends here". Especially for hedge funds and multi-billionaires.
It's all happened before (Indonesia today; 1929; 1920 Germany; many times before). Surprisingly the real world has always found a way to carry on. I'm not saying it stays pleasant, but "ends here" ... NOT!

Funny, we always find a way to carry on. I really don't think Y2K will be the end of Western Civilization, just a bump in the road. I do think a lot of small businesses are going to have a very hard time next year unless they get the lead out. But Civilization does not depend on business, the definition includes using metals, education, and the existence of a literate class. Don't see any of that going away, no matter what happens.

I can see our economic vehicle hitting that bump in the road--
Both front tires blow out, vehicle careens wildly out of control, plunges off a cliff, bounces and rolls numerous times until it explodes at the bottom.
The literate ones at the bottom of the cliff (who had subscriptions to Popular Mechanics) can use the pieces of metal.
