It is very realistic. He may be overly optomistic that the banks will function until 12-26-99 due to panics before then. He also does not discuss martial law, National Guard activitation recently discussed here, and fuel shortages, railroad computer problems etc. which may be why he considered this to be a best case scenario. The Y2k glitches which will cause severe shortages of coal for power plants and the resulting electricity shortages shortly after 1-1-2000. His excellent analysis is posted at http://220.127.116.11/wwwboard13/messages/224
