A particularly gloomy forecast for all of us according to MoneyWeek video
…but aren’t we all DOOMED? Isn’t that the gist?
Looking at trends over the last 100yrs plus what’s happening in the UK and across Europe at present, there is evidence to suggest we are indeed ****ed.
Like I said above, I’ve no idea how much to read into this. There’ll be advocates and sceptics alike is all I can say.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I am, personally, entirely convinced that the current capitalist-feudal system won’t last much longer, it’s a question of if not when it finally falls apart (and more importantly, how it happens). But I’m not particularily bothered about that, because it’s not the only way to run a world, and we’ll figure out something else which might possibly be less crap. Sure, it might not be a lot of fun to live through, but that’s just change in action, you could say the same of the majority of changes that brought us here anyway.Posted 4 years agospacemonkeyMemberhot_fiatSubscriber
I hate economic doomsday prophesiers who make flash animations you can’t skip fwd through: I want to see their conclusion first and then flick though the evidence (so i can go read it and see the counter arguments). The whole scripted / build up thing smacks of telling a story rather than presenting facts. ‘The Motley Fool’ are right buggers for this too.
If you really want to scare yourself, go & Google ‘World3 model’ or get a copy of the latest version of ‘The Limits to Growth’, (Meadows 1972).Posted 4 years agochewkwMember
Common sense really you can’t spend what you do not have. Yes, if this is business then you would have gone bankrupt many times over or probably be hung for owing money.
The welfare state is a dream that will end. Bad concept to start with that encourages people to rely on the state or others for their own livelihood. i.e. pension etc.
I will invest my money in Norway and hopefully their black gold will sustain me for a while when things happen then I will start a Viking invasion … not sure how good they are at handling money but let’s hope not the same as their cousin in Iceland who were caught up with the hype during the “good times”.
If Britain goes bankrupt everyone all over the world will feel the impact regardless of where you are. Unless of course you have farm land to grow food and stockpile of Benelli M4 to fend off zombies attacks.
Nahh … I will just become a zombie to eat you alive …

BUT … you’ll be okay if you subscribe to us and keep us going ….
Thats the gist innit ?
They all want to sell you something regardless and they all have a motive.
Surely if they are giving away 3 issues for free then why not put it on the web for people to judge first, rather than going through the process of having them sent then cancel? I am sure those people who are going to buy their magazine can see that coming so why underestimate people’s intelligent. Who are the marketing persons for them? S/he must be shot!
