If as I suspect, the financial collapse will be worldwide, it takes everything to another level. What does a country like China do when no other country can afford to buy their exports because their economies are in shambles. Russia has moved their focus to the east. They sit on a ton of natural resources, and can influence other countries with them. What do Germany and France do when Putin says no more natural gas unless you do what I tell you?
The other thing that scares me is the appearance of a “white knight” on the US political scene. Give up your right “temporarily” so I can solve the problems and get you food. Does anyone think the entitlement people will not jump on that.
We certainly live in interesting times.
