Some of those countries are 3rd world countries , and count for little in the big picture one way , or the other . Had to laugh at Ukraine , its a war zone , no surprises there . A good part of the able bodied work force , in the form of working age men are fleeing the country in order to avoid being drafted into the meat grinder ……….they dont count . That conflict would have been long over by now if we and the EU would stop propping up Porchenko . What does Egypt produce other than tourism ? Not a lot . Turkey ? besides cigarettes and jihadists , what else do they make that has an impact on the world stage ? Not much . Columbia ? I guess the legit business are down , but their drug cartels are doing just fine . Nigeria and Kenya ? PLEASE!!!!!!!!! besides having a lot of people nobody wants , whats there that we cant live without ? I agree about it being a world wide collapse . Some countries will weather it better than others . We are in for a rude awakening , China probably doesnt care all that much . If they have made plans to keep vital internal mechanisms going , and it looks like they have , then they most likely look at the drop in population as a positive . It may even be planned . Third world countries are third world countries , they will continue to be poor in ” good Times ” or bad , for the peasant , little will change . Sort of like old Ronnies theory of ” trickle down economics ” , it didnt work , because of the greed factor .
