Default Re: The Week in Blog: What Comes Around Goes Around

This discussion was great. Sara Robinsonís description of the role that Americaís hubris has played in our economic collapse strikes me as right on the money.

After the collapse of the US dollar (What should we call the new currency by the way?) I envision another great society, with the government stepping in to oversee infrastructure repair and construction of a 1000 additional power plants to eliminate dependence on foreign oil. This means lots of jobs, at much lower salaries and much more productive work; in other words, a return to the 1950ís.

Falling short of this will probably mean a return to the 1930ís.

Good luck to us all!
