Economic collapse- how possible?

Postby danny1 » Sun Nov 23, 2014 5:46 pm

Our current economic system is built on consumption aka People buying stuff/

We live in a infite world. WWF reckon we need 3 planets to support our lifestyle.

So we need resources to build things for people to buy. We are running out of resources.

Couple this with the fact that UK & US are printing money and debt is out of control.

What do you think? what is gonna happen in our life time or our childrens?

I wouldn't say this was stunning wrong choice of word http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/ ... ed-8157534

Just had a go at the wife when she told a Frozen dolls house is one of the girls presents from grandparents. To go with their other dolls houses. Said the fucking house hasnt grown any in a year and the other one can go to grandparents then.

In other news step teen is crying 'cos she wants a coat but no one will get it for her (she's only got about 10). Its fucking crazy round here, all getting 14 plate cars, iphone6s, macs, residential driving lessons for their 17 and 18ths, one even got a Range Rover, Fucking madness.

China would have to call in all its loans which would bankrupt the world leading to no demand leading to no purchase of Chinese products. Never gonna happen, ponzi scheme will go on ad infinitum.

And if there's money for shite like thisJennifer Lopez - Booty ft. Iggy Azalea: http://youtu.be/nxtIRArhVD4 then we must be awash. I like shagging and youporn as much as the next man but that video is depressing when you think what your daughters are exposed to

capitalism exists in a state far from equilibrium and is supported by the state power structure on the macro scale and on the micro scale by individual's, especially men's, desire for comfort, sex and status
