An economic meltdown is becoming more and more unavoidable. While it may not be the classic shtf scenario, it will be a slow motion version of it. Think of the fan being on "low". Here is a recent post from PrepperRecon.com with Nouriel Roubini, economist for the IMF, World Bank, and US Treasury. He speaks on the fiscal cliff and Europe's effect on the US economy. Busy guy, but he still found time to predict the housing bubble.
