Marketwatch. The gist of the story is that Barton Biggs see the Bio at Wikipedia says the economic and possibly societal end is upon us.
A well know and respected wall street investor and fund manager is advising the big money investors to make as much money as they can now and damn the consequences because a complete economic collapse is imminent.
Quote " His advice: Make tons of money. Buy an isolated farm in the mountains. Protect family against the barbarians: "Your safe haven must be self-sufficient and capable of growing some kind of food ... It should be well-stocked with seed, fertilizer, canned food, wine, medicine, clothes, etc. Think Swiss Family Robinson."
It is a bit startling to see this opinion from one of the big money wall street guys. Give it a look its an eye opener.
