I couldn't stop talking in this, my 100th show, so I will be releasing it in two parts.
I have somewhat arbitrarily divided "The Collapse" into four stages.
This show covers the first two stages which I am calling, rather unimaginatively, Pre-collapse and Collapse.
I think stages 1 and 2 are definitely going to happen. Stages 3 and 4 are, in my view, conditional, depending on how deep the collapse goes. Stage 3, Supercollapse, is one big step before stage 4, "Mad Max in America", and these will be the subject of the next show, Episode 100, Part 2.
In each stage I cover a variety of topics including what will happen to:
- Money and credit
- Fuel and utilities
- Medical care
- State and local government
- the Federal government
and other items of interest at each stage of the collapse.
Logic and speculation, combined in the usual TSOP fashion.
