So Craig do you think that Internet businesses are more likly to survive when the collapse hits
I think there are a lot of assumptions in this thread that have a shaky
foundation. I don`t agree that "the collapse" will happen, in which
case Internet business will continue just as other business will
I`ve heard all about the world currency theory, the "one world
government" conspiracy, and so on and so forth. Yes, they sound
plausible, but the reality of the world isn`t quite that easy to put
into a package.
We live in a time when there`s not only reasoned thought and analysis,
but also catastrophic thinking and miraculous thinking. For the
catastrophic thinkers, it`s easy to see a direct pathway to a total
collapse of all civilization. I don`t think it`s that "easy," so to
speak. Nor does such simplistic advice as we see in books like "The
Secret" work. Life and the universe are far more complex.
I think we`ll see some economic upheavals in the coming times, but
consider the news referenced above about the Chinese economy slowing
down. It was due to fear that orders from the US would slow down. Think
about it: if just a slowdown can disrupt the entire Chinese economy,

I don`t think the "world" would allow the collapse of the US economy,
any more than the US allowed the collapse of the Mexican peso not so

It`s true that valuing the gross national product can introduce all
sorts of over- and under-valued numbers, but the fact is that we don`t
require gold to fundamentally value the entire economy. Like the
environment, societies, and cultures, these are complex sytems, not
closed and simple systems. They can`t be so easily analyzed as people
make it out to be.
