Terms like "global financial meltdown", "global financial catastrophe", "World War III", "global depression" are becoming standard in describing where we are and where we are headed. The world's central banks are pumping hundreds of billions of dollars into the global economy. Additionally government backed bailouts and arranged sales in the tens and hundreds of billions are now daily events, the total in America alone is now about one trillion dollars; and still the news continues to get worse.
2000 years from now students will study the fall of the American empire.
So take notes.
