Financial Sense : http://www.financialsense.com/fsu/editorials/2008/0107c.html Restructuring America's Suburban Dream Financial Sense - Tue, 01/08/2008 - 06:55 The article was Rated 5 (Best!) by AKrowne in Economics, Society, Government, Culture on Tue Jan 08, 2008. He called it: An awesome comprehensive piece on the "American predicament." His Summary: "Americans are not prepared for the coming crunch, and the leading politicians are focussed on other issues. Most politicians are content to leave the main fictions unchallenged. They know that negative campaiging rarely succeeds. Few have the courage to make the call to sacrifice and change of lifestyle that is needed. So we may find ourselves sleep-walking when the crisis hits. Ultimately, a big shock may be the only thing that will get the average voter worried enough to demand that their leaders start to address the root problem : America's traditional yearning for the a suburban way of life, which has left the country with a mammoth and unsustainable appetite for oil." / see: http://www.furl.net/item/29707103 (In Good company on DollarCollapse): Best of the Web The Suburban Dream – Michael Hampton Rodney Dangerfield of Currencies – Rob Peebles $53 Trillion and Growing – James Turk Truly Efficient Market? – Brian Pretti In 2008 Gold Should Glitter – James Turk In 2008, the System Breaks – Jim Willie Lennar Insolvent – Reggie Middleton How to Make 315% – Eric Janszen (In Good company on FSU): Financial Sense University Editorials 01/10 Stagflation, gold, currencies and oil by Christopher Laird 01/10 $2100 a barrel Frappucino by Saif Lalani 01/09 2008: Year of Reckoning? by Brent Harmes 01/09 Three Events to Expect in 2008 by Joseph Dancy 01/09 Gold hits new all-time highs by David Shvartsman 01/09 Gold Breaks All Records!!! by David Vaughn 01/09 Where is the Best Place to Be Invested Now? by Boris Sobolev 01/08 2008: A Tale of Two Halves by Hans Wagner 01/08 Scrap in the Time of Scarcity by Richard Karn 01/07 Restructuring America's Suburban Dream by Michael Hampton 01/07 Been There, Done That by Dominick Also picked up by: / see: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discu...dress=114x32295 : chatboard / see: http://hearmythunder.org/cgi-bin/index.cgi...news&id=381 / see: http://www.rescue-us.org/new/aggregator/categories/7?page=1 / see: http://www.biiwii.com/analysis.htm / see: http://www.cathinfo.com/bb/index.php?a=topic&t=4036 Rascist reaction : http://www.originaldissent.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5320 What is this old outmoded concept?
