America's Post-Apocalyptic Future

Luke Ford writes:

Post-apocalyptic movies such as The Road and The Book of Eli give me an eery feeling that I am watching the future of the United States.

I don’t know if we can undo the damage that Obama has wrought.


Economists peddling dire warnings that the world’s number one economy is on the brink of collapse, amid high rates of unemployment and a spiraling public deficit, are flourishing here.

The guru of this doomsday line of thinking may be economist Nouriel Roubini, thrust into the forefront after predicting the chaos wrought by the subprime mortgage crisis and the collapse of the housing bubble.
