In case you havent heard. Impending Destruction of the US Economy http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=7508 Questions About the Financial Crisis http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=7510 .....I could add more links, but you should search and research yourself. I am also starting this based on the conversations I have had with a number of people well versed in global economics. From them, and other personal research, the size of the depression could be around 20%(hypothesis,could be more or less in ACTUALITY and not what is said on FOX). Alot of people will say 'not bad' and such, but for someone like myself, and many others who already have alot of debt as well as other liabilities, that 20% reads more like 90% . So I propose this thread so that we may brainstorm on how to protect ourselves during this time period. I am asking all of the people who know something about 'stocks and bonds' and those who are very financially literate for their opinion as well. I'll start.... ....get out of debt at all costs. anyone else?
