by Charles Hugh Smith
This is how empires collapse: one complicit participant at a time.
Before an empire collapses, it first erodes from within. The collapse may appear sudden, but the processes of internal rot hollowed out the resilience, resolve, purpose and vitality of the empire long before its final implosion.

I have long identified diminishing returns as a key dynamic in the current unraveling of the Status Quo. Why is this so? We can summarize diminishing returns as dumping more money, capital, energy and effort into a system just to keep the output from falling to zero.
But as the costs of keeping the system from imploding rise, they [...]

http://usawatchdog.com/true-scale-of-… - Macroeconomic researcher Rob Kirby thinks the global economy is in deep trouble. What is the problem? Kirby contends, “The real problem is with the money itself. We need to revert back to real capitalism which is real weights and measures and honest commerce.

Why is this happening? Kirby thinks, “It doesn’t really matter who occupies the [...]
