Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My prediction is that economic activity in large parts of the East is "already extinct, we humans just don't know it yet." I've already seen this pattern in large parts of Wales and Northern England. When traditional industries die off the patterns of our current economy are predicated on people moving. Existing communities (often left composed only of the elderly and some unskilled younger workers) wither as there is much reduced economic demand for people these days...
