Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've been looking for someone to surrender to, sort of like Peter Sellers in The Mouse That Roared.  I don't think here will be financial collapse, though I do think it will be a pretty severe buckling.  There are huge strengths to the US economy, and there are lots of resources here waiting to get tapped into, of course some folks won't be very happy about the resource redistribution.  I don't think it will come real soon, I expect Obama to get elected and quickly overwhelmed by the disasters lurking-If he learns to fight we might get a Roosevelt style bailout of the capitalists which leaves them in general power with some lesser amount of looting-If he doesn't learn to fight quickly enough, the bosses will run it into the ground and then we might get a financial collpse in a couple of years.
