11-09-05 Eurozone Deathwatch, or “the World’s Population today is 7 Billions, but it may drop to 2…” // Eurozona Deathwatch, o "hoy en día la población mundial es de 7 mil millones, pero puede bajar a 2 ..." // 欧元区临终看护,或“今天的世界人口是7十亿美元,但它可能会下降到2... ...”

Anxiety in Europe is based on dialectics, in the United States on religious apocalyptic visions…

Eurozone Deathwatch
By Mike Whitney
There's no way to overstate the calamity that's unfolding across the Atlantic. The eurozone is imploding.

I have recently been talking and traveling with a number of educated Europeans, some of them involved in information discovery and analysis.

The future script is anybody's guess, but there is a lot of unease and anxiety in Europe about what is going to happen:
·         An Austrian diplomat in the making predicted major changes in the European political systems, since it "simply does not work"...
·         A Swiss well to do, reasonable, family is investing in Africa (Ethiopia, Somalia) and some family members have already moved there, to hedge against potential catastrophic disaster in Europe...
·         German media guys from Berlin predicted that while the world's population today is 7 B, within our lifetime it will be reduced to 2 B...
Needless to say, you meet many Americans, who are staying out of the US, some with all kinds of doomsday predictions... The Americans tend to blend into the mix more apocalyptic, religious narratives... 

The Europeans take it in a more secular, dialectical way...
