    the next 50 to 100 years, will the average American have a higher or a lower standard of living?  State your reasons therein?  Furthermore, will the change in American living standards, either for better or worse, be ineivtable?  According to Gerald Celente, business consultant and economic trend predictor, the economy of America-in fact the world- will become even worse than it is currently.  Mr. Celente furthermore predicted that in the coming years, the economy will be abysmally catastrophic with the majority going under while an extreme few will profit.

      I totally agree: The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is dying of all the radiated food they overly consume.  The YA group will die of electro-magnetic radiation poisoning and many have already contracted brain cancer due to the use of screen technologies. Babies will die for many reasons because their mothers and fathers have forgotten how to live in the concrete world. We will see a higher incidence of babies accidentally left in the back seats of cars and on top of the roofs of cars. Oh wait, we are supposed to be discussing economic scenarios! Wives are required to keep working and the husbands must now play mom.  Oh, where oh, where are the good ol' days when babies had mothers and time to comfortably nurse? The economic situation is going to get worse especially if the American dollar becomes devalued or abandoned by the rest of the world. The approaching negative economic situation is definitely one reason to have no more than two children or no children.  Seriously!
      PS All we can do, is get ready to live like cave men..in caves! and that might be Just Fine! (- for awhile... a short while…say, a week.)
      We are truly doomed, it seems.
