I've always wanted to see the 1970s version of NYC. So I'll stay here and wait for something similar to it to roll through the City.

Oh Lord, why do people panic over anything?? I'm guessing some of you are the same ones that ran to the gas stations before Ike hit Texas because we were going to run out of gas. The sky is falling.

Any large metropolitan area will be bad. When people have no money and need basics they will turn to means they would not have considered. And no city will be left out of the carnage.

when the cities are empty. . . . . . where do you think they will turn next?

I think Oklahoma City is on that list as well. We have low unemployment, and we didn't get involved in the housing bubble, so our foreclosures are pretty low as well.

Mexico. A small ltown in a fairly fertile part of Mexico already knows how to live without very much high-tech energy, and most peolple are right now getting along OK without private cars. Most places require neither heating or air-con. Enough food is grown nearby that people will not need to depend on shipping or transport to get food. Very few people have had to go into debt in order to maintain their current standard of living. Beat the rush---when the meltdown comes, there will be millions of American wetabcks trying to get south across the border.
