Here’s a one-stop page to explain the “Big Picture” of the current economic crisis. The only thing I really disagree with at all, and only partially, is the climate change crap. I agree we need to reduce/reuse/recycle and all, but not to the detriment of our economies.
Of course, I am vehemently pro-hemp and if industrial hemp was simply legalized, a lot of that carbon-trading snake-oil environmentalism would be irrelevant.
Otherwise, great starting point. The morass of articles on this subject can be rather overwhelming.
