Banks Still Not Lending; Number of Problem Banks Rising

What Really Happens When the Sh**t Hits The Fan
Michael Panzner is a well regarded financial adviser who seems to have better insights than most financial commentators. I’ve recently finished reading his book, Financial Armageddon, which, written in early 2008, predicted the financial crisis that marked the beginning of the global financial meltdown and our ongoing economic depression.

Both are highly recommended. In a recent post, Panzner cited a book by Fernando Ferfal Aguirre, titled, The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse, which is based on the actual experience of Argentina over the past 10 years. It’s not a Mad Max scenario, but it isn’t pretty. You can find a summary at Aguirre’s website.
And plenty more where that came from! Check out Tom’s blog and his books.

Our daily bread. Breaking bread together. Bread and butter. These are all common phrases that reflect bread’s foundational role in our diet and in the building of our civilization.
