I think this dude paenggoy is suffering from long term constipation or maybe he should switch to decaf. Why dont you take some time off and go visit a park and feed the squirrels, you will be amazed at the calming effect of feeding a squirrel. Try reading other magazines like National Geographic or Playboy, it will do you wonders.
About these problems, unfortunately, it's only now that they're cropping up in tandem. Didn't you notice? Oil prices started going up after 2006. The IEA argued that was merely caused by speculation. Six years later, reports reveal that oil production hasn't caught up with demand, and the IEA now states that we're in peak oil. Multiple reports are now coming out, from organizations ranging from the U.S. military to Lloyd's of London, now warning of a drop in oil production which will lead to "massive dislocation" for various economies.
The speculation in turn, based on a build-up of heavy borrowing and spending from 1981 onward, led to a credit crunch in 2008 from which we've seen no recovery, as it turned out the "solution" to a problem caused by heavy borrowing and spending is...to borrow and spend more. So more fuel is added to the fire, leading to high food and oil prices worldwide.
Then, warnings from the 1980s and ignored since then have now been taking place, with massive floods in several parts of the world, which coupled with massive droughts have caused food prices to go up even more, not to mention disruption of manufacturing, food crops, etc., which in turn will contribute to higher prices.
Meanwhile, high prices plus the credit crunch has led to chronic unemployment in many countries, which in turn is leading to significant levels of social crisis: riots, protests, strikes, and even wars. Examples include fallout from the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, strikes in China, riots in various countries in Europe, collapse for Greece, Iceland, and now threatening the rest of PIIGS, etc.
Combinations all of these problems has led to dampened exports for some of the most powerful economies in the world and fears of economic collapse. Organizations including the IMF and WB have warned of more serious problems in the near future.
Given that, I'd say that what we're looking at is definitely not the same as the years before WW2, as some writers have pointed out:
"Welcome Back To 1931"
"Global financial crisis threatens to drag the world back to the 1930s"
but worse. Think of those years, then triple the global population, add deadlier weapons, and make environmental damage worse. Don't forget the ff.
"Sociopaths And Cowards, The Fuel For The Elite"
What will happen during the next few years might make the 1930s look like child's play.
