Matthew Yglesias: Premonitions of Doom
Matthew groks to the Coming of the Perfect Storm.
Check out his list:
1. Oil panic, as people realize that production has reached its all-time peak
2. Dollar crash, as the current account deficit/budget deficit finally persuade Japan and China to stop financing America's luv affair with Wal-Mart.
3. Chemical and Biological Weapons in the hands of Terrorists
4. Avian flu
(Since my thesis about the Coming Perfect Storm relates it to Bushphobia, you may wonder what I think the link to Avian Flu is. Remember last year, when Bush was criticized because the single factory producing flu vaccine was decertified? )
