one reason I don't worry about it, is because I've always wondered what it would be like to live like the first settlers or american pioneers, if the poo really hits the fan, I'm going either east or west nc and have some fun.

Very simple. Reduce the cost of doing business in the US. The jobs left in the first place due to the cost of doing business here.


Yeah you know how you reduce the cost of doing business here? You cut the employee wages. So go ahead and do that see what happens next.

So employees making less money is scarier than employees with no jobs whatsoever?

I will tell you right now as an Appalachian any outsiders will not be given the best hospitality if poo hits the fan. Most of the WNC counties are close knit and will only look out for their own. Asheville has too many pansie ass transplants, you could get lucky here lol!

Places have been doing that. Cutting wages and cutting benefits entirely through temp agencies is the thing to do these days. Getting hired through a temp agency is about the only thing that's usually available for the average Tom, Harry and Joe Shithead around where I live.

One of the big causes of businesses going over seas.. is due to over regulation and extreme taxation. (which is what I'm guessing pantherfan49 was referring to)

India, Brazil and China is doing fine though ....

Yeah I forgot the only overhead in running a business is associated with employee salaries.

Yes they are and lucky for me that is where my family on both sides is and where my land is located. SO when this poo happens Im heading for the hills with my last tank of gas, car full of guns and ammo and all non perishable food where I'll join my kin.
My feeling is that when this happens America will go back to living as tight knit communities of families. Each person using the knowledge they have to better the settlement. From there the country will rebuild one small trade business at a time.
