Numerous factors have been coalescing with increasing speed which will be greatly upending the Post-World War 2 order of things. We are in store for commodity and currency wars...a more rapid unravelling of globalization...regional and even global shortage of food, energy and other key commodities...and more. Economic and military power long-held, primarily, by the U.S. calling most of the shots will erratically give way to a multi-polar world. In all this, of course, there are implications for us as consumers, citizens and investors.
A combination of peril and opportunity confronts us!
