Are we going to witness Great Depression 2?

Just curious as to how bad people think this will get?

I hope not, but if you're young there would be a good chance at some point in our lives we will see it.....perhaps when the baby boomers are forced to withdraw from the stock market not by choice, but by law?

Seriously bad, maybe not full fledged depression but damn close to it. If it is as bad as I expect the US will come out of it as a 2nd rate power and China will be the worlds economic and military superpower.

I could see us drop our status as a superpower. I think we deserve it after trying to be world police.

China may eclipse us in manpower on the ground, but it doesn't really matter as long as we have nuclear weapons and 6,000 miles of ocean betwixt us.

Maybe economic, but militarily? Just where the hell is China going to get all the navy and air force that would be required to overcome the strength of US forces?

Just remember -- right now, China needs the US, too. They export hundreds of billions of dollars worth of goods to us, and if we stop buying, it won't be all roses over there, either.

It's interesting that people associate a depression with the US losing power. We came out of our first depression and won WW2. That was far worse than anything we've seen, and may ever see again.....

The US and China need each other. Neither country has any real issues between them with the exception of Taiwan that the US agrees is part of China but we support Taiwan's democracy. It's a tricky road but in the end I believe a democratic Taiwan will join China as China develops.

China will be a rival in influence in the Pacific and around the world but between Australia, Japan and others in the region we'll be able to compete.

Have any of you guys been to China? It's developoing rapidly but it's going to take a long time before their people have it anywhere as good as we do as a whole.
