Things can only get worse

Failing banks, plunging stock markets, skyrocketing inflation: Global Economic Meltdown is at hand. As credit becomes even dearer and the pound becomes still weaker, we are poised to witness nothing less than the end of human ... [read more]

Morgan W Clist is a journalist and author of Obama Is From Mars, Hillary Is From Venus.

That's a bit dramatic, isn't it?

Mr Clist has a tendency to over-egg the pudding. This is a man who still claims that Hurricane Katrina was faked, after all, and that the US govt concealed the extent of global warming by secretly painting part of Canada white.

I have offered to produce documentary evidence of the latter to anyone who can guarantee my safety, but there have been no takers. What does that tell you?

MegaDave at 0858 today

That everyone wants something bad to happen to you.

MorganWClist at 0907 today

Sadly we no longer have to worry about any of that. Global Economic Meltdown is our only problem now.

Well I wish it would hurry up and happen. All my tins of survival food are getting near their sell-by date.

BigDorrit at 0918 today

Global Economic Meltdown - what does that even mean?

MorganWClist at 0924 today

Without getting too technical about it, it simply means that your money is dying.

So what should we be investing in now? Gold? Utilities?

liberati at 0943 today

What do you mean - large refineries? International energy conglomerates?

MorganWClist at 0956 today

I mean petrol. Buy as much as you can afford, put it in jerry cans and bury them in the woods. You'll thank me.

Fundamentally the economy is stable. This credit crisis is, in my opinion, a long overdue correction. It will be painful, but it's not the Great Depression.

JaneT at 1013 today

That's reassuring, Chris, but my 2 year fixed mortgage deal comes to an end in May. What should I do?

MorganWClist at 1024 today

Lock your door, push the keys through your bank's letterbox and head for a warmer climate. Buy a tent, collect rainwater, make soup from grass.

Daisy88 at 1027 today

I don't know who to believe!!!!

MorganWClist: I'm intrigued by the title of your latest book, Obama Is From Mars, Hillary Is From Venus. What does it mean exactly?

MorganWClist at 1036 today

Exactly that. What could be clearer?

liberati at 1044 today

Are you saying that although they come from the same political tradition, their approaches are vastly different and coloured by fundamentals such as gender, background and race?

MorganWClist at 1053 today

No, I'm saying that Obama is from Mars and Hillary is from Venus. I've got pictures of them without their skin on.
