Priced Right Out of the Market

Here’s the quote you are looking for:

It wasn’t the financial crisis that undermined dysfunctional Arab states, but Asian prosperity. The Arab poor have been priced out of world markets. There is no solution to Egypt’s problems within the horizon of popular expectations. Whether the regime survives or a new one replaces it, the outcome will be a disaster of, well, biblical proportions.

Let’s talk about this. I see a few possible impacts to our Once Great Republic:

1. The same things happens here on a long enough timeline as the rest of the world rockets past us.

2. That “lost generation” of Arabs finds a way to arm up and goes after each other and western civ with a nuclear vengeance.

What is clear to me, at this moment, is we are entering into a completely new game – actually a new sport. Even the end goal has changed and what the future is trending to will look very little like the past.
