Michael Ruppert: Can we shift out of our "economic Ponzi scheme?"

program date: 
Wed, 09/07/2011

"Unless you change how money works, you change nothing. We live in an infinite growth economy, in other words -- a ponzi scheme. Infinite growth on a finite planet is not possible. Those species who cannot get out of their paradigm are doomed to go extinct. Can we disengage from our paradigm?" Host Per Fagering speaks with Michael C. Ruppert, who is probably best known for having accurately predicted the 2008 financial crash, Peak Oil and its impacts. In April of this year he issued a compelling and detailed alert on Collapsenet that warned of a major economic implosion, followed by massive civil unrest starting in late July which is still unfolding and leading to “the collapse of human industrial civilization”.
