Global Economic Collapse Thread

One of my favorite recent comments on the coming collapse.

Art Cashin:

"You never bet on the end of the world. That only happens once and the odds of something happening once an eternity are pretty long," he said. "But I think you want to be careful. I think we’re seeing selling across broad asset classes here."
