Well I am not an economist but I would agree with this assumption. In my view, the way our economies work has shown to be unsustainable. On the other hand, I tend to be pessimistic by nature, always looking at the glass half empty.

I tried selling the "Things will look bad, but somehow we'll Muddle Along" newsletter, but I couldn't get enough subscribers. Imminent Disaster and call to action get more people to signup. Accuracy is less important than Fear.

Possible titles:

"This time really is different. Really"
"This time I mean it."
"The end of the world is upon us. Edition 9, updated to include the most recent threats."
Or, just simply: "Nothing good will ever happen again for the rest of our lives".
