    It didn't last time. Russia is an isolationist country, consuming what it produces. If they go under, they will be all alone except for those parts of central Europe who are dependent on them for natural gas.

    I have said this ever since Putin came to power.
    Putin is a hardcore Soviet whose long term plan is the resurrection of the U.S.S.R. and everything it stood for. He knows the U.S.A. is a paper tiger, as are many of her allies. JMT's

    Could it cause a global financial collapse? Sure as hell could. Civil unrest doesn't respect borders. I can see them exporting that like we export inflation.

    I'm not so certain of all the hype.
    Russians are not like Americans is so many ways....

    1. They still produce things in Russia, including enough food to feed their population and enough fuel to keep their poorly made vehicles running.

    2. When the USSR fell apart and doctors, teacher etc suddenly stopped getting paid - often for months...THEY KEPT GOING TO WORK. This would never happen here.

    3. In Russia, they still have family values in a sense that is not nearly the same as it is with North American youth.

    4. Work ethic for young Russians has not faltered in the same way as North American youth....they don't have a massive sense of entitlement.

    5. There has not been a war on education in Russia in the same way as North America. Russian University students are FAR better educated than us.

    I'm not happy to say it....but it's the truth as I see it.
