Is Kamal really "TwistyCreek" ...India to supply nurses to USA
CEO crooks: More stock option feeding frenzy

Agreed that most dont know the 1929 crash came after other economies had already tanked, it was global. It was also *worse* in many regions than it was in the US, and if the economy tanks again, India will be hit hard.
But looking at history is ambiguous. Burke, when he started his PBS "Connections" series years ago, started in the machine shed of a modern agribusiness outfit. You could see the huge tractors and combines behind him. He walked over to the breaker box in the back of the shed, flipped the switch to off, and noted that without electricity, this whole operation grinds to a halt.
India to supply nurses to USA 1926

Without electricity, reliable diesel fuel, agribusiness petrochemicals, Debt Loans from the bank to buy all that and the hybrid or GM seed. none of the land would be planted, and there will be famine that makes the Biblical variety look like short rations on an army field trip.
I was born on a farm in 1939, in a House Pictures that was still so crowded with urban refugees, I was born in the upstairs hallway. But back then, when folks lost jobs, they just came back to the farm, and grandpa hooked up the team, plowed a few more acres of garden, and everyone got to eat.
Now, I'm the grandfather, and I dont have a team. Fortunately for me, I only have a few granddaughters. So the little land I do have, would, if push came to shove, feed us all. But the rest of the 99% of urbanites in the US would be f***ed.
Like the US in the 1939's, much of India and China is still peasants living on the land who know how to grow food on it. Even so, those areas are so over populated that things could well spin out of control, and make famine far more widespread than it'd otherwise be.
I dont think the urban academics, bureaucrats, economists, bankers, and the like really get it. The JIT (Just In Time) production systems they have established have no slack if there is an interruption of any of the fundamental resources (like oil) that keeps the whole system running. We usta have warehouses to tide folks over if there was an interruption from a flood, quake, hurricane, etc. Now all the warehouse space is on the back of 18 wheelers on the freeways. The dependence on foreign oil given this system is not only foolish, it is deadly.
