These third world nations are just the first places to erupt in social unrest. Which is exactly what you would expect.
I went out today to get some washed potatos. The supermarket fruit&vegetable section looked like there was an air raid siren blaring. Half the produce was cleaned out and what was left looked like it had gag price stickers from a Monty Python skit. The grocer wanted $12.00 for a bag of potatos that appeared to have been salvaged off a warehouse floor somewhere.
As for the rest of the store and all the packaged goods, that was like Vault-Co on crack.
Nobody is more scared than I am when something I have predicted comes true. It always shocks the living hell out of me. I just call'em like I see'em and it's still a fright when I realize it was really that easy to get right.
