Some of the opinions are pretty good, but as usual, we have to note that history does repeat itself. Of course, as my history teacher said: "You had to have been there (the Great Depression)." If anyone remembers post WWI Germany, one can see the similarities today. The biggest difference is that our current inflation and unemployment rates aren't as high. As someone mentioned, war, anarchy, chaos are possible results. Again, take at look at post WWI Germany. The ultimate result was Naziism and Hitler and WWII. I certainly don't want a repeat of that era here.
