I found this Vanity Fair article by Joseph Stiglitz from a link on Chris Martenson's blog. An interesting take on where we are and how we got here--and why things won't be getting much better for the vast majority of us any times soon.
Seeking Alpha has this little piece describing the problem of inflation in Argentina which has me wondering whether Argentina will be the next Zimbabwe and whether we will be going that route also. It is interesting that the first thing governments seem to do is cook the books to make a dangerous economic situation seem less dangerous. Notice how we haven't had any inflation for the last two years?
