The Whimpering Twenties


In the US, we refer to the 1920’s as “The Roaring Twenties.” I’m not sure if anybody actually called it that at the time, but supposedly it was a time of expansion and partying until The Great Depression kicked in late in that decade.

A hundred years later, we started our 20’s off with a pandemic and the most expensive & vicious & precarious presidential election in our nation’s history. This is also the year that over 20% of all the US Dollars ever to exist were magically created. Whee 20’s!

I like to keep an eye out for what’s next, as you likely know if you know me. Here are some of the things we clearly can expect of the USA in what I’m calling our Whimpering Twenties. Because that’s what I think is in store.

But it’s not just about what I think. Here’s what is:

There’s a lot of stuff we don’t know about that will likely happen too, of course. But keep in mind that aside from the joke in 2022, each of these things are very very real. This is not me making any projections here, follow the links to see these very credible estimates. These are the known knowns, so we can’t plead surprise on these.

I urge you to plan accordingly, as I do.
