How you can profit from the end of civilization: Doomsday Capitalists' winning strategy commentary
Doomsday Capitalists know how to get rich by playing the short-term stock market and ignoring long-term warnings of a global economic collapse. How?

Mix in the Doomsday Capitalists short-term strategy. ... Ignore future consequences because you know you won't be around later, and hope new solutions will emerge through new technologies?.

If you read this article in its entirety, it indeed bizarre. Virtually no investment advice that's legitimate (invest in Monsanto? Chevron? Solar is risky? Hunh?) that I couldn't disembowel in a moment, and virtually no advice based on any kind of Doom scenario. Say, I smell market opportunity!!
