"UrbanSurvival.com"
The news stories in the early fall of 1929 were not yet about the Great Depression. Auto sales had peaked, but other business news generally supported the idea that the economy would regain its former strength and the stock market would go on to new heights. Sound familiar? This site is dedicated to the idea that we have experienced our modern analog to the 1929 Crash, except that it has happened in slow motion following Internet market bubble burst after of March 2000. Since then, the reports of "recovery" ring hollow to the masses of unemployed Americans. This site is a gathering point for discussion of the most important economic questions of today: Are we facing a replay of the Great Depression? What are the strategies to insure Urban Survival? Is it 1931 all over again?
