Orlov’s 5 Stages of Collapse

reinventingcollapseDmitryOrlov has written an excellent and entertaining book that I read over the summer. It’s called “Reinventing Collapse.” He describes himself as:

My specialty is in thinking about and, unfortunately, predicting collapse. My method is based on comparison: I watched the Soviet Union collapse, and, since I am also familiar with the details of the situation in the United States, I can make comparisons between these two failed superpowers.

Now he has written about the Five Stages of Collapse. It’s worth a look. [link]

By the mid-90s it was quite clear to me that the US was headed in the same general direction.
 

He says we’ve been in stage 1 since January this year (2008). Some of the other stages are unavoidable.

In his post Orlov talks about how to realistically prepare for what’s coming.
