“Good question. Actual economist I can think of are Jim Rickards, Doug Casey and Tom Woods to some degree. Jim and Doug have both published books on the subject. Primarily Austrian economist who argue we will eventually have to face unavoidable economic hardships. Personally I enjoy listening/reading Thomas E. "Tom" Woods material (all subjects), Lew Rockwell and just about any1 with Ludwig von Mises Institute. Others like Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, Max Keiser, Gerald Celente and Webster Tarpley are all fairly well respected personalities predicting economic collapse.
Believe it or not there are a few good YouTube channels for finance/economics. The Casey Research Channel has some great interviews. I also like Capital Account Channel hosted by Lauren Lyster with the RT network and of course the Mises Institute Channel. Will there be a collapse? I don't know, but I don't think we are making effective changes.”

“The problem goes back farther than Bush. Yet you want to blame Bush and the Republicans? Are you ignorant enough to think that Obama is going to reduce the debt and increase our standard of living? Romney would NOT have been much better. Do you not realize BOTH entrenched parties are growing the gov and our debt? We need serious reform and neither party is offering real solutions. You need to realize that reading/watching mainstream media, which is nothing more than entertainment, isn't going to give you truth.”

“Jerry O'Neil isn't the only person predicting the death of the dollar. There are many economist that agree with O'Neil. The more money we print the higher gold prices will go. We have seen little to no real recovery since the crash. There fed is has no promising options left. Obama is killing the economy. With debt continuing to pile up, how much longer will other nations continue feeding the US gov's addiction b4 they realize we have more debt than Greece and can't possible pay it back?”

“I hadn't seen much economic literature predicting the collapse of the dollar. Which economists? I'd like to read about this.”

“"Jerry O'Neil isn't the only person predicting the death of the dollar." True. Ron Paul is one of the more famous who says the gold standard is good, which is how I know he's a flim-flam man. Since I was old enough to remember (say about three or four years old) I've been hearing people saying the dollar is going to collapse and we should hold gold. I'll grant you there was an impressive bubble in gold after 2007, but the dollar is still with us.”

“Actually the debt would be lower and the recovery would have been faster if the republicans would stop blocking the tax increase. You seem to forget that Bush and the Republicans actually repealed the PayGO legislation. Yet you want to blame Obama for the current state of affairs. When are you going to realize that reading and listening to right wing entertainment is not going to give you the truth.”
