It means there will be something akin to the depression of 1929. People didn't need to eat their children then. They got by through massive amounts of government intervention in the economy and in their lives. The unfettered capitalism monster has gorged itself and it now needs to be slain and replaced with responsible capitalism. Earning your rewards needs to replace economic growth that only exists on paper. Moral and ethical responsibility and prudence is key to the future. It's amazing that after 1929 it was allowed to happen again.

What then, do we eat our children?
I've just been to Sarajevo. 12 years ago they had a 4 year siege on their city lifted - a city that had but one paltry tunnel linking it to the outside world for the entire length of the siege. 80,000 people died and hunger, thirst and absence of any form of comfort plagued the citizens of the city. If they can come through that and rebuild what is now a vibrant city then we can all stop crying and ringing the domesday bell.
