IDK, maybe I got out over the tips of my skiis on this, but given how health is affecting the economy and healthcare delivery, I think it's in my purview.

At the beginning of COVID, we talked a fair amount about how if someone knows a catastrophic event is possible, even if they take few if any steps to prepare for it, they are better off, if for no other reasons, that when life goes sideways, they are not surprised. I'm hoping that talking about all this can put you in a spot to possibly be better prepared but mainly that when all this plays out, you will not be surprised.

Although this focuses on the US, the economic problems that will emerge due to both a sick and aging population will come to pass for just about everyone, EU, OZ and NZ included. It's not a matter of if, only when. We could likely mitigate that process if we had a fervor for health on par with what happened when we put people on the moon. I think that's a fantasy, but also why the Healthy Rebellion exists. We are unlikely to help everyone, but by God, we will help who we can.

Let me know what you think on this and if it resonates, let's talk more about the resiliency steps we can all make to be better prepared.
