Clunkers Everywhere

The endgame of the Keynesian experiment started around 1980

Lots of infrastructure was built around that time.   Money started flowing, taxes started increasing.

Lots of facilities work well for around 30 to 40 years.

All that stuff, the nuke plants, the electrical grid itself is reaching the point of being just too old.   

Look at the amazing increase in severe power outages.

Nukers tell me how the power grid is "robust" and how that it could easily handle a Carrington event, and that things can and would be disconnected in time.

What a bunch of hogwash.    Do you think that a corporation will shut down their grid pre-emptively on a "maybe"   No way.     Swing for the fence and if they strike out....well then the public pays the cost.   

In the case of nukers, that means a good portion of 450 nuke plants will melt down on a massive grid failure.    And that will be the end.   The Mad Max days won't even last long, probably not even 6 months.
