Here's the really bad news from the BBC, delivered by Harvey Pitt (chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for two years until 2003):

Daybreak is coming as reflected in The Huffington Post's Economic Honor Roll of foresight:

· Nouriel Roubini, NYU professor of economics: from "The Rising Risk of a Systemic Financial Meltdown: The Twelve Steps to Financial Disaster"
· Warren Buffett, BBC News, "Buffett Warns On Investment 'Time Bomb,'" March 4, 2003
· Nassim Nicholas Taleb, from his book The Black Swan The Impact of the Highly Improbable, April 2007
· Byron Dorgan, Senator (D-ND): New York Times, "Washington's Invisible Hand," September 26, 2008
· Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist: Washington Post, "The Iraq War Will Cost Us $3 Trillion, and Much More," March 9, 2008

* Bush 2.0
* McCain 2.2
* Obama 3.3
