    last time i checked, Mcdonalds is one of the many restaurants growing in the US, i highly doubt any is going to lack food, even if it's healthy and high-calorie.

    McDonalds is healthy? Also food was just an example, I could insert a lot of hardships and get a reasonable statement.

    ex. homes, money, income.

    Not really, i can't see any violent civil war erupting out of this. The most that happens is there is not enough jobs so there is high unemployment....they called this the great depression, and we survived, without killing each other. So this "irrationality" only exists inside your mind. There is no "black plague", there is no "mass starvation", we will get through this just fine, it might take a while, but we will. It's happened before.

    You are correct in assuming that this will probably amount to nothing I'm just talking about a worst case scenario.

    Civil war is highly unlikely.
    In my opinion, the most likely course will be another great depression, albeit one of greater size. Unemployment may hover around 20% or over. There will be great violence like the US in the 90's out of both economic desperation and political aspirations, but not reaching to the size of a civl war

    Let's default and tell China we are not paying them back! WW3 would create a booming economy. Just kidding of course but ya know, it's a thought.

    A rather irrational thought.

    So China would ruin its own economy by attacking its best customer and we would have no one to buy from. Yep, makes sense.
