Civilization? I like that. *jumps in*

So, we could settle a date for this game.

Maybe the Otway Ranges in Australia, for the bonus question.

Train Warrior, Research Hunting and Explore East.

These three together mean we're conquering that little white empire.

This is nice. Don't hesitate to use the world builder to balance the game if you need to, in actions regarding movement or technology.

Each country will do all they can to protect the national industry

Have you seen Pittsburgh or rural Pennsylvania lately? Nice job protecting national industry there... :-\

My best guess is that that's the damage taken from the crysis blow, that causes this kind of measure to be taken. It's been like that everywhere. What I'm saying is that in order to protect the national industry from now on, governments will try to hold their international investments and repair what has been harmed. Nothing is perfect though, since the tools for that are enlargement of the national debt, problems to both import and export, a trust crysis everywhere.
England, for example, has lowed the interest rate to a level that is so low that they will have nearly no guarantee they will be able to use it in the future to control more instability.

One idea, and I don't totally agree with it, is that the economy we see today is the world's economy 'real' size, since the previous years were just a fake inflationary boom, in stock exchanging, and now it's just returned to what it was supposed to be before, like 2003, in a way a lot more growth would be needed to supply everyone with employment and decent services. Of course there is a crysis, it's not something we can deny, but it's a thought to consider.

Not today. But there's currently a tendency that neoliberalism and globalization be weakened or even replaced by another economical order. Each country will do all they can to protect the national industry, and therefore, the organization of the international market will be affected. Globalization is only positive where it happens, though - who stays out of it will go to the bottom of the well very quickly.

The gap between developed nations and undeveloped nations will not cease to grow in such a situation, given that some countries, like the US, Japan and the developed Western Europe (Wait, that is not a country :P) are more likely to have benefits, as well as economies such as China, Russia, Mexico or Brazil will, under the influence of one of the global powers, while countries with no role at all - there are many to be named - stay behind.

A collapse would require the global powers to have their economies failed - which won't happen, even if at the expense of the powerless peoples.

Did anyone think of the irony it was when Faraday said something about crossing the line of the scientifically reasonable?

I know too much about him. Likes to think of wacky stories that are usually set in the future. Also, he has a nose that looks like it's gonna eat me!

Hmm, What did Desmond's old lady mean by 'god help us all'? I mean, what could happen if everyone is not back?
