The US economy has come to a standstill, satellite imagery shows
“Satellite imagery combined with other photographic evidence and alternative data sources give a stark look at the U.S. situation: Airplanes are parked on unused runways, the busiest highways are empty during rush hour times, resorts have become ghost towns, ports are seeing sharp drops in shipping activity and more.”
USAGOLD note: I’ve visited my share of ghost towns in the Rocky Mountains all products of a gold or silver rush gone bust. A ghost country is something else again. We can only hope, as we have said several times in the past, that this all fades to memory in quick fashion.
