But in his Armageddon and Opportunity at the Same Time post, Addison Wiggin tempered that enthusiasm. Now, Business Insider is starting to talk about an imminent recovery. (See links below.) So, the rich will get richer, and savvy investors will find lots of opportunities. But outside of a few industries and professions, don't expect a lot of new high paying jobs to relieve most Americans of their debts or the impact of the high inflation that will follow the collapse of the American dollar.
