As they used to say in the 70’s  “Have a Nice Day!”  

A pundit from Russia explains how his country managed a collapse in the 1990s that some say could be similar to what the U.S. will be experiencing.   He notes that women manage the collapse better than men,  that people who are already poor have an advantage  (maybe  … not sure about that).  

Russians were able to muddle through the collapse by finding ways to manage 1) food, 2) shelter, 3) transportation, and 4) security.

Russian agriculture had long been ruined by collectivization, so people had developed personal kitchen gardens, accessible by public transit.
