Developing countries already struggling under the weight of decades of piled up public and foreign debt will see political upheaval of levels never seen before.
When all certainties disappear, the armed way will be the only way. Former US President James Carter stated once during a visit to Central America that there would be no guerrillas if people had something to live for.
