What Really Happens During Economic Collapse?

Back in 2013, I had the privilege of interviewing Fernando Aguirre, who survived the Argentinian economic collapse that started in 2001. He tells a fascinating story of how quickly municipal water sanitation deteriorated in Buenos Aires after the crisis began.

Fernando’s brother came to visit him from Spain during the crisis—and the first thing that happened is that his brother got sick from drinking the water.

You see, as collapse unfolded in Buenos Aires, maintenance on the water and sewage utility systems deteriorated, and levels of sanitation plummeted among the general public. Illnesses and diseases that had never been seen before in Argentina suddenly showed up—diseases that were more common in places like India or Africa.

The primary cause? We now know that the increased incidence of sickness correlated with decreasing standards of public sanitation.

I haven’t made this podcast recording available to our community for some years, but our country is once again dealing with economic crisis.

If you want to hear the podcast where Fernando speaks candidly and openly about his experiences during the Argentinian collapse:

    This was an excellent, eye opening interview ! Thank you so much and I am so glad that Fernando and his family survived the collapse to share this information with you and you in turn could bring attention to this very real possibility. I remember telling my boys right before 2,011 after they were talking about a history lesson on Pearl Harbor that they did not have to worry America had protected itself from threats on it’s on ground. Then the next day watched all the horror of 9/11/11. Unbelievable. I learned right then to stop the mentality of it only happens to someone else, or another town, country, etc. We are all one world. That is the bottom line, all our people, all our cities, all our towns, all our countries making up this one world. And Fernando and you are right there is no place for pessimism in it:)! Despite failures and trials we need to come together for a the sake of creating a healthier more peaceful world for our next generation:)!

      Hi Belle,

      I know this comment is a little late 🙂 But yes, this conversation with Fernando is more important now that ever before. We are knee deep in the crisis and sinking fast. Many people just don’t realize what’s going on. A positive attitude is definitely the key thing in every life sitatuion.

    I could not hear the questions being asked. Was there something I need to do to make that happen?

    This indeed is eye opening, especially since the 2020 election.

      Hi Durward, yes, it is now happening. The forces causing this have been brewing for many years and now are being seen. The really great news is this can be navigated and wonderful changes can come about. It’s like cleaning a house – its get messy once you get into it, but it gets way better once you are done.
