    Economic crisis has started in my country and will continue for years, that's why I am in the IM business.

    IM is worldwide so the impact is limited.

    I think... It's bad.

    Do I get a gold star now?

    Seriously though, there is no "world war" happening at the moment that I know of, and I'm pretty sure there was no such thing as IM in Hitler's day.

    And so, your question is irrelevant.

    Well the last World War happened before the internet, so nobody knows.

    And in an economic downturn there are some industries that take a hit and others that get a boost.

    I would suggest switching to niches that take a boost would be the sensible thing to do in a downturn.

    There will be effects from war etc but remember the web is an extremely efficient and targeted medium which is not going anywhere. The likely hood is that you will see cost savings on printed media before you see savings in web media.

    The next world war will probably blow most of the population off the earth.

    I think that depends on what language you are marketing. If you do IM in English you don't feel any changes in my opinion if you are targeting the world. If you are a local business, this depends on how things in your country are going. And if you are on a foreign language, well, every day more people read and buy in English so...

    Most of the developed countries are well equipped to both fight World War and Protect their citizens with food and shelter. Food and guns will only get you so far when thousands of F-22's are flying over your head and dropping bombs everywhere.

    Instead of watching news and refreshing ATS & GLP forum every second, I'd rank and promote survival kits plus tie a deal with Bear Grylls and sell survival courses.

    I'll put the following video on my VLP.

    If there is going to be another world war it is going to be a culture war vs political ideology. The current conflicts are the puppet masters interested in the gas pipelines.

    We could end all of these stupid wars by increasing of renewable energy and a more informed population.

    However, I'm most worried about what happens with automation kicks in and we have 25% unemployment (usa). Capitalism cannot survive with such high unemployment.

    During world war people will have limited access to internet.

    Also, I believe Russia is preparing for a big war. Just look at their military expenditure increase.. It's way too much for defense. + why the hell Putin wants to control internet access? Jeez!
