    There is very strong evidence to demonstrate, and not merely to predict that the three biggest components of the healthcare establishement will suffer the second catastrophic event, enter a state of extreme instability, extreme vulnerability to relatively minor events, and suddenly collapse. In fact, it has been extensively demonstrated that the industry will suddenly, and violently collapse because of the exact same phenomena that caused the recent financial meltdown described as the worst since the Great Depression. The industry will collapse because of the same exact–mathematically homologous–phenomena that cause the Roman Empire to suddenly collapse (c. 500 AD), and numerous other industries to collapse, suddenly. Healthcare reform has diverted national attention away from the real story; Yes, it’s true: there are four ways an industry can “fail” one way is to collapse. Gross mismanagement for decades and a little neglect is going to cause great mischief.
    This project conclusively demonstrated that there is a time line, and time is rapidly running out.
