Today, we're talking with Mark Wallace, a serial entrepreneur and investor who lives an international lifestyle with his wife Danielle.

For many years, we have been predicting that the die has been cast for economic and political cataclysm for the US economy and, by extension, that of the first world. Not surprisingly, the reaction by most others over the years is that the sun is still shining and that only a "Chicken Little" would be predicting a major storm. During this period, most people have said, "We'll deal with it if it comes and not before."
