That is actually a viable idea. Going 'Galt' to the extent that you can still sustain yourself and your family, but otherwise withdrawing from this crooked excuse for free market capitalism. If enough people, small businesses and large business actually 'go Galt', it would surely get SOMEONE'S attention pretty quickly. The investors have already done it by keeping their money out of circulation and not investing it at all.
I think it could work, but John is the financial wizard, and I'd defer to his analysis.
