David Collum presents his 2012 'Year in Review' ahead of the Mayan non-apocalypse

­Welcome to Capital Account.  Today is the end date of the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar, which some believe marks the end of civilization. Well, since the world hasn’t ended yet, we take the opportunity to reflect on this year’s economic trends and what they might mean for 2013. We talk to Dave Collum, a Cornell chemistry professor known for his financial 'Annual Year in Review,' about what may lie ahead for the coming New Year. He writes his review every December, and this year he's covered everything from broken markets to broke students saddled with ever-increasing debt. The report, released today, is available on Chris Martenson's website: www.peakprosperity.com.
