    will be places his "people" will be able to find or build where he will be insulated from the effects of the shitstorm his greed and pursuit of persona gain has spun up. No consequences, as any 6-year-old can tell you, no change in behavior.

      understandable, coming from a class of people who cannot imagine a world where money is meaningless.
      A US one dollar bill may well be most useful as a firestarter in a few decades. What the privileged cannot see is that their precious economy is one of the most fragile constructs on the planet, and will crumble to dust long before the last polar ice is gone. Being able to bribe one's way into a long life of security is dependent on the ability to properly bribe the local muscle.
      As economies crumble and long distance travel becomes nigh impossible, the local bribing currency will be very difficult to gauge. OTOH, any wealthy caravan with a lot of durable goods will be any easy target for any enterprising band of scavengers.

      I'll say it again; we eat them first.
