Dmitry Orlov is a Russian-American engineer and writer on subjects related to “potential economic, ecological and political decline and collapse in the United States”, something he has called “permanent crisis”. He believes collapse will be the result of huge military budgets, government deficits, an unresponsive political system and declining oil production.
Orlov was born in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) and moved to the United States at the age of 12. He has a BS in Computer Engineering and an MA in Applied Linguistics. He was an eyewitness to the collapse of the Soviet Union over several extended visits to his Russian homeland between the late 1980s and mid-1990s.
