"Boomsday": comic fiction or all too real?

Boomsday is satire, sometimes over the top, but it contains enough elements of plausibility to raise serious questions. Buckley, through Cassandra, is right to ask whether the next two or three generations should be paying for the retirements of Boomers. A subplot involving Cassandra's father and a software project he is working on that would accurately predict the time of your death sounds fascinating until you realize which industries would make use of it. Its portrayal of a near future weakened America which is all but bankrupt – in Boomsday foreign nations are no longer interested in buying U.S. debt – sounds preposterous until you realize that day may not be far away after all.
