Businesses will start monetizing the end of the world scenario now that the countdown to the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012 intensifies, as announced by several international news sites, January 1, 2012.

According to reports, the “Doomsday Clock” issue will continue to strengthen as the year 2012 begins. Similarly attested, there is seemingly no end in sight on how various businesses are cashing in on the doomsday scenario.

The Internet is apparently awash with websites promoting, debunking and monetizing the end of the world scenario.

Related reports further reveal that people can expect endless stream of books, DVDs, merchandise and even smartphone applications connected with the end of the Mayan calendar.

“It’s an amazing cottage industry,” said Benjamin Radford, managing editor of Skeptical Inquirer magazine and author of “Scientific Paranormal Investigation: How to Solve Unexplained Mysteries.”

“It’s as if anything with ‘2012’ and ‘doomsday’ on the cover is being cranked out. There are hundreds of titles already out there, and we expect dozens more. There clearly are people concerned the world will end on Dec. 21.”

Apparently, the doomsday scenario comes about because the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. The Mayan calendar rolls over to zero on that date and will allegedly characterize the “End of the World 2012“.
