All your life you hear it.
“Save your money”
“Pay down your debt.”
Heck, we even hear it from our own government that is bloated with 20 trillion of its own debt. Imagine that!
The truth is, our long history of prosperity through debt cannot last forever. Its just impossible. So what do we do when the debtors or inflation come knocking. Are you prepared to deal with the economic implications of quadrillions of dollars in debt?
We will look back and scoff at 20 trillion.
Rising Cost of Goods
Because of our great debt, we will feel the burn of inflation sooner or later. Things that cost very little today will increase exponentially. If the world decides our bloated currency is no longer a reserve, we will suffer a nightmarish fate.
This could come at the hands of China, who steps into our place.
Creating Your Own Inputs
Now is the time to start creating your own resources. Growing your own food, sourcing your own water and maybe even working towards independence from the power grid.
What can you achieve on your land or in your community? Maybe cultivating a neighborhood of people who will battle and work through tough times is just as important a prep as any other.
The barter is enough to keep us afloat through most anything. How do we know that? Well, its the story of our kind. We have gone back to the barter in many occasions throughout history.
Engaging your local farmers, neighbors and artisans could be just what you need to endure a coming economic collapse. No matter what you chose to do, you are going to need a plan. We will not live on this model of eternal prosperity.
They very planet we call home will not allow it.
