Who can keep up with the US economy? There are very few. Even fewer who can do it and then break that information down into digestible pieces that the US public can understand. That means that, for the most part, people are in the dark about what is going on in the nation. That’s not good at all!
How do we judge the government’s comments and the businesses of our time? People get good jobs and others loose good jobs. It happens over and over again. What are the things that we can do to be sure that we are existing in a time that is prosperous?
Well, it starts with news sources and what we read. The stats we take away form that reading are very important. Here are a few from a great source www.theeconomiccollapseblog.com:
#18 More than 7 million Americans are behind on their auto loan payments. That is also a new all-time record, and it is far higher than anything that we witnessed during the last recession.
#10 This is the worst slump for core U.S. factory orders in three years.
#2 We just learned that U.S. exports declined by 4 billion dollars during the month of December.
When you read about some of this stuff you cannot help but wonder what’s going on? Most people say that more Americans are working but it seems we are still behind on our bills, cannot save money and are struggling to grow our place in the world markets.
So, the most important part of all this is, when do things fall apart bad enough that we need to worry about unrest. It would seem that most people are just looking for a reason. This is not to be a doomsayer but it is to be honest. What are people really after? Are they looking for success or are they looking for a reason to be offended and burn it down?
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
