At the writing of this intro, we are 20 trillion dollars in debt. The debt clock is running like a bullet train fast and even faster.
As the dollar is inflated with debt and false security, we move ever closer to the event that we all fear. The economic collapse is far from a myth. In fact, we are seeing a financial crisis on the state level all around us.
What do you think California and Detroit are experiencing? California is trying to correct via taxing people away.
Are you prepared to weather a storm of bank runs, hyperinflation, and a desperate public? These are the symptoms of an economic collapse. What can be done to prepare for the coming situation?
Having a serious emergency fund is very important. You need to have enough money to tackle, at least, a month of bills. This will give you some padding to deal with the woes of economic upheaval. The more you have in your emergency fund the better you will be able to deal with the issues of disaster and calamity.
Food, Food, Food
Food is one of the first panics that come to reality when you are dealing with an economic collapse. You can just look back to history.
Store real food for real disasters. You need to have access to things like rice, beans, corn, and wheat so that you can feed your family when things get really tight and they will.
What are you going to do with your community in the meantime? Dont forget everyone who is around is going to suffer, as well. There is real power in numbers so dont overlook the necessity of having people who can help you out! It can make a world of difference.
