The threat of a total Global Economic Collapse looks more and more probable.

How are people preparing for the worst case scenario(depression, food riots, etc.)?

Should we put money in Hard Gold or the ETF gold? If not gold, what other metals or commodites?

Should I buy guns, tasers etc.

Put all the money in the Yuan or what other currencies will benefit from the collapse.

Store canned foods in case shit hits the fan?

Get a high end security system?

What hard assets are worth picking up and why?

I have seen pictures of those food lines during the great depression....people of all ages waiting patiently for food. In this day and age, I dont see that type of patience/morality in todays society if it gets that bad. There would be more guns/knifes etc.

Anyway, i would like to hear your thoughts on what is the best way to prepare for the worst.......while keeping fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

If you're serious:

1) Buy a farm outside the Country.

2) Buy a boat moored in a coastal area. And be prepared to sail to your tropical retreat.

If thats not feasible:

2) Buy a rural farm in America.

3) Have two other "fall back" properties outside your City in a rural area. Stay away from people.

4) Keep all properties stocked with at least 3 years storeable food for every adult in your family

5) Keep all properties stocked with guns and ammo (handgun, shotgun, well-scoped rifle). Keep some guns in the house and some buried on property (in case of house-to-house gun confiscations).

6) Keep all properties stocked with adequate coined precious metal. Silver and gold coins in pedestrian amounts are useful for barter and trade. Gold bars will not be practical. Bury and hide in several places, at each property.

Bear in mind - if shit hits the fan and Government confiscates or nationalizes bank accounts or savings - say in the 401K confiscation program already trial-ballooned - only hard money (gold bars) will be a safe vehicle to preserve wealth.


7) Keep all properties stocked with gas-masks, Potassium iodide (in the event of nuclear fallout), penicillin, etc. Take a first-aid course.

8) Keep all properties stocked with adequate energy reserves (underground natural gas, solar, wind etc).

9) Have a well dug at each property, some Berky water filters, reverse osmosis. Or the best solution - atmospheric water generator.


All that said, the best option in the event of financial collapse or societal breakdown - leave the Country.

Of course, thats if u don't wanna stay and fight for the Constitution

Oh yea, and if you're gonna stay in America, organize a commune of like minded neighbors and friends. There's safety in numbers.

Yes...Most people under the age of 30 do not even really remember that the soviet union was our equal in the world. Only reason it fell was because Reagen knew we could "outspend" the USSR, as a communist country is not as stable financially as a capitalistic country. But look what we are doing today. Our financial system is in near ruins and we are just spending more money than ever. Its like people dont remember that the soviet union was doing the exact same thing near the end. Printing more and more money which is why their money kept losing its value. People think oil prices have dropped from 147 to 57 dollars, but you gotta remember...oil prices have not dropped that much for the rest of the world. Only because our dollar has temporarily gained strength is it like that. When we were paying 147 per barrel, in europe it only felt like they were paying 110 per barrel. Gold is practically the same way. On march 17, 2008 gold was 1,000 dollars per ounce. Today its $744 per ounce. On March 17, 2008 Gold was 497 British pounds per ounce. Today its 496 British pounds per ounce!!! The same price! Almost the same is the Euro. On march 17, 2008 at our height the euro was 641 euros per Ounce. Today its 590 Euros per ounce. Not a big fluctuation as say going from 1000 per ounce to 740. Indian rupee...same thing it was 40k per ounce, today its 37,000 per ounce...only a 7.5% drop vs our 26% drop.

You have got to see something is wrong with the US economy when the rest of the worlds major economies are staying pretty stable with gold/oil/food and the US is jumping around like...well like someone is manipulating something! Its like two guys sitting on a see-saw with a 1,000 pound ball in the middle. You can make the ball go one way for a bit, then the other way, but if that ball gets up any momentum, its going to crush one guy and throw the other 100 feet into the air!

Wow calm down already ...the developed countries all wanted the soviets to fall and it did.
it is a time of great change and it is happening because of each one of us.
we humans dont think many things logically. just think about the security budget of the countries in the world... and who are they defending themselves from? from each other?

Housing starts may be worst since 1940s, deflation also expected

Few observers have ever seen anything like the economic data to be released in the coming week, with the consumer price index and housing starts each expected to breach records dating back more than half a century.
