We have seen many "impossibles" in the last couple of years. Be prepared for the next -- a hyperinflationary depression. It is not impossible, it is not an oxymoron, and it should surprise no thinking economist. It is nearly upon us.
Your lifestyle will depend on how prepared you are to meet this newest, biggest, and most horrific Black Swan. This beast will destroy economies, overthrow some governments, and alter the nature of the world.
Thoughts? Well, prepping for this scenario is sort of like prepping for a meteor strike or a monstrous EMP that fries everything electrical in the world. And by that I mean, you can't
prep for it.
SO, since it is impossible to be prepared for the complete collapse of the global economy and our planet being thrown into a fuedal state, it's not something I'm preparing for. Man, life is easier now that I'm not stressing about that!
I searched for this topic before posting
... and read the whole thread before posting!
I agree with everyone that posted that this bad stuff is going to happen. Some great info in those posts....
WHY DO YOU THINK YOU CANNOT PREPARE FOR THIS !!!!?????
There is now a new prediction from someone that predicted what we are in now. He predicted in 2006 that in 2007 it would start...... http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=20853
August 31, 2010Global Collapse of the Fiat Money System: Too Big To Fail Global Banks Will Collapse Between Now and First Quarter 2011When Quantitative Easing Has Run Its Course and Fails
Readers of my articles will recall that I have warned as far back as December 2006, that the global banks will collapse when the Financial Tsunami hits the global economy in 2007. And as they say, the rest is history.
Quantitative Easing (QE I) spearheaded by the Chairman of Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke delayed the inevitable demise of the fiat shadow money banking system slightly over 18 months.
That is why in November of 2009, I was so confident to warn my readers that by the end of the first quarter of 2010 at the earliest or by the second quarter of 2010 at the latest, the global economy will go into a tailspin. The recent alarm that the US economy has slowed down and in the words of Bernanke “the recent pace of growth is less vigorous than we expected” has all but vindicated my analysis. He warned that the outlook is uncertain and the economy “remains vulnerable to unexpected developments”.
Obviously, Bernanke’s words do not reveal the full extent of the fear that has gripped central bankers and the financial elites that assembled at the annual gathering at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. But, you can take it from me that they are very afraid.

When it happens, there will be no fuel, utilities will go off after 1 - 2 weeks (electric, Natural gas, water, etc.), and food will run out within 1 week in most cities.
You better have firewood, seeds, food to last until your next crop comes in, hunting, fishing, and trapping supplies/equipment and enough brass and lead to protect it all for 1 - 2 months (the masses will starve by then).
Living will be much easier after that (security wise) - and rebuilding will be easier without the welfare state. "Don't work - you don't eat".
