30 things that you should do to get prepared for the coming economic collapse

Do you think that you know how to prepare for the collapse of the economy?

If so, are you putting that knowledge into action?

In America today, people are more concerned about the possibility of an economic collapse than ever before. It has been estimated that there are now three million preppers in the United States. But the truth is that nobody really knows the actual number, because a lot of preppers keep their “prepping” to themselves. So what are all of those people preparing for exactly?

Well, survey after survey has shown that “economic collapse” is the number one potential disaster that preppers are most concerned about. 

Of course that shouldn’t be surprising because we truly are facing economic problems that are absolutely unprecedented. We are living in the greatest debt bubble in the history of the world, the global banking system has been transformed into a high-risk pyramid scheme of debt, risk and leverage that could collapse at any time, and wealthy countries such as the United States have been living way above their means for decades.

Meanwhile, the United States is being deindustrialized at a blinding pace and poverty in this country is absolutely exploding. Anyone that is not concerned about the economy should have their head examined. Fortunately, I have found that an increasing number of Americans are becoming convinced that we are heading for a horrific economic crisis. Once they come to that realization, they want to know what they should do.

And the reality is that “getting prepared” is going to look different for each family based on their own unique circumstances. Some people have a lot of resources, while others have very little. Some people are very independent of the system and can move wherever they want, while others are totally dependent on their jobs and must stay near the cities at least for now.

In addition, it is important to distinguish between the “short-term” and the “long-term” when talking about economic collapse. As I have written about previously, our economic collapse is not going to happen all at once. It is going to unfold over time. In the “short-term”, many are moving money around and are building up “emergency funds” to prepare for the next recession. For the “long-term”, many are storing up food and huge stockpiles of survival supplies in order to be prepared for the total collapse of society. Both approaches are wise, but it is important to keep in mind that different approaches will be needed at different times.

The strategies posted below are a mix of both short-term and long-term strategies. Some will be important for our immediate future, while others may not be needed for a number of years. But in the end, you will be very thankful for the time and the effort that you spent getting prepared while you still could.

The following is a list of 30 things that you and your family will need to survive when the economy totally collapses and the catastrophic disaster begins…

01. Keep some cash at home

Beyond collapse (free e-book)

Surviving and rebuilding civilization from scratch.

This book is an absolute must have if you want to survive and thrive!

Civilizations come and go…

…and they don’t always go quietly. In our global civilization, the consequence of it all crashing is going to be far-reaching, and with nowhere to hide. With so many moving parts and a lack of long-term stewardship by our leaders, odds are good that you will want to make at least a few preparations… but the question you often ask is: how? That’s where I come in.

In Beyond Collapse, we not only get you prepared for such an event, but we also help you and your fellow survivors come together, defend one another, preserve what may be lost and rebuild civilization together.

Unlike most books of this type, we don’t require a paramilitary mindset, tinfoil headgear, bunkers, or living “off-grid”. Everything in here is geared towards gaining skills and resources that are just as useful and socially acceptable in peaceful times as they will be when society and civilization crashes.

You will find this book useful for beginners, or those who have been preparing for a long time. The best part is, you will find it useful even if civilization holds up just fine.

It is advisible to print the free copy, because should the grid go down you would no longer have access to this information.

However should you prefer not to print all those pages by yourself (over 400 of them) then you could choose to buy the book here.

How you can make your own water distiller

Pressure cooker water distiller part I

Best and Brightest: College Students Sign Petition to”Ban Pressure Cookers”.

Not to be outdone by the hundreds of Californians who recently signed a petition to authorize a government sponsored door-to-door confiscations of firearms, college students in Miami-Dade county have stepped up in the interest of America’s safety and security to ban another hazardous weapon of mass destruction – the common kitchen pressure cooker.

You can’t make this stuff up…

Posing as a liberal activist, the petitioner makes her case by claiming pressure cookers, “were actually used in the Boston bombing, so we’re just trying to limit who can get them,” adding that her organization is, “just trying to keep people safe by reducing the number of them.”

Our best and brightest were more than happy to oblige.

P.S.: This is another plan to avoid you to take care for yourself in a survival situation.
The pressure cooker is used for home water destillation!
No water – no survival…. 😦
