    Lots of people know that ammo will be a good form of currency once money is worthless. But I also think there is an opportunity for water and food to be a currency. Many preppers say they will keep all their food and water to themselves and for good reason! I get it. But what if you prepped for...

    Well after reading some of the vitriol on the boards I'd like to share some info and bring out other opinions. I'm a prepper, and by no means believe that Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies are THE means to wealth, wealth preservation, or preparation for an EMP/SHTF scenario. If you want to...

    I was asking myself some questions today about the amount of money in circulation and what kind of effect that has been having on the national and world economy. What I saw was a familiar pattern, exponential growth, in both the amount of money circulating worldwide, and in the population. I...

    We’ve reached the end game for Central Bank intervention When confronted with excessive debt, you can either “take the hit” or you can try to inflate the debt away. In 2008, the Central Banks, lead by the US Federal Reserve, decided not to “take the hit.” They’ve since spent trillions of...

    I am thinking of starting a new trend. Instead of calling dollars "dollars" I am thinking about calling them Federal Reserve Notes no matter what the situation. Do you guys think this would catch on? I wonder if we could all get on board with this one and start calling them Federal Reserve...

    So I saw the other day on the MSM Michael Moore's little rant about how the rich people are absolutely evil and how they are hoarding all of the cash in America. An idea just popped into my head out of nowhere. Now I am sure that there are going to be people out there that aren't going to agree...

    If all really goes to hell how could gold be worth any more than paper money? You can't eat it. If you plant gold in the ground what would you get? It would not make a practical building material for shelter. No matter how thirsty you get gold will not satisfy like a drink of water. For...

Anyway, here's the outlook from the Schiff Report; not too rosy and good comparison to the Greece economic turmoil. Would've liked to hear if he thinks Greece, Portugal and...

    So lets say extreme SHTF scenario as in government has collapsed paper money is worthless. What do you think best medium of trade would be? Gold Ammo Tobacco Prescription Drugs Liquor ???? What would be the most useful item to have on hand for trade? Why weight, portability, easy to get now,
