economic collapse

  1. Coronavirus
    Who is most often killed directly from the Virus? The old. Those with high blood pressure, smokers, breathing issues, compromised immune systems? Many politicians are telling us that we are shutting down the economy to protect the most vulnerable among us. I have a 92 yr old mother in assisted...
  2. Coronavirus
    Even though death and infection rates are slowly decreasing, I feel the worst is yet to come. Maybe not with Coronavirus, but with the economy, foreign trade, relations with other nations, civil liberties... etc. It is as if everything that could go wrong was written on pieces of paper, put...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    First off, I do have some preps. But nothing near what a really long term situation would require. So I ask you. If you had advanced knowledge of an economic collapse. Or something similar. And you were to jump into your car to hit the local Walmart or grocery store. Before the hoards of...
  4. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    What are your economic indicators? In other words, how do you determine if the general public is worried about uncertain times? Besides all the information the government publishes, I use three indicators. The local feed and fertilizer / farm supply store On Friday, May 22nd I was at Circle...
  5. Books, Movies & Stories
    I just found this book on Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Collapse-End-Our-Life-Survive-ebook/dp/B00H4ENC6Y At only 99 cents I figured even if it was horrible it would be worth it. It was actually a surprisingly good synopsis of some fairly likely collapse scenarios the US (and in some cases the...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I have been doing a lot of reading and research talking to my friend who is a economics professor. I have realized SHTF, Teotwawki, etc... will be a lot different than depicted in books and a lot of us preppers imaginations. I assumed socio-economic collapse would be quick for the most...

  10. General Discussion
    After having an interesting conversation with a friend the other night about technology, I was prompted to consider the subject a little further. My friend was commenting on how he no longer pays attention to where he is going because he relies on his GPS. He then began to talk about how his son...

  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've noticed that many people on here prep because they see a scenario where global economic collapse is the main theme. I'm a with many people on here that the collapse has already started. It's been a slow drop for a while and will quickly pick up pace and head off a cliff. When mass...

  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    When we talk about SHTF situations most are fast, obvious and pretty damaging all at once. Plague, EMP, CME, just to name a few. But economic meltdown I would say could be the hardest to recognize and in the end one of the most dangerous. I really feel we are at the beginning to see the start...
  16. General Discussion
    I originally posted this in the financial forum, but I feel it breaks the situation down enough so that those who aren't usually interested or knowledgeable in financial matters can understand it. First of all, Obama would never straight shoot like that or take any responsibility whatsoever...
