How To Survive An Economic Collapse

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Some practical tips on how to survive and recover from a highly possible U.S. economic collapse or even from a global one can make a difference if you are facing such kind of unprecedented situation. From any economic collapse, the path to recovery is highly dependent on the mechanism causing the collapse.

We need to evaluate what are the most likely causes of an economic collapse in order to find some appropriate ways to fix the malfunction once it happens. This requires us to not see the situation how we want it to be but rather take a realistic look at the situation.

There are still some people who are not even realizing we are heading for an epic proportion U.S. economic collapse. For them, may seem getting too far ahead talking about recovery. However, you need to be aware of the fact that how informed you are before the collapse will likely determine how well and how fast you’ll recover from it.

Just think about a very simple example. You pack the appropriate clothing when you leave on a trip. You check your emergency equipment, make sure the car is running well and have a spare tire with you. If you don’t have the proper emergency measures in place when the economy collapses, you’ll find yourself unable to move anywhere and stranded on place.

Being unable to move means from a societal standpoint that, out of necessity, you’ll begin to pray on one another to fulfill your needs because you’ll not be able to resolve any of problems quickly. As the crisis is drawn out over time, this can cause monumental loss of life. Having a reliable plan and counting on the proper emergency equipment can greatly reduce the suffering  endured by society. However, this means we can keep it manageable rather than there will be no pain.

In a traditional economy, agrarian or industrial, having a product to sell drives a nation’s wealth. However, in a modern service economy the country is dependent on having a wealthy society with enough disposable income for supporting service jobs. But for a society to get wealthy in the first place, this true wealth should be generated by some type of real production.

The type of collapse faced now by many western nations will require the ability to actually produce real goods,. In order to lift society out of any depression is necessary to begin the generation of wealth following any collapse. Society will need those with insight standing by after the collapse to provide people with real jobs and begin the production of real goods. When things bottom out, the lack of resources and jobs following any collapse could bring predatory actions and poverty.

Realistically speaking, the U.S. economic collapse won’t guarantee an easy recovery. Most of America’s manufacturing ability has been already shipped overseas. When a collapse occurs, America will once again need its ability to produce basic necessities because it will lack the ability to import them.

Americans will suffer in the future due to the lack of a functional manufacturing sector if they do not set aside the necessary emergency equipment needed after an U.S. economic collapse in order to restart the manufacturing ability. But to build up that ability it’s needed to have certain equipment in order to produce other equipment. America is doomed to third world status and poverty for decades to come due to the fact that U.S. is lacking now this basic equipment to rebuild its manufacturing ability.

By comparison, over the past decade U.S.’ economic rival China has already embarked on a building spree. The new infrastructure and many ghost cities existent now all over China is the result of this preparation. China possesses now all the factories needed and all of the manufacturing technology of the west to produce the needed goods. For future use, the country have also secured raw materials all over the world. And, most important, China has also built up a huge stockpile of gold.

By all means China has positioned itself to posses the ability and the necessary infrastructure to recover fast and easy from any economic collapse faced by the world in the near future. They dispose now of all the equipment needed to build their own wealthy middle class. The rise of Chinese economy is strongly fueled today and in the future. They try now to achieve what the U.S. achieved in the 20th century by becoming a world leader politically, militarily, and economically and building up a wealthy middle class.

Americans need to realize that China now owns vital ports and businesses in the U.S. Following an economic collapse China will be in the position to increase its manufacturing ability in the U.S. and smother any American attempt to rebuild its own manufacturing ability making it independent of foreign influence. This is the threat to America recovering any future collapse if we do not have a large number of independent operators that can rebuild manufacturing ability at the local level quickly following any serious event.

If America wishes to remain free, we need people with vision to prepare for this eventuality and be able to respond with a new program of production to counter the many dangers we will face in the future. There are two areas that should be concentrated on as far as production is concerned. The first is the extraction or harvesting of resources and raw materials. The second is the conversion of those raw materials into finished goods.

Once you lose the ability to earn a living and to work, you become a dependent of your government. As you ask handouts to survive you are no more than a government serf forced to bend to their will. In an U.S. economic collapse the savings of the masses along with the medium of exchange are destroyed. You can no longer buy the goods needed for survival when this happens.

Two of the things that can help surviving an economic collapse are raw materials and individual labor. By combining these two with production equipment, you get all the means for the basics of survival. You can provide the basics for the people and help them to find their way through the difficulties. Without a medium of exchange, people can still work for the things they need. A serious crisis that can destroy societies and fracture the population can be made easier this way.

When goods at the most basic level are lacking to sustain families, small localized production can make a big difference. Since food is a basic necessity, the ability to produce agricultural products is the basis of any society. Food is not only a basic necessity but it’s also essential for any prosperous society.

To provide basic goods is any production scheme’s first level. Industrial production can be supported by the means of food. Industrial workers are able to buy food for their families with the wages earned. Therefore, in case of economic collapse food becomes the primary trade item, having the innate ability to support other types of production. This way, a higher standard of living for society can eventually been provided.

The scope and size of production will be dependent on forward looking individuals’ abilities to procure the necessary machines prior to any economic collapse or crisis. The truth is that the future will be as difficult as we make it to be. We are preparing to fail if we fail to prepare. This can lead to suffering on an unimaginable scale. When the time comes, huge dividends can be yield even with a small amount of preparing.

Most definitely, any preparations for the changes ahead will be worthwhile. A proper and reliable infrastructure can bring significant benefits. The amount of infrastructure available when crisis strikes in the future will determine the hardships we will face. What’s certain is the fact that we can only get through a future crisis by producing real goods. This is the only way to survive, recover and keep society in tact for the duration.

People in America today are more concerned about the possibility of a U.S. economic collapse than ever before. According to statistics, there are now as much as three million people who take serious measures to prepare for the imminent economic collapse in the United States. However, because many preppers keep their preparations to themselves, nobody really knows the actual number.

Surveys have shown that the number one potential disaster preppers are most concerned about is the global economic collapse. This comes of no surprise as it became obvious even for the uninitiated that we truly are facing absolutely unprecedented economic problems. The global banking system has become a high-risk pyramid scheme of risk, debt and leverage.

We are living now in the greatest debt bubble in the world’s history. Wealthy countries like the U.S. have lived for decades way above their means but now the debt pyramid  could collapse at any time. Meanwhile, the poverty in America is absolutely exploding as the country is being de-industrialized at a fast pace.
