If you remember what happened with Greece’s financial crisis, then you know that economic collapse isn’t just a threat – it’s already begun. You wouldn’t necessarily believe that from reading the news.
But the news doesn’t have access to the top-secret insider information that the government does. The truth is that trouble is already knocking on your door. Take a look around at what’s going on in the world.
Debts in countries all over the world have skyrocketed. Not one single country is fiscally solvent, yet all of these countries keep going further into debt like there will never be any consequences.
But there will be a reckoning when the economic collapse happens and when it does, it’s not going to be pretty. Once the economy goes belly up, you’re going to see lives thrown off balance, and the upheaval will become a fight for survival, and not everyone will survive because they’re not prepared.
When the economy fails, people are going to panic. Their normal life is going to suddenly, and without ample warning, become disrupted. When the collapse happens, people by the millions will rush to their banks in a desperate attempt to take out their money.
But the government, also desperate to keep the collapse from spreading, will limit or shut down completely the ability of people to withdraw their own money. Without being able to get their hands on money, people will grow even more panicked.
Crimes will rise as people steal, fight, and even kill for a way to survive. Riots will become more common than not. Looting will take place in every single city and town. Property and people alike will be destroyed.
As society crumbles into a financial dystopian free-for-all landscape, the government will start calling in the troops to regain control. Martial law will go into effect.
Your freedom to move about freely will be limited. You won’t be allowed to go where you want to go when you want to go there. You’ll have to be home by a certain time, and your rights will no longer matter.
Under martial law, regular laws are suspended. You will do as the government says. That’s why you need to protect yourself from economic collapse right now. Make sure that all of your money isn’t tied up in the bank.
Have some cash reserve on hand to buy what you haven’t already set aside. Keep your bug out bag ready to roll so that you can get out of an area the minute the trouble starts.
Have a place to go if needed that contains all of the survival supplies you need to hunker in place for a while if you have to. That means you need to have your food, medicine, and a way to communicate with others.
The power grid could eventually go down in an economic collapse, and you don’t want to be without a way to communicate. Make sure you have a renewable water supply near. Have ways to defend yourself and your family from those who could take your supplies or your life.
