20 Things You Will Need To Survive When The Economy Collapses And The Next Great Depression Begins

Today, millions of Americans say that they believe that the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another Great Depression.  But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for that to happen.  The sad truth is that the vast majority of Americans would last little more than a month on what they have stored up in their homes. 
 Most of us are so used to running out to the supermarket or to Wal-Mart for whatever we need that we never even stop to consider what would happen if suddenly we were not able to do that.  Already the U.S. economy is starting to stumble about like a drunken frat boy.  All it would take for the entire U.S. to resemble New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina would be for a major war, a terror attack, a deadly pandemic or a massive natural disaster to strike at just the right time and push the teetering U.S. economy over the edge.  So just how would you survive if you suddenly could not rely on the huge international corporate giants to feed, clothe and supply you and your family?  Do you have a plan?

Unless you already live in a cave or you are a complete and total mindless follower of the establishment media, you should be able to see very clearly that our society is more vulnerable now than it ever has been.  This year there have been an unprecedented number of large earthquakes around the world and volcanoes all over the globe are awakening.  You can just take a look at what has happened in Haiti and in Iceland to see how devastating a natural disaster can be.  Not only that, but we have a world that is full of lunatics in positions of power, and if one of them decides to set off a nuclear, chemical or biological weapon in a major city it could paralyze an entire region.  War could erupt in the Middle East at literally any moment, and if it does the price of oil will double or triple (at least) and there is the possibility that much of the entire world could be drawn into the conflict.  Scientists tell us that a massive high-altitude EMP (electromagnetic pulse) blast could send large portions of the United States back to the stone age in an instant.  In addition, there is the constant threat that the outbreak of a major viral pandemic (such as what happened with the 1918 Spanish Flu) could kill tens of millions of people around the globe and paralyze the economies of the world.
But even without all of that, the truth is that the U.S. economy is going to collapse.  So just think of what will happen if one (or more) of those things does happen on top of all the economic problems that we are having.

  1. Just read history of past depression/hyperinflation. The answers are there. Hyperinflation in Zimbabwe is so high that their currency is dead. Nobody wants to use it. Luckily they have backup currencies. They are using the neighboring country's currencies, the dollar and of course precious metal.

  2. I can't believe that was in Financial Times! They were saying there's GOING to be a depression and we need to prepare for it. Unbelievable!

  3. The article states "Most American families could not last much longer than a month on what they have in their house right now."

    A month? They must be joking! Most sheeple households won't last a week.

    The average person you ask will tell you they go the grocery store 2x a week and they have enough food for maybe 4-5 days max.

  4. Remember not to blab or brag about your food stores.

    #1, you'll look like a nut to your sheeple friends now.

    #2, you will have many unwelcome visitors when SHTF.

  5. I will be snacking on yummy meals for months while the lines are forming at the processing stations.

    I will also get in line for handouts at the same time, must keep up appearances.

  6. Keeping up appearancesMay 8, 2010 at 4:37 AM

    It isn't Bucket it's Bouquet!

  7. The banker media is slowing starting to use words like economic collapse and depression. This is not good. If the sheeple lose confidence and run to the banks and their stock brokers, its game over.

  8. Get out of stocks and shares (if you're actually stupid enough to have any) FAST !
    Buy gold - small 5g ingots will do nicely and won't bankrupt you. Have a 6 month max CASH reserve.
    You need 2-3 YEARS worth of supplies to be reasonably sure you'll be ok.
    Now, what you do is this :
    1. Ensure access to water.
    2.Stock upon baked beans.Don't laugh - yes we all know the funny side of beans..
    From a nutritional perspective, they are an excellent all round nutritional source (ie contain protein, complex carbs, vitamins and minerals and fibre)
    3. Buy rice in bulk (ie 25kg bags)

    For 1 person, for 1 year, that is about 300 x 440g tins of beans,1 bag of rice.
    It ain't fancy, but it is cheap and wll keep you alive. You can buy caviar instead if you wish - just go get your loan...

    Stock up on ammo and if you have unlisted weapons, all the better. Keep them all SAFE !!

  9. Let's be realistic.. None of us can truly prepare for when the whole thing collapses.. Most of us have no extra money to prepare and even if we could how much is really enough. Let's face it we really cannot be prepared to a end senario. That is where our Faith in God will have to kick in. Between thieves, robbers, armed thugs. If it really came down to it everyone would go crazy if things became this dire. No preparation will be good enough. Besides this is all eventually going to lead to Armageddon a war between God/Satan/Mankind things will not save you.. Satan is uniting a One world order to control the masses for that war. So the maximum amount of people die because they support this system. God will use this UN to destroy false religion soon they will take all their wealth and remove religion except the true one. Satan's world will then try to attack the one true religion left. But God will then step in and unleash his fury on the evil nations.. That is what really needs to be prepared for. Things will not save people it is faith in God and having the true belief. This IS the reality what we see now is the building up to this the world is slowly being changed to Unite under a one world government under Satan. It will be forced on the people no matter what it takes..

  10. 3:34,

    I'm not sure whether you're saying there is a true church that will be ultimate or if you're saying to believe in God as the highest order of all things and desiring to figure out what to do for it being right which would constitute a good person.

    Either way I see most people in this world have gone insane literally, without even realizing it. Most people are disfunctional and in agonizing pain yet hide it with a false facade. If you're not on drugs, obese, obsessed with text messaging or myspace, watch MTV or VH1, go out and get drunk as hell, then you are apart of the sane minority.

    I believe all the Noahs know who they are regardless of belief or intellectual preferences. Those who try their best now to purify their heart and gain mental light (clarity) will be safe during the oncoming cataclysm(s). If not then this world is just a byproduct of crude matter and the laws of physics and it isn't worth any lasting value.

  11. It's highly unlikely the dumbed down idiotic mind controlled tv addicted sheeple will cope at all once TSHF. There will come a day when some of the sheeple will have no power, water or food. Then what?

    Once hungry and thirsty, the sheeple will resort to anything, this is why it is EXTREMELY important for those of us who are prepared to be sure and be armed.

    And SHUT-UP to everyone, including outside family about your preparation. The fewer who know about your supplies, the better.

    I suspect the fema camps will be similar to the New Orleans scenario, the nice govt will offer you and your family a free ride to the nearest fema camp/stadium etc.


  12. 21 thing you'll need to survive: STOP REPRODUCING LIKE NOXIOUS VERMIN since the planet has finite space and a finite regeneration rate.

    A BANKER!!!

  14. Doom and gloom, meh, not gonna happen the economy will roll on like an old steam engine, putt-putt-putt-putt. "Oh no the sky is falling" people you need to relax and look around you, the type of scenario you are imagining won't happen in our lifetimes, so you can go back to your regulary scheduled programming, remember there are hundreds of millions of working people in this country and still 70 percent of them are still working, traveling, buying, selling, farming, having kids, drinking being merry, getting married, dancing, singing, playing sports. You need to go outside. Turn off your tv and stop watching the mainstream media they are frying your brains with all this stock market crap, that is their game keep you in fear even the doom and gloomers. Then you have Gerald Celente saying its gonna collapse for the past three years yeah real accurate Gerald with your big ass acorn head and under the table payouts from the gold hoarders. Shit happens when it does deal with it until then stop being little bitches about it!

  15. 6:40

    You are sooo right. These people all work for haters of america. I bet if I looked at their ip you would find they dont even live in america. Its all a hustle. they are doing their part to bring down or rake in their own agenda. I goto this link and check it out often. so often that one week goes by and nothing. the next week goes by and nothing. Bbbbbbbut according to this s i t e. SHTF every week. We are only hours away. poof the magic dragon man!!!

  16. I'm kinda /sorta in your way of thinking 7:Am

    I like reading these type's of blogs, and what people have to say.

    people have had to "be prepared" from birth on, its all a matter of degree and timing. Humans will continue on as always, some will die and some will live, so what, in the end we ALL wind up in one hole or another.

    As a 60+ combat vet retired I've seen places that come close to this kind of stuff first hand, and I seen people survive and go on there too.

  17. my post @ 8:11 was for "7:45 Am" the :45 got cut off

    (I'm kinda /sorta in your way of thinking 7:Am)

  18. 3:34 Yes you can ! I started over 6 years ago and am as prepared as one can be - it takes some time and effort; but a family can get to the point where living off the grid for 12 to 15 months can be very doable. We have our own generator; also 3 years ago I installed a bank of solar panels; drilled our own water well and last year installed a greenhouse that has been furnishing veggies ever since.

    Well stocked on ammo for our firearms and enough food for well over a year and own 2 vehicles that run on CNG & we own the gas well.

    You can be prepared !

    To 7:45 - If you think for one minute what's going on around you is somehow going to just "go away" you are really in for a shock.

    We are now past the local level
    past the county level
    past the state level
    we're talking about entire countries that are BROKE man - flat BROKE

    And it's coming to our shores soon.

  19. All I know is that It is going to be raining some serious lead in the US from coast to coast very soon... Blood is going to flow in the streets ankle deep! Both Tyrants and Patriots are going to fall as the tree of liberty gets refreshed.

    At least the Mayans were more civilized about it with their blood sacrifices..

  21. There is no mythical God coming to save you. Save yourself.

  22. Never never never turn over your guns indeed !

    They are today in Chicago offering a free Credit card with X amount of points on it to anyone who turns in a gun.

    Being a bit of a gun buff; when the camera showed the bins & the "guns"contained within'
    I just had to laugh.

    People are not stupid !

    Most of these "guns" were ten dollar Saturday nite specials - people brought 'em in - got thier charge card worth 200 bucks and will have another piece of shit 10 dollar zip gun tomorrow

    Our Government is so fucked up !

    Poster at 10:16 - I will add that after a while this mentality becomes just like going to Walmart after church every Sunday to buy worthless Chinese shit used to be for me 5-6 years ago. It's a thought process & a bit of a paradigm shift; but I hear you loud and clear - Me and my family are well prepared and after a while; this thinking gradually rubs off on them
    & they keep the tanks full and the pantry overflowing with rotated stock & the toliet paper
    is kept at 1 year supply and I make damn sure he generator is in A-1 condition.

    It's just a mindset - why rely on some duchebag at a control panel you've never even met before when you can rely on your family - they will come thru when times get tough

  23. I suggest adding multi-vitamins or at the least chewable vitamin C to your survival list.

  25. Anyone who says this will not happen in our lifetime is deluded. Countries are broke.
    The United States is broke. Do you not know this? Are you not informed? Do you watch nothing but American Idol? For the poster who said this will not happen in our lifetime, you'd better get real--in a hurry.

  26. 745 is rude and disrespectful. Also wrong. This really is happening. Please do the math.

  27. 806
