How to survive the Coming Depression?

When the economy is shaken, it instills a lot of fear in people's everyday lives. What yesterday seemed safe, now seems shaky and unstable. If you followed the news recently, I'm sure you've heard many stories about how big the national debt has been received. It is rapidly heading towards $ 14 trillion dollars. Gas prices are rising again, food prices are soaring, and there are millions of people still looking for work. When it comes to surviving the recession, people automatically think of money, food and shelter. Even if all these are very important, there are other things you need, if you really want to deal with future crisis.

For many years we have been warned against a coming economic crash in America, and since 2006 we have been advised specifically of the housing crisis, recession and depression that followed. The key to surviving the coming economic depression is just preparation. I’ll try to explain "how-to-survive-the-coming-Depression” in a moment, but first I must paint a picture of something of what is to come. My conviction is that especially in America, this crisis will be worse than the Great Depression.

While this sounds scary, there is some good news. You see, if you know what to do, you can weather this storm and can come out better on the other side. Here are some things you can do to prepare for the coming economic depression.

The first thing you should immediately do is take all your money out of cash investments, such as savings accounts, certificates of deposit, money market funds and pension plans in stocks and bonds them.
Secondly, you can do is, to prepare paying off the debt as much you can. Having cash-in-hand during an economic depression is important. In order to find ways to reduce and save more. If you are investing heavily in the stock market, take the time to look closely at your investments.
The third thing you need are flashlights. This is a great chance that you will not have the power during these times and make sure you have plenty of batteries.

There are certain investments that won’t be affected by depression. Mutual funds, retirement accounts and stock options are good investments. The problem is that a severe economic downturn, particularly depression, these types of investments were written down, and in times of terrible economy, you can almost be useless if there is high inflation. Another thing you can do is explore the world of barter. To barter means for the exchange of goods or services to another product or service. In difficult times, people still need to do things, just not necessarily have the money to pay. So you can offer your services or goods in exchange for something, what you need. It can be food, shelter, clothing, or anything else you need. This will definitely take us to the barter-trade era, but as they say – life takes a full cycle, and I guess we are going there and have crossed more than half the cycle already.

The last thing I suggest you do to survive the coming economic depression is to start your own business part time. I think we all know that no job is recession proof. If services are no longer needed, you will be shown the door out of the organization. Start anything you are good at. Spend some time on your business and put it online, market it locally, start selling online – whatever you can do, but take up something part-time. This way, if you lose your job, you will always have money coming in.


  1. wtf? BATTERIES? Mutual funds, retirement accounts and stock options are good investments.
    ALL WORTH NOTHING in a depression. What a stupid article. You'll need the batteries to look at your "investments" LOL

  2. Poor advice. Anything tied to paper will burn. An IRA is one of the worst investments period. Extending tax liability into the future is foolish when future taxes will surely be 50%-70%+. Cash it out and convert to physical silver or anything REAL.

    If all Americans were taxed at 100% of income and left nothing, it would take 21 years to pay off our fake debt.

    People just don't get it. Amerika is done and we are slaves to the bankers and their desires. Including their for-profit wars. We have no say at all in anything.

    The ride is nearly over. Forget IRAs and stocks and think food, water, tools. REAL things.

  3. The best option to counter depression is to PRODUCE SUSTAINABILITY by first producing FREE FRESH ORGANIC FOOD wherever u are.

    If millions of people grow millions of fruit plants everywhere producing FREE FRESH ORGANIC FOOD, u're many steps ahead towards being FREE. ~

  4. Wah... fruit trees... organics?? I'm lost.. you can count on them bring g bare when people are starving. Im not bashing you, but the reason farmers aren't organic is because it doesn't exist. And the fact that we need higher yielding crops.

    Plan for the future with bartering tools. Invest in shelter, food and other provisions. Learn to garden through the growing season and get as far away from civilization as possible. A person that hasn't eaten for quite some time may become irrational. And someone that has nothing will think nothing of wanting what it is that you have. Were a savage breed. Just being real. Cheers.

  5. who wrote this? an 8th grader?

  6. I agree with all of the above comments. This article lacks substance. The BASICS (food, shelter, clothing) will be more important than Mutual Funds. Also HOPE is another basic that people will need - so start gearing up spiritualy. The flashlight is the only idea with merit.

  7. God is our greatest sustainer and cares for those who belong to HIm!
    Get your spiritual house in order and then your economics!
