This website is all about how to survive a depression. The question is not whether we will go into an economic depression, but how long it will last and what you can do to live through it and even prosper.
The collapse of the dollar will be a life-changing event. It will virtually impact all areas of your life, including your family's:
Few of your neighbors are now aware of a coming economic collapse. But when that time comes, when the dollar collapse is imminent and the realization hits home, our way of life will become but a semblance of its former self.
Rapidly rising food prices and shortages of all kinds will likely be the first sign that something is amiss. Grocery store shelves will rapidly be depleted of food products. Many comforts of life people now take for granted will disappear, and do so suddenly.
The buying power of the dollar will fall so low in value, few merchants will be willing to accept paper money. The first time the realization that the dollar is dead sets in, fear, panic and greed will rule the day. In desperation people will rob and steal to get what they need. To keep law and order, a declaration of a national emergency by the President will curtail freedom of movement.
Under the executive order of a national emergency, the President may seize property, organize and control the means of production, seize commodities, assign military forces abroad, institute martial law, seize and control all transportation and communication, regulate the operation of private enterprise, restrict travel, and, in a variety of ways, control the lives of United States citizens. In short, we lose our freedoms.
The picture is scary, but not without hope.
This website was created to empower you with know-how information, so you can prepare to survive (even prosper) in the coming economic collapse.
We've Been Conned
Our U.S. President, Congress and the Federal Reserve Board would have us believe all is well. They all are liars. All is not well. Take these two U.S. quarters for example:
One was minted in 1964 and is made out of silver. The other, minted in 1965, looks like the 1964 quarter but it was made out of nickel-plated copper (It has no silver).
To illustrate the difference between the buying power of these two coins: In 1964, a loaf of whole wheat bread cost .25 cents. The 1964 silver quarter today still buys a loaf of whole wheat bread. However it takes 13 of the 1965 quarters to buy the same loaf. Why is this? The 1964 quarter is worth $3.25 for its silver. The 1965 quarter is only worth .25 cents because its value is determined by government policy. The price of silver in the 1964 quarter reflects the free market value and lost purchasing power of the dollar.
Bread prices haven't really gone up at all over the past 40 years. They just "seem" to have gone up because the value of our money has gone down. And that’s how it is for virtually everything we buy.
The government removed the silver from dimes and quarters in
1965. The con was they nickel-plated the new copper coins to make them look like silver.
With silver and gold no longer backing our money, the government is free to print as much paper money and fiat coinage as they need to expand government programs. This expansion in the money supply creates inflation and causes the purchasing power of every dollar previously printed to go down.
Note: It is a common held belief that rising prices cause inflation. That is exactly opposite of reality. It's like saying wet streets cause rain. Rising prices are the result of inflation, not its cause.
Today it takes one dollar to buy what two pennies would buy in 1913. That's how inflated our money supply has become.
Debt has replaced silver and gold as money. In other words, before a new dollar bill can be printed, a dollar's worth of debt must be claimed against it. That means the money in your pocket right now represents debt. Since the government must borrow one dollar for every new dollar printed and repay it off with interest, there can never be enough dollars to pay off all debts.
The debt can only keep growing, which means ever-increasing inflation. How much lower can the dollar fall and inflation rise before people lose faith in the dollar as a form of money?
This is not a hypothetical question. A report published by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, July/August 2006, states; "Unless the United States moves quickly to fundamentally change and restrain its fiscal behavior, its bankruptcy will become a foregone conclusion."
Let's Be Honest:
Does anyone really believe politicians in the U.S. House and Senate will actually support fiscal behavior? Yes, a few will, but most of them will not. They may brae like rented mules and speak about saving the dollar, but their track record speaks louder than their words.
You and You Alone Must Protect Your Family and Assets:
If you are to survive the coming economic collapse, you must begin now to learn what you can and then take immediate action on what you learn. This includes helping your neighbors. Time is of essence. Do not rely on FEMA or any other government agency to bail you out when the dollar collapses and gives up the ghost. The government is cause of the problem, not the solution.
