Will You Turn Away Family, Friends And Neighbors At Your Door When America’s Day Of Disaster Arrives?

This article by Michael Snyder was originally published by The Economic Collapse. How will you handle all of the people that will show up at your door when a major crisis strikes because they haven’t been making any preparations of their own? Earlier today somebody asked me about this on Facebook, and I thought that it was a very good question, because thousands of my readers will be faced with this precise dilemma at some point. When America’s day of disaster arrives, it is inevitable that most of us that are prepping will have family, friends and neighbors showing up at our door asking for help.  When that happens, what will you do? There are some people out there that are very honest about the fact that they do not plan to share what they have stored up with anyone, and that even close family members will be greeted […] Read More

Economic Collapse Will Serve One Purpose: “Global Governance and the Enslavement of Mankind”

The ever-tightening noose around the neck of man shows no sign of slippage: all actions by all of the governments are anent control and dominion.  The path to global governance is plainly marked, visible through all of the turmoil.  It is that turmoil, those “incidents” that are created and fostered by the governments that enable them to further constrict the noose.  The economy plummets in Cyprus and Greece?  Time to limit the cash withdrawals.  The European banks are having a “hard time” in places such as France or Spain?  Time to pillage people’s savings and their IRA’s. Manufactured crises are the norm, not the exception, and all of them are designed to facilitate one purpose: global governance and the enslavement of mankind. The Bilderbergers are meeting in Germany this week.  Paul Joseph Watson of Alex Jones’ Prison Planet reported on some of the key issues they will be discussing, […] Read More

“Better Than Paper Money”: 7 Things You Need To Have When the Economy Collapses

This article was written and originally published by Activist Post. Editor’s Comment: These are the basics you should have covered. Many of the widespread, system wide scenarios involve a financial system that is crippled or inoperable for a period of time (as seen in Greece). There, cash is much better than non-working digital payments and assets locked behind institutions you can’t access. But money won’t buy things if there is no commerce, no stores and no one to do business with. On the other hand, these supplies will not only keep you and yours going for quite a while when the SHTF, they will also make good barter items in the underground economy. These 7 Things Are Better Than Paper Money in the Bank When the Economy Collapses by Activist Post So you’ve done the hard work of getting your finances in order and now you’re looking to invest […] Read More

Dozens of Stock Markets Are Already Crashing: “Not Seen Numbers Like These Since 2008″

This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at his Economic Collapse Blog. Editor’s Comment: The system is beyond the point where it is merely showing stresses and fractures. Things are now falling apart and there may well be no way of putting them back together again. The media will continue to claim everything is fine, until the day of panic and reckoning when it will suddenly be the ‘next Greece’ or ‘2008 all over again’… but worse. 27 Major Global Stocks Markets That Have Already Crashed By Double Digit Percentages In 2015 by Michael Snyder Anyone that tries to tell you that a global financial crisis is not happening is not being honest with you.  Right now, there are 27 major global stock markets that have declined by double digit percentages from their peaks earlier this year.  And this is truly a global phenomenon – we […] Read More

(Big Fat Schocker) Claim: ‘Fed Policy Helps Rich Get Richer’

According to some reality-smashing journalism coming out of NBC, the Federal Reserve’s policies are creating “economic distortions” that result in transfers of wealth to, you guessed it, the wealthy. “The global economy is witnessing a massive redistribution of wealth and income with borrowers, equity shareholders and short-term investors benefiting; and savers, bondholders and longer-term investors being placed at risk,” wrote Rieder, chief investment officer of BlackRock’s Fundamental Fixed Income division and co-head of Americas Fixed Income. The wealth gap in this country is already the largest it has ever been in recorded history and it just continues to widen. Gee. I wonder why. Last year, Fed Chair Janet Yellen even admitted America is an oligarchy. Meanwhile, while we all have a pretty good idea who owns the Fed, have fun trying to get an answer to that question or really any solid idea who the Fed is ultimately accountable […] Read More

Yet Another Banker Commits Suicide

At this point, it’s hard to say how many bankers have killed themselves over the past two years, which is a troubling thought when you consider how “good” the economy is supposedly doing. On Thursday, another investment banker joined that ever-growing list, after he killed himself in New York City. He leapt from his home on the 24th floor of the Ocean Luxury Apartment Building and landed in the traffic below, leaving a grizzly scene for commuters. And as is all too common in our society today, after the impact mangled his body, tourists on an open air bus scrambled for their phones to take pictures. Sources close to Thomas J. Hughes claim that he had tried to commit suicide earlier in the day. But by all accounts he was a highly educated, successful ,and jovial man, though an abundance of drugs were found in his apartment by police. […] Read More

What Will Happen to You When the Dollar Collapses?

By Jeff Thomas Historically, when a nation’s debt exceeds its ability to repay even the interest, it can be assumed that the currency will collapse. Typically, governments exacerbate the situation by printing large amounts of currency notes in an effort to inflate the problem away, or at least postpone it.The greater the level of debt, the more dramatic the inflation must be to counter it. The more dramatic the inflation, the greater the danger that hyperinflation will take place. No government has ever been able to control hyperinflation. If it occurs, it does so quickly and always ends with a crash.Although there are observers (myself included) who frequently discuss what a reserve-currency crash would mean to the world, there is little or no discussion as to how this would impact people on the street level, and perhaps that discussion should begin.When currencies crash, the state often tries to float […] Read More

Report: It’s YOUR Fault: Fed Says Americans Who “Hoard Money” Are To Blame For Poor Economy

Mac Slavo Activist Post Despite arguments to the contrary from the Obama administration, mounting evidence suggests that the U.S. economy is rapidly falling back into negative growth territory. More Americans are out of the workforce than ever before, median household incomes are at levels not seen since 1967, and consumer spending is coming to a veritable standstill. The crisis is apparently so significant that a Federal Reserve governor recently said U.S. policymakers are crafting regulations that will force bank depositors to cover any losses should their financial institutions fail. The question that many are asking is, how did this happen? How, after six years of recovery efforts and trillions of dollars printed, is it possible that the economy is not booming again? This week the Federal Reserve published a report that claims to have figured it out and it turns out that the renewed economic downturn has nothing to […] Read More

“Feeding The Homeless” Is A Crime In Increasingly More US Cities

Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog, Have you ever given food to a homeless person?  Well, if you do it again in the future it might be a criminal act depending on where you live.  Right now, there are dozens of major U.S. cities that have already passed laws against feeding the homeless.  As you will read about below, in some areas of the country you can actually be fined hundreds of dollars for just trying to give food to a hungry person.  I know that sounds absolutely insane, but this is what America is turning into.  Communities all over the country are attempting to “clean up the streets” by making it virtually illegal to either be homeless or to help those that are homeless.  Instead of spending more money on programs to assist the homeless, local governments are bulldozing tent cities and giving homeless people […] Read More
