This also means 95% plus will have NO IDEA how to live off of the land or grow their own food...

All these factors will make this crisis much worse than the reset of the 1930's...
 Quoting: Saddletramp


Saddletramp, I admire your optimism, but 5% is grossly overestimated. Just because 5% of people live rurally doesn't mean they know how to grow food let alone live off the land. It's going to be BAD.
 Quoting: withoutatrace


Well, that is just America too, worldwide the rural population is considerably more by percentage...

Also, I would factor in that there are some people that live in town that know how to "get by" with small gardens, etc. It's actually pretty amazing how many towns in Texas where you see chickens running around in poorer neighborhoods...some people, even in town, understand exactly where we are financially and they're taking steps to protect themselves...

All that said, I would agree, that at least initially, 5% is a generous number, but I think once people figure out that the Government isn't going to save them, they will learn how to grow something to eat pretty damn quick...

Re: Breaking: UBS Issues Hyperinflation Warning For U.S.A. & U.K.
I have confidence in two things:

1) The Great Depression was a Great Picnic in comparison to what is about to happen now.

2) The US government agrees with 1) and has a plan to deal with it. The only problem is that the plan that THEY will implement will not be self esteem friendly. Call it false flag, call it epidemic, call it WW3, I have full confidence that the clowns in DC will, as Ebeneezer himself once said, "decrease the surplus population".

But then, I am a cynic.

I agree with OP that once people figure out there'll be no help those who can produce off the land will. Here in Arkansas there is a sizable percentage of people who do have skills. Almost every yard outside of the inner city has a garden and "pet" livestock are very common, too. Skills can be learned fast as long as knowledge is available....and it is. This state is about as agricultural as it gets, however, where even many city dwellers are fairly agrarian at heart.

There is an inner city element that will prove troublesome for us, though. I can't imagine how you GLPrs who live in LA or NY city must feel.

I don't think you have to be a doom-tard, like me, to see the writing on the wall. If no other 2012 doom gets us, this one will. The only way I see to avoid hyper-inflation is if the Maya were right, and the world ends. The first problem with hyper inflation is that nobody will be able to buy food. Then with no-one working, there wont be food for anyone to buy. This will not be a short term problem, it will be years before America, and the world, recover. History tells us hat some countries eventually recover, but some don't. The worst case of hyper-inflation was the Weimar Republic. Never heard of them? That's because when they could not pay their debt to Germany, they became part of Germany. They had no resources to resist, so it was an easy aquisition for Germany before the start of the second world war. Since we owe a few trillion dollars to communist China, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what happens next. We will probably have a choice between the UN and communist China. Either way America will not be free. We will be slaves to the NWO, or China. The only hope is if we keep enough guns to make them think twice about coming here with bad intent. During WW2 the emperor of Japan said "I would never invade America, there would be a gun behind every blade of grass". I hope we still leave that impression in other parts of the world.

 Quoting: Black Knight


The city dwellers that head for the rural parts of the country are screwed too. When the gangs move from the cities they will find prepared and well armed people on the rural properties. Their best bet would be to find some farm land that belonged to people that were not preppers. Those people wont last long. The ones that survive in the short term will be prepared for the long haul. They will also be ready to defend they property.

The city dwellers better steer clear of my familys' 68 acre trust. My extended family and I have been expecting economic and social collapse for years and we are all surprised that it hasn't happened yet. This year we have all felt a renewed urgency in preparing. My latest purchase was a new scythe for cutting hay and wheat by hand.

Among us are two ex-infantrymen, a ex-cavalry scout, and an ex-airborne soldier. Operational security has been atleast tentatively planned. Despite there being 20 of us we have concluded that so much effort will be involved in living that combat style security would be a stretch. We're looking at every soul keeping a firearm at hand, one guard at the five acre living area, which includes about an acre of garden, and another guard at our fields, which are a goodly distance from the living area. That is awefully thin security, but it's the best we can do.

To increase our effectiveness we will drill everyone on reacting to the threat by deploying to prepared defensive works. We can heavily barb wire our most insecure flank (wooded high ground). Our guards will remain concealed so as to surprise the attackers.

Those that we consider non-combatants will go to the keep where they can provide fire from a very safe emplacement. However, flexibility will be required because the distribution of our people cannot be predicted at the time of attack. So our people must all be capable of good judgement. From two hours before daylight until two hours after we will double our guard.

The plan has only been discussed and seems lacking, but security means little if there is no food or fire wood.

 Quoting: Epic Beard Guy


Yea, the economy will get us. There has always been a spectre of economic doom on the horizon, but never has it been caused from a fundamental fatal flaw. This is different. This will be no footnote in history like the problems in the '80s or the tech bubble. This will utterly change history.

I can't imagine any other outcome. There is no saving it. I do expect the government will force the farmers to produce food. That doesn't mean that production won't fall.

My guess is we'll see unemployment of between 50% and 70%. Great depression levels were around 45% if memory serves me, but many of those probably labored at home to eke out a living. I doubt that even 10% of americans were really destitute. Many went to live with family or sharecropped.

A previous commentor mentioned that food stamps won't keep up with food prices. The government will be broke, but they can probably give away food produced on their seized farms or run soup kitchens in every town and city. That would actually probably be a lot cheaper than providing food stamps is now. This assumes they actually want us all to live.

Who knows. They may clean out the cities of helpless people and put them in FEMA camps or draft them for some great war. Maybe the productive country people will be left alone except for seizing a percentage of food production.

A fiat money system require's perpetual inflation to function, or a continual debasement of the currency...

However, a fiat currency is not a perpetual motion machine, and I believe the coming "Hyperinflation" will consist of a massive and hard devaluation of the currency (inflation), all while the equity markets are carshing (deflation)...

The bane of fiat currency is deflation, and when the rate of inflation is added to the equation, the equity markets have "deflated" considerably over the last eleven years...and even though we've had historically low interest rates for the last four years...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18765272


I don't usually argue my economic points, you are free to agree or disagree as you see fit, it's no skin off of my back, but the problem the U.S.A. is currently facing is not just wisked away by fiat money anymore, let me tell you why...

1.) The U.S.A. is quickly losing reserve currency status, and petrodollar status around the world, meaning there is already a glut of federal reserve notes out there in foreign hands that the fed is trying to soak up...why isn't all this extra liquidity already inflating the market, assuming quantative easing is all it takes?

2.) The Repeal of Glass-Stegell has seriously interrupted the flow of cash in the U.S.. Banks are no longer loaning money to small start ups, why should they, it's risky and they don't have to take those risks anymore, they can play the equity and derivative markets and get a better return much faster. So Trickle-Down cash through the banking system to main street has been permenently disabled!

3.) Interest Rates have been too low for too long. This is leading to severe and fundemental problems in the markets, banks no longer even really want cash deposits (that's why most are incredibly short on cash), they can borrow the money on the market cheaper than they can pay depositors, The bank can't make a very good return on loans, so the natural response is to leverage to the hilt and play the market...and why not, you're already too big to fail, so if you make a bad play, the taxpayer and his wallet are always available to you...

4.) The Fed's Toolbox is empty, they can't lower interest rates anymore, and a raise in rates would be instant deflation, the low rates are effecting every asset class and investor class in the world right now, so all they have is Quantative Easing, but in an essentially chroniclly negative interest rate environment, "printing money" even on a computer, offers a continually diminishing rate of return. Ask Europe, where the 1.25 Trillion in Bailouts only bought them six months or so. Leverage continues to increase because it's the natural response to cheap money, but all the leverage is occuring in either Sovereigns or Banks right now, and they are already overleveraged, there is no trickle down to small business'.

So in summary, If you're the Fed you can lower rates which are already so low they are killing fixed income people, the middle class, and a variety of asset classes including previously owned homes which are the main source of Net-Worth for the middle-class, and the markets will respond negatively (see Europe lowering rates a couple of weeks ago) and you won't even have solved any of your problems and nothing will have changed.

You can raise rates and the markets will immediately enter a deflationary spiral.

Or, you can print money on your computer to funnel through your large banks even while you're trying to soak up money from foreign sources that now longer need it because your currency is losing Reserve Status, but then you risk a crash in confidence, currency wars, and trade wars leading to loss of investment from foreign sources and hyperinflation/deflation carsh combination...so take your choice, because there are no more tools in the tool box my friend!

Or you can choose to think I'm crazy and keep burying your head in the sand...like I said, no skin off of my back.

UBS Issues A Hyperinflation Warning For The U.S.A. and U.K...

From Zerohedge.com

From UBS: "We think that a creditor nation is less at risk of hyperinflation than a debtor nation, as a debtor nation relies not only on the confidence of domestic creditors, but also of foreign creditors. We therefore think that the hyperinflation risk to global investors is largest in the US and the UK.

This is far from true. It has to be remembered that the creditor nations all submitted to American economic dominion and were built up from the ground up with American venture capital after WW2 and the Cold War. American investment in these countries is massive and the remittances are gargantuan. You don't see them but that is not to say that they aren't there.

Which is why I consistently maintain, America is a long way away from collapsing as is the US dollar. It also illustrates why the US in essence is the UN.

I know it all sounds incredible but remember America economically reshaped the world and despite appearances, is the pivot across which global capitalism is balanced.

People who refuse to acknowledge the collapse of the dollar are probably, for the most part, paid government shills whose job it is to blow enough smoke up our collectives asses to try to keep us asleep until the final fleecing occurs.

I have been watching and researching this intensely for many years now and it has been well over two years since our "friendly" lender countries have been taking active steps, month after month to crash the dollar slowly to allow themselves to minimise their losses when it happens and take full advantage afterwards.

Don't kid yourselves, lots of people will make lots of money and get lots of cheap stuff when this happens, just not any Americans. Oh, I don't include sellout politicians or bankers as Americans, by the way.
