It has become progressively more evident that the U.S. economy is heading towards utter destruction. Let’s look at some of the clues:
* Local governments nationwide are simply coming apart at the seams. Watch your local newscasts and every few days, at least, there are reports of government credit ratings being downgraded and others looking for ways to avert bankruptcy.
* Recently, the federal government has accrued the largest amount of debt in world history.
* We buy more products annually from the rest of the world than they would ever purchase from us, causing us to plummet further and further down into the sinkhole of financial ruin.
* In the meantime, millions of sought-after jobs that could’ve been given to hard-working Americans are being shipped off overseas, encouraging our once beautiful and productive nation to lapse into a no-man’s-land of post-industrial decay and anarchy.
* Incomes have fallen drastically, unemployment is still at an all-time high, and almost half the people in the country rely on the government for food, housing, or income.
* Yet, no government official or think tank has come up with a solution.
So, the answer to the question everyone is asking is, “Yes, things have really become that bad.”
However, there are steps that we all can take if we wish to avert the personally disastrous effects that we could end up facing if we simply choose to do nothing.
The Time Has Come For You To Act!
1. Your personal solution. To reduce the impact of this collapse, it’s important to eliminate your dependency on the “system” and amass resources that will help sustain you through these trying and difficult times.
* When the economy does indeed collapse, your employer will not be there to hold your hand, nor will Uncle Sam.
* For example, take some time to examine what happened in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and how the government responded to the crisis.
* In times like these, we need to be able to fend for ourselves and our families.
2. Start making the transition from job-dependent to self-reliant. Most people think of a job as a means to live from paycheck to paycheck, which is really a euphemism for “being one paycheck from being broke.” In such a dire situation, what will you do if you lose your job and have slim hope of getting another?
* So, the first step is figuring out an alternative source of income should your job be swept away along with everyone else’s in the wake of the coming financial collapse.
* Today would be an ideal time to assess your skills, talents, and resources for making money on your own – separate from your job. You could provide needed services to others, offer to do consulting work in your field of expertise, sell products, or even consider buying and selling real estate.
* Every dollar you make in extra income will strengthen your self-reliance.
* Use your extra sources of income to pay off your debts, build up your savings, and acquire supplies of food, water, and other necessities that you may need in the tough times ahead.
Reducing your dependence on our current system of day to day life and getting used to relying more on your own resources will help you immensely in the event of a financial collapse. Start today! Be safe, be smart, and take these guidelines to heart!
