How To Prepare For The “Coming Financial Apocalypse”

with No Comments

I receive a fair number of videos, emails and articles about the coming financial crash. It is always nigh. It is always imminent. And, unfortunately, it almost always includes some bad financial advice.

The cause is deficit spending, the growing debt, entitlement spending, rising taxes, the elite, the banking cartel, the energy companies, Obamacare, aging baby-boomers, the administration, the NSA, the government, the world government…

The expected outcome is vague but terrifying. The banks will close, trade will cease, mobs will roam the city streets looking for people to eat. The cause and effect for these horrors isn’t clear, but what it clear is that you need to take action in order to save yourself and those you love from this inevitable collapse of civilization.

Being prepared is always a good idea. But you should be just as prepared for the possibility that the world as we know it is not ending.

Here is my series of articles on how to prepare for the “coming financial apocalypse.”
