Major economies of the world are facing increasing fiscal deficits, high rates of unemployment, rising inflation, the collapse of banking systems, demand and supply anomalies, political uncertainty and more.

How To Survive a Financial Apocalypse

  1. 1. How to Survive a Financial Apocalypse
  2. 2. Signs of an Impending Financial Apocalypse “The whole system is going down. Pull your money out your Fidelity account, your Scwhab account, and your ETFs.” -Gerald Celente, founder of The Trends Research Institute
  3. 3. Major economies of the world are facing: Increasing fiscal deficits High rates of unemployment Rising inflation The collapse of banking systems Demand and supply anomalies Political uncertainty
  4. 4. Unfortunately… Signs like these show a downward spiral in our economy that will continue to get worse as debt grows, inflation rises, and more people leave the work force. Even if you have a job now, this won’t protect you in the event of an economic meltdown.
  5. 5. Are you prepared for the ensuing chaos?
  6. 6. When Will This Economic Collapse Occur? “There is definitely going to be another financial crisis around the corner.” -Mark Mobius, head of the emerging markets desk at Templeton Asset Management
  7. 7. Sooner Than You May Imagine  Many economists and financial experts believe that signs of the collapse are quite visible right now, both in our economy, as well as the changing face of the world economy.  It may just take another natural disaster like Katrina or Sandy or a man-made one like the horrors of 9/11 to push us off the brink.  A major Middle East war could triple gas prices, triggering economic catastrophe.
  8. 8. However… As scary as these doom and gloom predictions sound, however, as a visionary, you can devise plans to counter the situation and still come out financially intact.
  9. 9. Start Getting Ready Now “It’s better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.” - Jackie Joyner Kersee
  10. 10. Reduce your dependency on the Job. Take steps to clear your debt. Look for ways to reduce your expenses. Learn useful tasks like hunting, fishing, growing food and self defense techniques. Start regular exercises to keep fit.
  11. 11. Invest in Necessities “Forewarned, forearmed; to be prepared is half the victory.” - Miguel de Cervantes
  12. 12. • Non-perishable foods, water and salt • Coins will be in great demand, since paper money might be worthless. • Gun or bow & arrows for hunting • Gardening equipment • Handyman tools for building and repair • Farmland with a source of fresh water • Cows and chickens for meat, milk, and eggs
  13. 13. Ways to Make Money During an Apocalypse “It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.” -Charles Darwin
  14. 14. Acquire Extra Supplies to Sell  Stock up on extra non-perishable foods.  Buy farmland to grow fruits, vegetables, have a place to hunt, and a fresh water supply.  Get livestock now for a fabulous return on investment.  Collect extra tools and equipment. Demand will be high and so will the price.
  15. 15. Develop Valuable Skills & Knowledge  Marketable skills: cooking, sewing clothes, building, gardening, self defense, and more  Make friends & share complementary supplies. You both will prosper.  Explore alternate sources of energy. This can become a great marketable knowledge.  Learn natural remedies and keep a well-stocked first aid kit. Others will gladly pay you to use your skills to help them if they're sick or injured.
  16. 16. Mistakes to Avoid “You just come out the other side. Or you don't.” - Stephen King, The Stand
  17. 17. Complacency Complacency is your worst enemy. It’s important to realize that economic collapse really can happen – and it can happen to you! History shows that varying degrees of economic disaster have occurred all over the world many times. Our recent recession was only a taste of what may be coming. The more prepared you are, the better you’ll fare. It’s smart to plan for the worst but hope for the best.
  18. 18. Ignoring Your Debt Your debt burden can follow you, even in an economic catastrophe, making the situation all the worse for you. Freeing yourself of debt also frees up your money, giving you the option of spending your money on what you see fit. You can better prepare for the future without debt.
  19. 19. Waiting Too Long to Get Started There are things you can do today: This week, buy enough extra water and food to last your family 1 day. Next week, buy extra food for another day. Continue until you have a 3-4 week supply. Gather together an emergency kit with: extra food, water, clothes, blankets, first aid supplies, a flashlight with extra batteries, matches, and more. Keep your kit readily accessible. Stash some cash, and add a little each week. Include gold and silver coins in your stash.
  20. 20. Not Having a Plan •It’s easier to make headway on your preparations when you’re organized. •Write down what you wish to accomplish, along with a timeline for your tasks. •Make a list of the items you need to obtain and then just check them off as you get them.
  21. 21. What Will Happen After the Apocalypse? “Man's mind is his basic tool of survival.” - Ayn Rand
  22. 22. A New Reality: The World as We Know It Will Change After the collapse, we can expect changes like these:  More stringent laws and regulation of banks and creditors.  No easy money in the market. Lending norms will be tightened.  We’ll learn to live within our means.  We’ll become more self-sufficient.
  23. 23. Hope With every crisis comes the wisdom to deal with it. Just as we emerged from the Great Depression, we will determine a way to get past an economic meltdown. Gradually, the situation will improve as we restore supply routes and find our economic footing again.
  24. 24. Looking Forward “Be prepared.” -Boy Scout Motto
  25. 25. Take Responsibility It’s important for you to take responsibility for your future. Your survival – financially and otherwise – depends on it. Make a foolproof, clear plan of action to take care of your family during an Apocalypse. Be able to release your dependence on the current system, at least for a few weeks.
  26. 26. Bond With Your Neighbors A closely knit community can fulfill each other’s needs through barter, without much dependency on the government. This is how the smarter groups will stay afloat, even in times of a great economic collapse.
  27. 27. Implement These Strategies
