You can go check out Ann Barnhardt's blog and get the original, or you can check out Western Rifle Shooters and see all they have to say on the topic. I've been telling y'all this all along ... we're screwed. This is one of the reasons that I don't feel there's a whole lot of value in the survival forum simply talking about canning beans and storing food and water. Those stop-gap measures just mean you will die slower than the rest of civilization.
If you want to survive, you'd better completely rearrange your lifestyle. Get back to a self-sustaining agrarian methodology and get to a survivable location. Living in a subdivision next to a city of 10 million potentially starving people isn't going to be a good situation no matter HOW good of a gardener you are. I think if you're not living like your great-grandfather did then you're probably going to be in a world of hurt when this house of straw comes apart. Ann Barnhardt certainly seems to think so. I'd like to know what preparations and adjustments she's making in her own personal life. The stock traders and professional money people are all looking pretty scared these days.
Here's a snippet from the lovely Ann's post:
And no, there will not be a 1:1 offsetting in a collapse, because the collapse will be asymmetrical, and the bankrupt party will first pursue FULL payment on its “longs” (think of these as accounts receivables) while its “shorts” (accounts payable) will only pay out 20 cents on the dollar OR LESS. In other words, these entities will tear each other apart in a mad dogfight and this dogfight will take the entire world down with it.
