Preparing For A Long Term Economic Depression

July 27, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

great-depression-2

In case you haven’t noticed, the world is slowing down. More specifically, the worlds consumption and production. What amazes me is how you wouldn’t have any idea whatsoever if all you did was watch the mainstream news at 6-oclock.

China’s stock market is in a major crash. The reason? Industrial output is weak and China’s economy is slowing. Why? Because they’re not shipping as much ‘stuff’ elsewhere like they used to. Why? Because people aren’t buying as much ‘stuff’. Why? Because most people are tapped out. Why? Because we have reached or are rapidly reaching ‘peak debt’.

July 27, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

While looking back through history, the straight razor was the tool that was used to shave. Before the days of electricity and electric shavers and before the days of disposable razors, the straight razor got the job done. In fact, a straight razor can get the job done today just as well.

While so many preppers are filling their pantries and closets with supplies, what about your shaving needs after the SHTF?

I just picked up a straight razor from a USA knife maker who not only makes his products here in the United States, but they are hand hammered and hand forged. The real deal…

Open-forum. Voice your opinions, Q&A, what you did this week…

The most read new article from this past week was “EMP – Can This Happen?”. Fortunately it has not happened (yet), and there are lots of opinions regarding the plausibility of such an event. It sure gets you to thinking about worst-case-scenario preparedness…

Its hard to believe there’s only one week left in July – where is this summer going? Never seems to be enough time to get in all the projects that I want to… 😉

Okay, lets hear from you:

July 24, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

food-prices-are-up

While looking at recent government statistics regarding the CPI (Consumer Price Index), I notice (as most of you instinctively know) that food prices have been going up much higher than the government acclaimed inflation rate – which they continually tell us is low.

Well the fact is that by even their own numbers, many food prices have increased substantially – even during just this past year.
