Get Your Emergency Food Supply Ready: 10 Signs That The U.S. Economy Is Falling Apart

Have you got your emergency food supply prepared?  An economic collapse is coming, and now is the time to prepare - not after things have completely fallen apart.  Already, the price of food is going up significantly at places like Wal-Mart.  When the economy does finally collapse, the things that are going to be at a premium are necessities like food.  The truth is that we are not always going to be able to run down to the local supermarket and fill up our carts with all of the inexpensive food that we want.  When the U.S. economy implodes and the U.S. dollar enters a period of rampant inflation things are going to be much, much different.

It is important to prepare while we can.  Time is quickly running out.  The following are 10 signs that the U.S. economy is already starting to fall apart….

1 - Unemployment in the United States is completely out of control.  According to one recent survey, 28% of all U.S. households have at least one person that is looking for a full-time job.  Not only that, the number of Americans receiving long-term unemployment benefits has risen over 60 percent in just the past year.  To get an idea of just how rapidly unemployment in the U.S. is spreading, take 38 seconds to watch the absolutely amazing video posted below….

2- Personal bankruptcies continue to soar.  Nationwide, bankruptcy filings rose 20 percent in the 12 month period ending June 30th.

3 - The U.S. housing market is coming apart at the seams.  In July, existing home sales in the U.S. plummeted 27 percent, and sales of new homes dropped to the lowest level ever recorded.  Meanwhile, foreclosures continue to spiral out of control.  One out of every seven U.S. mortgages was either delinquent or in foreclosure during the first quarter of 2010.

4 - Poverty is spreading like a plague in the United States.  The number of Americans on food stamps rose to a new all-time record of 40.8 million in May.  In fact, the number of Americans receiving food stamps has set a new all-time record for 18 consecutive months

5 - The Social Security system is melting down much faster than anticipated.  According to the Congressional Budget Office, the Social Security system will pay out more in benefits than it receives in payroll taxes in 2010.  That was not supposed to happen until at least 2016.

6 - Our financial system has developed a derivatives bubble that is so gigantic that it is hard to find the words to even describe it.  Nobody knows exactly how big the derivatives bubble is, but low estimates place it at around 600 trillion dollars and high estimates put it at around 1.5 quadrillion dollars.  Once the derivatives bubble pops there simply will not be enough money in the entire world to fix it.

7 - The trade deficit is bleeding the U.S. economy dry.  Every single month, tens of billions of dollars more leaves the United States than enters it.  This represents an almost unbelievable transfer of wealth.  At the end of every single month, the United States is poorer than when the month began. 

8 - American consumers have accumulated an astounding amount of debt.  The total amount of consumer debt that Americans consumers owe now stands at a total of approximately 11 trillion dollars.

9 - State and local governments across the United States are literally drowning in debt.  Some state and local governments are in such a financial mess that they have actually starting cutting off even the most essential services.

10 - U.S. government debt is completely and totally out of control.  The U.S. government has accumulated a national debt that will soon surpass the 14 trillion dollar mark.  Things are deteriorating so fast that according to one member of Barack Obama’s national debt commission, the U.S. government will be paying 2 trillion dollars just in interest on the national debt by the year 2020 if nothing changes.

Are you starting to get the picture?

It is time to prepare for the very hard times that are coming.  When the U.S. economy implodes a lot of people are suddenly going to be scrambling for survival.  You do not want to be one of them.

    Thanks for this. I am brand new to storable foods and emergency preparedness….I need all the help I can get. I’m in Texas. We are not known for our Earthquakes, but we have had a few here over the last few years. They were not huge, but who knows what the future holds. I do have family and friends near the earthquake hotspots….so thanks!

    You May Not Survive A Crisis Food)

    What are you going to do if
    you get to the store and
    see empty shelves?
    …We need to talk. There’re some serious events about to hit the US.

    Some you know of already, but some will be brand-new in a threatening way…

    The bottom-line is, any disaster (big or small) could force you to go weeks without food.

    Without the essentials we may not survive. And there’s going to be no way to get them when a crisis hits (or the news even smells a crisis for that matter).

    Think about it:

    How would you survive a terrorist attack that caused widespread panic and shutdown all shops and stores in your area? Would you be forced to beg neighbors for food or be shipped off to FEMA camps?

    Could you and your family survive hurricanes or snowstorms that whipped your neighbors into a “panic-buying” frenzy - grabbing any food they could get their hands on? What if the stores weren’t restocked for weeks?

    How would you live during weeks of “rolling blackouts” making it impossible to store food or for stores to get more food in stock?

    What would you do if your home was hit by floods, washing out roads and making it impossible for stores to supply food for weeks – would you survive?

    How would you deal with protesting labor unions refusing to ship food – would your kids go hungry?

    What would you do if an earthquake rocked your home and disrupted all abilities to get supplies in or out (this would be devastating anywhere, but especially in a city)?
    The sad part is, people don’t think any of these very real disasters will ever happen – or at least, won’t happen to them (maybe this is what you’re thinking)…

    History says otherwise:

    Remember these recent disasters that cost thousands of lives…?

    In 2011 after the Tōhoku Tsunami in Japan over 300,000 people were evacuated to camps where some died. Survivors lined up for blocks outside of 7-11s and grocery stores for a scrap of food.
    We have seen how the US Government,
    FEMA and Local Authorities respond
    to disasters when Hurricane Katrina hit.

    During Hurricane Katrina in 2004 stores closed, looters ran wild and everyday, hardworking people were forced into begging and ended up at FEMA camps.

    The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami wiped out the shops, stores and food transportation channels for many people.

    In the 2010 Haitian Earthquake, followed by the massive Chilean Earthquake as many as 316,000 people were killed and are still struggling to reestablish consist access to food.

    And every year in the US alone there are tornadoes touching down in the southeast, blizzards throughout the northwest, earthquakes out west, severe droughts in central US, wildfires in California, and floods literally everywhere.

    In fact, FEMA states that every American lives in a flood zone. The only question is if you’re in a low, medium, or high-risk area.

    So remembering what can happen we’ve got two options:

    You Can Put All Your Hopes For
    Survival In The Government & FEMA…

    Or You Can Take Survival
    Into Your Own Hands…

    Please believe me when I say, as a fellow American I want to help you and your family survive any way I can. That in mind, you need to know: this could be the most important letter of your life – and your family’s life – so keep reading. You’ll see why in a second…

    As the author of the top-selling guide Survive-Anything I’ve done my homework – and what I found was pretty scary…

    It’s common sense.

    Any 5 year old can tell you – without food and water we’re in trouble…

    A human can die just hours after dehydration – especially if they’re physically exerting themselves (like running from a mob or fighting off an attacker).

    And life without food means a slow and painful death, starting with confusion and diarrhea and ending with spine-wracking convulsions and hallucinations from hell.

    It’s not fun to think about, but even if a crisis only lasts a few weeks it can be deadly to you and your family if you’re not prepared.

    But the scary part is…

    If You Buy The Wrong Food Items,
    You’d Have Been Better Off Buying
    Nothing At All…

    Can you really fight through a crowd to get your kids food - or will you get beat? If you know which food items to buy in advance you’ll never have to find out.
    It’s crushing when your kids realize that their Dad was wrongand your wife feels like you failed to protect the family (even if they’d never say it)…

    Even though I don’t know you from Adam, as my fellow patriot I don’t want that to happen to you or your family and I’m sure you don’t either.

    Why your food is worthless if you buy the wrong packaging (there’s nothing more demoralizing than finding your carefully packed food crawling with maggots and realizing your family is going to have to go hungry…)

    You know that and I know that.

    But spoiled-rotten Americans think they snap their fingers and get what they want.

    The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter how rich, popular or politically correct you are. When people are starving and panicking you’re not going to get what you need without a fight.

    Many Stores Will Close, And Spoiled
    Americans Will Panic…

    So many Americans try to pretend like “nothing is going to happen” or “there’s no reason to ‘freak-out’”.

    And then they run to the store and strip the shelves bare the first time the news even mentions crazy weather (imagine if they announced something like 9/11 again).

    Researcher Kent Arnspiger recently exposed grocery
    stores for their poor planning. They only carry 3-4
    days worth of food (that’s gone in hours during a
    crisis) so you won’t be able to get your hands on things
    your family needs to live – unless you have it in advance.
    The Mayo Clinic recommends you drink about 2 liters of water every day. How much water would you have if, God forbid, terrorists poisoned our water supply or nuclear fallout made rainwater undrinkable? (If you’ve got bonus #1 this isn’t a concern)
    And worst of all Fox News reports “…lack of acreage [in the US]… will usher in a significant food shortage.”
    How people can’t see the obvious truth is beyond me…

    But, when a crisis strikes who are these clueless freeloaders going to try and come to?

    You guessed it: you and your family who were wise enough to stock up on the necessities before the crisis.

    But the problem is…

    If You Think Food Is Expensive Now,
    Imagine What It’s Going To Be Like
    When The Stores Shut Down And
    Farms Can’t Feed Their Livestock…

    This medal remembers Germany after WWI, when a pound of bread cost 3 BILLION Marks. Many economists see the US heading in a similar direction.
    There’s no way to deny that food prices have been skyrocketing as it is. Which makes it even more important to buy these 37 critical items before the prices go even higher.

    After all, when your family is hungry, and you’re not sure where you’ll be able to get these crucial items again would you sell any?

    Heck no.

    If you were going to sell some of your precious food, how much would you charge? That food would be worth its weight in gold. Literally.

    If your family is less than rich or even in some debt right now, you need to buy the essential food items while you still can.

    Look at what happened in Germany when hyperinflation hit – one pound of bread cost 3 billion marks. And the US is on the same crash course.

    Bla bla bla, all doomsday theories. The world economy wont collapse and even if it does just start a gang get some guns and boom your set.

  • Mark

    Why would I boom my own set? Why not someone else’s?

    Now, if we can assume you meant you’re set, you think that only your gang is going to have guns? Prep now while you can and reap the dividends later. We may or may not have a big fall ahead of us, but with the weather etc, we’re certainly looking at higher food prices, and those who have stocked up while it’s cheap will be able to offset the costs of higher food for a while.
