It’s Okay If You Haven’t Prepped for Economic Collapse, But Start Now
Let’s face it. Most people do not have enough food, water, ammunition, or supplies stored away to get through tough times. A study I recall from a couple of years ago said the majority of households do not have enough food on hand for two weeks, let alone two months. With things unfolding in Ukraine and beyond, it makes sense to take a serious look at preparing for things to get worse.
It isn’t just war, though. Pandemic Panic Theater continues with reports of new Covid variants starting to surface, variants that are allegedly more dangerous than Omicron. The supply chain is in shambles. Inflation is skyrocketing. The stock markets are tanking. It’s time to get started if you haven’t already.
It’s not exactly breaking news, as only the most oblivious can recognize how precarious our current situation really is. But the task of preparing for disaster is daunting for many. In this episode of The JD Rucker Show on America Out Loud Talk Radio, I dove into the reasons why I believe an economic collapse or some other disaster is looming.
There wasn’t enough time to get into specifics about prepping, but I gave some quick tips and teased a near-future series of shows in which I dive into more details. One important tip that runs contrary to what most experienced preppers say is that I do not believe we should prioritize the standard “72-hour bug out bag.” In times like these, it’s much more realistic that people will be forced to “bug in,” which means getting together travel supplies is a secondary priority to getting your cupboards, refrigerator, and freezers stocked up.
In the second segment, I talked economics with “Our Gold Guy,” Ira. He’s a sponsor of this show which is why it’s odd that I never had him on before. But in times such as these, getting someone who knows about the current economic situation and who can predict future scenarios is important.
He agreed with me when I said it doesn’t behoove people to get $5,000 worth of gold or silver right now because it’s just not enough to work within a true economic collapse. Those who have larger portfolios and are looking for wealth protection should definitely consider putting more into physical precious metals, but for those with an extra few thousand they’d like to use for items that can be bartering tools, it’s better to look to long-term storage food, ammunition, and other items that will be scarce and valuable after an economic collapse.
Future episodes will cover prepping basics and get more advanced for those who are ready to get started. I’m new to the game, but I’ve learned a lot over the past few months, and I know that with a little money and effort, people can get prepared.
The JD Rucker Political Report can be heard on weeknights at 7 pm ET Listen on iHeart Radio, our world-class media player, or our free apps on Apple, Android, or Alexa. All episodes can be found on podcast networks worldwide the day after airing on talk radio.
