Prepping: 15 Things That Will Mostly Happen In Cities When The Economy Finally Collapses

We should all be prepared for what’s coming next.  In order to prepare effectively, we need to know what will happen when the economy finally collapses under its own weight.  The creation of trillions in excess (((currency))) out of thin air can only go on for so long, and we are approaching the end.

Epic Economist put together a great video detailing the 15 things (and yes, some are a little scary) that will happen when the economy collapses.  At this point in time and history, it is no surprise that an economic collapse is coming for us. When the world’s largest economy is deep down in a recession, many other countries will not be late to follow the same path.

The financial breakdown the world is about to face over the next several years will be an unprecedented catastrophe, especially considering that the underlying problems from previous crashes were never fixed, only mended together. A real repair would require a complete restructuration in the system, and the elites were never interested in fixing the system that they set up to screw the rest of us out of everything we’ve worked for.

These are the 15 things that will happen that you should be prepared for:

1 -Fuel Shortages, or rationing of fuel
2 -Carjackings rise
3- Interstate Trucking is compromised, limiting the supply of essential goods
4-Defaults in garbage disposal and urban sanitation
5- Food scarcity, a disruption in food supply chains
6-Water quality drops and municipal supply disruption
7-Survival mode slaughtering of local wildlife and zoo animals for food.
8-Pets go missing
9-Civil agitation leads to turbulence in the streets
10-Attacks become more frequent
11-Kidnappings Increase
12-Gang Activity Increases
13-Banks Close
14-Hospitals become Overloaded
15-Martial Law Enacted

Knowing that these things are likely to happen when the economy collapses should help give you an idea of what you’re going to need to be prepared.  Make sure you know how to defend yourself and your family. Make sure you have a way to filter water.  You will need to be able to avoid crowds and live on your own, potentially off the grid. Become self-reliant and do not put your faith in the system.  Most people are still desperately fighting to keep the system intact in spite of the awareness that it’s rigged and corrupt.  Instead, leave the system, put your faith in yourself, improve critical thinking skills, and create your back up plans.

Here is my story. Some of you may have read it, but, I like to post this to let you know that SOME headed the warnings early on. Back around 2000 I started to read about the founding of this nation, where we are now and how it is vastly different than the intentions of those who built this nation. I was in NJ at the time, and starting listening to the early version of podcasts, mainly from an older gentleman who lived through the Great Depression and had relocated in anticipation of it…..or worse…..happening again. He talked about the unsustainable debt, mass inflows of people from incompatible cultures, advancing surveillance/police state, the vulnerabilities of the power grid and ‘just in time’ delivery of household goods. And, most importantly, how the average American had become complacent and used to all things flowing to them, rather than working to provide for some of the basics in life: Water, food and shelter.

I was in NJ at the time (I grew up there), and purchased a book called ‘Strategic Relocation: North American Guide to Safe Places’. After reading it, I said: ‘I have to leave very soon. I do not know how much time I have remaining, but, this is a bad place to be when everything turns upside down’. So, I visited several areas mentioned in that book. In 2004 I landed in the Missouri Ozarks and immediately was drawn to it. I said, ‘This is where I want to move’. Back then, civilian contracts on military bases for pharmacists (my profession) were easy to find and VERY lucrative. I moved to the Fort Leonard Wood area in 2006 and went to work. I had 3 goals: Pay off my consumer debt (approximately $150,000.00), save for a piece of land in the countryside with NO MORTGAGE, and create a food storage supply which would be enough for me for about 5 years (that includes open pollinated seed storage and junk silver savings, too).

I was free from debt in June 2009, had my food storage goal reached by 2012 and had enough money saved for the property I currently live on by 2014. The previous owners and I went back and forth in negotiations (they did NOT want to move in 2014, but, did the following year) until we settled in Sept. 2015. I moved to the Southern Missouri Ozarks in November. I live on 20 acres, 2100 sq ft home, 75×25 workshop (which includes a leanto for animals and firewood on one side, and an additional shelter for vehicles on the other. I have a private well, septic tank, home is heated with wood, backup generator which runs on propane….of which I have over 1,000 gallons in reserve. I had been working for a large pharmacy chain at the time and transferred to this area. After working for it for a little over a year, I left and started to work for 5 small independent pharmacies, on a part time or per Diem basis. My income dropped by about 30%, but, with no debt, low taxes and regulations (my county has NO zoning and planning and property taxes are $500.00 annually….no typo, either $500.00), I could afford the pay cut. Working less for wages, it gave me more time to work on the farm with gardening and home improvement projects.

Fast forward to today, when 2020 went from the mundane to a completely chaotic world, I was ready. Still scared, but ready. When people needed food, they got it. When someone needed money, I had it. When others had their work projects dried up, I needed a skilled professional. My life has not changed much. Here is a good thing to remember too. When things like this happen, it is wise to not boast and brag about how you prepared and they did not. Help them any way you can. Be kind and peaceful. I own firearms, but, I do not believe that I am going to sit here and act like that is how I am going to live through this. I will do so by being friendly and loving to my neighbors and others (we are having a neighborhood barbecue in a couple of weeks to discuss what is happening and how we can lift each other up).

So, while the rest of the world was fiddling, I was working and saving and preparing. Now that we are here, I want to help those that I can and give advice and hope to those who are fearful. If you are of a mind to do so, turn to God and be thankful for what you have and support those worthy of your help.

For those of you thinking about this choice – you can do it.  We went from living in a major city in a huge house and running a business and paying over $55,000 a year in property tax on the house and business – and 5 years later we are 100% self sufficient in a beautiful area of the country with everything paid for. Its not easy, and there are a lot of sacrifices to make it work, but it is the best damn thing I have ever done. And our property tax for the same size house with 26 acres and a running year round creek, along with the the large commercial building in the industrial park area of the city for our business is now only $5,600 a year – and the people at the tax assessor apologize because it so high! One tenth of what we were paying in Texas!

In Collin county where we were, they literally spat on you every year and said point blank to you should count your self lucky to be paying only $55,000 a year and acted like they were doing you a huge favor. It was sickening.

Our are area is one of the most “conservative’ in the country and also the most self reliant. Our county can feed itself, provide plenty of hydro electric power and also is one of the most heavily armed areas of the country.

And we are way more than a gas tank away from any blue **** infested hell hole city.

Same here. I am about 4hrs from St. Louis, at least 5 from Kansas City, 3hrs from Little Rock and at least 5 from Memphis. The closest city of any size near me, and the one in which I work about 50% of the time, is Springfield, MO. It is a little over an hour from me, has a relatively low crime rate and a population of 160k, 90% of which is white. My biggest costs are fuel and vehicle maintenance. I am fastidious about keeping them in top condition, because that is how I make my money. 

That said, I had friends of mine call me earlier in the week. They are very old friends, married with two children. Half joking and half serious, they said, ‘Do you have room for 4 more there?’. They still live in NJ and are freaked out by what has been going on. The most sobering and sad thing they said was, ‘You know, you have been talking about this for years… and you were right’. So, they have ZERO preparations, a mortgage, car payments, kids in the mass retardation facilities called ‘schools’, jobs they do not want to leave, etc. You know the drill. With all of that, my friend’s wife says, ‘We have been talking about buying a taser. What do you think?’. I almost laughed. They have never owned any form of self defense and are prepared for nothing. Yet, buying a taser is their bright idea. I said, ‘You better be prepared to hunker down right where you are. Get together with your neighbors. Develop good relations with them and support each other’. After I hung up the phone with them, I sat there and thought about our conversation. When they opened up with, ‘Please take us in’, I concluded the following… and no malice towards them, of course. They were not thinking of this, only their own survival. What they were in essence saying was, ‘We spent all of those years vacationing, spending time and money on frivolous things, relying on today’s calm to predict tomorrow’s future and laughing at people like you “Doom and Gloom” types, while you were working, being busy and goal oriented and hurrying to put your plans in place… NOW, we want YOU to bail our chestnuts out of the fire’. I love them. They are responsible for their own undoing, if that is what happens.

I have done all this also. All the situations that are occurring now “out there”, I have remained completely untouched.  The whole system does not need to fall for a person to exhibit a little common sense.  I was prepared for all this currently happening – and in fact don’t even have to go “out there” except once a month just to replenish a few perishables.  Of course, people can sit around and call this author a doomsdayer but as a person who just missed the great depression, common sense dictates that a person who works toward being as little dependent on the outer world, is a wise person.  My taxes are also less than $450 a year.

I agree 100%. When I moved out here, family and friends laughed at me. LAUGHED and mocked. ‘What are you moving there for, END OF THE WORLD?’. ‘Don’t you get lonely? You should consider moving to a city. There are more single women there’. Everyone gave me practical advice for which I never asked, nor had any use. When you tell city people that you are moving to the country, they say the most ignorant things. Truly ignorant: ‘Are you gonna be a farmer?’. ‘What are you going to do with all that land?’. ‘It’s too quiet in the country. I need the sound of traffic’. I used to question myself and my motives, even within the past year. With all of the outside opinions being completely contrary to my goals, I was letting the peer pressure get to me. I am human. After January, my focus reemerged and I have been getting up every single morning thanking God for bringing me here, providing me with what I need, my good health and all else around me.

I did watch the video linked above and you know what common element all of the 15 problems have? They all happen in CITIES. Even in the destruction of Germany at the end of WWII, the Bavarian Alps saw very little impact of nearly 6 years of war. If you had a farm there, which was the norm, you provided for yourself just fine.
