Skip to comments.Planning and Preparing (for a chaotic future)
Posted on 04/02/2013 6:13:58 AM PDT by crusher
In recent conversations about girding for the uncertain future I have often suggested that folks accrue the means of productivity, beginning with water, dirt, and seeds to grow food, followed by skills, tools, and raw materials to fix and create useful things. I am not certain if I have mentioned a helpful reference in this matter but it does reflect the course I am following.
Thirty years ago I discovered the book "The Alpha Strategy" (available in its entirety at several web sites including http://zombieprepdotnet.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/book2-preface.pdf) and have found it to be instrumental in forming my thoughts. Pete Ferron featured it in his most recent "Shrugging Out Podcast" when exploring the issues of asset protection. While Pugsley is exploring the corrosive effects of ongoing inflation, I found his general mostly-non-ideological strategy to be appropriate for just about any consideration in preparing for a possibly chaotic time (read:Cyprus -- yes, I believe they will be eventually coming for YOUR savings starting with private retirement accounts).
