I am already close to that destination. I must admit I am beginning to think about what things I need to have on hand. I am not sure anyplace is safe, there are large populations in Halifax, Moncton, St. John, Fredricton. With a total collapse, these populations must migrate south, the northern climate is not conducive to supporting this many people "off the land".
Wood will not last long, we have already reduced our forests in E. Me to shrubs by burning them in big boilers to send "green" energy to Paulie in Mass. I recall him saying the rest of NE would dry up and blow away if not for the economy of Boston. There is a reverse to that also.
I have pictures of my town here from over 100 yrs ago that show not a single tree except the Elms planted by the roads, for as far as the eye can see. Just to support the population of this town. They needed to farm also to eat. The population was actually higher in those days, due to the abundence of natural resources. Those people traveled on ships, had animals :shock: to do the heavy work, and worked extremely hard from daylight to dark. They also exploited the rivers to make energy. :shock:
I have an ancestor that suffered from double hernia's and had to toil everyday to survive. One day he filled his pockets with rocks and walked into the ocean and drowned, his only way out of his lifestyle. There will be many, many people unwilling to live the way life used to be in the good old days.

by the way, good luck with your move, there are worse places to live then NB.

Well, there goes an hour and a half of my life I will never get back. What a flaming idiot he is! After over an hour of listening to how the sky is going to fall he tells you he is going to give you the information you need at no charge, then half an hour later he seems to forget that and tells you that for $50 (half price!) you can subscribe to his newsletter. It holds secrets that are so powerful he can not tell you in the video. After all, and I'm not sure if I'm allowed to quote him so I will paraphrase : It's a 100% secret and the fewer people that know about it the better. (But you can have it for $50)

What a bull crap artist! ( It's just my opinion, it could be he's right. I, though ,can tell you how to double your money and I 100% guarantee it, and I will tell you, for free, right now: Fold it in half and put it in your pocket.)

That being said, I do believe that preparing for the future isn't a bad idea. Being able to stay alive for 6 months or a year from tomorrow without anyone's help can only be a good thing, but I don't think sending this flame-wad $50 is going to help you much.

Of course this is a long winded advertisement, but; it doesn't invalidate many of the points made. The thing to do is what would be sensible to do anyway. Don't blow your money on stuff you don't really need. Get out of debt as soon as you can. Build up a savings account with enough money to last awhile. Learn how to do more with less. Learn how to be as independent and self sufficient as possible. Everyone should be doing all of this regardless of what the future may bring.

We may or may not see the true definition of hyperinflation, but I believe we are seeing and will continue to see massive inflation.

The official word is there is no inflation - yes? This is despite board members here complaining about food, diesel and gas prices. There is only one problem Ben can't admit inflation even if he believes it himself and here is why. INTEREST RATES.

Right now the Federal Reserve-manufactured Funny Money Universe of zero interest rate policy (ZIRP) and debt monetization via Quantitative Easing 2 (QE-2)—the Treasury Department has shelled out over $215 billion in interest since the start of fiscal year 2011. The total is projected to be over $420 billion for the year. This on a FY 2011 deficit of $1.6 trillion. So roughly one in four dollars the Federal government borrows goes to pay the interest on the debt.

Or looked at another way: About 2.8% of the United States’ gross domestic product goes to pay interest on the Federal debt. That’s bigger than any other individual player in the U.S. economy except the Federal government itself. It’s bigger than most sectors of the U.S. economy—including Technology, Transport, or Education. That’s right: The interest on the Federal government debt is bigger than those entire sectors. Sad but true.

Or looked at still another way: About 12.2% of the total U.S. government’s expenditures ($3.45 trillion) goes to pay the interest on the Federal debt. That’s more than every single government department except Defense—the fourth biggest expenditure overall, behind defense, Midicare/Medicaid and Social Security. In other words, these are ideal conditions for the Federal government to be carrying such a monstrous debt load. The Long-Term Composite Rate is at 4.1%, and the Fed is printing roughly half the FY 2011 deficit via QE-lite and QE-2. In these ideal conditions for the Federal government to be carrying debt, the interest is $420 billion!

What happens when these ideal conditions no longer apply? What happens when QE-2 ends in June, like it’s supposed to? What happens when ZIRP ends because inflation is so high it can no longer be finessed away, and the Fed has to at least give the perception that it is trying to halt inflation by way of interest rate hikes?

You don’t need a whole spreadsheet to crunch the numbers: As QE-2 and ZIRP both end, the Federal government will find that its interest payments will grow rapidly, and I’m thinking catastrophically so get your coal now!

QE-2 will not end in June because the Federal government cannot afford to have it end: The Treasury needs the Federal Reserve to keep on buying its debt via QE-3, because there are simply not enough buyers for Treasuries at their current yields. QE-3 will start immediately after the end of QE-2. A lot of people disagree: They think 3-4 months will pass after the end of QE-2—and then the Fed will start up QE-3, big time .

But setting aside for the moment continued central bank monetization of the Federal government debt by way of a possible QE-3, let’s concentrate on interest rates—just interest rates:

Each basis point of Federal Reserve interest rate hikes will translate into a 0.01% hike in the Fed funds rate translates to $1.25 billion a year in additional interest payments. Thus a measly 0.25% hike in rates will turn into $25 billion in additional interest payments a year—at least. Maybe even as high as $31 billion in additional interest payments—with just a 0.25% hike. And as regards a full-on, inflation-fighting hike of 1.5%? That would add an additional $150 billion in interest payments—just like that. An additional $150 billion in interest payments is something the Federal government simply cannot afford. The United States cannot afford it.

So in other words, the United States cannot afford inflation. Or more properly speaking: The United States’ fiscal balance sheet cannot afford to fight inflation. Think about it: If there is a rise in inflation, then the Federal Reserve would have no other option but to raise interest rates at least a couple of percentage point ut the Federal government cannot afford such a drastic rise in rates. Not when a 1% rise in rates translates into an additional $100,000,000,000.
Historically, a real inflation-fighting approach means raising rates roughly 4.5% above the annualized rate of inflation: That’s what Paul Volcker did in 1980, to reign in the spiraling inflation produced by the ‘79 Oil Shock. Even with such a massive rise in interest rates, it still took Volcker almost four years to bring inflation to heel—which gives lie to Ben Bernanke’s arrogance in thinking that inflation can be cut off as simply as turning off his printing press.

If a similar scenario were to happen today—that is, a sudden and grotesque rise in inflation that simply cannot be explained away, and a determined effort to fight this inflation by way of the only tool available, which is severe and sustained interest rate hikes à la Paul Volcker—then the Federal government would find its interest payments rising by multiples from its current levels. To mimic Volcker’s approach—a Fed funds rate jump to just shy of 20%—would mean an additional $2 trillion a year. In just interest payments. I remember Paul as a not so young man - when he came out, cigar hanging from his lips and spoke the world trembled and I wondered if my retirement fund was about to go up in smoke (which it had twice already and twice since).

That won’t happen, of course. If it ever did, Ben Bernanke would be dragged from the Eccles Building (the FED palace) and lynched right there on Constitution Avenue.

Just a bump up by a couple of percentage points is possible. And just such a modest bump—just a mere 3% above its current levels—would represent $300,000,000,000 is additional yearly interest payments.
How would such a bump up in interest payments be financed? Simple: Either more debt issuance, or cutting spending.

We have seen—depressingly—how spending cuts will never happen.

On the other hand, the political class irrespective of party affiliation is more than willing to issue more debt, in order to cover up its failure of leadership.
Yet to add on only $300 billion per year to the deficit, in order to finance the interest on the debt, will push the deficit to over $2,000,000,000,000 per year—nearly 15% of the United States’ gross domestic product.
The United States can’t afford such a rise in the cost of borrowing. It simply cannot raise the cash to pay such a mind-numbing amount of interest. There simply aren’t enough buyers of Treasury bonds in the world to finance that level of debt. There just aren’t, end of story. The one—the only entity that could absorb that level of Treasury issuance would be the Federal Reserve. And the only way they could absorb that amount of Treasury issuance is by printing money:
QE- to infinity.

Bernanke realizes that inflation is on the rise—it’s plain for all to see. But he realizes too that if he acknowledges that inflation is on the rise, he’ll be forced to raise rates. And if he does so, he either bankrupts America—because the U.S. cannot afford to pay the higher vig a rise in rates would bring about. Or he breaks the dollar—because the Fed would be forced to carry out QE-∞, in order to finance the Federal government deficit. So instead of raising rates—which would bankrupt the American government and/or force Argentine-style money-printing via QE-to infinity - Bernanke is trying to pretend inflation doesn’t exist.

So board members stop complaining about rising fuel prices - it's just your imagination.

Wow , ME is mostly deforested, damn, another place I can't move to.

Damn it, I just filled my pockets full of rocks and walked into our deep pond. As I had a hernia I think I am qualified. Pond has filled in and it is only 4' deep - now I am covered in mud and freezing, time to take a shower. Perhaps I will double my Mr. Beer home brewing order this spring. HAH, what spring? My wife tells me beer is loaded with gluten and I'm allergic. OTOH, the other end of the pond is deeper. She also tells me I tend to be unstable - go figure.

1. FRANK PORTER STANSBERRY was successfully sued by FTC. He had to pay a 1.5 million dollar fine for making misrepresentations and defrauding investors.
See: http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/comp18090.htm

2. Stansberry claims a weak dollar is a bad thing that will destroy the US. If that was true why would China and every other country fight to keep their currencies artificially low? A weak dollar would attract tourists from S. America, Europe and Asia, which would bring an influx of foreign capital. It would make US products more attractive. It would lead to Americans throwing away less food, and throwing away less money on goods they really don’t need. A weak dollar would revitalize American industry, and improve our trade imbalance. A weak dollar would be good for the American worker. A weak dollar would attract foreign investment in American companies and real estate.

3. In a kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. The US may be having econonmic problems, but most other countries are in much worst shape.

4. Printing money and monetizing a debt can lead to inflation, if not hyper-inflation. That part is true. But in a recession or a depression “cash is king,” money goes up in value, commodities and real estate go down in a value. You can print money and monetize a debt during a recession, because recessions are deflationary. Ben Bernacke is a pretty smart guy. He did his PhD on the 1929 depression. The job of the Fed is partly to prevent inflation, and to avoid deflation. In bad economic times, no one has money, and credit is hard to get. There is a liquidity crisis.

QE-1 and QE-2 were just what the doctored ordered, because recession-deflation are more a threat now than an overheated economy and inflation. Homes and real estate losing value, and a falling stock market are recessionary-deflationary. Helipcopter Ben has come to our rescue pulling us out of a downward spiraling vortex with his helicopter, with his printing money and easing credit in a time where money is a scarce commodity.

5. Who are the big losers if the US monetizes its debt? China, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Japan. They are the biggest holders of US debt. Will you shed a tear?

6. When you owe a creditor a lot of money, your creditors have a stake in your success. If the US dollar sinks who loses more than the US? I am thinking of a five-letter word that starts with a captical “C.”

7. The FED has powerful weapons in its aresonal to curtail inflation. Ben correctly believes the greater danger now is recession-deflation, not inflation. Should inflation really become an issue, he can stop it in a millisecond. Ben follows US inflation closer than any other American. Ben is a sharp guy.

8. If the US Stock market collapses, that is recessionary-deflationary. The more the US stock market goes down, the more Ben can pump money into the economy without creating inflation.

9. Ben looks at every part of the US economy for signs of inflation to keep it in check if necessary.

10. Congress can do many things to raise revenue. The US has one of the lowest tax rates of any country in the world, not one of the highest. My father was in the 90% tax bracket. That did not disincentivize him. He continued to work hard to make money. So did every other entrepreneur. We can lower our military spending. We can close many loopholes, and stop giving so many tax credits. One of the biggest loop-holes is allowing wealthy individuals to use charitable foundations as tax shelters. Charitable foundations do not have to spend much money on charitable causes. Charitable foundations can invest their capital. They can pay huge salaries to their founders, and to friends and family members of their founders. That is why Howard Hughes and Bill Gates created their charitable foundations. They did so to avoid paying taxes, not because they are such caring individuals.

11. Social Security can easily be fixed by raising the age of retirement, and means-testing those who get benefits. It should be insurance to care for people who are too old to work, who do not have savings to care for themselves to live a decent life. Social Security should be a safety net, it should pay benefits on a sliding scale, giving more to those who need it most. Today, Social Security pays wealthy people money who do not need benefits. Means-testing would save the system a lot of money.

12. Yes, a small percent of the population pay a large percent of taxes. That is because a small percent of the US population earns and controls most US wealth. Wealthy Americans have the most disposable income. They can most afford to pay more taxes. They can pay more taxes without lowering their standard of living. It makes sense to tax people with money more, and people who can't afford shelter and food less.

13. The rich do not create wealth. This is a fallacy. Creative people, innovators, entreprenerus and inventors create wealth. Most creative people, innovators, entrepreneurs and inventors are not wealthy. They start their businesses with borrowed money. Amazon.com, Google, Microsoft, Apple all started with borrowed money.

12. Money flows up, trickles down. When the poor and middle class have money they spend it on consumer goods and services that create jobs and wealth for everyone. When wealthy people get more money, they save it, not spend it. They buy frivilous, luxury items like dresses that cost tens of thousands of dollars, diamonds, $20,000 watches, mansions, yachts, jets, homes, and high priced cooks that relatively speaking employ much fewer people. It is the spending of the lower and middle classes that drive the economy of any nation, not the spending of the upper class. Which helps a nation’s economy more. One rich guy doing a huge remodeling job on his home, or 10,000 middle-class home owners remodeling their homes?

13. Ronald Reagan tripled the national debt, and nearly drove the US into bankruptcy. Ronald Reagan was the greatest deficit spending president of all time. Little wonder the US economy grew in his time. All knowleable parties agree, Ronald Reagan had no effect on the fall of the Soviet Union.

14. Al Gore never said he invented the internet. Al Gore did create the internet we use today, by sponsoring legislation that allowed the public to use it. Prior to Al Gore, the internet was just a tool of the US military and US universities. But the liberal, left-wing biased media kept the truth a secret from the US public, because they wanted to Al Gore to lose.

14. There is no real argument amoung climatologists that global warming is taking place. Out of 20,000+ climatologists, less than 10 claim global warming is not taking place. Less than 50 claim man is not the cause. The evidence for global warming is overwhelming. The evidence man is causing global warming is overwhelming. Man is having a profound effect on his enviroment. There are much fewer fish in the ocean. Fish are becoming smaller, because small fish are able to swim through the nets of trawlers who fish with nets that are miles long. Man has fished many species of ocean fish to verge of extinction. Mankind did create an observable hole in the ozone. Most people who don’t believe in global warming, do not understand the principle of a green house. They don’t understand how green houses trap heat. Glass allows sunlight to pass through it, but blocks infrared heat energy from escaping. Certain gases like CO2 have the same effect as glass. CO2 allows sunlight to pass through, but blocks infrared energy. Venus is an example of a planet suffering from the “green house” effect. It would be hotter than earth even if its orbit was further from the sun because its atomosphere traps the suns energy. Forests remove CO2 from the air. By deforesting the Earth to make room for civilization, and by burning fossil fuels we create CO2. Before the colonists came the US, the US was almost completely forrested. We destroyed over 80% of forests on American soil.
