When it comes to being prepared, they cover everything you could think of and a whole lot more.
Although their focus leans toward a darker side of humanity (i.e. Zombie Apocalypse, chaos, massive starvation causing people to become cannibals, etc.) their simplicity in planning is extremely efficient and impressive.
They even have well thought out plans on how to deal with a global meltdown in the financial markets.
They know if the financial markets implode and money becomes worthless then desperation becomes the norm. They also know that the vast majority of Americans wont survive some of their anticipated doomsday scenarios because theyre well not prepared.
Admittedly, some of my prepper friends are a bit on the kooky side but thats partially why I love them. And because they take their prepping seriously, they tend not to worry about the doom porn headlines about an oncoming Civil War between conservatives and liberals.
My one buddy accurately nailed it when he said: ummm, we have all the guns they cant even figure out what bathroom to use.
But lets go back to how they prepare for turbulent markets.
One of their best ideas is to own AND HOLD gold and silver coins, preferably in small denominations. They understand that if you dont HOLD it, you dont own it. (Read about it HERE)
But heres another logical reason preppers like coins: Turbulent falling markets eventually settle down and reverse. When that happens, youll want to cash in some of your gold (at a much higher price) and bottom fish for the best deals.
Its not just buy low, sell high strategy.
Its more like: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
