Stumbling Towards Survival

Bookmark and Share

Holistic Survival is founded on the premise of “Protecting the People, Places, and Profits you care about during uncertain times.” What do we mean by uncertain times? Good question. Lest you get the wrong impression, we’re not worried about a complete unraveling of society and all out disintegration of civilization. That’s probably not going to happen.

But we do expect challenges in the near to medium term future that could seriously undermine your quality of life if you stumble blithely forward without any sort of preparation. We’re not fringe kooks but do consider ourselves to be realists. The reality is that the smart citizen is going to make certain preparations. Stocks of food, water, and medicine are a good idea, as is taking extra care to insure your money is invested outside the stock market.

The United States is set for an economic stumble. You might ask, but aren’t we stumbling already? Yes but it’s probably not over. There are a few reasons to believe this. Both have to do with the weakening currency. Reason number one is that many big investors from the United States are pulling their money out of dollar-denominated assets and moving them into the international arena. A recent report by Morgan Stanley showed $400 billion in assets have been moved. That’s a chunk. It means the big boys are still nervous about the dollar.

Reason number two is the growing number of countries considering a move away from the dollar to preserve their assets. If this conga line gets very long, it will have an effect on the value of the dollar and the U.S. economy as a whole.

So…Jason Hartman doesn’t believe we’re all going to hell in a hand basket but we don’t believe we’re out of the woods yet either. It’s time to prepare as best you can for whatever may come.
