Episode-6- What the Current U.S. National Debt Really Means

We are constantly inundated with information about the “U.S. National Debt” but very few people actually understand

1. How much total debt the U.S. really has
2. Who we owe the money to
3. What we owe the money against
4. How a failure of one sector can impact the others
5. How much the U.S. owes collectively to foreign sources

Due to this few people honestly understand the true scope of the problem and how at risk it places the entire United States economy.

Mentioned in this podcast is the America’s Total Debt Report which can be found at

Episode-5- Starting From Zero with Emergency Survival

Episode-4- The Missed Lessons from Hurricane Katrina

We heard an awful lot of blame handed to an awful lot of people over the disaster after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. That happened on August 29th, 2005, almost three years ago. Over the years we have heard a lot about the “lessons learned” as in how the government can do a better job in the future and a bit on at least people being more responsive to evacuation orders.

That said I think many of the real lessons of Katrina and other disasters have yet to be learned by the average person, here are the things I think we should all take away from and take to heart about the reality that Katrina exposed in America.

Unlike many survival minded individuals I don’t believe that we are going to see an overnight dooms day scenario playing out. Instead over the coming years I think we will see a slow and steady downward spiral of what we currently consider modern society.

This episode outlines why I think it is coming, what it will mean for the average person and what we should be doing to prepare for it.
