Episode-222- Food Storage, Famland and New Currencies

Today is sort of a free wheeling show.  I discuss three main topics including money moving to buy farmland, the alliance of BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) nations for a new currency and basic food storage for new survivalists

  • Getting Started with Emergency Food Storage – Starting with the philosophy of “store what you eat and eat what you store”.  Then we expand on building a basis with low cost long term storables from the supermarket.  From there into adding in true long term storage foods such as Mountain House, etc.
  • Next up is this BRIC Nations – Join me as I discuss the actions of Brazil, Russia, India and China as they plan for a new global currency basis.  I also analyze why this alliance makes sense and why we should be figuring out how to deal with the results because they are coming.
  • The final topic today is farmland investing – George Soros and Jim Rodgers are pumping money into buying farmland.  The meaning?  Food shortages are all but assured in the future.  However, I have a compelling case for why this investment COULD backfire if they don’t evaluate land management techniques if the play is designed for long term holding.

Episode-19- Six More Reasons the Economy Faces Trouble

In this edition of The Survival Podcast we cover six things effecting the future of our economy that are not really being talked about. We also officially announced our Listener Appreciation Contest.

Today we discuss six major economic trials coming for the US and the world they include..

  • FAS 157 that take away some of the gray book keeping by US Banks and Insurance companies but still let Freddie Mac hide billions in losses.
  • The combined effect growing illegal immigrants and universal health care will place on an economy already 100 Trillion in the hole. Along with how this is just another attempt to institute a new form of class warfare.
  • The rise of China as a global capitalist force and what it may mean for us long term.
  • The fact that Gas in the US has hit a tipping point that the oil companies have recognized and pushed off additional costs to the airlines in the form of jack up pricing on Jet Aircraft Fuel and how that can only last so long.
  • The coming pull out of many investors and what that means to a market driven by investment.
  • The final nail of our coffin may end up being the return of “common sense economics” by the average American.
