Here I explore the return on investment that you should expect on the money you spend now on prepping for an uncertain future. I also talk about the necessity for division of labor and specialization after shit hits the fan.
A little detour into some basics of economics as I understand them. I address the inevitable emergence of “money” within any system that involves trade and the illusion of “wealth creation” as it is traditionally defined.
“We’re dealing now in very early days a crisis which has got a way to go. If we went back on the gold standard and we adhered to the actual structure of the gold standard as it exited prior to 1913, we’d be fine. Remember that the period 1870 to 1913 was one of the most aggressive periods economically that we’ve had in the United States, and that was a golden period of the gold standard.”
This is the one that I really get in trouble for. A brief history of money, precious metals and one revolutionary idea.
You have $100,000 in your account, right? Does it mean that there is a little cubbyhole somewhere, with your name on it, in which you will find a stack of 1,000 Ben Franklins? Nope. Not even close. No cubbyhole. No stack of money. No nothing.
How much more corrupt can our society become; how much more deviant can upper level criminals become? Our entire system has to reset. The people that are in charge have to pay for the crimes; the people that have protected them and allowed them to commit crimes against humanity are guilty as well. They will need to pay as well.
