I have seen several good articles on the subject of what to do
to prepare for the coming of the Great Collapse. Below are my reviews of
those articles with some summaries of their content.
2011, Craig A. Severance at Energy
Economy Online began a series of three
articles addressing the question of As Economy Fails, How Do We
Part I: The Four Horsemen of the Economic
Apocalypse identifies what is
wrong with our economy: 1) Too Much Debt, 2) Resource Limits, 3)
Destruction and Decay of Infrastructure, and 4) Greed. These will prevent
real economic growth in the near future.
II: Out With The Old Severance identifiies seven outcomes as
economic growth fails: 1) If you can't pay the debt -- Don't!, 2) Buy
American or Bye, Bye America, 3) The empire shrinks back, 4) Stop heating
the outdoors, 5) Cure "sick-care", 6) Repeal laws that mandate opulence
and forbid prosperity, and 7) Drop the shopping. You need to read the
article to get the true flavor of these upcoming conditions.
III: In With The New says we need a map for uncharted territory in the
new year. Our industrial civilization is reaching limits to growth, and we
do not know how to live with that. He present seven new ways of living
that will work: 1) Debt for investment, not for consumption, 2) Location,
location, location [choose with care], 3) Collaborate and conquer, 4) Go
with the flow, 5) Patient, heal thyself, 6) Connect the dots, and 7)
Become producers again. Again you must read the article to fully
understand his bullets.
Severance assumes the
economy can be repaired and offers part of a map on how to do it. Only
time will tell.
