Best video to teach sheeple about coming collapse

I have a friend who is open to an alternative perspective of our economic future and I'm looking for teaching material. She has no exposure to precious metals and all of her wealth is under the management of a single broker who she has trusted for many years. She has been completely hands-off with her investments. 

I've seen several documentaries about the pending economic collapse but I'm looking for help finding the most effective one to show to my friend. She is intelligent but she is an economic illiterate.

Suggestions appreciated.

5 Stages of the Awakening

I'm not sure this is the 'best' video (or article) but it'll grab anyone's attention unless they don't want it to. Denial is a strong and safe emotion for those who find comfort in it.

http://dont-tread-on.me/?p=454

After those vids have them start watching these short vids.

Here's the link to the entire list of them...

And then there's this link and vids...

OVERDOSE The Next Financial Crisis

Here's a good one!

With the US raising their debt ceiling, are we in a global bail-out bubble that will eventually burst? This doc offers a fresh insight into the greatest economic crisis of our age: the one still awaiting us.

The financial storm that has rocked the world began brewing in the US when congress pushed the idea of home ownership for all, propping up those who couldn't make the down payments. When it all went wrong the government promised the biggest financial stimulus packages in history and gargantuan bailouts. But what crazed logic is that: propping up debt with more debt? "They're giving alcohol to a drunk: it just sets him up for a bigger hangover."

i've seen a few, but so far

i've seen a few, but so far and even though it's dated, "the end of suburbia" still takes the cake as the best, over-all look at our future, imo.  maybe because it starts with the boomers (post ww2), so we can relate to so much of it and really see the transition in the country from the '50's to now...

Crisis of credit visualized

I like this one:

Not so much pending collapse as a presenting why we are here now.

Moved from Main st. thread

This will take some digging on your part, but the TFMR forum on this topic is a pretty good starting point:

http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/forum/favoritebest-alternative-information-sites/194

News sites, videos, essays -- if anyone has better ones, please add to the list. If I had to pick ONE, one place to perhaps start is the animated feature 'Money as Debt' by Paul Grignon (parts 1-3).

Part 1:


Part 2:

PS: The video above from Al Bartlett is INCREDIBLY effective, I too would highly recommend it.

The following is sensationalist/over the top, and more for entertainment value (as well as being from the National Inflation Association) -- but perhaps enough to get people thinking. The events described (if not necessarily the timeline) are eventualities:

These videos are also good, though their datestamp (and the fact that complete collapse has not become overtly visible) may make the argument a little complicated. But Peter Schiff was pretty prescient in 2007 wasn't he?

Jim Rogers from 2008:

I can definitely recommend

I can definitely recommend Chris Martenson's Crash Course:

http://www.peakprosperity.com/crashcourse

Each chapter is a few minutes long. The full set of videos runs over three hours, so if you need a shorter version here he is condensing everything into a one-hour lecture:

I would also recommend this to any Turdites who haven't seen it. Even if you think you have it all figured out, it's a good and logical take on not only the economy, but how energy and the environment factor in. HTH

Great forum topic!

I will second the Crash Course and the Silver Bullet and Silver Shield.  This thread will be a great resource to send people to check out.

This video sets up the auto play of all the of the SBSS videos.  You probably don't want to start with these videos, first people need to understand the scope of the problem (watch the Crash Course) then learn about what you should do with these facts.

These next two videos will either peel their mind back, or they are totally dense with no hope:

I just sent a mile long email to a friend - highlights ...

I didn't go on the economy - people can't handle that because they don't understand it. Sure it affects them, but i went the more personal route - staying away from numbers, charts, figures, etc. . .

John Perkins - Confessions of an Economic Hitman

This is one of the MAIN ones that got me to say WTF is going on.  This is not the America I was educated on for the past 39 years. Again, a brief 3minute version of the hour long interviews you can find on youtube

Assault on our Education System

And this is dear to my family as we homeschool our children - Just have them commit to watching the first 10 minutes. If, after watching the first 10 minutes, they're not intrigued ... oh, well. This isn't economic - but it's critical.
