Not Good News for Tax Collections!

Let's see austerity tax policy solve this little problem. Is there something wrong with me? I'm actually rooting for Greece to default.

I think this is fantastic,

I think this is fantastic, and is very similar to what happened in the former Soviet Union after it collapsed (per Dmitry Orlov's book "Reinventing Collapse"). It makes me feel good because there are 4 things on that list that I would consider myself advanced to expert in/at.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.. in a collapse situation your most valuable assets will be the brain in your head and those two things at the ends of your arms.

I <heart> Bartering!

Hmmm I fall under a few categories:

Blacksmithing

Agriculture, Farming Expertise, Seed Saving

Manufacturing

Firearms Proficiency

Martial Arts Training

Bartering is one of the coolest things ever! I would love it if my small town would start a new currency like some of the New England towns have done except back it with something like silver, gold , platinum etc. I live in small town and this idea would work awesomely but people around here don't like change....even if it meant a stronger community.

I live in a van down by the river!
