20 Things You Will Need When the Economy Collapses

I've been expecting an economic collapse since the summer of 1970. It has not come, and I am not disappointed at that.

The older I get, the less adventurous I feel, and the more realistically I look at prospects of roughing it. Nonetheless, you never know when disaster may strike, either natural (a la Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes, etc.) or man-made (as in war, terrorist attacks, collapse of the nation's currency, etc.).

Then there are those disasters that come upon individuals & families: job loss, loss of one's house &/or investments, leading to one's own personal economic collapse. A year's supply of stored food along with some warm clothing and other supplies might go a long way toward seeing you through your crisis.
