Report We Are Facing Another Global Financial Crisis Of Epic Proportions in House prices and the economy Posted December 8, 2015 Interesting thread, well the first three and last 2 pages! Way too long for me to read while I have a tea break! I did notice that some of the predictions for armageddon have now expired, do they just roll over on a monthly basis from now on? To be fair, there is nothing wrong with preparing for the worst case scenario. I bought about a months worth of food from a survivalist company a good while back. It is freeze dried and lasts 25+ years. While I'm not sure if we'll see the collapse of western civilisation, you only have to look at the rains over the last week to see how society can fall to bits quite quickly. It soon picks itself up, but in the meantime it's nice to have some food, bottled water and the means to cook with that doesn't rely on gas or electric squirreled away!
