I think at best we’re going to suffer and we have some examples of what the worst might look like. Greece for one.
Small, local economies often fare best in hard times. Having something of value to trade is the best prep for disaster in my view. Preferably something that won’t have any value to a thief without the knowledge or skill the owner brings.
We have worked to diversify what we have to offer. Medicinal herbs growing in a garden and experience preserving and using them, a printed reference collection with information about them. An extensive collection of hand tools and experience using them to build and mend things. And so on.
Lot a body can do to be able to make it through short to mid-term diaster. Most disasters are relaively short in the bigger scheme of things. Plenty of discussion about all that here already. Building relations with the people we have is always a good investment in anything the future might bring.
