Financial distress, depression, recession and poverty. All words describing the the potential results of a failing economy. If allowed to continue and go UN-managed the result could lead to devastating consequences. "Economic Collapse". There is no precise definition of an economic collapse, as mentioned in Wikipedia, yet the results are well known to cause a degree of outcomes that is not beneficial for the general public. Social upheaval, starvation, higher mortality rates, unemployment etc. are just a few unfortunate circumstances associated with economic collapse. Many people are uncertain as to what it really means for them and how will it affect their lives if at all.

.

An economic collapse can have various levels of severity, consequences and effects. It often starts as a Financial Crisis. A term used to describe the results of an event or action that has caused consequences associated with a decreasing value of currency or assets. This subject matter used to be one of debate and controversy but is now considered imminently foretasted by economist and billionaires to be a coming soon event. Many more people now days feel it is time for a financial overhaul and are preparing for it to happen. Conspiracy theorists claim that it is already underway and is being orchestrated by those who attempt to encourage the outcome in their favor. There may be more truth to that than we are willing to admit, [Source]. Why would anyone cause such a disastrous situation? Those who believe an economic collapse is imminent are taking measures to have a plan in place to avoid the chaos associated with a financial meltdown. There are others who believe that an economic collapse will not affect them and choose to ignore the potential dangers. Below is an array of information that may validate the concerns and persuade those who wish to survive in taking appropriate action.

What is an economic collapse?

The short description is simple. “No more money”. A collapse of currency and value to assets with cascading effects on society. The effects can have serious impacts on employment opportunities, the cost and availability of food and other luxuries we have grown accustomed to using regularly. There can be long lines of desperate people waiting to purchase the necessities of life as the average cost of everyday items soar to enormous heights. This called “Hyper Inflation”. Some people will lose their jobs and affording inflated prices for food can become difficult Captureto impossible. This leads to riots, crimes of desperation and sickness. This is a time when adjustments are made and adaptation is key. This is also the time when it may be too late to know what to do next …unless you’re prepared.

What causes an Economic Collapse?

Is it an accident or intentional? [Alternative resource]. Regardless of the causes economic conditions are typically cyclic. Economic conditions go up and down be it from acts of intentional or due to some unforeseen calamity. If the cycling becomes too erratic or aggressive it can result in a financial crisis and spin out of control. It’s nice when economic conditions spin upward and out of control but when it drops like a the results can be catastrophic and even deadly, ... especially if we are not prepared. Despite how the collapse of an economy begins the results can lead to a catastrophic series of events. If not addressed with the appropriate action it can prompt people to panic with uncertainty. The uncertainty can cause a run on the banks and a rapid sell off of property and assets at deflated prices. Deflated prices lower the value of most everything adding to the degradation of the economy. As a precaution people will hold onto their money and things of value and refrain from casual spending. This could be the final push sending the economy crashing down. A total collapse may result in the continued collapse of government structure and so on. Where does it stop and level off? That is one of the variables to be considered and something that may be determined by those who know how the financial cycle moves. When the economy is in the upward swing people who understand how to ride the wave prosper financially and often acquire power and control. Additional causes are associated with changes in technologies. Internet E commerce and online business for instance are a huge part of many cultures these days. A collapse of the internet might be one of those catalysts to cause an economic collapse. Because it is computer based and networked it is vulnerable to being hacked where financial records and accounts are subject to manipulation. If intentional it may be a pattern that is necessary to cultures who rely heavily on the profiting and losses of others. In any case it may be this cycling movement that keeps things in balance. “What goes up must come down” It is the severity of the movement that is fragile. The worst case scenario would have us all returning to the barter system and multiple forms of currency. The banks do not want any form of currency which is out of their control. “Bit coin” has become a form of currency that defies involvement of the banks but is subject to the hacking we mentioned earlier. It is cyber money and not encouraged to be used in outside commerce for tangible goods without suspicion. On the down swing of the cycle is when economic conditions “reboot” and return to a manageable happy place for all to participate with one exception. Those who understand how the financial cycle moves are benefited with the knowledge to leverage their assets in such a way that results in a financial gain. Having such an advantage when the cycle reboots can result in shifts of authority and power. This has a profound effect on us all as we become subject to the changes made by these powers. Symptoms that can lead to economic collapse are associated with a financial crisis. If left unchecked, the crisis can cause the economy to go into a recession or depression. If not tended to with counter measures the erratic an uncertain movements of the economy can drop at a rate beyond what might be manageable and result in a “Crash”. This is a disastrous condition to be prepared for. Final note: A total economic collapse is characterized by economic depression, civil unrest and highly increased poverty levels. Hyperinflation, stagflation and financial-market crashes can all be causes. Government intervention is usually necessary to bring an economy back from collapse, but can often be slow or unable to remedy the problem, especially if the governmental structure does not survive the crash.

Where can it happen?

An economic collapse can happen to most all cultures which rely on the exchange of currency to live and progress from day to day. Simple cultures and societies that don’t rely on the mismatch of currency and its worth may not have all the luxuries associated what money can buy but they do have the knowledge needed for practical living. These skills are generally lost to cultures who get used to using money for their daily requirements like food and water. Once we have become accustomed to using a form of currency we offset the balance of common survival knowledge and become more reliant and prisoner to the use of currency.

When and how likely for it to happen?

The likelihood of an economic collapse often depends of the factors mentioned earlier and the intent of those who are in control. Because economic conditions are cyclic it is reasonable to assume that the potential exists if not managed. Of course things like war and natural disasters can have a detrimental effect on an economy. Sometimes war can have a positive effect on a society’s economy until such a time when or if destruction occurs. Natural disasters can also have a positive effect if the outcome is to rebuild and put people to work. It is the chaos and uncertainty between the beginning and the point of rebuilding that defines a culture and its ability to survive. Those who are dependent on a cultural currency are susceptible to economic collapse.

Recessions in history:

.

CaptureThe Great Depression in the United States is a prime example of an economic collapse. The 1929 stock market crash brought on a collapse that lasted for many years and saw high levels of poverty, sickness and starvation. Well-known economist John Maynard Keynes claimed this was the result of the total lack of government involvement in the economy or the financial markets. The latest recession in the U.S. came about as a result of unchecked land speculation. That land was residential real estate. Real estate values skyrocketed from an early point in the decade, and then peaked in 2006. Bank lending for real estate purchases climbed into the hundreds and billions of dollars. The market became so lucrative and liquid that institutions created instruments to allow investors to bet on the direction of the housing market. Both the real estate values and the value of the instruments collapsed and the effects may not end for many years. Recessions have occurred more times than most people are aware of. Rules of economy have changed as did the involvement of governments. Once upon a time conspiracy theory activists speculated that having government involvement could present an opportunity for corruption and manipulation through bailouts. Hmmmm. Who would have thought?
Here are other dates in history when the economy was not stabile and uncertain causing panic and despair.
Early 1980’s, 1973-75, 1930’s, 1920-21, 1907, 1893, 1873, 1857, 1837, 1815-1821 and 1807.

The duration of a recession or depression can last for years. According to history the length of time can be unpredictable yet measures can be implemented to change or band-aid the situation. Inflationary measures such as bail outs and certain exemptions from tax or other financial obligations have been known to create the illusion that the economy is getting better. The concept of a bailout is generally beneficial for banking industries as well as other large corporations with connections to the banks. This sort of action provides a financial cushion for those large corporations who have not been forth coming as to how the funds were used. The public was stuck with the bill without understanding where all the money went. To this day many people continue to ask as to how the money was used without receiving a reasonable answer. A few programs were launched to assist home owners in distress with their mortgages but failed to meet the needs of the majority. Many home owners in the US who attempted to participate in these programs were not able to save their homes due to the limitations of the programs. This had symptoms of pacification, ... like throwing the dog a bone. Many questions have yet to be answered regarding the bailouts. How long will the effects last? Is this simply a Band-Aid over the wounds of the economy? What is the best course of action to take to increase the odds of survival during such an event.
