Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

What a horrible day for global economies. :( The German market DAX falls 5% - French markets CAC down by a little less and the UK FTSE following close behind down by only 3.5%. In the U.S. the DOW opens nearly 3% down and getting worse, NASDAQ and S&P500 not much better. Bonds are volatile, gold and...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

With more areas of the UK being put into tier3 lock downs over the next few days, the chances are we are witnessing the [final] nail in the coffin of the UK economy.. When the furlough scheme ends (EO October?) and other gov support packages wind down, it will be a very short period before the true ...

I'm dehydrating a big bag of peppers to store. It's a bit disheartening when you see what you get at the end from a 2.5kg bag lol

After a years growing work and harvesting 20 plants, it looks even worse with chilies.

IMO the collapse has already happened, WE just haven't been told about it yet.

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

I'm definitely coming around to the importance of skill values in any 'barter' system scenario, much more so than holding onto paper cash or precious metals and even seeds, food stocks and other tangible assets which have a limited life term. If we were to experience a really serious economic crash,...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

I cant see anyway of avoiding joining the digital money system even in the most modest way. Imagine living off grid, without mortgage or rent, not watching TV, with a private income and / or tangible savings, generating your own power, water supply, drainage and growing your own food, (phew :o ) you...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

Numerous countries and central banks are all about to launch their own versions of digital currencies, ahead of doing away with cash. The trend is clearly there and developing quickly everywhere. Will these new crypto currencies be introduced overnight to 'solve' some urgent banking problem, present...
