Everyone who gets into prepping ends up with the problem of figuring out how to pay for it. Just trying to stockpile enough food can be pretty expensive, without even getting into buying the necessary equipment to allow you to survive in the various different situations you could find yourself in. If you’re going to survive, you’re going to have to come up with that money somewhere.
That’s not the biggest financial concern that preppers have though. Many experts agree that the United States is on the way to financial ruin. Our government can’t keep spending money at the rate that it is indefinitely.
Our national debt is so high right now, that our country’s credit rating has been downgraded twice. Not only has that, but federal government spending now equaled about 1/4 of the country’s GNP.
If a financial collapse comes or even a run on the dollar, we’re going to see high inflation rates kick in quickly, perhaps even hyperinflation. When that happens, wages won’t be able to keep up with inflation. So, we’re all going to end up with a serious earnings to spending gap.
