I found some good ideas in this article:
How to survive 'The Great Stagnation' of 2009 - 2015 - Predictions of the time period of 2009 - 2015 for America an...

How about you? What are your plans for survival?

Interesting Article ! But,

How do you plan? Were only guaranteed today , and even thats not a sure thing anymore ?
Seven years is a long time alot of things could happen ???
If things are getting this bad now Im scared to even think about
how crazy things will get next year ???

Im guessing all we can do is wait,,,
Hope and Pray for the best, and prepare for the worst !

you can bet that if they get a deluge, developed parts of the world like Europe will not be letting just anyone enter. They actually protect their own citizens.
