Mac Slavo of http://www.shtfplan.com presents a list of 100 items (below) that are likely to dissappear in a SHTF scenario. While I don’t think it will get bad enough in the US to warrant this type of preparation, other parts of world will probably experience chaotic conditions when the global economy turns south. The author expects hyperinflation and shortages. I, on the other hand, expect the opposite – deflation and surpluses. Even when the Dow Jones was at 6500 back in 2009, we were not experiencing riots. There were no widespread water or electricity shortages that I knew of. Utilities were not being cut off. I do believe the Dow will decline to 5000 within 2-4 years, which would represent a 70 percent decline from here. Certainly a significant decline and one that portends a sinking economy, but even at this level I don’t think it will be quite SHTF. That scenario I believe is at least 15 years away. The list below is interesting nevertheless and there are useful tips. Some items you should have in handy regardless of the situation, such a generator during power outages.
