I have been seriously thinking along these lines for some time now. If you are serious about preparing for the worst possible outcomes (a major depression or hyperinflation, civil unrest, etc.) look at a book by Howard Ruff (amazon - can get it used) titled, "How to Prosper in the Coming Bad Years" (1981) or, he has an updated version (April 08), "How to Prosper in the Coming Hard Times". I learned a lot about how the downward economic spiral happens and what you can do to safeguard your family and economic future. How to plan for survival, ideas for food storage, where it might be safer to move to (out of big cities where civil unrest is more likely to affect you as the situation worsens), what preparations are needed, etc. *We have so much information available to us, it behooves us to learn as much as we can while we still have time to make our plans.
*Begin NOW to live simply, save what you can, learn valuable how-to skills (gardening/construction/first aid/trading), stock up on items needed for survival and bartering, buy from thrift stores, safely stash money/silver/gold, etc. PREPARE FOR THE WORST, PRAY FOR THE BEST.
