if civilization collapses over something as mediocre as the ecoomy, then our species really is pathetic.
eitherway, if a REAL survival situation happens:
need food? kill or grow it, need a cord of firewood, chop it down, there's food and wood all around you.
i'd suggest learning up on electricals, enough to rig up something for power, wind turnbines, waterwheels, solar, etc. MAKE: Magazine actually has
some usefull instructions how to build some interesting things, that wih a little modification, could be pretty useful.
far as the current situation goes, worst i see happening is we get back to a DIY culture, alot of people have already been going towards that route
long before anyone started panicking over economies.
beleive it or not, survival and a comfortable life are not totally reliant on money, there are actually quite a few people living comfortable
lifestyles without really being affected by money, or the economy. and they aren't exactly living like cavemen either.
the economy was the biggest scam anyone fell for,if it goes then we'll all be alot better for it
