(Again!)…It Has Begun: Wise Up and Stock up as Food shortages and Price Hikes Are Coming Before the Years End
February 14th, 2014
Editor’s Note: One of the key trends we’ve seen over the last ten years is an unabated rise in prices for essential goods that include food, energy and other commodities. This year, as was the case in the 1930′s, we’ve seen quite a significant change in the weather. We can go back and forth about the causes, but for all intents and purposes this would be an exercise in futility. What’s important to us personally are the consequences. In the following article Lizzie Bennet of Underground Medic highlights what those consequences will be. The key takeaway is that everything, especially your food, is about to skyrocket in price. If you have the means to do so, consider stockpiling additional goods, especially those essential dry goods like rice, beans, wheat, and corn. One of the best investments you can make is to buy at today’s lower prices and consume at tomorrow’s higher prices. It’s a strategy that would have yielded you 50% – 100% gains over the last four years, and it’s one that will continue to be a sound investment. Moreover, unlike paper investments, when you own commodities stored in your home there is no counter-party risk. Get prepared for long-term emergencies and save money while you’re at it!
Stop for a moment and think about what’s happening weatherwise around the world.
California is in the middle of a drought so severe that domestic supplies may be cut in a matter of weeks. California produces a massive amount of the food consumed in the United States.
Extreme cold in the United States has killed livestock in the hundreds of thousands.
Florida farmers are looking at massive losses from cold weather not just ruining citrus crops, but squash, cucumbers and herbs.
Wheat growth in Texas is stunted by continuing cold weather.
The fishing industry in Indonesia has taken a hit because of bad weather.
