Surviving Economic Armageddon
The United States of America is now bankrupt. "Going Galt" shares the essential tools and skills you will need for you family to survive as America heads towards economic collapse.
No matter which political party is in power over the next decade, the over-hang of $100 Trillion in unfunded liabilities from the local to Federal level, plus a hollow banking system, means there is no way to tax ourselves enough, or even cut spending enough, to have any chance to grow our way out of our problems.
That means the productive elements of society will at some point go on strike, whether by choice or because they are forced to pack up their bags and hide. From Ayn Rand's famous novel Atlas Shrugged, comes the phrase "Who Is John Galt". Galt is the character who epitomizes the productive entrepreneur so fed up with the restrictions of the bureaucrats and corporatists that he decides to start a revolt of society's creators. Given our current financial dilemma, Rand's theme suggests productive citizens may only be able to survive by "Going Galt" and dropping out.
It would only take one unthinkable event to disrupt our way of life. If there is a terrorist attack, a global pandemic, or most likely a sharp currency devaluation--you may be forced to fend for yourself in ways you've never imagined. Where would you get water? How would you feed your family? What would you use for fuel? Would you have the financial means to survive in a broken economy?
"Going Galt" is about how to survive the upcoming economic Armageddon everyone knows is coming. But how does one survive even for a short period if one drops out of society? You can't totally avoid shopping for food at inflated prices, or make your own gasoline, or live in a bomb shelter; that isn't practical. But what "Going Galt" does show you can do is:
Take aggressive financial measures to protect your assets.
Stockpile food for when social and infrastructure problems arise.
Grow food to act as a backup resource.
Use power sources off the grid to supplement your fuel needs.
Change your life in a hundred ways to improve your chances of making it through the next decade of problems.
You have lots to learn to protect your family."Going Galt", gives you a starting point on the long road to making yourself independent in unstable times. This book is not is anti-government, or anti-tax - it is too late for that. Instead "Going Galt" is about the practical ways your family can survive No Matter What Happens.
