"Are you prepared for price shocks? Are you prepared for food shortages? "
So what does all of this mean for America? Could we actually face food shortages in the United States at some point?
Well, at first a global food shortage would mean rapidly rising prices for food in the supermarkets. The shelves would still be full, but people would not be able to afford to buy as much.
If a global food shortage was sharp enough and went on long enough, the price shocks would eventually turn into empty shelves and physical food shortages inside the United States.
Keep in mind, there are already tens of millions of Americans that cannot feed themselves. In the United States today, there are over 43 million Americans on food stamps. That means that approximately 1 out of every 7 Americans is being fed by the government.
So what is going to happen if real food shortages hit?
Already there are some very disturbing reports about food shortages in the U.S. floating around out there...
The early warning signs are right there in front of us. This has the potential to start getting very real.
Are you ready? Are you prepared for price shocks? Are you prepared for food shortages? Are you prepared for a global economic meltdown?
The number of "preppers" in the United States has not exploded just because millions of Americans suddenly wanted to pick up a new hobby. The truth is that over the last several years people have been waking up and have started realizing that the global economic system is heading for some really, really hard times.
Many believe that we are heading into what could potentially be some of the most chaotic times in all of human history. Life in the years ahead is likely to be very different from what we are experiencing now. The world is rapidly changing. Now is the time to start getting prepared.
