- No utilities - unpaid (or paid in worthless money) workers don't work
- No security - same as above except it is the police, fire dept., etc.
- No food - store shelves are empty
- No fuel
The combination of no security and no food leads to a breakdown of the social structure. The time to prepare is now. As reported by the trader on the BBC, we've twelve months to prepare - he may have been optimistic (plan on it).
First thing you should concentrate on is food. When the worldwide ponzi does collapse, food distribution will be interrupted for up to six months. You will need to build up a food supply while remembering there will be no power or fuel. Cooking may prove problematic. For this reason you may wish to consider dehydrated food. As adding one cup of boiling water "cooks" the food, the fuel/power needs are minimal. If you have land, plant a garden.

Next you will want to preserve as much wealth as you can by transferring it to real money. As we've previously documented in "Your pay was cut in the last 60 days – worldwide ponzi collapse accelerates", there are no safe currencies. The only real money is gold and silver. The longer you wait, the more it will cost you.

All of your preparation will mean nothing if you can't protect your family. As police may be unavailable, you'll need your own weapon and ammunition. This suggestion is not made lightly! Whatever your opinion of where you live, it is going to get ugly - fast.
