Preppers Survey Shows ‘Economic Collapse’ is the Most Likely Big Disaster

Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Preppers is a term given to the growing numbers of people who are preparing for disasters and disruptions of all sorts. The prepper movement includes a wide range of people from those who are ready to handle a few days disruption to those who are getting ready for TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it).

The possible collapse scenarios range from pandemics, major terrorism events, tsunamis, nuclear meltdowns, meteorites striking Earth, military coups, and famines.

Of all the big scenarios for collapse, what do preppers consider most likely to occur?

A recent survey with 1,840 prepper respondents showed an overwhelming 76% believe the most likely, big disaster is economic collapse.

Given the recent concerns with a U.S. fiscal cliff, the banking meltdown in Europe, and the unsustainable accumulation of debt by governments around the world, this response is not so surprising, says Marjory Wildcraft, a leader in the survival and preparedness industry. Wildcraft has been described as the Martha Stewart of self-reliance. She is a regular guest on national radio and television shows and was recently featured as an expert in sustainable living on National Geographics hit series, Doomsday Preppers. Wildcraft is an author of several books, but is best known for her video series Grow Your Own Groceries (, which is a crash course on growing food that is used by homesteaders, survivalists, universities, and missionary organizations.

Kevin Barber, owner of the online training school Mainstream Preppers ( agrees with the survey findings. In the surveys, weve conducted weve found very similar results economic collapse is by far, the biggest concern among preppers.

Jack Spirko, host of the popular Survival Podcast ( also agrees that much of his audience see the financial situation as the biggest concern among the many possibilities. Spirko is quoted as saying, Economic collapse is a matter of when, not if.

To meet the growing demand for information and skills related to self-reliance and sustainable living, Wildcraft has created an online information center at with free resources on :

How To Find The Perfect Survival Retreat
Video Interviews With Economic Collapse Survivors
Survival Gardening
Home Defense
Backup Food Supplies
Heirloom Seeds and Seed Saving
Guns for Women and Beginners
Investments & Small Businesses That Succeed In Times Of Crisis
Backyard Food Production
Making Your Own Medicine
Canning and Preserving
Home Butchering
Inexpensive Items To Stockpile
Nutrition and Health
Healthcare When There Is No Doctor

Why the emphasis on growing your own groceries?

Regardless of the collapse scenario, being able to feed your family will be your biggest concern, says Wildcraft. It is well known that there are only about four days worth of food supplies in the grocery stores, and your food travels to you an average of 1,500 miles. Any event that interrupts the just-in-time trucking system will mean people will be looking for food as a first priority. Of all the skills you need to survive, growing food is one of the most challenging.

Wildcrafts crash course video set Grow Your Own Groceries is rapidly becoming the standard video training tool and reference source for people who want to learn how to grow food and take control of their food supply.

Grow Your Own Groceries is endorsed by The Permaculture Activist,, World Hunger Relief Missionaries, The Organic Consumers Association, Alex Jones Infowars, and The Weston-Price Nutrition Foundation.

The principles in the DVD training course are universal and are applicable to everyone living anywhere, regardless of climate. People who live in apartments can also grow their own food.

Wildcrafts new site at offers much more than simply growing food and is quickly becoming the go to source for information for people new to prepping. There is a large selection of videos, articles, and podcasts that provide useful information that is easy to understand.

We focus on practical information delivered with a bit of humor and lots of inspiration, says Wildcraft, who noted that survival and preparedness used to be associated with fear tactics and gloom and doom. I take the perspective that yes, change is coming now how do we make the best of it?

New preppers can get a series of impactful videos delivered to their inbox every week for free when they subscribe to Wildcrafts Getting Started Kit. They can also get a free report titled How Much Land Do You Need To Grow All of the Food You Want. Both reports are available at

Marjory Wildcrafts emails are so well written and so useful, I print them out and keep them in a binder, says Jeff Deere of Dallas, Texas.

Creating the site is part of a mission for Wildcraft, who is passionate about sustainable living and self-reliance. Wildcraft points out that homegrown food on every table is a solution to so many problems we are collectively facing including economic collapse.

Entrepreneurs with Less Than 100 Employees are Optimistic Despite Economic Woes: Marketing Tip Sheet Shows Small Business Managers How to Spark Profits with 12 Strategies

Daytona Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 15, 2013

Dr. Elizabeth Kruger, a published marketing expert, shares on her blog why some small businesses are wildly profitable. Her tip sheet shows entrepreneurs and managers how to use 12 strategies to spark their profits.

U.S. entrepreneurs with less than 100 employees are unreasonably optimistic according to research by Penn Schoen Berland (2013). They seem optimistic since three out of four expect better sales next year and over half expect better growth and financial outcomes. However, three out of four of the respondents did not obtain financing and nine out of ten worry that the economy will hurt their business.

Dr. Kruger reveals how their optimism can predict the future. She knows why some start-ups are wildly profitable while most other businesses go bankrupt. Successful businesses know how to predict and manage results, but other businesses turn a blind eye to priorities.

Successful entrepreneurs prioritize their top customers. They know that highly profitable customers will produce most of their profits. Scientists have confirmed that the top 20% of their customers will be 16 times more profitable than their other customers. Their secret of success is to delight and duplicate these top customers.

Her marketing tip sheet presents 12 rules for sparking profits in a small business. These rules summarize strategies for using the 80-20 law. The first four rules answer questions about the mission, specialty, suppliers, and target market of a business. The next four rules improve basic marketing decisions. The final four rules help entrepreneurs set policies, target prospects, budget resources, and respond to change.

More information about these tips are posted on Dr. Krugers blog,

Her blog includes excerpts from Dr. Krugers upcoming book, Aesops Rules: 12 Strategies to Spark Your Profits. The wisdom in Aesops fables resonates over the ages. Dr. Kruger reveals how their timeless marketing wisdom helps entrepreneurs spark profits in their startup.

In 2011, Business Expert Press published Top Market Strategy: Applying the 80/20 Rule. Graduate marketing classes around the world are adopting Dr. Krugers book to enrich their textbooks. Barry Silverstein, ForeWord Reviews, praises her college supplement as a profit-generating tool.

In summary, Dr. Elizabeth Krugers tip sheet coaches male entrepreneurs to spark profits when starting up a small business. Reluctant entrepreneurs eagerly await Aesops Rules: Profit from Timeless Marketing Wisdom. She posts excerpts of this book and more tips on her blog,

What is the difference in the economic philosophy of a liberal and the economic philosophy of a conservative?

Question by Romeo: What is the difference in the economic philosophy of a liberal and the economic philosophy of a conservative?
Here is my view of the two

A liberal and a conservative were walking down the road

The liberal said: “When I become president I will spend 5 trillion dollars to give a fish to the unemployed and save some poor soul from starving to death.”

The conservative said: “When I become president I will create 5 billion dollars of federal tax revenue when I teach the unemployed how to fish and save the world economy from total collapse.”
How would you describe the difference between the two?

Best answer:

Answer by Peppers
In all seriousness, I think that liberals look at suffering and want to help people NOW with their immediate needs, while conservatives look at suffering and want a long term solution even if that means that some may have to suffer in the process so that everyone will be better off in the end.

I understand where liberals are coming from but I think their approach is unsustainable in the long run. There willl come a time when the road that they are kicking the can down will end
