Lessons from Argentina's economic collapse, how to prepare for a SHTF scenario

On a british website. A good read about real live experiences when SHTF. A text that will tell you what really happens and how best to prepare for such a situation.

For western countries such as the UK, the first major problems of Peak Oil, assuming there are no oil shocks, will not be the shortage of oil but the economic crises that will occur.  Argentina is a recent example of a country that suffered a serious economic crisis, and although Argentina and the UK are not identical, anyone interested in how economic crises can affect individual lives will be very interested in the following vivid description of life for an Argentinian following the economic collapse.

 A long article but a good read. That's about what I expected in the states when this collapse hits full force.

Fascinating (and sobering): From a readability perspective - I like the format on this site better.

Whoah! 

Excellent articles, brainless and drbarbour!  Thanks for sharing them.  They were tough to read, but gave really useful insights on what life could be like if our economy truly collapses.  Those are exactly the kinds of things that can help us decide how best to try prepare for this kind of a possibility in our future.
