Greenspan Says Economic Crisis is the Worst in History

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan

“The world economy has undergone by far the greatest financial crisis globally ever,” states former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.

He went on to say that the U.S. economy is in worse shape than it was during the Great Depression, and is potentially more harmful than in the 1930s because short-term credit has not been withdrawn.

Greenspan made these comments in a speech to the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington D.C.

Editor: I was actually surprised he admitted this because the current and previous U.S. administrations have never called it a Depression. They always say it’s a “double dip recession” or a “jobless recovery”. Yeah, right. Depending on who you believe, unemployment is as high as 22%. So, it’s certainly jobless, but not a recovery. No wonder families are having a hard time having enough to eat. Senior citizens are having to choose between food and medicine. They always choose medicine.

Top Myths About Emergency Survival Food

Common Long Term Food Storage Myths

There are many Long Term Food Storage Myths

Here are some of the more common myths that exist regarding long term food storage:

  1. The Government will take care of me – FEMA and other relief agencies generally take around three days to start providing help in disaster-stricken areas. However, they can not be everywhere at once, and they can not feed everyone. If you doubt this, just look at the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the Haiti earthquake.
  2. It Will Never Happen to Me – The statistics say otherwise. Start asking everyone you know if they’ve been in any kind of disaster. You’ll be surprised how many will say Yes. Yet, disasters are not the only reason to have food storage. There are people right now who are eating from their food storage because they have no work and hardly any money. If it wasn’t for their food storage, their family wouldn’t have enough to eat.
  3. Only Survivalists Have Food Storage – Actually, more and more people just like you are getting into food storage. The decline of the U.S. Dollar and the ailing U.S. financial system have made people rethink their stance on food storage. People who used to laugh at storing food are now embracing it.
  4. Emergency Survival Food tastes awful – If you think this, you haven’t tried any of the high quality freeze dried food from Mountain House Foods. They are gourmet meals that only require hot water for preparation.
  5. Food Storage is Too Expensive – Determine the amount of money you spend every year going to the supermarket. When you do this and compare it to the cost of food storage, you will find that it is not out of line.
  6. Food Storage is a Pain to Rotate – If you store canned goods, basic staples, or dehydrated foods, you will have to rotate. However, freeze dried food, and especially Mountain House Freeze Dried Food, lasts for a minmum of 25 years and does not require rotation.
  7. Preparing Food from Food Storage is a Lot of Work – That depends on what type of food you store. If you store only basic staples like wheat, sugar, beans, flour, oats, etc. (not a good idea to store just staples), you’ll have to prepare your own meals. The bottom line is that you should store the kinds of foods you are used to eating.
  8. I Can Just Use the Food I Already Have in my House – Take a serious look at what you have in your house. If our food in mostly in a freezer, then you must realize that one of the first things to go in a disaster is electricity.
  9. Storing Gold is Better than Storing Food – While gold and silver would be very helpful in a financial collapse, you still can’t eat them. What would you do if you couldn’t buy food for any amount of gold or silver?
