Depression 2.0: Creative Strategies for Tough Economic Times

Depression 2.0: Creative Strategies for Tough Economic Times is part of the same series of Process books that includes The Urban Homestead, Preparedness Now! An Emergency Survival Guide for Civilians and Their Families, and Getting Out: Your Guide to Leaving America.

By most economic indicators, America is inching toward financial collapse. The familiar signposts are all too visible: profligate spending, a debased currency, bank failures, record foreclosures, and the looming threat of a crippling energy crisis. We have grown accustomed to living in a stable, prosperous society, and many of us may not be prepared for a shock of this magnitude.

Depression 2.0 is a practical, empowering, hands-on guide to persevering and even thriving in the event of an economic crisis. Placing particular emphasis on self-sufficiency and personal resilience, this timely, informative book offers a hopeful way forward in a time of great uncertainty. Bankruptcy, barter, and survival investing are just a few of the important topics explored.

Chapters include:

* When Economies Fail: A Look Ahead

* Sounds of Distant Thunder: Preparing for Collapse

* Clearing the Slate: The Bankruptcy Option

* Trapped Inside: Urban Survival

* Return to Simplicity: Rural Retreat Options

* Powering Down: Surviving Gridcrash

* Between the Cracks: When You Have No Shelter

* Beyond Currency: Barter and the Black Market

* Survival Finances: Investments for Uncertain Future

Depression 2.0 is the fourth title in Process' celebrated Self-Reliance Series, created to help urbanites make smart choices to live sustainably and self-sufficiently in the twenty-first century.
