We can say without a shadow of a doubt that 99.9% of the establishment media never saw it coming. Ahead of the 2008 credit collapse they not only failed to warn the American public about what was happening beneath the surface, but they publicly mocked and laughed at those who urged investors to exit stock markets and prepare for an economic fallout unlike any we’ve witnessed in modern history.
People like Doug Casey, Peter Schiff, Harry Dent, Chris Martenson, and Jim Rickards were saying what most didn’t want to hear, what most wouldn’t believe could happen, and they were vilified by expert economists, top market analysts and even our elected representatives for telling the truth.
Well it did happen. And they were proven right. And now, they’re sounding the alarm once again.
In the following video from Future Money Trends these same legendary contrarians share words of wisdom about where we are, where we’re going, and how to prepare yourself to prosper during the hard times ahead.

The only thing that you take with you… Absolutely the only thing that you own are the skills in your hands and the knowledge in your mind. That’s all you own. The rest of it they can take away from you, and they very well might.
What you’ve got to do is arm yourself with specific marketable skills and knowledge. And I don’t mean the kind of bullshit you get by going to college. That’s worthless…
Must Watch: Words of Wisdom to Prepare You To Prosper For Hard Times
No matter where you are with your efforts you can take steps to prepare for what’s coming – for what’s happening right here and now.
Whether you are investing in gold, silver, commodity stocks, long-term food stores, supplies, arable land or skills-building, your focus must be on assets that will either preserve your wealth or have some sort of productive capacity should our economic system completely buckle.
Everything else can be very quickly rendered worthless in any number of ways.
