  1. When the Titanic hit the iceberg it’s fate was sealed.  The ship’s officers knew it, but the passengers believed that everything was going to be alright.  Then there became a point when the listing and in rushing water became so noticable that passengers lost confidence in the Captain and panic ensued.  That panic point is rapidly approaching for fiat money.  People will scramble to get out of paper and into real assets.  That loss in confidence in the government issued currency is true hyperinflation. We have already hit the iceberg. We are going down. Board your gold and silver lifeboat before the passengers in mass panic.

      Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan is an 1898 novella written by Morgan Robertson. The story features the ocean liner Titan, which sinks in the North Atlantic after striking an iceberg. The Titan and its sinking have been noted to be very similar to the real-life passenger ship RMS Titanic, which sank fourteen years later. Following the wreck the novel was reissued with some changes, particularly in the ship’s gross tonnage, to make it closer to the Titanic
       
      Although the novel was written before the Olympic-class Titanic was even designed, there are some remarkable similarities between both the fictional and real-life versions. Like the Titanic, the fictional ship sank in April in the North Atlantic, and there were not enough lifeboats for the passengers. There are also similarities between the size (800 ft (244 m) long for Titan versus 882 ft 9 in (269 m) long for the Titanic[2]), speed (25 knots for Titan, 22.5 knots for Titanic[3]) and life-saving equipment.xxx
       
      IMO, the sinking of the Titanic was already determined.  I guess this is in that “conspiracy theory” area but there is some good info of who died on the Titanic.  The Titanic is a great metaphor to describe the global financial markets.  It’s a predetermined and staged collapse just like the Titanic. 

  2. UglyDog ….you may be right, but it could be a long time away.  I really don’t see a collapse in 2013.  With the Fed at work, the Euro having plenty of time yet to flee to the USD, and a little positive economic news at home, what would be the catalyst for a collapse in 2013?  I keep seeing a lot of ridiculous articles like this that continue to fly in the face of reality.  I would hope that people buy gold and silver to have long term.  Folks that are new to PMs, be smart. 

    • The govt’s now appear to be setting up a hard landing for the people.  Just look at the recent trend in the U.S. where they let the 2% payroll tax expire then two months later the Sequestration Cuts.  While a lot of pundits are for the 2% payroll tax remember that a large number of companies continue to be tax exempt which are grossing Billion$ of Dollar$.  These Billionare$ Tax Exemptions more than make up for this 2% increase. 
      This I believe is the fallacy as Trim Tabs had explained early 2013 if you raise taxes by 2% then expect GDP to fall 2% or more. 
      As Gerald Celente and John Williams pointed out most consumers are maxed out on credit and this had previously been fueling growth.  Maybe it explains why they are keeping the $1 Trillion Student Loan Bubble floating when it should had crashed mid-2012.   
      Next we have legendary Jim Sinclair coming out with his first interview in about a year and stating something significant has changed with gold trading in the markets. 
      Make your own judgements but something has changed in the past two months.
      Some very powerful forces have made the decision to Release The Kraken!! 

    • Im with UglyDog on this one,we are already living on thin ice as ice as is,thus it wouldnt take more than one single global event to bring it to its knees.Like a drug user who after going cold turkey,smells  a wift of his favorite marijuana treat,and heads back to that drug binge,politicians are too wired that way.You asked what would be the catalyst for a collapse in 2013?Um lets see,recently a meteorite devasted some part of Russia,that could happen on a much larger scale,worldwide.how about a possible China/Japan War escalating,which brings in the US to the Conflict or a Huge scale Libor type of fraude,that the Banks wont be able to cover up this time with taxpayer bailouts.You see it doesnt have to be financial but rather a natural or physiological event as well,that could be the catalyst for the collapse.As a observer of history,you dont have to look past government’s responses to hurricanes Katrina or Sandy in the US,the earthquakes in Japan and Haiti,major EU demonstrations and China’s Ghost Cities,that the writing is already on the wall.Survival Skills will be your one chance to weather the storm brewing.Good Luck to All,we are ALL going to need it.
       

    • @Stack3000:  You don’t see what could occur in 2013 to cause a meltdown?  I’ll give you two words:  North Korea!!!!!!  If China, who is scarfing up gold by the ton doesn’t keep the NK’ers in line (remember, China only is successful with do so because they FEED the NK’ers) its Katie bar the door.  The NK’ers, dissatisfied with the AMOUNT of food their being given may just say “Screw it, lets get it on.  There WE sit, vulnerable to the max.  That is a DAILY scab that only needs to be picked.

  3. I’m with you on the 2013 projection Stack Smack 3000 There are plenty of problems on the horizon but nothing that tells me we will see a collapse. Not this year. We may muddle through for a few more years.

    The velocity of money is the key here. All the QE in town has not set off hyperinflation in the US. Despite the amount of money in banks, corporations and individuals accounts, there does not seem to be enough flowing to jumpstart hyperinflation.  The $1 trillion in government transfer payments going to the welfare class plus another $750 billion to SS and Vets is spread very thin.  The average citizen does not have enough money to kick off hyperinflation.  Even though auto and student debt was the largest increase in consumer debt in 2012, that money was spent;  done and gone.  The heaviest amount of currency is still sitting in the banks, central banks and corporations, used in many mal investments as these in  entities try to get a modicum of investment yield.  They seem to be satisfied with this process. 
    The events that could turn on serious inflation, well in excess of the 2% gov stats or 9% from Shadow Stats, is the real fear that will come about when basic necessities commodity prices start in earnest.  In other countries like Venezuela, Iran and Argentina, hyperinflation of 25-50% or more has taken root.  Their currency problems can be contained unless we have a blow up in Iran that spreads to the greater Middle East.  I don’t see the US, UK and Eurozone affected by the South American problems, not that they aren’t serious to the people in those countries. 
    Food, fuel and water shortages get right down to the street level and can turn on the fear factor that tells the citizenry they can and will be hurt by these shortages. Once that takes hold, inflation even in the US could easily hit a level that the government can’t cover up.   10-20% inflation and its effects on the pocketbook would be profound. At that point even the meager income given to the people in the transfer  and mandated payment programs would be enough to force consumers to reach deep into their wallets to front run inflation as they lose confidence in the currency. They would stripmine their bank accounts to head off price increases. That’s when hyperinflation takes hold.  Loss of confidence in buying power lights the fuse

    • We are in the collapse, it is happening already all around us in slow motion. Flight to the dollar pushing it up, DOW spiking with no real improvement in the economy are just signs of the collapse.
       
      The collapse isn’t going to be a sudden overnight event, things are just going to keep getting worse and worse until the government pulls the plug on the Federal Reserve or until the people pull the plug on the government.

    • What MaryB said. Remember how long sub-prime took to unwind? They were talking about it for months and months on the news before it hit.
       
      Also, if it’s not now but “later”, why have 2700 MRAPs (mine resistant vehicles) been purchased for major cities, why has 1.6 billion in hollowpoints been purchased, why the drone/American citizen conflict, why the youtube videos of tens of thousands of plastic multi-person coffins, why the all-out gun ban for US citizens?
       
      If later is “really” later, it’s not going to be that much later…
       
      Each day before SHTF is a blessing. Even if silver is highly undervalued IMO.

    • Absolutely, Just here in the US  another drought is forecast for the summer 2013, food prices that spiked since last summer will only go higher. More cities across the country are starting resemble Detroit, and the certain bankruptcy’s that will follow. The MSM loves to paint a rosy picture, but the beauty of the internet is the ability to communicate with those around the country  and world and see how the non-economy is effecting them. But, the thing that will get us will probably the thing we don’t see coming. The thing is, as long as the masses have their TV, Food, and a Roof they don’t seem to notice or care about the decline. It is sad, but all one can do is prepare and hope for the best, keep stacking.

  5. I’m frantically writing down all of your poignant one liners to wow my friends and family with……’scab that needs to be picked,’ ‘cue mexican hat dance music’, ‘Obama’s face on the 500 dollar bill.’  Maybe I don’t get out much, but the people who comment on this site are quite witty and I have learned a lot following it the last couple months.

  6. SS 3000/silverrrr.  NK?  I was talking to my wife this AM about NK and Mini Me III. That concerns me more than the Iranian problems.  With a week and a half of US and SK war games, just south of the DMV,  MMIII is getting even more paranoid.  He has to prove himself to the generals.  He’s a kid and not rpoven like  his father so his paranoia and saber rattling, with threats of a general invasion of SK or lobbing a nuke tipped missile some place where it could cause some really damage would increase his prestige with the NK elites.   Maybe just a Scud over LA with a 5 KT air burst, would get some attention.  One air burst over Seoul would change the game like nothing we’ve  ever seen

    • “Maybe just a Scud over LA with a 5 KT air burst, would get some attention.”
       
      Oh, that would get some attention, alright.  Can we say “obliteration”?  One Seawolf class sub could launch half of its missile load at NC and erase the place.  Of course, that action would require some balls the size of a hummingbird’s, so maybe that’s just not an option either.  :-/
       
      Perhaps some diplomacy is in order here?  We need to let the Chinese know that we understand the relationship between NK and China and that if the Chinese want a relationship with the US, they need to keep NK on a short leash.
       

  7. Personally, I do not see 2013 as a possible economic collapse date.  Other factors are coming into play in 2014 but their effects may not cause the collapse right away.  My best guess at a time for economic collapse is in mid-2014 through mid-2015.  This is a guess and there is no data whatever to support it.  But this is the feel that I get from the US markets and what is happening in the UK, EU, and Japan.
     
    Not that this changes my plans a bit.  I continue to stack the goodies that will have value in a SHTF scenario, including some PMs, but also food, water, water collection and purification capacity, meds, tools, seeds, ammo, etc.   

  8. The collapse will happen tomorrow, 12-Mar-2013. I read about it in a Dan Brown novel.
     
    Silver will surge to $147,929.47 on 23-Sep-2013 at about 4:00 in the afternoon.
     
    Lindsey Lohan will be jailed on a drunk driving charge.
     
    One of the Kardashians will get a divorce, one will get re-married, the other will give birth, and no-one will know for sure who the father is. Mrs Kardashian will win celebrity mother of the year, and die of a drug overdose the next day.
     
    F**k I’m good.

  9. 2013? The financial experts were saying that 2012 was the collapse of the USA with the 21 December 2012 as a coincidence! Back in 2011, they’ve also said that 2014 to 2015 would also be the economic collapse.
