My favorite/funny quote from this "collapse-preparedness" presentation:
Reliance on doomed institutions is harmful. Government is already useless. Commerical sector will become useless quickly. Since they will be useless to you, you can start being useless to them ahead of time.
Spoke to my brother today who recounted this joke: "This financial collapse has been worse than a divorce - I've lost half my money but still got my wife."
If you've got time, this Chris Martenson presentation is also worth a view but it is about 3 hours in total. Jump to section 19 for a summary/bringing together of his ideas, the sections on money are also good.
