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.
