    Stop listening to the news! If dollar crashes- you create a FOREX account and buy more and more of it. One day it crashes- the other day it goes back up.

    flick on the cable TV and watch the chaos unfold - safe in the knowledge that my Aussie dollars rely on more whats happening in china than in the states thesedays

    Prepare ahead of time...stay out of debt! Then get ready to barter.
    The Forex may be nice, but once the dollar "crashes" (it can't actually crash depending on your definition, it may someday be completely devalued though) it can not come back. This has been in the works since the US went off the gold standard in 1971. If then President Nixon did not go off the gold standard, the US would have gone bankrupt.

    Dollar crashes then everyone's money goes to 0, except the smart people who invested in gold and silver or has food to trade.

    Read stories about the great depression, it'll be 10x worse.

    Would load a semi-automatic, open a beer and sit on my front porch and enjoy the show.

    If everything you own is stored in USD, then there is nothing you can do to save your money.
    Doing nothing, will be the best course of action.

    The dollar won't crash that easily. If it crashes then go back to bed.... you can't do anything about it if you are in US... that is. Most will head to the city center and loot whatever they see before it becomes tooooo expensive.

    people who are in the know will know when to GTFO of USA because when this shit happens it will be pretty nasty in the USA and very unsafe those in the know would probably be out of the USA and all of their money in different currencies etc... So Prepare accordingly we are couple years away from this.

    I guess I would not feel so bad anymore about not having much in the way of a savings account.

    Wouldn't paying of any dept be a great thing? A lot of contracts are fixed amounts of money. So if you earn like 1 million a day, why not quickly pay of that 25.000 car or 250.000 house?
