A lot of ultra-rich people are quietly preparing to "bug out" when the time comes.
They are buying survival properties, they are buying farms in far away countries and they are buying deep underground bunkers.
In fact, a prominent insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland says that,
So what do they know? Why are so many of the super wealthy suddenly preparing bug out locations?
When the elite of the world start preparing for doomsday, that is a very troubling sign. And right now the elite appear to be quietly preparing for disaster like never before.
The insider that I mentioned above is named Robert Johnson.
But he didn’t stop there.
In a separate interview, Johnson admitted that,
You can watch video of the entire interview below…
Robert Johnson of the Institute for New Economic Thinking
feels that this Davos is quiet, people aren't talking.
And explains why, and what they should do about it...
And Johnson is not the only one saying these things.
The following quote comes from the Mirror…
Of course not all elitists are planning to jet off to the other side of the globe.
Some are planning to go deep underground when things hit the fan.
For example, there is an underground decommissioned missile silo in Kansas that has been transformed into luxury survival condos by a real estate developer. The following is from a Wall Street Journal article about those condos…
Other wealthy individuals are turning their current homes into high tech security fortresses.
Those that are involved in providing these kinds of services have seen business absolutely soar in recent years…
For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled "Why Are So Many Wealthy People Building Futuristic High Tech Security Bunkers?"
So why are all of these wealthy people so alarmed? Well, the truth is that they can 'see' what is happening.
Even though the economy is still fairly stable for the moment, signs of increasing economic suffering are everywhere.
For example, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that homeless encampments are rapidly spreading throughout the Los Angeles area…
We live at a time when almost everyone is getting poorer except for the elite.
The top 1 percent now have close to 50 percent of the wealth in the entire world, and each year wealth becomes even more concentrated in their hands.
The elite know that eventually a breaking point is going to come. Those that are smart don’t want to be around when that happens.
And we got a few clues about what things might look like what that time comes from the recent "snow scare" in New York. Frightened consumers wiped out supplies of bread, milk and eggs within just a few hours. People started to take advantage of one another, even the journalists seemed like they were on the verge of panic, and virtually the entire city shut down.
All of this over just a few snowflakes.
So what is going to happen when we have a real crisis? If the elite are preparing to bug out, it is hard to blame them. I wouldn’t want to be right in the middle of a volcano when it erupts either.
Life is about to dramatically change, and signs of the coming storm are everywhere.
I hope that you are getting prepared for what is about to hit us while you still can.

Hedge fund managers are preparing getaways
by buying airstrips and farms in remote areas,
former hedge fund partner
tells Davos during session on
At a packed session in Davos, former hedge fund director Robert Johnson revealed that worried hedge fund managers were already planning their escapes.
Johnson, who heads the Institute for New Economic Thinking and was previously managing director at Soros, said societies can tolerate income inequality if the income floor is high enough.
But with an existing system encouraging chief executives to take decisions solely on their profitability, even in the richest countries inequality is increasing.
Global warming and social media are among the trends the 600 super-smart World Economic Forum staffers told its members to watch out for long before they became ubiquitous.
This year, income inequality is fast moving up the Davos agenda - a sure sign of it is poised to burst into the public consciousness.
Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners and a Davos star attraction after giving the closing address in 2014, said he had spent a lot of time learning from the leaders behind recent social unrest in Ferguson.
He believes that will prove "a catalytic event" which has already changed the conversation in the US, bringing a message from those who previously "didn’t matter".
But as former New Zealand prime minister and now UN development head Helen Clark explained, rather than being a game changer, recent examples suggest the Ferguson movement may soon be forgotten.
So what is the solution to having the
new voices being sufficiently recognized to actually change the
status quo into one where those with power realize they do matter?
The panelists were scathing about politicians, Wallis describing them as people who held up wet fingers,
Author, philosopher and former academic Rebecca Newberger-Goldstein saw the glass half full, drawing on history to prove society does eventually change for the better. She said Martin Luther King was correct in his view that the arch of history might be long, but it bends towards justice.
In ancient Greece, she noted, even the greatest moralists like Plato and Aristotle never criticized slavery.
Knowing you matter, she added, is often as simple as having others,
Mexican micro-lending entrepreneur Carlos Danel expanded on the theme.
His business, Gentera, has thrived by working out that,
Which, Danel believes, is why business was created in the first place - to serve.
A message that seemed to get lost somewhere in the worship of profit.
