Strategic Relocation—Third Edition. The long awaited third edition with colored state maps is now in print and available for purchase. The Third Edition added a complete section on foreign relocation possibilities and increased over 200 pages to make room for an individual analysis of every state and province in North America. The new color maps show military and other threats, population density in cities, satellite images of terrain features, private vs public land availability, and much much more.
In today's bookstores, it's easy to find information about the "best places" to live. Such literature undoubtedly will concentrate on the positive aspects of life, such as numbers and ratings of golf courses, doctor/patient ratios, warm sunny climates, availability of cultural activities, status of educational institutions, and the growth potential of the local economy.
But while these highly-rated metropolitan areas may offer ample opportunities to enhance your lifestyle, what happens when a major crisis strikes? What if:
a labor crisis halts the inflow of food and business goods? Will these communities provide the basic necessities of life?
an economic crisis that threatens your pensions, investments and other so-called "guaranteed" income?
a major earthquake or other natural disaster suddenly upset the natural social order for months at a time? Could you get out of harm's way if massive social unrest erupts in the wake of a crisis?
the area's freeways are clogged during an emergency? Do you have contingency plans to exit the area?
if the "unthinkable" happens: nuclear war? Or have you thought about the potential of a major terrorist attack on a U.S. city with chemical or biological weapons?
It's easy to dismiss these threats during times of peace and prosperity, but they are real. Not only that, but the probably of such events coming to pass increases every year. Strategic Relocation: North American Guide to Safe Places is an in-depth analysis of North America's safest places to live. This book will help you look ahead for potential threats that most other people fail to see or choose to ignore. It contains a complete discussion of the strategies and relocation contingencies that will help you avoid or mitigate each of the major modern threats, from national disasters to economic collapse to nuclear war.
