The Tundra Tabloids has an excellent source within the security industry here in Europe, who says that there’s presently a boom in bunker building amongst the wealthy.

Gun Control and the Crisis in Europe
The two issues are related, as this article in Forbes recognizes. Why? Because Europe is facing disintegration, maybe even collapse. This is strong language for an Establishment magazine.
About a year ago, I spoke at a conference in Europe that attracted a lot of very rich people from all over the continent, as well as a lot of people who manage money for high-net-worth individuals.
What made this conference remarkable was not the presentations, though they were generally quite interesting. The stunning part of the conference was learning – as part of casual conversation during breaks, meals, and other socializing time – how many rich people are planning for the eventual collapse of European society.
Not stagnation. Not gradual decline. Collapse.
As in riots, social disarray, plundering, and chaos. A non-trivial number of these people think the rioting in places such as Greece and England is just the tip of the iceberg, and they have plans – if bad things begin to happen – to escape to jurisdictions ranging from Australia to Costa Rica (several of them remarked that they no longer see the U.S. as a good long-run refuge).
When the rich finally start to worry about social collapse, a society is already. The author offers some excerpts from the Telegraph.
