In the event that the entire economy collapses and food and become scarce, billionaires are looking for high-end places to hold out and await the new world order. Many billionaires are now preparing for the apocalypse, and their survival plans don’t include anyone outside the global elites.
Peter Thiel, the billionaire behind PayPal, is among those tech giants who see New Zealand as a good place to go in the event of an apocalypse. New Zealand is seen as a particularly safe place for billionaires in the event of an apocalypse. In fact, Thiel has bought a $13.5 million 193-hectare section on the shores of Lake Wanaka, although the only building there at the moment is a barn (that can be seen).
According to the Mirror, plans show he is fitting a panic room in another property he owns in the country and he has been granted New Zealand citizenship in a streamlined process not available to normal (non-global elitists) members of the public. A rough and ready description of the attraction of New Zealand came last year in The New Yorker magazine, with LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman suggesting the country had become shorthand for apocalypse insurance in Silicon Valley.
In 2011, Thiel declared he’d found “no other country that aligns more with my view of the future than New Zealand”. The country is more relaxed in terms of government than many places, has ample drinking water, and some of the world’s cleanest air.
“Saying you’re ‘buying a house in New Zealand’ is kind of a ‘wink, wink, say no more’,” Hoffman said. “Once you’ve done the Masonic handshake, they’ll be, like: ‘Oh, you know, I have a broker who sells old ICBM [intercontinental ballistic missile] silos, and they’re nuclear-hardened, and they kind of look like they would be interesting to live in.‘”
“Billionaires are going ‘bunkers’ over the apocalypse if you will,” says Joe Joseph with The Daily Sheeple.
“Here’s the thing, folks: to make a long story short, the actions of preppers are vilified,” says Joseph. (Who hasn’t been called a ‘crazy tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist’ for having extra cans of food and some dried jerky meats around?) “You look at people who store non-perishable foods, who store fuel, medical supplies…they get laughed at. But these billionaires are doing the exact same thing and in haste! So you have to wonder, what is the sense of urgency with these people of means that they’re willing to go that far, to buy 98% of an island and their own airline to get there…for there to be that much of a sense of urgency.”
“We, society, is institutionalized. When you go to school, it’s cool to be stupid, it’s cool to run with the crowd, if you run outside that crowd, if you’re a ‘black sheep’, you’re a nerd…it’s a toned-down version of prison culture…but it bleeds over to the outside, so when you do your due diligence and your research, and you say ‘holy cow! All of these billionaires are buying up these bunkers and these properties and they’re putting away food and medical supplies and alternative energy…if they’re focused on that, maybe I should do it!’ And what happens? Well, because you’re an outlier because you don’t go with the crowd, you’re vilified and looked at as a ‘black sheep.’
Billionaires are showing an increased level of urgency; perhaps we should too. “They [the billionaires and elite globalists] see something coming that we don’t. It’s all over the news: whether it be an economic collapse, whether it be a pole shift, whether it be Yellowstone; you name it….they see something most don’t, although the truth is right in front of us,” Joseph says.

Looks like they want New Zealand to become a target.
Pretty dangerous move though since one simple-minded Dem congressman explained how islands float and too great a population on either end of the island could cause it to flip over. These are our leaders who run but can’t hide. They are scared to death and with good reason.
It is those who possess survival skills, not money, who will win.
Real smart, move to New Zealand and get eaten by a Maori cannibal.
Being a New Zealander living in Australia, all I can say here is you are a top class idiot. Cannibalism finished over 150 years ago.
I don’t get the New Zealand ‘ideal location’ thing. If I recall Christchurch has been hit pretty hard a couple of times in the last 10 years or so by some kick-ass quakes. The entire chain of islands is right on the ‘ring of fire’ zone too, right? Kind of goes to show that the wealth doesn’t automatically confer intelligence. Were I a rich man, I’d surely choose some more geologically-stable place.
how about australia? THAT LOOKS GOOD BECAUSE IT IS SO BIG AND YOU CAN HIDE WITH THE ABORIGINIES…..YOU CAN EAT KANGAROO BUT IT MAY MAKE YOU JUMPY. THE CHINESE ARE BUYING UP AUSSIE LAND LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW. MAYBE THEY SEE SOMETHING WE DON’T . SCOOTERDOG MPLS MINN
Chinese have whole cities built that are empty. They don’t need Australian Land as a survival situation. They are buying Australian land as an investment, and or for military strategic reasons. They hold so much of our dollar, they need hard assets to balance out their portfolio you might say.
John, you know that when you type in ALL CAPS it’s like you are screaming at us?
YOU NEED A LONG BEAN SHOOTER WITH LONG NEEDLES ON THE DARTS FOR HUNTING. YOU CAN STOP ANYTHING IF YOU HIT IT IN THE THROAT.
I don’t mind the big caps at all. It’s much easier to read than this tiny print!
Good, give us more specifics so we know where to eat them.
These billionaires want to be alive and well after the crap hits the fan to rule over the survivors. What they fail to realize is after the fall the ruling class will be hunted down not kow-towed to.
LOL. Yeah. Fake News. False Flags. Now False Countries. I love it.
Let the fucking cowards go crawl in their holes.
Menzo, agreed. Their bunkers need to be discovered and destroyed, with them inside of course. I think back to a movie named “The Dirty Dozen”…..
I’m for locking them in so they go slowly, terrified. Eat each other.
Braveheart, the rich don’t have the training to handle their own defense, so they’ll have to hire armed guards. After the collapse happens, it’s not going to take to long for those guards to figure out that they can just kill those rich guys, and take all their supply’s. I mean think about it, who’s going to stop them, nobody, so in the end the rich will not live through the collapse!
Don’t these people understand that the government will take care of them in a crisis!
A friend of mine from New Zealand who was living in America but owned a house or two in New Zealand told me New Zealand was not as modern socially, men dominated, and alcohol not drugs was the worst vice.
I told another friend who was in Real Estate I thought New Zealand might be a nice place to live. He said you have to have at least $100,000.00 in assets and be able to prove you won’t be a financial burden before they’ll admit you. So, while Europe and America are being swamped with deadbeats and criminals from the third world, New Zealand has been protected from this invasion.
The elites and anyone with half a brain knows that no Country can survive without conflict if you put too many different races in one spot. They want us to kill each other while they wait it out.
$500,000 in liquid assets and a business you are willing to implement.
Have to get down to the nitty gritty of eliminating the bulk of the existing population, just like the millions of Russians murdered a hundred years ago. A very good article lays out the ongoing plan at veteranstoday.com titled: Can the coming Sovietization of American Dissent be stopped? History repeats itself. The war on dissent presently in America has been effectively successful by all implications, the net neutrality decision the next step to all out tyranny.
Let them go just means more for us.
I came into tis world and I will go out with nothing.
Professor Guy McPherson dispells the myth that habitation will exist in the southern hemisphere much longer after collapse;
Guy is my dad! We don’t talk much. He disowned me when I voted for Trump ?
Too many articles on New Zealand insures that country has been added as a nuclear target to eliminate western elite.
Moving to New Zealand makes no sense- a volcanic & seismically active area? The EXACT opposite of what is required for long term survival.
That is like tempting Murphys Law.
My money is on the four horsemen. Wink. Wink.
“and their own airline to get there” That airline, Island air went bankrupt last November.
I hope they all go to New Zealand. Don’t come here!
We are the poorest county in the state of Hawaii, but we have a lot of very rich people, living very quietly, when they are here. The only Billionaire I know of, is Paul Allen. The airport parking at the Kona airport fills up with private jets during the holidays.
Everybody here preps as we face so many potential natural disasters here, more, so than New Zealand.
All these places the rich want to buy and hide. Problem is, you can’t hide from God and he can make New Zealand shake and bunkers collapse if he wills. The only place I would want to be, if its indeed the time of the end as the Bible tells us is in Israel. I know for sure its still there because Jesus returns there! America? and the rest of the world? if its still there, its most likely a nuclear wasteland.
billionaires are going to have a little trouble finding old intercontinental ballistic missile silos for sale in Ozland ….
To All Billionaires: If you’re not George Soros, you can hide out in my basement and share my preps for $2,500,000.
“streamlined process” is that another name for payoff?
I’m curious, so when the dust settles in new zealand after shtf and the hordes of non preppers get hungry, did the billionaires just think they would leave them and their supplies alone? Or are the billionaires going to become the new masters and the existing rabble will just roll over? From what I understand them Maoris were some tough customers.
The cowards almost waited too long.
