I need a thesis statement for a synthesis essay

What is your essay about?
A synthesis essay depends on sources. What kind of survivor do you mean? What do your sources tell you about surviving.
We can only guess. Suppose you mean surviving financially. Most sources agree that if you do not have something to fall back on that is not currency related, you will be in deep trouble when this world experiences a severe depression (which it eventually will).

Experts in the field of economic survival all agree that not having food, money not based in bank notes and legally not stored in banks, is asking to live in poverty and be homeless until the economic crisis passes.

Notice how this starts.
Experts all agree

State what they agree on
