If the economy goes, paying your mortgage will be the very LEAST of your problems. I'll take the chicken and the case of tomatoes....
And where, pray tell, do you plan on growing/storing that chicken and case of tomatoes when you no longer have a roof over your head and a place to grow/store them ?
Looking at things from a long-term thought process... not a short-term one.
Since there'll be no functioning electrical grid to operate a refrigerator
how will the banks manage to kick 200 million people out on the streets for failing to pay rent leases, and mortgages?
Look, I'd like to have gold, food AND a roof over my head. But this was a 'gold' vs 'food' question. I choose the food, because having a roof over your head doesn't fill your stomach.

You make a good point, good quality booze will be worth having to barter with. I wouldn't stock up on beer but that's just me.
I also assume medicinal products would increase greatly in value to, especially painkillers and antibiotics.
