I am not saying I believe this is likely to happen. But let's assume that oil prices keep going up sky high, food shortages continue, the value of
the dollar plummets, Iran attacks Israel and all of a sudden we're in a regional if not global war, and then the U.S. goes into another great
depression. Everyone's out of work, riots occur occasionally, bankruptcies and foreclosures like crazy, etc.
In at time like that, what would be a good thing to have? In other words, what could I buy and hold onto NOW that would help protect me and my family
THEN. By protect, I mean what would help us through that time. What could we buy now and be able to sell then in order keep food on the table and keep
us from going to the poor house?
Gold? Silver? Guns?
I know a lot of people would say food or oil. But I can only stockpile so much food and I don't have a place to store lots of oil. So I am looking
for things I could save up that don't take up too much room.
I was thinking Kruggerands or 1 oz. gold bars. Also thinking guns would be handy for both barter as well as personal safety.
