Gold is a place to store wealth, it is the dollar that fluctuates.
Of course you can't eat the gold, but i would rather have gold then dollars for the time being.
Gold is gold is gold, paper money is fiat currency.
If the country were to collapse, gold would be your best bet to keep.
Eating is a different story, i hope people are smart and don't destroy themselves if the country collapses, which is what usually happens.
Hydroponics is a good start for growing food or farming on land. Time to start farming
edited to add: The whole monetary system is a scam. Give me the control of a nations money and I care not who makes the laws.
