Think no banks, no ATM's, no exchange rate, no stocks, or bonds, your stuck with nothing more than TP would you still try to use it as money?
Would you try to restart the system ???
If so why?
Would you take Gold /Silver when it is worth less nothing more than a trinket.
I for one wold not, for it would be worthless, how would you price out your ammo, food, meds, water, and fuel,( not so much for vehicles, but for gen's camp stoves, and lanterns.)and your skills.
Would you welcome a trade/ barter system?
you can answer any or all of the questions, or just your thoughts.
