Take away the addictions and what's left? Eating and exercise? No thanks, I don't want to live in that world.

I think coffee will re-ignite international trade after TSHTF.

All it will take is a single sailboat, crossing the carribian to Martinique or Columbia or some other growing area. A sailboat could probably transport 50 or 100 bushels. And with no fuel expense, you'd get home eventually. If Americans don't go and fetch it, farmers from those countries might just get their own boats and bring it right to us.

Maritime trade is actually the cheapest method. It costs less than a third of the price of rail transport, and only a tiny fraction of roadway transport. So the easy to prepare addictions will me met first.

Alcohol can be brewed without any problem. But sugar, coca, or coffee must be imported. You can bet your sweet bippy they will be, and by means of Free Trade.

NO! No more of this free trade crap. It has to be EQUAL trade. No country should ever again be in debt to another country.

I quit cold turkey without any trouble after a pack a day for years. Also, alcohol is insanely easy to make, and when SHTF, there won't be anyone stopping you from growing other things that i can't specifically mention.

Um, ok. I just meant that no government would be setting quotas and levying tariffs to warp the free market. Free trade involves the elimination of special importation expenses paid to governments; it doesn't necessarily involve debt, as far as I know.

I didn't say "fair trade," because that has become code for socialist price-fixing to benefit unions.

What does "equal trade" mean? That neither party in a trade thinks he is making a profit? People don't trade at all unless they hope to make a profit.

Nations should trade for what they cannot make, grow, or find on their own land. We have oranges, they have cinnamon, let's trade.
