Isn't his the point though slayer???
No matter what, these metals will have real value. Gold and silver are only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.....if they want it at all.
I'd take a cup of sugar over an ounce of gold in hard economic times.
Metals have a "Intrinsic" (God I hope I didn't murder that spelling) value, but that value has always been placed by the banks. Inherintly
"nothing" is of value, unless wanted by another, then we have a bartering or something of "intrinsic" value that's traded for such goods.
It's the biggest scheme played on the world (imho)~ Nothing costs what it does, most goods are garbage and are "cheap" for lack of cursing a better
way of stating the obvious.
Sure, you can purchase: gas, dried foods, water tablets, solar panels, whatever your money will get you. In the end, minus the solar panels (which can
be looted or destroyed a long with all mentioned) The rest are perishable goods. You will run out. It doesn't last forever, you only "bought"
yourself "time" from the innevitable. When those goods are gone and you have "nothing" to trade, what then? Do you have skills that are "worth"
In economic burst, the skills you have (minus your bought time) is the only way you'll get anything. And if you only know how to shovel facathta...
Don't expect much from a barter~
What do you think, Slayer?
