I have wondered the same thing myself. I wonder how much gold and silver are worth in areas where mass famine is happening. I think our economy is being crashed intentionally to prove the free market does not work. They think they can control chaos to impose communism/progressive end goals/people’s republic utopia. I think they can crash things, but I don’t think they have the capability to achieve anything. We will be like Zimbabwe if people don’t wise up by the 2014 election.
You need the gold to store your wealth until the collapse has stabilized. You need the brass and lead to survive the collapse.
“We will be like Zimbabwe if people dont wise up by the 2014 election.”
I think more and more people are beginning to think we won’t be able to vote our way out of the mess we’re in. Take your money out of the 401(k), pay the penalty and buy hard goods... things that will be valuable even if (when) the economy goes into the tank. My wife (a non-drinker) is stockpiling wine. I just bought some tobacco seeds. There are “other” things we don’t talk about too. We have seven people living in this old house and all but the two grandkids (2 and 6 years old) shoot well. I sincerely hope we’re not tested but if we are, I also hope we pass the test.
Gold, only if somebody will take it. Silver has a crisis use as an antibiotic.
