Why Silver will be used Post-Collapse
December 4, 2012
Okay Everyone, I have been working my butt off to get a 3 part series podcast on the economy, how it works, why some things work and some don’t, basic economic terms and what they mean/importance, etc. Precious metals were to be a section of that, why they are still “worth” something, why they always have been and always will be. However after my post on Gold and Silver Coins and individual named Andy made a few comments, and we ended up in a back and forth disagreement over a few days!
Now Andy wasn’t necessarily wrong, he is right in that you can’t eat gold, and you can’t defend yourself with Silver, and that a 2000 lbs of long-term storable food is more valuable in a survival situation than $2000 in silver. There are of course 100′s of unique scenarios and what if’s that can happen.
I want to go over a few misconceptions and “what if’s” as well as why I believe that in some ways the metals thing is overblown in the Prepper world, but also why it is also a very important aspect to have in the overall framework of your preps.
