Many say buy silver and or gold. If the dollar becomes worthless your silver and gold will help retain some monetary value.
The other school says items to barter will be invaluable.
I think it depends on what you see coming. If its simply a short turn dollar collapse silver and gold would be great.
If its a long term calamity silver and gold could be near worthless. If there was no way to cash out or trade precious metals what would it be worth?
If I had a couple cans of beef stew and say your family was hungry well maybe you had a good skinning knife but your neighbor was hungry too and had a handful of silver dimes.Who do you reckon would get my beef stew?
Now before any kind of calamity would be a good time to think on the future.
Food and ways to get more will always be worth something!
If you have plenty of money sure hedge your bets get all three. If not food,water, other supplies to help insure your survival would be first choice. If you have no money? Knowledge is often free for the asking or studying!
