>>17>you'd be better off with bullets. Seriously, I'll sell you some food in exchange for bullets - food, water, medicine & ammo are going
This. I have seen gold shills way back in internet gold shilling days who wrote crap and I explained to them that its retarded in a SHTF scenario gold is worthless.
For all gold fanboys this should be a wake up call:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgUxF7gvYeEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heX8vKRgGUY
The thing you should take from this is not<LEL plebs don't understand the value of gold!
its<No one is going to accept gold its worth less then a candy bar to people.
Gold is good if you want to do some money shenanigans like a father in 1960 wanting to have the same or slightly more value for it in 2000 and expecting a stable society. Outside of that buy real things that have value.
Gold is practically worthless and in a SHTF scenario it will be even more worthless. Because there will be practically nothing you can buy with it.
A better idea is to buy a box of candy bars who will be worth far more then what they are today in a SHTF scenario because its food and its candy so some pleasantry in the postapocalyptic nightmare. Be ready to defend your candy bar stash from looters. Looters will not even be interested in gold. 5 candy bars for a shovel sounds like a good trade. What will you do with the gold? No one wants some useless yellow metal.>>18>but it is inherent
No it does not.
You know what has basic value? Food. Because people want to eat. They will always want to eat especially in a SHTF scenario.
Gold was used only by a handful of civilizations other used silver or even iron. And it developed in extremely prosperous and long stable societies like Rome. Other people used bear skins or other items for trade.
So the gold will have a over 800 year ROI if it ever has and positive ROI at all after a long emergency SHTF scenario.
You can buy gold if you expect a 2008 style recession or depression to make 20% profit on it after 5 years or something. For anything SHTF gold is useless.
Also know how to check that you actually did buy gold and not tungsten filled gold.
