How can it be that as the global economy melts down, this community is strangely quiet??

Anyhow, does anyone know what kinds of batering currencies are out there? I heard that the Liberty Dollar has been stopped by the FBI.

If you're buying ammo, you don't really need to buy rice. When the time comes, just use the ammo to take away the rice from those who have been storing it away.

Then why should you be allowed to live now, since we know you're just a psychopath?

I've seen a stamping machine that you can put your own labels on the ring of the ammunition you're using.

I've been thinking of making a post. This week sometime.

And about the bartering:

Gold. Buy a bag of cheap-as-you-can-get gold rings. And preserve food.

Re: And about the bartering:

thing is, the purity of the gold in the rings can't be determined, so I would think that for serious bartering, that would not be enough. Now, for small trades that might work.

I actually ordered a book on gold bullion to figure this out.

Re: And about the bartering:

Ah. I don't know what you mean by "serious."

I live in a semi-rural area. I'll be trading what I have with my neighbors for milk from their goats and eggs for their chickens.

What are you considering "serious" bartering?

Re: And about the bartering:

well I live in a big big town. So if things get bad enough that I have to barter for food, it will probably be more like me bartering for a farm or a goat myself. Kinda need something of more certain value than a ring.

Re: And about the bartering:

If you're in a town, you might consider checking out flemco's recent series of posts on how to survive when TSHTF.

It's designed with suburban and city livers in mind. Start at the beginning, and read comments. :D
