You can’t eat gold

What works for the people with $40 million in disposable income doesn’t work for the rest of us. Not only can you not eat gold but in a real crises you can’t even trade it for something you CAN eat. Those people are diversifying to preserve wealth. They’re not worried about eating.

You did realize that quantitative easing was a super duper word for “Oh shit, we’re in a liquidity trap. What the fuck do we do now”, right? Inflation, or that hit from the 70’s Stagflation is right around the corner. Gold is a shitty investment, but it’s a great inflation hedge.

Meanwhile, I’m investing in my own precious metals: Brass and Copper Jacketed Lead.

And Cheetos.

    I’d think that Jack Daniels would have decent trade value in a TEOTWAWKI situation. And if the world doesn’t end, it keeps nicely.

    Twinkies and Wild Turkey, plus all the copper jacketed lead I can get my hands on.

    Junk silver is a bit easier to unload when you need to.

    Set up a table at a gunshow and sell individual coins off.

    Jim Beam, Jerkey, and Hoppes #9.
