Agreed. I'd rather have the things people will want to give me gold for later. Why would I buy gold at today's prices when I can buy wheat for a fraction of the cost and sell it by the loaf of bread for gold pieces later? Just doesn't make sense to me. How much gold would you give me if you were starving? I'd pay a lot.
Exactly. Gold will have value for AFTER the turmoil passes... but what if it doesn't? Lets say that there is a massive solar flare that wipes out our satellites, communications and power grid. It would take YEARS to restore that, and that's after things calmed down.
In that time, what value is gold?
Gold has had importance in history, but in today's world, does the average person still value it, or care about it? Does it have the same commercial value that it once had in antiquity? I don't believe so.
I am not saying that it has no value, but I think that in 2021 if the S really hit the fan, that gold wouldn't be in the top 10 of valuable commodities...
I feel like the average scared, starving and endangered person is gonna care way more about those things, than they will about jewelry and trinkets...
