and one person’s comfort is another person’s discomfort. But like I said earlier, the original post was concerned that we as a nation are at least possibly about to head into economic upheaval the likes of which we’ve not seen in living memory. I think that is a reasonable concern. But as such, we can’t look at what we comfortably do now, to be a gauge for what we’d want or need to do when things are turned upside down. Looking through what other societies have done in those instances, gold/silver has been a recurring successful strategy. No more, no less. And happily, if someone did make such preparations but that severe circumstance never occurred, they’d still be able to sell the gold/silver later, and almost certainly not at a loss. That’s a nice reassurance.
