I never thought the recession of 2007 would last this long.
Sadly, the world's response to a recession created by massive debt spending was to take on unprecedented amounts of sovereign debt; So, things might get worse.
Fearing that things might get worse, many have taken to buying preparedness supplies along with a small stash of silver and gold coins.
The first order of business is food. I like having a weeks's worth of freeze dried food on hand. I rotate the food through my camping supplies to keep the food fresh, and donate what I don't use to the food shelter.
The other area of concern is money. I've come to advocate the re-monetizing silver and gold. People traded precious metal coins as money up unto 1857. Gold coins were common up until FDR confiscated the gold.
I prefer silver. Traditionally, Two Bits of Silver (aka, a silver quarter) buys a haircut and shave or simply meal at a diner. Four bits would buy a room in a hostel and a silver dollar would buy a room in a budget hotel. Having a pile of silver dollars on hand means you can buy necessities.
