There is one thing more precious than any metal or oil. Clean drinking water. Find an artesian spring and bottle it.
You can't do anything with gold. Can't eat it. Certainly can't eat any metal or oil. As the earth's population swells in the next 25 years, clean drinking water will become the most precious commodity on the planet. Try living without it!
Oh! by the way! I have mined gold for almost 45 years. Gotten wealthy off it! But every gold mining operation I've ever seen, pollutes water. Mine included!!
Buying gold or any other precious metal usually involves some very hefty commissions. One meets these same commissions on the way 'out,' when the metal is being sold. Unless there's been an appreciable increase in par value between buying and selling one could lose one's shirt.
Anyone know how to minimize these commissions? Please let us know.
I bought a little gold in the early 80's when it was still reasonable. Now I've invested in survival food and equipment. Freeze dried with a 25 year shelf life, mre's, water storage, generators, ect. If the economy collapses the supermarket shelves will be empty in a few weeks. Y'all can eat your precious metal while my family and neighbors eat a tasty meal. If nothing happens, we'll still be eating a tasty meal.
I would suggest anybody living in a big city when the economy collapses to invest in a "soon to be precious metal".... copper jacketed lead. Can't y'all just imagine those gangs running around taking everything you have ? Us ignorant old hillbillies don't worry too much about that scenario. We have this weird code we live by most city folks would find very strange. We take care of each other.
as usual to find out the 3 shinier metals,I have to follow a F'ing net tree ,after clicking on the story I want to read. What is the matter with these people,if I click a story on the front page,THAT MEANS I WANT TO READ THAT STORY. f it
this is worse than a phone tree at the bank
