Barter Items For SHTF

Today Mike and I talk about What are the best barter items for SHTF. We change up the format and dig deep into the main topic. No news this episode. 

Also, there won’t be an All geared up with Couch Potato Mike this week. Since he was salty all episode long. 

We disagree on the storage of Precious Metals. Mike says that it is a stand-in for money. I.e you are not bartering with gold and silver you are buying. 

I stand behind using precious metals being a barter item. Bartering is between two people without a government needing to be involved. 

We talk about many of the well-known barter items. The things that pop to mind easily. We also cover a few less talked about items. 

Barter items basically come down to two categories. Needs and wants. 

Early on in an SHTF scenario needs will be most important.  People will need food, gas, and medical supplies. 

Once Things calm down, even a little, the wants will rule. During the great depression movie, theatures were filled. They had little to no money and still spent it on entertainment over needs. This is a valuable lesson. 

Yes, you should stock up on needed items for barter. You should also store wants, vices, and addictions to barter with. 

Alcohol, tobacco and titty mags will all have high barter value. The porn industry is not as big as it is without a reason.
