If the fiat system was to fall on its A$$. Would holding gold and silver still be of value or just pretty paperweights?
Really a decent food and water supply would probably be worth more.
I suppose a couple of questions really
1. If you did have a fair chunk of gold in assets would you be the richest man on the street and be in a better position from the masses?
2. What happened in the depression with those that held gold?
I understand the whole perceived value of any items, just wondering what happens if it ever came to crunch time.
