In a truly catastrophic survival scenario, where life as we know it is utterly altered, currency as we know it will be worthless.
That leaves us with bartering as about the only way to get our hands on goods and services we need or want.
Bartering is trading a good or service for a good or service of at least perceived equal value.
But the perceived, equal value can vary based on the actual need – it is truly a system based on supply and demand.
If toilet paper is very rare, for example, it will capture far more than the monetary value today.
What that means is that the more you store now stuff that could hold value when that stuff is rare, the more you can get for what you have stored.
