Fine, if you want to give Achmed down at the 7-Eleven a one ounce Kruggerand for a loaf of bread........cause thats exactly what would be demanded.
That is exactly what will happen.
If we get to the "dooms day" scenario where gold is supposed to be what you want to have, food, fuel, etc are going to become rare relatively quickly. I can see it taking at most a year or so for current stockpiles to be plundered, consumed, or destroyed. Gold will buy surprisingly less and less in the end.
At best, it will delay the inevitable. Bullets and guns are a better investment. One bullet will grow in value, not go down.

And if I have enough bullets and guns, and I have $100,000 of waelth left to secure, yowhat would you advise I buy (Supposing I have a few years of food stored, and all the fuel I need)?
