google selco bosina shtf. Guy has a survival blog from living in Serbia during the war. One of his comments was how even cash money quickly becomes worthless. If he had spent his money on candles, toilet paper, etc. BEFORE the crisis he would have been in great shape to trade. Although he did mention how early on in the crisis he payed $50 for a loaf of bread.
I recall one of his blogs where he talked about how the women would prostitute themselves for a tin of spam.
note: some people don’t think he is real. However, all of the accounts seem VERY believable, and probably have/do occur in such extreme situations.

He documents events during the economic meltdown in Argentina, coming soon to a nation near you!
Wrote a book on how it went down and how people are trying to survive now, but his blog is free with some interesting observations. You don’t have to agree with everything, but it is interesting. Pretty horrific economic collapse tale. Could it happen here? I am beginning to think that the econ collapse scenarios is by far the most likely SHTF event we will face in the next five years.
But I ain’t ruling out mutant zombies.
