Gold, Silver and Diversifying Income
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio in player below!

Gold, Silver and Diversifying IncomeThere was a time when your faithful host was just a scared newbie lost in a sea of articles about the impending economic collapse and the death of the US dollar. I knew my history so the idea of wheelbarrows of money to get bread weren’t new to me. Still, I had a family and thought I had to act fast to stem the tide of the coming collapse. Now, that was 5 years ago, we are not in the boat many of us prepared for. That said, we are in a Continue reading Gold, Silver and Diversifying Income

Silver, the unseen benefits!

Silver, the unseen benefits!
James Walton “I Am Liberty

Silver, the unseen benefitsIf you frequent any prepper website its likely you are inundated with information about buying gold and silver. Most adds can be as ostentatious as to tell you that “quickly before the dollar is devalued to 0” you must buy gold and silver. Then there is a quiver inside you. Fear begins to chip away at your common sense and Continue reading Silver, the unseen benefits!

Bartering history and present day!

Bartering history and present day!
James Walton “I Am Liberty

Bartering history and present dayThe history of bartering dates all the way back to 6000 BC. Introduced by Mesopotamia tribes, bartering was adopted by Phoenicians. Phoenicians bartered goods to those located in various other cities across oceans. Babylonian’s also developed an improved bartering system. Goods were exchanged for food, tea, weapons, and spices. At times, human skulls were used as well. Salt was another popular item exchanged. Salt was so valuable that Roman soldiers’ salaries were paid with it. In the Middle Ages, Europeans traveled around the globe to barter crafts and furs in exchange for silks and perfumes. Colonial Americans exchanged musket balls, deer skins, and wheat. When money was invented, bartering did not end, it became more organized. Continue reading Bartering history and present day!

Being prepared when the stuff hits the fan!

hitting-the-fanWhen the stuff hits the fan, either for the not so long term or when the end is not in sight, all the goods we have stored will eventually run out. For many, this time will come much sooner than for others who have made at least some preparations. A lot of things can simply be substituted for old world solutions. Take for example toilet paper, which when you run out, can be switched out for washable cloth wipes. However, there are a lot of things that one may run out of that simply can’t be exchanged for another solution. This is where the idea of bartering really comes into play. Sure, you could store up thousands of rolls of toilet paper, but again, it will eventually run out and leave you without your previously enjoyed bargaining power.
Enter the renewable bartering system. There are many things that others will either need for life, want to satisfy addictions, or be unable to provide for themselves. Many of these items can be grown, produced or, in the case of skills, be a never dwindling source of buying power for the well rounded prepper.
This week on The Prepared Canadian I’ll discuss what you can produce in a renewable way for bartering with others. Some can be grown, others can be produced with a little foresight in equipment, and others like skills can be learned.
