6. There will Always be a Need for Workers and Currency
When you think of the SHTF, you probably immediately envision a world where money has failed and everyone is taking care of themselves. Although cash money will lose its value right away, there has always been, and will always be, some form of viable currency. This may take the form of food, fresh water or a safe place to sleep, but it will continue to be a factor. In order to get this type of currency, though, you’ll need to be willing to work for it (or steal, which could be very dangerous).
Billionaires understand how this system works, and you can be guaranteed that they are stockpiling extra supplies with the intention of trading them to people like us in exchange for some grunt work or even security. If you want to level the playing field, you will want to stockpile as much food as possible so that you have something to trade with too.
