I do not envision any scenario as nobody knows how anything is going to unfold. You and I are equally in the dark. I know this for a fact, that my 83 year old friend who was a plumbing contractor did ok during the 1920-30's since he worked for pieces of gold chains. Money was crap! BUT he was ok. Who was not ok were the millions of people who had salaries etc and got shitty, worthless paper for their work/time. This is speculation at best; the bank run that we had once before would not be the central problem. Mainly the problem would be the medium of exchange (money from the Fed carrying no buying power. In which case they likely would have tickets or vouchers for food, and other essentials, hey they have that now in forms of food stamps. In this time looting etc also might not be the problem as national guard, police presence. The main issues is emergency money = SILVER! Also, black markets can form in a moment when there is need and there is source! That is a fact, we have a black market for illicit items now. When something else would become scarce, the market(black) will take care itself.
