What exactly is a valuable commodity? Is it currency, the money you have in your wallet, the savings you have in the bank, the insurance policies that only pay when you die?
What about the commodities of gold and silver? If you study commodities you will find that everything works on an exchange rate. People exchange money/currencies for food and services. If you have something valuable to trade, then that is a commodity. Most commodities have a limit on what they’re worth. You can trade one dollar for a cup of coffee and maybe even get a free refill. But, once you trade a commodity for food and eat the food it’s gone, the exchange is over and the commodity traded is finite.
So, stop and think about what commodities are the most valuable for the future. If currencies crash and become worthless then everybody thinks that gold and silver will become super valuable; but how many people do you know who have gold and silver? Can you eat gold and silver? If you are hungry gold and silver have no value – no exchange value to you. If you could trade gold and silver for something you needed, what would it be? Commodities are only as valuable as people’s needs and the timing of owning one commodity or another.
We would say that going forward in any type of world condition that the most valuable commodities are skills that you possess. You might be able to fix things, or grow things, or heal things, or teach others. Those commodities are what’s valuable. Once you start looking at survival then your idea of a valuable commodity will change greatly.

COMMENTARY: No matter what commodity you own in whatever quantity – in desperate times it is only an entry fee, an exchange or barter for what you need, or maybe even a humanitarian handout to those in need. It’s hard to imagine a world like this. Maybe it doesn’t need to come to this. Maybe we can “get it” without experiencing this lesson. At the same time, be ready for anything including a better you who has something valuable, maybe even beautiful to offer this world.
