The all mighty dollar takes a shit. You go to the bank and the ATM is down. You go to use a teller and the doors are locked. You call the bank and there is a recording about how everything is frozen until further notice. You hop online and every news authority you can Google is streaming with headline about the collapse of the financial system.
You're ass is broke. And you're going to be for a while.
What do you do?
Shortly thereafter your utilities shit down because no one is monitering the plants without pay. How do you compensate?
Can't drive your car because we can't buy oil, how do you get around?
Grocery stores? Yea those are empty. What do you do for food?
Basic toiletries: deoderant, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, tampons/pads, toilet paper, laundry detergent etc. What's the plan?
Lots of you have little ones, what would you do about clothes and shoes?
Would you start a barter system with anyone?
Do you know a valuable trade?
Would you move?
What would you do about looters?
Would you homeschool? Or trade a service or good for a tutor?
What about medical? What would be considered reason enough to seek out a doctor vs what do you think you could handle yourself? How would you pay the doctor?
Any other scenarios I have left out?
We are a country that relies on so many people to get things done for us, whether we realise it or not. What would you do if the only person to rely on was you, you couldn't use money, and how would you do it?
