Guns, Ammo, Metals, Farmland and Storage Food ... The "smart money" these days is investing in and stockpiling practical investments of substance that look to be absolute essentials for the challenging world ahead. Some of those investments are already peaking in terms of cost. Precious metals, guns, ammo, and farmland are prime examples of goods and property that have skyrocketed in value in recent times. Top-quality, well-recognized storage food is another very popular store of value that, in fact, is the most critical of all of those options since of course you can actually eat it and it will sustain you in ways that the other investments never will. The good news is that we are still on the winning side of the curve there. Supply and demand is always key. Limited supply or an anticipated dearth of availability tends to inversely create even more demand ... driving up the value of something and quickly depleting any remaining supplies. You know the way it works. You're seeing it right now with the value of some firearms and ammunition that are actually selling for up to triple to cost of just a few months ago (if you can even find what you are looking for). The drought in the breadbasket of America continues apace and is serving as the epicenter for the 2013 drought that is expected to severely test American food-production and stress family budgets. Of course there are many other factors that go into the price and availability of foods, such as the cost of oil, political gamesmanship, and more. It's a pretty safe bet that the near-term and longer term outlook for food in our country is bleak and risky.
