HOW TO CREATE SURVIVAL CURRENCY: Just a short note to alert readers at LewRockwell.com that the investigative journalist James Corbett of CORBETT REPORTS, in his Episode #394, presents helpful and practical information on how to create survival currency.
Corbett says any system of exchange you come up with requires community before currency; you need a community of people who agree as “freedom cells” to participate in a way of exchanging goods and services. The ideal is to find a community where you all agree to produce essentials for life and use precious metals as the medium of exchange.
One example Corbett provides is a local currency established in a small Greek town. A community of 900 exchange a currency that is local.
Another example: The town of Woergl in Austria during the great depression created scrip that was backed by schillings. The scrip became higher valued than the schilling.
Another idea is to create a list of businesses that accept precious metals as payment.
