you should go look up what happened in germany pre ww2. gold, silver, diamond, artworks are time proven money that transends time/culture/country thru revolutions. dollar bills especially usd will become totally useless. if uncle ben prints, silver goes up... if uncle ben stops printing, the economy tanks big... deficits goes thru the roof... usd tanks... silver goes up. inflation, it goes up and deflation it goes up. buy slw or physical... maybe slv options knowing possibility of counterparty risk.
