Your missing the point,in a shtf "scenario" there is really no "free" market.There is a "barter" economy that is unknown.What is the base and what is the pillar.The barter economy can go 2 ways,either a FTF type or a "market" type,the "FTF" is neighbors trading,the "market" type is always at risk for a single entity ta control.'08.
