    So, it looks like the virus will cause a lot of damage to the economy at large.

    As it is, the value of money will start to drop, as it started in my country, because of the government. They decided to print additional money, which never really works.

    So, as it is I am thinking of buying something before all the savings I got are reduced to nothing. What do you think would be the best option for the current times? Gold? Fuel? Supplies? Survival Gear?

    I am honestly not looking forward to the whole coronavirus nonsense creeping up upon me.

    From what I understand, gold ain't actually doing too well right now. Don't quote me on that. As for what's comin, you need the following:

    Booze, bullets and booty.

    I just bought 30 copies of Euro Truck Simulator 2 to show future generations the decadent lifestyle of pre-apocalypse world that led us all into the abyss.

    Alternatively you could invest in some Biedronka plushies as their price is still going up on the internet.

    Honestly, this is what happens when you have a world where the system is built on economy.
    One thing touches it and the bubble bursts for everyone.

    Hopefully now, we can see that Capitalism doesn't work.

    So you're telling me we are not supposed to trust in the free market to bring us trough this crisis? I mean this is what we've been told for decades. The more liberal the market will be and the smaller the government the less issues we will have. Strange.

    Buy Krugerrands. Gold may be at a low right now (although I read the opposite), but trust me, it won't stay that way.

    The 2020 depression. Maybe it'll last 20 years, too. Fuck this life. Didn't get the girl, almost lost my hair, now this. Can I get a reset? Send me back to 1995, full internet connection, the works. I'll be content.

    If people really think this is already bad than they should simply wait till our global eco systems start to collapse due to the destruction of habitats and the environment and we're actually looking at large amounts of food prices skyrocketing due to crop failures and agricultural issues by draughts, flooding and contamination of fertile soil. Compared to that this crisis will look like child's play.

    I have a gas mask, and in case of societal collapse I have a motorcycle boots, a leather jacket, and a whole bunch of spikes and studs for the marauder outfit and nails and barbed wire for the baseball bat.
