Comprehensive list of REAL things that won’t vanish in the next great financial collapse

This is a special report exclusively published on Collapse.news

How much of your money will only exist as a computer record on the day the global banking system fails?

When you log in to your online banking account and view your account balance, do you really think those electronic digits on your computer screen are real money?

Most people keep the vast majority of their savings and “cash” in electronic form, existing only as a computer record in a distant bank so far away that they don’t even know its physical location. All electronically stored assets are not REAL, and they can all disappear in the blink of an eye for a long list of reasons.

When the global banking system fails — now a mathematical inevitability — banking customers will be shocked to discover that electronic numbers on a digital screen are not real wealth. As they say in the gold bug business, if you can’t touch it, it isn’t real.

Gold, silver and other precious metals are real wealth for the simple reason that they don’t vanish as banking systems fail. The stock market, bond market or real estate bubble market can crater all they want… your gold and silver are still just as real (and just as heavy) as they were before. More importantly, they’re just as valuable… or even more so because precious metals tend to skyrocket in value when fiat currencies collapse.

What I’m trying to get at here is that if you don’t own gold, silver or other precious metals as at least part of your savings portfolio, you might find yourself in real trouble when SHTF. Only real assets will outlast the cataclysmic financial “day of reckoning” that’s coming. That list can include any or all of the following:

Things of real value that are portable:

  • Cash (green paper money, which may become instantly worthless, so don’t hold too much)
  • Pre-1963 coins (that contain silver content)
  • Physical metals (gold, silver, platinum)
  • Collector’s coins, stamps and historical firearms
  • Practical firearms and suppressors (silencers)
  • Bearer bonds or corporate stock shares
  • Natural medicine, seeds and essential oils
  • Iodine, useful for water purification and protection vs. radioactive iodine-131
  • Museum-quality art
  • Valuable yachts or boats if used as the bugout transport of choice
  • Small aircraft, if you fly out as your bugout strategy
  • Deeds to land assets (paper proof of ownership)
  • Antibiotics and prescription painkillers or insulin (high value, easy to carry)
  • Bitcoin wallets on a thumb drive, hopefully encrypted and backed up somewhere else (will only work if the internet stays alive)
  • Night vision equipment (PVS-14)
  • Small radiation detectors
  • THINGS YOU KNOW: (all the things you know are, by definition, portable)
    • Medical knowledge / first aid / surgical experience / infectious disease
    • Communications knowledge / HAM operator / shortwave radio
    • Firearms knowledge / gunsmithing / long-range shooting
    • Natural medicine knowledge / natural antibiotics / wound healing / prevention
    • Food knowledge / harvesting / preparation / preservation / seed saving / wildcrafting
    • Workshop knowledge / repair / making tools / blacksmithing / construction
    • Navigation knowledge / compass navigation / topo map reading / area knowledge
    • Rural living knowledge / animal care / roping / knot tying / butchering

Things of real value that are not (easily) portable:

  • Land, real estate and commercial buildings
  • Ranch animals / cattle
  • Vehicles, tractors and even construction equipment
  • Ammunition
  • Ammo reloading equipment / brass / bullets
  • Storable food
  • Water filters
  • Honey (it’s food and medicine, and lasts for decades)
  • Salt (very heavy but also invaluable if you need some)
  • Water wells, springs or flowing water sources
  • Large water storage containers / tanks
  • Recreational vehicles that can be lived in
  • Solar power systems
  • Defensive bunkers / underground homes / shelters
  • Alcohol stills
  • Communications gear: HAM radios and antennas
  • Machine shops or heavy tools
  • Large generators
  • Fuel stores (diesel, propane, natural gas)
  • Ballistic protection gear (helmets, vests, shields)
  • Heavy equipment grease, hydraulic fluid and engine oil
  • Knives, machetes, hatchets and tomahawks
  • Tactical optics (binoculars or magnifiers)
  • Portable light sources: Lanterns, flashlights
  • BIC lighters and magnesium fire starters (easy to barter, may be portable but are not very valuable per kg)
  • Protective gear vs. biological agents and infectious disease (masks, surgical gloves, body suits, etc.)
  • Personal hygiene items: toilet paper / feminine hygiene / soap
  • Canning equipment, food dehydrators or smoke houses
  • Bicycles and other human-powered gear

Things that will be (mostly) useless in an apocalyptic collapse:

  • Pensions
  • iPhones, Android and all mobile devices
  • Digital bank accounts holding “money” in electronic form
  • Paper currency (might hold value temporarily, but could collapse suddenly)
  • Check books (nobody will accept a check when the banks are down)
  • Anything that runs on gas (will be hard to find fuel)
  • GPS navigation devices (won’t work without satellites and power)
  • Apartments at very high levels of buildings (no electricity means “vertical hiking” up dangerous stairwells)
  • Luxury vehicles with heavy reliance on electronics (the simpler the vehicle, the better)
  • Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter and social media
  • Your Blu-Ray DVD collection
  • Cell phone communications
  • Government entitlements: Food stamps / Medicare / Medicaid / Unemployment
  • Academic degrees in “social justice” topics
  • Electronic books (Kindle)
  • U.S. Treasury bills or other forms of government debt (including municipal bonds)

Right now might be a good time to trade VIRTUAL assets for REAL assets

The bottom line? Right now might be a good time to start trading your virtual assets for real assets. Otherwise, you might end up losing your virtual assets when the financial house of cards implodes.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
