ZetaTalk Prediction 12/15/2001: We predict that long before the shift, a barter system will be replacing the current paper money system. The value of the dollar, in all countries, will be falling, such that in any transaction one or both parties will feel they are getting a fair deal only if a thing, not a representation, is given or received. This is a common practice in countries where the dollar is falling, and a natural migration as the thought occurs readily to mankind, the barter system being recent in their cultural evolution. What will this mean for the common man, and what will it mean for the rich? The common man will find they are pleased with themselves if they have had the foresight to secure goods of value, such as seeds or tools or dried food. The value of appliances that are dead and not able to run, even of cars unable to run over broken roads, will be zero. The value of items that can increase worth, such as a needle and thread which can repair clothing otherwise worthless, or a shovel that can create a garden otherwise a weed patch, will balloon. The rich will of course whine endlessly. If you are an accountant, and cannot translate this skill into becoming a tailor or herdsman or cook, your skill is useless!
Since this will become of importance real soon with the New Madrid rupture and
the European tsunami, it's of importance to get yourself familiar with this concept
Of course this video is about the time before the New Madrid rupture/European tsunami
and the pole shift so one should bear in mind that the items and skills to barter will be
different. For example if you keep chickens you could barter the eggs.
Or if you know how to sew clothes you could repair or make clothes for others in exchange
for other goods.
