Whirlibird: “For me, this is the time to double down on efforts, while stuff is still “cheap” and plentiful.”

I agree. Read about Venezuela these days. “Couldn’t happen to one of the richest oil countries…” A vignette from “Lucifer’s Hammer” sticks with me, if I recall correctly: The survivors diving into a flooded KMart, and seeing all the ruined goods like paper products and corn flakes, unusable, so cheap and so available a few months ago, and rarer than diamonds now. Unobtainable at any price.
