I said "normal AS possible". A person could be living in a tent but they will still try living as best they can. Of course everything would be different. Thats a no-brainer. People will try to make the best life possible, which will eventually include trading. I think in many parts of the country trading will begin almost immediately. In many parts of the country people already do a lot of trading. Once the shock of a devastating SHTF is over people will start coming together for trading and mutual protection. They always have."Normal" life WTSHTF will not be normal, not the normal anyone knew before and trying to live a similar type of lifestyle after the collapse is doomed to failure.
trading may be possible in a functioning democracy but after a national or global catastrophe much of the trading material will be lost or destroyed, trading will not be possible or safe for many decades until some form of functioning community has arisen, until then it will be a case of looking after "number one".
this is my problem, survival post collapse will be different in Britain than it will in the US, conditions are different and people are different and trying to explain that to someone who dosent live here can result in misunderstandings.
Not everyone are hermits and hates everyone else.
