A rat?

There are pictures on the internet of Russians selling body parts during WWII. Due to shortage of food people resorted into cannibalism.

Beans, rice, canned goods.

Seeds and seed potatoes. Start composting to make your soil rich. If you do not have a yard, find a secret space in the wild to plant. I have a friend who owns an acre and leaves it up to nature to water it. She usually has a pretty good harvest. Main thing is to keep the critters from munching it.

Everything but precious metals.

Of those things you can buy, there will be much less available quantities (esp. commodities like food & fuel,) much less variety, and much less competition than before. Expect shortages in this tighter market.

Since we're inflationary right now, and likely to be hyper-inflationary very soon, everyone will be trying to stock up and buy up all the important things, flooding the market with lots of devalued cash.

However, some sectors are and will become deflationary. These are the areas that do poorly in this super bearish economy, like investment bank stocks, real estate, luxury items, etc.

Eventually, after the dollar completely collapses, and the foreign sovereign wealth funds have almost completely liquidated their vastly hyper-inflated massive US dollar holdings back into our inflated economy, the stock market then panics and collapses, and then most trade eventually slows down to a trickle.

Most everyone may then lose their jobs, then run out of cash, and then the economy may flip and begin sliding down into a deflationary cycle, perhaps like 1933.

Then people won't have the money to buy anything, and supply dries up even more with most businesses going under.

Not much; didn't you ever watch the Waltons? Barter and trade are going to be the tools of the near future.
