There are 1000's of strategies everything from:
Guns vs butter to Gold vs 'everything'
Like playing the stock market, being diversified, having a little bit of everything, including salt, is likely a better strategy for most people.

Ammo should be high on the list though but yes little bit of everything that you can easily store, transport, safeguard etc

Salt is crucial but have to have food to add it too as well, will always be a good trading item at anytime in a SHTF scenario

Im practicing this summer ways to get salt from ocean water quickest and easiest , I always have used sea salt for the last 25 years exceed  for boiling beans and pasta I use some regular salt as well

Yeah, no

2,000yrs ago, salt production was controlled and yes, it was used as "currency".
It is hard to imagine a path where it would ever have that status again.

If you are prepping for the apocalypse, yes you should stock salt.
The question is how much, because it's easy to go crazy since it is so cheap and easy to store long term.

When it comes to prepping, everyone has a comfort level.

I can tell you, as I approach 60 this year,
I wish I would have bought more gold and silver than salt (or wheat, or rice, or.......)

ETA: I was never a big believer in stocking pool salt or water softener salt,
because the reality is, Morton table salt is cheap and if it's something I plan on eating,
I don't really need to try to save $10 on a lifetime supply for me and the wife unit.  :icon_wink:

But I do suggest iodized for eating and non-iodized for canning. :)
