Hope you have plenty of other hard assets because during the times of hyperinflation, you will spend 95% of your cash on food.

Al Waleed

He also just about owns Citi mortgage too. I was shocked when I saw his Fox shares.

Al Waleed owned tons of Citicorp. The Feds pumped $380 billion - yes Billion - almost half a trillion to “save’ Citi. The Citi Bob Rubin ran as Vice Chairman making at least $20 m a year as he was such a “genius.” Al Waleed owns everything cause it is really Saudi Arabia’s stock portfolio not his.

You want physical gold. It is believe that there is not enough gold to back up the the iras
just google
tungsten gold bars
your gold ira could be backed with this stuff

is there gold in Fort knox

Even if you have gold you can not eat it! and some one has to want it you want to have like 1/10 oz coins for easy transaction

Also the new finance law is going to track all gold purchases sooo are they going to confiscate it again
Gold has risk also

Of course, you get necessities first, then physical gold, silver etc, then if you have cash left, you better put it in something where it will keep up with inflation, and whatever that is, it should be diversified.

I agree with the points you are making, and have already seen the links you provided. I never at any time said Gold did not have risk. In fact, the best time to have acquired gold was several years ago. I would buy one of the cheaper precious metals to store at home, myself.

If you cash in your IRA or 401k, you could raise yourself to a higher tax bracket, and pay 10% penalty. I have no intention of paying the government 60% or more of the money I have left in my retirement nest egg. I simply gave one of hundreds of options to consider - not a blanket recommendation. Must I also point out that your portfolio should be diversified? I kinda assumed Freepers were smart enough to know that.

If a person did invest in a gold IRA, they could treat it like a ponzi scheme, get in & get out before the crash of the coming gold bubble. Get necessities in order, stash some precious metals, and goods likely to keep for a long time and able to be bartered. etc etc.

You are still going to need liquidity to pay your property taxes, and buy perishables. If hyperinflation hits, that liquidity can not be cash in the bank, because it will loose it's value too fast. Bottom line there are no perfect options.

By the way, everyone knows you can't eat gold. I assume everyone has enough sense to know to get the necessities covered first, especially since that has been a recurring theme on this forum for months.

Yes the 12 districts - 2 in Missouri. I guess they were trying to cover both sides of the Mississippi.
