Gold and silver are good, but a lot of countries will make it very hard to sell those, or tax them heavily. Look far and wide to store wealth, and not all in the same places. Some foreign currency, a business, land, cash, etc.
“Some foreign currency, a business, land, cash, etc.”
Land is the worst asset to have in the “new normal” economy; it is being used to strangle the middle class here in the northeast via taxation (which is why nobody wants to buy it except foreigners).
I’ve been warning people for years that their retirement accounts would be used at some point to save social security; without confiscating it, the government will probably use it to reduce your Social Security payments. The bird in the hand is still worth two in the bush...
You’re probably right, but krugerrands and old US silver coins remain currency. I don’t see the government calling in mercury dimes and walking liberty halves, but maybe I am wrong.
