This boom / bust pattern has been going on for decades.
Be prepared for another round of deflation such as the Japan “lost decade.” Recession / Deflation may global and longer lasting this time.
Protect yourself with valuable fiat money hidden in a secret place underground. Coins do not earn negative interest such as in banks.
Sacagawea dollars weigh only 8.1 grams = 0.0178574 pounds so $10,000 weighs only 178 pounds.
A Ton of coins is worth $112,000 irregardless of Obama, Yellen, the fed, or any bank bankruptcy.
Coins don’t get eaten by termites and hard for criminals to haul away.
US$ is legal tender so can always be used for transactions (even in most foreign countries).
Time to get out of the financial system and put your money underground. ASAP.
If SHTF and electronics fail you will have the only money in town. If no SHTF then deflation will increase the value of your cash hoard.
Lots of cheap land for coin burial near Elko Nevada that has functioning gold mines doing well. Upscale community visible from freeway for decades.
Make sure you have reliable access to clean water.
