a question for anyone except goldbugs: what will the value of my cash savings be relative to house prices in the future? if everything else is going to crash too, would my savings be worth more, less or the same if i held onto it for a year or two longer? i've been saving for most of my thirtar career and could now buy a house (in mainly the wrong areas) without a mortgage. so when would it get the most for its value? buy somewhere now and just be grateful that i won't be living in a bus shelter or hang on and find out that my money will somehow evapourate? and, yes, i'm aware of inflation but, won't that be countered by the presumed hpc?
