Ok, I Can See We Got Troubles But How To And Where

Recommended Posts

I have no idea.

I can work things out, i can make a case, but persuading the missus that banks may not be the best place is tricky.

Where should she put it and why?

shares in Heinz maybe?

I had a day of visiting people yesterday, all so obviously wrapped up in the fear of losing cashflow, particularly new money coming into the system. No cashflow means the inability to carry jobs through to conclusion. Dead in the water and closed down overnight. Everybody puts a brave face on it all, but you can see (and virtually smell) the fear in the eyes of people at the sharp end now. The cosseted ones will carry in their normally dutiful and responsibility free positions until they get "called into the office."

Obviously the high street is going to tank now, and when the vibrant coffee bar on the corner goes, then it's game over.

What I'm trying to say is, thinking it all through, I don't have a clue either, apart from Heinz..

The money might be better spent putting up camera surveillance and an electric fence?

she should read about how people historically avoided the worst of the collapse from people who have seen one and lived through it

dimitri orlov on the soviet unions collapse.

read and absorb that info, then take action on whatever scale you feel is best though paper into hard assets is best all round a mix of the below is my best guess for as complete a protection as your going to get

her net worth divided into

10% in cash in at least 3 banks with cash cards etc

5% in silver coins (from chards in blackpool for example)

Show her a picture of Applegarth and the other muppets that run our esteemed institutions, she'll probably choose to shove it down her bra instead.
