Lot of talk out there about the coming collapse of the dollar.
From the multitude of sources I peruse, it seems evident the dollar as a reserve currency is on its way out. Our ruling cabal has overplayed it hand and has been caught dealing from the bottom of the deck. More and more countries are unloading their U.S. Treasuries notes and using their own currencies for exchanges in trade. They sense a change in the air with the dollar being weaponized and used around the world as a club to bend governments to follow orders, more commonly known as "The Rules Based Order".
I've noted here before my savings account at a local credit union eking out a whole 14 cents a month for a $3000 balance in interest earnings.
Whoopee, $1.78 a year which the IRS could penalize me for failing to declare on my tax return. And probably seize my entire $3000.
We are captive population in more ways than you can imagine.
So if the rest of the world is unloading their greenbacks, shouldn't we also? Keeping your savings in a bank or CU is a losing proposition, they just lend it out at 10-20% interest and make out like bandits. Did I just say bandits? Oops. I mean profiting by "The Rules Based Order".
So diversifying your "wealth", meager as it may be, becomes a requisite to remain a Haves in a population of Have-nots. Changing your greenbacks into useful barter items such as ammo, hard liquor, Tide laundry detergent, non-perishable food, motor oils, etc. may seem over the top. But they remain units of value and can always be either bartered away or used yourself.
Gold and silver is another option, but the prices are manipulated by the big banks and the uber wealthy and many of us cannot afford to invest a lot in it. An exception is, maybe, pre-1964 silver coins.
Farmable land is what the big boys (Gates, Soros, Cargill, Monsanto, etc.) are stocking up on. It may wind up being more valuable than even gold. You might say farmable land, reliable well water, and seeds is becoming the new gold standard.
I'm open to new ideas,
Anyone have any? The thread is open.
