Broadside, twee, etc,
Without going into too much detail, about a year ago I got an email from a friend who worked as an investment banker in NYC. He said, in no uncertain terms, that we should pull all our cash out of the bank and invest in hard assets. He then quit his job, sold his house and moved him and his family 2000+ miles across the country. He now lives up in the Rocky Mountains and works at some podunk bank. Don’t know what scared him so bad to do that, but if he is willing to do all that, then we were gonna do what he said.
Like you Broadside, we yanked everything except “operational” funds. Some we kept liquid, most we bought PM’s and other hard assets with. The liquid we keep for when things start to go wonky – like if you need to buy something and the seller will accept cash only, no debit cards, no EBT cards, no credit cards. Once our phony-baloney fiat currency becomes worthless, then we will switch to barter or dealing in PM’s…
