You ARE being difficult.
I have told you how to protect some of your wealth and you are coming up with excuses as to why you cannot do it.
You seem to think you must do this IN your apartment. For some reason you refuse to entertain the idea that other locations exist on this planet.
But I get it, by sticking with only your apartment, you can make up excuses and not have to do anything. I hope your feeble excuses do not discourage
others from taking measures to protect their wealth.
But you are making the assumption that I have wealth to protect. If wealth is measured in how much tobacco, food, bullets, ect. that one can
store..one doesn't need a lot of wealth to collect that.
As far as I am concerned, precious metals are over - valued and will probably crash as well.
Really...The only reason that precious metals cost what they do is because someone else says that they are valuable (same for diamonds unless one will
use them for cutting or grinding something-for the exception of that they aren't really worth anything). Sure, gold doesn't oxidize and it's shiny and
pretty, but what good would it really be after a true total economic collapse? May as well make bullets out of it, they will be of more use.
Sure precious metals are used in all types of technology, but who knows what kind of condition that technology would be in if there were a total
collapse, and if the govt. got desperate enough for it, I wouldn't be suprised if they came to get the rings off my fingers. So much for the
Some assume that in an economic collapse that gold or silver will be the instrument of trade but what if it winds up not being the case?
