Watching the global economy, the geopolitical landscape and the dire state of the world is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. Everywhere you look you can see disaster waiting to happen.
There are wars popping up all over the place, or at least the threat of wars. There are economies in free fall. There are markets that are defying gravity. And there is the constant reality of mounting debts that can never be repaid and paper money that is constantly being “printed”.
All this points to danger ahead. The only question is, “Why hasn’t this happened already?”
It’s a good question, and one that can only be answered by referring to the power of centralised states to manage both the media and the markets, to manipulate things just enough to carry on for a bit longer.
But if you take the time to look at all this mayhem with your own eyes – not through the eyes of the mainstream media – then either you close them in despair and hope it’s not happening, or you start to think what you can do to protect yourself.
For example: What will you do if you wake up one morning to find money siphoned out of your bank account to “bail-in” banks in trouble? What will you do if a hyperinflation were to arrive? What will you do if there’s a run on the banks and the ATMs no longer work?
Of course no one wants to spend all their days worrying about such things, as there is enough to worry about in life without speculating on the future. But it does make sense to have a rational plan for such eventualities.
And I don’t believe implementing such a plan is that hard, especially if you know what to do.
For me I try to keep things simple. I look at history and realise that experiments with paper money always fail in the end. I also realise that historically people have always chosen gold and silver as their preferred money – money that is not created and manipulated by governments.
Today we have yet another option – Bitcoin. In fact, some people are calling Bitcoin “Gold 2.0″, because it has many of the properties of gold – including its limited supply and lack of government control.
So the way I see it, a sane plan of action would be to invest in gold, silver and Bitcoin as a way of hedging all bets. We already know that gold and silver never lose all their value. In fact, if you look at historical charts you quickly realise that both these precious metals are proven hedges against inflation over time.
Sure, Bitcoin is more of an unknown, more of a speculation, but at the same time it represents a pathbreaking technology that I believe is destined to change the world. It also represents a form of money that already has an infrastructure in place that enables the buying and selling of stuff – an essential requirement when thinking about alternatives to paper money.
If you’re not up to speed with Bitcoin, then I invite you to download my free report – Bitcoin: The Money Revolution – as it will give you a good primer and starting point.
Gold and silver need no such explanations of course, and still represent the most trusted forms of asset protection.
If you feel you are missing the boat here, that you should get your hands on such metals, but have not yet done so, then I have a very interesting wealth accumulation and preservation strategy I’d like to share with you – a way you can get your hands on gold and silver at cost, even in the smallest of quantities.
Even better, this wealth accumulation/preservation plan can literally pay you to share it with others, while you continue to build up your own savings in gold and/or silver. In other words, if you don’t have a lot of funds to buy meaningful amounts of gold and silver, then this plan can solve that problem for you, giving you the means to not only implement your own precious metals savings plan, but also earn additional cash to fund it.
