Max Yemets was back on talking more about hyper-inflation and how debts get destroyed. He told the story of how his father took out a loan to purchase a bicycle back in post-Soviet controlled Ukraine. It was a large loan by their standards; but when hyper-inflation hit, his father was able to repay the loan for virtually nothing. There’s something instructive about this scenario, and history could very well repeat itself. Imagine having a large mortgage that you get to pay back in greatly depreciated dollars.
Max believes that if you aren’t buying metals now, you should be! He suggests starting out small with pre-1965, US, 90% silver coins. Buy a few Quarters for around $6 each. Pretty soon, you’ll just intuitively understand what real money is all about, and you’ll know exactly what to do.
