Today I appeared on Andrew Horowitz’s show, The Disciplined Investor. We discussed survival investing, which I define as allocating your assets in a way that will protect your wealth in the event of a dollar collapse or the event when major inflation besets the world financial system. While Andrew isn’t a big fan of precious metals, especially silver, he did see some logic in acquiring assets that could potentially protect us again major systemic disruptions. While I wouldn’t classify myself as an extreme financial-prepper, I would say my confidence, in the ability of men like the Ben Bernank and Tiny Timmy Geithner to look out for my economic well being, has been greatly shaken.
After being forced to bailout the Too Big To Fails, I have come to the belief government is not only the problem, but it can never be the solution to the problems that it’s already created. Rather, the likelihood of a global financial cataclysm increases by the day; and the gold and silver, along with certain commodities, may well be the only things left standing. So if that makes me a financial-prepper, so be it. It’s a risk that I’m more than willing to take.
