It's more important than ever to have wealth in systems that will maintain their value over time, even during hyperinflation.

Metals can't prevent hardship, but they should allow you to have purchasing power when everything gets messy.
Sometimes the world gets a little too hectic and scary. It makes me want to retreat to the safety of the house where I grew up.

Whatever your priorities are, now's the time to clarify them and start making moves to protect yourself and your loved ones.
