I think this qualifies as financial porn, it runs a bit long:
Stansberry's Investment Advisory
The executive summary:
Hyperinflation, Govt will confiscate all hard assets of it's citizens to pay its debts when "the end" comes. Riots, chaos, etc
Solution: you can buy gold and store it in a foreign country. Find ways to grow food and get clean water when we go third world. Will also let you "legally" transfer money to foreign banks without the goverment knowing (shhh, don't tell anybody
). I didn't listen to the whole thing, like I said it ran long and when they recommend buying gold and storing in a foreign country I couldn't take it any longer. If you are suicidal, don't watch it. They use yugoslovia as their example, I'm not a history expert, but I thought their economic problems were a result of other factors, hence the break up.
I didn't realize Roosevelt confiscated gold, I can't imagine what the reaction would be today if the govt tried that.
