What can you do to help get through the transition safely and not have everything at risk in corporate banks?
1. There are IRA/401K options that allow you to buy gold and keep it at home or wherever else you like in your own keeping. Consider transferring your IRA/401K into physical gold and simply keeping it in a home safe.
2. Remember--- always---- that Postal Money Orders are backed by gold and are easily exchanged for any form of currency on the planet. A Postal Money Order is like the "cash of all cashes".
Unlike physical gold, a PMO is as easy to transport as any paper currency. And although it is totally fungible like a currency, you can -- if you wish -- restrict who can use it similar to a check, simply by filling out the information sections or not.
I have always liked Postal Money Orders and often use them for my own savings, even though there is a nominal fee to convert FRNs to PMOs. The gold-backing, the freedom from confiscation, the ease of transport and storage, and the universal ability to convert into local currency is well worth it.
But, but, but, BUT...... I hear some of you saying------what about the interest I can accrue on my savings account in a commercial bank?
