Everywhere I turn, I see tales of financial doom and gloom. The stock market is crashing! The dollar is inflating! Oil is peaking and homes are foreclosing! If you listen to the breathless media, it’s 2008 all over again.
Maybe it is, and maybe it isn’t. I don’t know. What I do know is that I’ve learned from past meltdowns, and this time I’m ready for almost anything. (I say almost anything because in the unlikely event of hyperinflation, I’m as ****ed as everybody else.) This time, I’m prepared so that whatever happens to the national economy, my personal economy is on solid footing.
