    Ammunition is a good place to start if the financial collapse is coming. Otherwise the zombies will take what the prudent people have stashed away, and if you pick the wrong option you will be needing to negotiate with those that picked the right option.

    I dare to disagree, unless you are a trained soldier and have enough resources to man a 24/7 guard for your "fort". Armed people are considered combattants and much more likely to die in any conflict than unarmed people ... just read the history of the Wild West.

    i thought this was the Good News thread!!

    Lots of cash and cash equivs , some good quality shares, a few bonds but not too many(corporate or government depending on how gloomy you are) some units of gold of silver that are small enough to be useful for barter.
    Thats how I see safety. Once it gets to guns and ammo its all over
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    Tobacco and lots of it. Lightweight, easy to carry. Expensive. Huge demand when everyone's stressed out. And best of all. Easy to grow.

    Haha, thanks peat. While I did appreciate the banter it was good to get a semi serious response. While I have some basic skills in evaluating good companies from bad I don’t have enough life history to guide how to manage what people are predicting to be a messy correction resulting form the massive debt loadings out there. I’m heading for utilities, some retirement sector. 30% cash. Some dabbles in A2 while managing its mood swings. 30 yrs old so happy to be on the more risky side of the ledger and might try a small hunk of gold for good measure.

    Goldmines can do better than gold which moves relatively slowly.
    The jury is still out on NTL though so dyor on that one (I do have a handful just in case myself).

    Yeah its an interesting phenomena. I have to pay my dutch broker to keep my Euro's in their equivalent of cash management account. (its not much and the amount I have there is not much but boy does it play tricks with the mind when you see your statement with - interest, when you have a + account balance)

    Pretty solid GDP numbers out this morning .....0.6% for the quarter and 2.5% annual

    Better than RB and Treasury forecasts

    Doesn’t justify OCR cuts in medium term

    But Orr has his own agenda so we better pump up the economy even further

    Not sure why Orr's being dumped on & just want to put in a good word for our RBG.
    Everything so up in the air at the moment with US China India tariff wars, Brexit & whole UK mess, massive debt, record low interest rates, housing etc, must be the most challenging period for RB in decades.
    As RBG he's a breath of fresh air & a great communicator, trying to reach out to & convey some economic literacy to the 95% of the population (including most of the media who report this stuff) who somehow have reached adulthood without any curiosity or idea of finance & the way economic issues directly impact their lives.
    Plus trying to increase protection for bank depositors ( & ultimately tax payers) in these uncertain times, against some pretty shonky undermining from the 'too big to let fail' banks who've been aided & abetted by some clueless journalism.
