Crisis Money Guide

Dear Reader,

During a credit crisis, money doesn’t just stop circulating, it vanishes.

Assets become unsellable, stock portfolios crash, wealth disappears.

People cling to cash. They want real old-fashioned money that they can put in their pockets and their safes…

Just look at the recent examples of Argentina and Greece, and you’ll see how easily cash can vanish.

Banks and ATMs were shut down, withdrawal limits were imposed.

Within days a panic set in. People were desperate to get their hands on money to pay for food…for fuel…and everything else they needed.

After the banks shutdown in 2010, people in Greece resorted to meeting in town squares and bartering their skills for what they needed.

Now, we’re not suggesting a Greek-style currency collapse is going to happen here in Australia.

But hypothetically, what would you do if you suddenly lost access to cash and credit — even for a short period of time?

It seems so farfetched you may not have even thought about it until now.

But we want you to be prepared for the unthinkable. That’s why it’s crucial to know about cash alternatives.

This free ‘Crisis Money Guide’ from our friends at Bonner & Partners shows you practical solutions to keep your world moving in a crisis.

Enter your email address below to get your free copy of the ‘Crisis Money Guide’ and learn:

  • Cash alternatives: An early dollar substitute could turn out to be gold and silver. This is exactly what happened in Argentina during the country’s most recent financial collapse. Learn where to find the best gold deals, how to assess quality (and true worth) in minutes, and how to avoid getting ripped off by merchants.
  • 10 alternative mediums of exchange that aren’t currency or metals: These could be the highest value resources to own if society is stressed to the breaking point. If you can’t get your hands on cash, credit, or metals, these are the next best thing. Find out how many you might already have lying around your home.
  • Nine indispensible skills to have during a crisis: Barter markets sprung up in Greece in 2010 after credit collapsed and cash limits were imposed. These skills aren’t money, but they’re valuable enough you can barter for anything else you need. Importantly, they’re beyond the reach of the government and tax-free.

The ‘Crisis Money Guide’ can help you adapt to…and survive…a major currency crisis.

How The Rum Rebellion could make you a more informed — and a more profitable — investor

When you claim your free report you’ll also receive a complimentary subscription to The Rum Rebellion, a libertarian, free-thinking, and rebellious daily essay hitting your inbox every weekday.

Edited by Greg Canavan, Selva Friegedo and Vern Gowdie, The Rum Rebellion brings you a take on the financial and political world you won’t find anywhere else. Our editors write about the stock market, gold, fake news, political hypocrisy, China, interest rates, and various big picture themes and viewpoints that don’t see the light of day in the mainstream media.

Underpinning these views is our (pragmatic) libertarian take on the world. We believe, for the most part, governments should let people live their lives with minimal interference, and tax us less. The less money the government has, the less damage they will do to the economy.

Whatever the daily essay covers…it will be from a unique, irreverent and refreshingly alternate point of view.

If you suspect that what you read in the papers and see on television is a PR version of the financial world — and that you’re not getting the real story — you’ll be glad to have The Rum Rebellion in your life.

The Rum Rebellion is 100% free and delivered to your inbox every morning, six days a week.

You’ll never be charged a cent to read it.

All advice is general advice and has not taken into account your personal circumstances. Please seek independent financial advice regarding your own situation, or if in doubt about the suitability of an investment.

Calculating Your Future Returns: The value of any investment and the income derived from it can go down as well as up. Never invest more than you can afford to lose and keep in mind the ultimate risk is that you can lose whatever you’ve invested. While useful for detecting patterns, the past is not a guide to future performance. Some figures contained in this report are forecasts and may not be a reliable indicator of future results. Any potential gains in this do not include taxes, brokerage commissions, or associated fees. Please seek independent financial advice regarding your particular situation. Investments in foreign companies involve risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Specifically, changes in the rates of exchange between currencies may cause a divergence between your nominal gain and your currency-converted gain, making it possible to lose money once your total return is adjusted for currency.

I must say that I find the “Rum Rebellion” a refreshing read.

You address subjects that are just not addressed by the mainstream media.

I find your economic and financial analysis generally insightful and your political views enlightening.

I believe you help people see the “other side” of the trade which is where the real value is 🙂

Keep up the good work.

EmileThe Rum Rebellion Reader

Thank you for the insightful commentary you regularly provide in the Rum Rebellion.

I have enjoyed your ready response to the everyday happenings of what is going on around us and the drivers behind the scenes.

Your balanced blend of the political realities and financial imperatives shine a reality check on the drivel fed up to us in the biased media. Particularly highlighting the false rankings of the new world religion of globalization and climate change.

JohnThe Rum Rebellion Reader

Keep up the good work.

Please pass on my comments to Vern Gowdie on his latest article in The Rum Rebellion – The Class of ’39 published on 27/09/19

What a great article! Such clear-sighted common sense – we urgently need those qualities in the era of hyped-up, manipulated public debates bombarding us these days.

I have been very concerned at the tactics of mobilising young school students and whipping them into a frenzy of fear. An adolescent mind has an ‘all or nothing’ tendency and demands instant results.

Managing the complex, long-term issues of climate and technology requires long-term commitment, detailed information and strategic planning – the kind of dogged, hard slog that Vern’s ancestors had to put in to build the foundations of the Australia we enjoy today. It is those qualities that will help us take Australia and the world into a sustainable future.
