Advice To Europeans: Get Your Money Now

Let’s get right down to it.

The European governments are not going to do the right thing, as I noted they must in my earlier post.  They’re going to continue to play games with your life and futures, promising things they know they cannot deliver.

In the meantime they are meeting right now — I’m sure of it — to design a new currency system in which you will take it in the ass.

There is only one defense you can enact as an individual to this – get your money out of there and do it now, moving it somewhere safer.

I don’t think this is the “long weekend” where you’ll get screwed, but I don’t know that for certain.

What I do know for certain is that your government will not tell you when it is about to bone you in the butt, and that is about to happen.

If Greece leaves, and I expect they will, the odds are high that the entire Euro will fracture and as this happens your deposits and other financial instruments denominated in Euros will be converted to the new local currency and then immediately devalued, stealing anywhere from a few percent to half or more of every Euro you have.

Therefore you either act preemptively or you go to the store, buy a big jar of Vasoline and hunt around outside for a nice stick to insert between your teeth — because you will soon need both.
