If it's on the internet, then it must be true.

Why would it be necessary to obtain a NZ passport? A passport is not citizenship.

If the story is true, billionares prep just like we do, only difference is they have more money to do it better then we do. I'd rather be poor and happy then rich and sad.

Driven, are you sure you are from Kalifornia? You make a lot of sense.

There was a story a month ago about Peter Thiel (Trump supporter and one of the founders of PayPal) buying a large property in NZ. To buy in NZ, apparently you have to have a passport, and have to have lived there several years.

I can't find the article I read now, but it also mentioned that other tech billionaires are buying property on islands, remote areas. I believe zuckerberg has purchased much in Hawaii,

and if I remember right, Larry Ellison owns much of Lanai in the Hawaiian islands.

Maybe they are prepping, maybe they just want a nice vacation house (with 700 acres!)

I don't see what all the rage about New Zealand is about.

TEOTWAWKI --- BILLIONS = NOTHING. You are just another untrained slob who survived to die another day. This is why you prep so you can survive with out money.

Barter only goes so far and the merchant class has thrived in all of recorded history. What we see as money may change, but we will have something we use as money. Some prep to survive and others prep to thrive. Swamp

Interesting thought. If you have this kind of $$ to stash, how do you hold it so it's liquid? Are you smart enough not to trust Goldman Sachs with your holdings?

Think about holding PM's, cash, bitcoin, Swiss bank account? How do you get to it? How do you exchange it all when the grid fails? These guys are used to wire transfers and paper money handled for them by others.

Nice problem to have, yet still a problem.

How about common stocks? I suppose they can sometimes be a good investment.

If you have enough money, there are private gold accounts that operate much like Bitcoin or Vise, except all the transactions are in gold. If you have money then you need to diversify it beyond banks. Commodities, land, PM's, art, and antiquities, are just a few areas that have performed well for centuries.

I know and work with people who have tens of millions to protect and pass on. The top one or two percent are not hurting and that means millions of people are doing well. They need people to help them find their toys and that can have its rewards. Swamp
