I am a retired military officer who believes we are in the end game of a Global debt based fiat system. These fiat finance systems always end the same way - a hyper-inflationary collapse caused by massive currency creation , both real and digital. The printing always happens due to the central banks need to be seen as doing something to grow the economy which always slows due to excessive compounding debt. The system will be reset upon collapse and the main beneficiary will be physical GOLD. It is the primary wealth preservation asset that has stood the test of time and will increase greatly in value as it has been long suppressed in its role as the global Store Of Value.
Kirk hates “work.” Having never been cut out for a traditional office job, he has spent his career working at or on tech startups while hustling on the side to build a small real estate portfolio.
Kirk's investing career began in 2001 with his first purchase of Apple. He's been long ever since. He's experimented with a number of other styles but has always come back to follow the advice of Peter Lynch "Invest in what you know."
Individual investor. I have been trying to create wealth for me and my family for over 30 years. The market correction since the early 80's have paired gains, plus some bad choices.
Still looking for something that works.
