As we’ve mentioned before, internationalization can be thought of as a buffet where you take what you want and leave what you don’t. Some people want to simply diversify their assets across jurisdictions, while others want to internationalize their income streams. Still others go the whole hog and internationalize themselves personally as well.
IM Correspondent Jeff Thomas takes us through some common sense strategies you can use to avoid what he calls, “The Great Unraveling”, a coming period of volatility that will end with the collapse of much of the First World economies…

Jeff Thomas addresses an important topic and a constant source of argument within economic circles – whether we’re heading into an overall deflation or inflation scenario. And if inflation, whether it will take on a “hyper” aspect to it as occurred in the German Weimar Republic of the ’20s, and more recently Yugoslavia in the ’90s or Zimbabwe of the past few years.

It’s into this second category that today’s feature article falls.

They seem to agree that the near-term future will not be better but worse than it is now.
