I believe you are correct, I think the US might be the best place to weather the coming storm, but I also believe in getting as much wealth as I can completely out of reach, and to me that is crypto, and I think more people every day are starting to think the same way.You can't sell your business or sell your real estate when no one is buying. Yes people could do that now, at least on the real estate side. The people who own those downtown businesses can't sell their coffee shop for good money, they have already lost value due to lockdown.
Yes, young men might get out. But really who respects property rights in this world? Just about every country has instituted corona measures, I use that as a guide. If the Rona measures are there, then the taxation system will be coming to pay the 'debt'. Best bet is probably a place where the Rich hold their private money, whether real property or legal structures. Eg. Cayman islands
Only a very small percentage of people are going to up and move as tyranny enters into power. Most will hold strong where they are, where their families are. Look at history, most will try to hold through.
