HavaMega is 2000 miles away and my employer is putting everyone on a 4 day week. So....My gross income is down 20% but I'm still employed for now. Office Furniture just isn't selling with all the lay-offs at the banks, insurance companies and large "Blue Chip" companies. After 22 years I may be looking for a new job soon.

Who do you work for??? Steelcase???

I see that you have a TheMightyHobie18 w/ Magnum Wings ... me too ... Great Boat!!!

Is anyone keeping more cash around the house like I am or wondering when they make a deposit if they will see that money again?

I heard the other day the Treasury's 3 month (bills?) were paying 0% and people were still buying them. I remember reading that during the Depression people bought government notes at NEGATIVE interest and I thought THAT would never happen again. HA!

For the folks that have entered a response to Karls original question...... How long do you think you will be out? Can you survive in your occupation or will you need to find other work?

I live in a HUGE tourism state and I think this will be ugly for at least 2 years.

I think The City of London will be a nightmare for at least the next 12 months; they are just not hiring in my salary range at present.

I am expecting not to find "proper" work for at least another 12 months; maybe something will come along; I think the UK is in big crap for at least 2-4 years, but some of the banks will start re-hiring when they can get SOME finance and start some speculative trading again.

Gold, gold, gold. But be sure to pick up the coins and know they are real and yours. Do not trust any agency to hold them for you.

Am I paranoid or what?...that doesn't mean they won't wrought us when it comes to the pinch.

Bet the manufacturers of safes are having a bumper year.

Pre-1933 coins? Non-confiscate-able ???

South Africa still makes Krugerrands.

But you can buy Canadian Maple Leafs:

(known for their high purity)
and even American Eagles / Buffalos:

I've got a handful of pre-1933 double eagles that my grandfather squirreled away:

The St. Gauldens dougle eagle is one of the most beautiful coins ever made.

Harry, I work for Haworth but all of the big players (except Hon) are within 30 miles of where I live. Haworth is listed as number 3 behind Steelcase and Herman Miller, Haworth is still privately held. I talked with the founders son for a few minutes and he looked to be under a lot of stress. It will be several rough years for the industry. Usually they are last to go into a recession, last to come out.

Matt, some beatiful coins. I may look into buying some coins but I first need to pay the bank for the house. Hope to see you at Austin Lake this year.

I would venture a guess that firearm manufacturers are having a brisk year with the rumors spreading about the incoming US administration. Perhaps the rumors were started BY the manufacturers to boost sales..

Anyone want to sell their rocket launcher, or medium range cruise missile? I'm sure they'd be great for "home defense"... "Get them before they're banned".... smile

I AGREE W' H1616. my wife is a realtor in South Florida. Her strategy is to continue putting cash into her marketing program as other realtors start to conserve. So far it is working, phone keeps ringing, closings keep happening. In the long run she will reap more benefits from being the dominant name in the area when the economy recovers.
