The one thing that nowadays does not lack in is uncertainty. It may be just me, but things seem to be so much more up in the air as to what will happen.
Any one of a thousand scenarios may unfold, all of which were prevented by the old rules of conduct amongst: nations, their leaders, and politicians.
Now we have a whole lot of people clamouring for change just for the sake of change and hoping it will be for the better.
We have the large and powerful nations looking to ever expand their power and influence over other nations: empire builders in the waiting.
We have groups of people wanting to break up nations and break down the bonds of cooperation that binds us together.
Am I the last person to understand that we as humans, as people are always better together?
How this comes down to me is that with the political uncertainty boiling up in the area of the country that I am in . . . how to I plan for my future, when all things in the future are uncertain?
If the country splits up, and I am left in a new fledgling nation, my first question is . . .
“What dollar are we using and does anyone seriously thing this new dollar will be worth the same as the Canadian Dollar is now? Or even close?”
For that matter, if the country splits up, what will happen to the value of the Canadian Dollar? (Hint: it will go into the toilet).
Even the rumblings of a serious possibility of the country breaking up causes the dollar of any country to take a nose dive (History is full of examples).
So, as I move forward, I am still left with an unsettling feeling of how to save and how to build for a drastically uncertain future?
This is a question I will have to answer, but I will push that off to the new year, as I have to rebuild my savings to minimum levels first.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
