“As the economist Herbert Stein once put it, “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.” Or as I like to put it, false wealth only lasts until Atlas shrugs or collapses.
If you’re a forward-thinking, responsible person you must prepare for the elimination of false wealth.
Put together a spreadsheet of all the money you get from government sources. Then estimate how much of that money will likely go away once Atlas shrugs or collapses. Finally, determine if your current financial situation can handle the elimination of false wealth. If it can, great. If it can’t, adjust.”
