All that glitters is not gold.
Fear of inflation is rife. But a look at the history of money shows that fear is not a good advisor—but examining assets is. Because gathering valuable information and thinking about your own assets pays off.
Ever since the Corona crisis began along with payouts of financial aid on an unimagined scale, people have wondered where all that money comes from and who is ultimately going to pay the bill. Money and its value have a thriller-worthy history that includes serious crises, poverty and fabulous wealth, sudden stock market crashes, but also general prosperity and long-term stability. But those now relying on savings are going to lose out. Financial expert Thomas Mayer shows what we can expect in the future, good things included.
