But Peter’s article really shows the facts.
Sometimes I wonder if I should cash out my IRA (or a portion of it) and pay off the house….which is really the only thing appreciating in value in my current portfolio.
Stocks and bonds are flat, or at best barely keeping up with inflation.
Ditto my IRA money. Not making huge gains so compounding of small interest isn’t resulting in real gains….
I think that my guns and ammo will be worth more very soon, but I’ll likely not be willing to sell at any price……
Same with prepped foods and other supplies for when things get pear shaped….
Alternatively, Maybe I should go as deep in debt as my cash flow allows….and pay off today’s dollar amount loans in a few years with dollars that are worth significantly less…
