Mindset.

Those guys and gals don't have it.  They are playing. 

That makes them a source of high end supplies and some great trading material. 

And if they have flunkies that are for real, why do they think that they will stay flunkies afterwards?

i was looking at that yokel's camouflage clothing in the article.

brand new. that, and a billy goat beard is a big tip off - anyone who wears an extra handle on their face has never faced someone like me. i bet he'd be screaming at me while i walked up to shake his hand.

The super rich I've dealt with often spend very little time on their boats or in their holiday houses (or bunkers) it's the staff who are there all the time. Wink

It's funny because their culture didn't use to be that way. Some would spend a month in a fish camp.

How do the super rich plan to pay everyone if there is a meltdown?

We have fiat currency, it's valuable because everybody agrees that it is valuable.

If everything stops working, say due to a financial collapse, just how valuable is that currency now?  Remember Germany after WW1, when it was cheaper to burn currency than wood?  Or Zimbabwe now, where they just stopped making money because they were up to 10 million for a loaf of bread?

Just how loyal do you suppose the flunkies would be if they get told they won't get paid and have to scrounge for themselves and their families while serving regular meals to the super rich? 

These guys expect loyalty upwards, they have to do some loyalty downwards for a while before they really get it.
