No. of Recommendations: 2

The only caution I would recommend is if/when the Governments print money that gets out into the public, the velocity of money may then speed up and thus inflation may be greater than your return on CDs, thus it may become a similar situation to what happened to the folks who retired in the mid-1960s and then went through the insanity of purchasing power degradation during their "golden years".

This is all conjecture and may not have merit or come to pass in which case the thought experiment creates no harm, however few buy hazard insurance believing they'll actually need it...

So, if the sequence of events mentioned in the first paragraph unfolds, do you have a plan for dealing with it? If not, think about it, you have time, but I don't have a crystal ball to predict how much....
