Entry Level
The Coronavirus pandemic has shown us how fragile humanity is in the face of natural disasters. It especially showed us how vulnerable our economy is. Most of us have been affected financially whether you’re a business owner, an employee, or a fresh graduate looking for a job. It seems that the only who has gained are the investors who used the crisis to their advantage. In this course, you will primarily learn about the safe investment options during a financial crisis. The course is dedicated to anyone who’s worried about their financial safety during a crisis regardless of their current wealth. You might think that investments are only for the rich, but it isn’t. They just have a higher level of tolerance towards risk, but with proper diversification and strategies, you can also start investing with minimal risks. If you’re looking to become rich quickly, then this course isn’t for you. If you’re looking to substantially increase your wealth, then this course isn’t for you either. If you’re looking to be in a better financial position when a financial crisis deepens, then this is the course you’re looking for. Our focus in this course revolves around safety and security. This course isn’t a classical investment course. It is a specific course talking about safe investments during financial crises. For that reason, we start with explaining the nature of financial crises: both the definition and causes. Then we get into debt cycles to show that financial crises happen organically in cyclical manner due to the nature of the economic system, and aren’t random coincidences. They are predictable to a certain degree. Afterwards, we elaborate on the mentality of safe investments: whether it is financial investment, or time investment. We highlight the importance of diversification. Then, we list the popular safe investment options during a financial crisis, which are precious metals, cash, farmland, and other things with use-value to people. Next, we discuss other riskier investment options if you have extra money on the side, and you’re seeking fast wins. Those options include defensive stocks, short-selling and crypto currencies. Last but not least, we suggest investment options for those with minimal or no financial resources. Such options are social in nature, and revolve around investing in yourself, investing in others, and aiming to become more sustainable and self-sufficient in the ever-changing technological era. Hope this course act as a blueprint that helps you navigate through any financial crisis.
