Since 2020 the Fed has printed ~33% of all dollars currently in existence.

Now look up how much money the Fed has printed since the 2008 financial crisis hit.

Money printing is not a new thing. The Fed has been printing for more than a decade.

I had a savings account in 2007 that paid 6% interest. Why 6%? Because the federal reserve prime rate was over 8%

Look where it went in 2008, and where it stayed for seven straight years.

I have an emergency fund where I stick money in a savings account and I'm half tempted to turn it all to physical platinum/gold. Fuck having liquidity if that money is as good as toilet paper

Precious metals are good, but only if there's going to be a functional economy at the end. A hungry person might trade water for gold, but will definitely trade it for a can of soup. Just saying, diversify and cover your bases.
