Surviving on Shoestrings: Banking Collapse

Surviving on Shoestrings: Gold ChartMarch 25, 2014 – Hi! I’m Donna Miller, and today, I have with me, John & Monica Miller. They are a middle class couple, who were living in Hawaii, moved their savings & investments to NZ & Australia, in anticipation of probable U.S. dollar devaluation. Should we need to be preparing for a banking collapse? That’s likely.

Their books which can be found on their website (http://www.banking-holiday.com) were written to help other concerned Americans living in the US, to do the same, before the banking holiday happens.

Best Blessings & EnJOY the show,

Donna Miller
