    On a financial note, when would be a good time to withdrawal most of ones savings from the bank (e.g. put under the mattress"), totally serious.

    If the economic stress eventually takes a toll on banks and they decide to halt/suspend certain transactions, well you get the picture

    Of course it is. You start by developing a plan in advance. The USA has been rehearsing for wars (including nuclear) for decades. They call them military exercises or war games.

    I put my 401k in a stable plan some time ago. Yesterday, I put a chunk back into my preferred market stock. Everyone has to figure the future out based on their gut IMO.

    Not touching my 401, but just talking liquid, cash. Hard to say at this point how the heck this will turn out, but man the thought of "that" scenario - that's all she wrote and would be utter chaos. I honestly don't want to think of that scenario playing out. But.....

    I'm no expert on finances to say the least. But, I don't see a need of hording cash. Banks are insured by the government. I'm more interested in where I am after this mess passes. We will get through this. And the old saying of buy low and sell high still applies.

    I hope you were smart and walked away. You can buy cookies in many places without waiting in line.
