Hold on to your piggy banks, guys! Financial vampires are coming to steal them as well.
First they came for our nest eggs. Then they came for our home equity. Now they are coming for that spare change on top of our dressers.
Be very afraid.
First they told us to be afraid of terrorists. Then they told us to be afraid of immigrants. Now they are telling us to be afraid of germs? But no one told us to be afraid of the deadly Wealth-Snatchers.
And while our attention is riveted on COVID, they are stealing our wealth from behind our backs—even down to that last penny jar in the closet.
We are at the tail end of the greatest wealth transfer in history right now—and none of that wealth is coming our way.
Sorry about that.
But at least we can yell “F*ck you!” to the burglars on their way out the door with our wallets.
