Doing Nothing Is Something

It's a common refrain in times of crisis. We must do something. But inaction is, in fact, always an option. Many times, especially when it comes to finances, it is a great option! Jesse reminds us that, in light of current economic conditions, it's perfectly OK to do nothing.

Jesse examines how the recent panic buying of food, home goods, and other staples highlights the intrinsic value of certain things that we take for granted. When demand for historically safe assets like bonds and gold falls, yetdemand for household goods like flour and toilet paper soar, it shines some light on the practical value of things. In short, you can eat flour, but you can't eat a bar of gold!
