Hi. I found this a very interesting topic to be pondered about. However, there is something that tingles my brain when reading it thoroughly.
Regarding vintage guitar or fine wine as investment in case of emergency. I don’t think it is wise enough since the monetary amount for those stuffs are attached to how people ‘value’ those things, and in critical situations where people lose their wealth easily, they will focus more on the essentials, the truly valuable things, hence the ‘value’ of vintage materials are prone to plummeting.
Just a bit of thought from me. Need further clarification to this matter. Regardless of that I enjoyed much the reading.
