The tech and Wall Street "know it alls" will mock him


A techie is storing gold to keep his business and running against the realistic fear of a prolonged bank holiday.

If I were advising him, I'd recommend cash in hand too.

Cash is always spendable. There have even been cases history where the paper currency of a collapsed government was still used as a medium exchange because there was nothing else handy.

Gold for sure, but don't forget cash in hand.
