    U.S. companies are scaling back investment plans at the fastest pace since the recession, signaling more trouble for the economic recovery.

    Coulda told you that. I was waiting till after the election to decide what to do with my investment money. It isn't going to be spent quite the same way now. Part of it is going into gold.

    I'm rather pleased with my investments in land. Nothing is without risk but I don't have to watch markets every day, wonder if the institution will remain solvent or question how the next round of legislation will slaughter my net worth. Besides, if everything crumbles I can still go plant food on every single parcel I own and eat!

    It's not the answer for everyone but it's an affordable alternative to today's typical market vehicles. Besides, it's priced to buy right now!

    Really, even legislation that says you can't own land doesn't worry you? The institution remaining solvent is required for your land investment to stay solvent. If everything crumbles, how do you really own that land?

    Until the constitution completely fails, I have the right to private ownership of property. Banks are the institutions that are in jeopardy of not remaining solvent. I buy my land with cash and own all my properties fee-simple with valid deeds demonstrating ownership. In between those four corner pins are property I personally own. Not some government entity and not some institution. Me, the holder of the deeds. That's how I really own that land.

    I've been selling land for a living for over thirty-five years and I actually know a thing or two about property rights and ownership.

    Our last sale of investment property netted us a 200% return on our investment. I wouldn't sell any of the other parcels we currently hold for a return that is less than that in today's markets either. Now, did I miss your point or address your concerns.

    You really think or constitution will stand when the banks collapse? Because you are in Arizona I think you'll be alright and they will maintain that ownership even when that happens. But if you were in Cali or somewhere else, I think you should be just as worried as someone in stocks.

    This is pretty deep.

    If some clown who promised to uphold the constitution decides he wants to upend it in favor of some other entity, he gets the same treatment I would give any traitor. Yes, some of us will promote any means to protect what we believe is ours to protect. This is nothing new.

    Are you planning on running for the hills? We don't have alot of hills around here. I see no point in running.

    I just bought 160 acres last Friday. I actually had to pay about 15% higher than any land has ever sold for in our area, but it is also the highest assessed land in the R.M. (similar to a county in the US). Our economy is actually booming here, so there are no bargains on real estate. Houses in the city are horrendously overpriced. A run down 750 sq ft house built in 1945, underneath the freeway is worth about $300,000 in Saskatoon now, and our dollar is par with a USD now. I'll be quitting my engineering job with Fiat, and farming full-time starting next spring.

    When the stock market fails or a company folds, you are left holding the paper certificates.
    When the real estate market takes a complete dump, I hold not only the paper deed but I can walk to all four corners of the parcels I own and I will always be able to do that. Nobody will have rights to take that away without a complete revolution in this country and such a revolution will see the military and law enforcement stand clearly on the side of the constitution that they took an oath to uphold. In other words, they've already promised to protect me and my rights.

    One thing about land, they aren't making any more of it. The acreage I bought 6 years ago is worth 5 times what I paid for it. I am looking at more.

    Tell this to the thousands and thousands of previous land owners who lost their land and property due to "Eminent domain"....

    It would be wise to NEVER underestimate the ruthless, over reaching, and abusive powers of our Government and current POTUS.

    Granted, I agree land is a good investment, but "they" will have to pry the gold out of my dead fingers or crawl over my body to access my safe. And once it all collapses and the majority of the people are left holding WORTHLESS PAPER MONEY, who will purchase your land and for what possible purpose? Can you easily "break off" a piece of land to trade for some bread? If so, at what value or worth?..... I would diversify to say the least, with emphasis on GOLD! In addition, land's portability factor is ZERO!
