Precious metals

Precious metals — particularly gold and silver — have been a popular hedge against inflation and uncertainty. They can’t be printed out of thin air like fiat money and their value is largely unaffected by economic events around the world.

Even though the Fed has raised interest rates aggressively to tame inflation, Kiyosaki doesn’t see price levels cooling down anytime soon.

“The thing I see is that the Fed and the FDIC are signaling hyperinflation, which makes gold and silver even better because this thing here is trash,” he tells Fox Business while holding up a $1 bill. “They are going to print more and more of this fake money.”

Gold has long been the go-to choice for investors looking for a hedge in times of crisis. But this time, Kiyosaki likes silver because of a particular use of the gray metal.

“I think this is the best investment of all — silver. Because every Tomahawk missile has 30 pounds of silver in it,” he explains. “Every time they push that missile button, 30 pounds of silver disappears.”

While there are many ways to gain exposure to gold and silver, Kiyosaki prefers to just buy the metal directly. Last year, he tweeted that he only wants “real gold or silver coins” and not ETFs.

So it might be time to visit your local bullion shop.

Bitcoin

Some consider bitcoin as the new gold. While Kiyosaki likes the good old yellow metal, he sees opportunity in the cryptocurrency as well.

In the tweet where Kiyosaki warns that the crisis is just starting, he also says “Buy more G, S, BC” — referring to gold, silver and bitcoin.

Of course, many bitcoin investors learned the hard way just how volatile it can be.

Despite being the largest cryptocurrency in the world, bitcoin lost over 60% of its value in 2022.

But it’s making a comeback, surging 64% in 2023.

These days, it’s very easy to tap into bitcoin: you can buy bitcoin directly. Just be aware that many exchanges charge up to 4% in commission fees just to buy and sell crypto. So look for investing apps that charge low or even zero commissions.
