Wow thats absolutely fuking terrible!

To be honest i took my savings out of the bank a long time ago, i might move it to a credit union. I dont deposit a lot of money in the bank. In and out asap.

If we were to have a collapse, the banks could hold on to my money. LEGALLY. So its best to keep some on deck if you can safely.

Bottom line though most Americans not having 1k to their name is kinda dangerous. And it also means that most Americans are living pay check to pay check. If something were to happen like an emergency idk, transmission failure, boiler broken the avg American is going to put it on a credit card. And we wonder why n*ggas are in so much debt.

I dont have any outstanding debt or serious lines of credit. Learned my lesson when i was 19... SMH took me forever to pay for 3k worth of junk i bought. I was charging everything man. FUK YOU CAPITAL ONE!
Capital one is some dirty people man

Hate to burst your bubble man, but honestly if it came to that point, you're going to need something other than cash all together. Something that's actually worth something, like Gold, Diamonds, knowing a trade etc etc, and being able to barter those items for services.

The value of our dollar will continue to fall, and whether you physically have the money in your hand or in a bank will not matter.
what are you supposed to do with gold and diamonds when the "end" comes? that sh*t's only valuable because some people got together and decided it was. they can be k!lled just like cash

Part of the 34% and I'm not in any debt, thank God. I do owe IRS tax money, but I'm paying that off at a good rate.

Most of my money is on Paypal though, I dunno if that's better than a bank, but I don't trust my bank too much.

This country is all kinds of f-cked.

If you got less than 1k in a.ssets in the bank and you're living from paycheck to paycheck, think of it this way

You're only on car transmission failure, serious illness, or emergency away from being homeless..

This world is crazy like that..

Saving $50 from every paycheck goes a long way in the grand scheme of things over time. That's $100 a month $1,200 a year that you aint even feel while saving it.
