I am very big on looking an the character of countries when picking places to put savings and to take refuge in the event of USD hyperinflation. I just learned about a new ranking in Alan Greensapan’s book The Map and the Territory.
The top eleven by percentile ranking are:
New Zealand 99.5
The six countries whose currencies I recommend are in red. The others use the euro or the Singapore dollar, weiter of which has a good debt-to-GDP ratio.
The bottom ten by percentile ranking are:
Equatorial Guinea .5
North Korea 2.9
South Sudan 3.8
In case you are wondering where the U.S. ranks: 89.5
