I’m in my seventh decade now, and never have I experienced so much change in so short a time. Never did I imagine that I would live through a time like this as a citizen of a Western ‘democracy’.
And yet the stock market hits record highs. Bitcoin and other crypto currencies are on a tear as individuals and institutions search for a store of value. Property prices continue upwards as people leave the cities for the countryside and new government stimulus programmes keep inflating the bubble.
Make no mistake, fortunes will be made and lost in this environment.
There will be big winners and tragic losers.
But the stakes are not just financial.
What good is all the money in the world if you can’t live where you want and how you want? I am fortunate enough to have homes in Britain, France and Montenegro but I have been trapped in the UK for months.
What hoops will I have to jump through before I am allowed to visit these homes again?
