    Because that's the bastion of stability. Right.

    Government is coming for your nest egg next, think tank warns

    So what options do you have for getting money out of an RA, for example? I'll be asking Allan Gray that question as well but until then I'd be keen to hear you lot's input.

    How much you need to earn each month to be in the richest 1% in South Africa

    Still in the top 1% and as per the previous thread with such a tool, it still depresses me, as I don't consider my household as particularly highly earning. We're not living in a mansion and driving sports cars. Not at all.

    Which laptop brand do you currently use?

    Dell XPS 13. It was the best ultralight I could find in SA. Would have preferred the Razer Blade Stealth but with their relatively poor reliability I couldn't handle not having local support.

    Push comes to shove, you can always go buy an expensive watch somewhere and take it on a plane. Or there's always Bitcoin.

    Foreigners dumping R2bn a day in SA bonds as junk status looms

    Nope, not right now. Got another R200k out right before the currency went tits up. I'll have to wait for the currency to strengthen before I take more out. Worst case, if the currency never recovers, I have enough abroad to start a new life with. If the currency stays at the level it is...

    Foreigners dumping R2bn a day in SA bonds as junk status looms

    I've stopped the last of my regular local investments this month. Money is going out of country as it makes sense in terms of exchange rate. It's simply way safer to not have all your eggs in one basket, or even where the government can get hold of it.
