How to "get out of dollar denominated assets"?

I have heard Peter Schiff use the phrase "get out of dollar denominated assets" many times during his interviews. This may be a dumb question, but how does one actually do that? For example, if I use an American brokerage to buy a mutual fund that invests in foreign companies, is that getting out of the dollar? The fund still shows up in my account in dollars.

Obviously, there is gold & silver. But I'm asking specifically about how to invest in companies abroad. Does one open a foreign bank account and then buy the stocks or funds from that foreign bank account? Thanks, DP, for you help.

just guessing, but perhaps it means assets that can be used

that are not "dollars" for example:

-- food storage
-- other items that can be sold or traded for other items of value
(ie alcohol, cigarettes, t.p., electric generators, guns, etc)
-- of course gold , silver, gemstones, btc.


Not sure if this is what it means, but if I had to guess , this would be it.

Great question I`ll be looking for someone to answer myself.


It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.
