Consider crypto

"U.S. National Debt Will Rise to 98% of GDP by 2030, CBO Projects"  https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-national-debt-will-rise-to-98-of-gdp-by-2030-cbo-projects-11580238089 

Most people today probably still think of cryptocurrency as funny money, or a speculative asset class.

But I believe we're going to see this perspective flip, probably starting with young people as with many things, where holding a government's currency is seen as funny money.

And crypto is seen as real money that people can't tamper with (at least control is decentralized and I can trust people to review the open source code).

Why put your livelihood into something that could be manipulated or devalued without your input.
