23.6% of all US dollars were created in the last year. This is a recipe for an economic collapse. You are losing the value of your money at a higher rate than you ever have before. So, what’s the solution?
This affects everyone regardless if you live in the US or not. The only way to counteract this is your fiat currency into something that is appreciating in value or at least not losing value.
This is one article that looks at US money supply over the last year: https://www.thestreet.com/mishtalk/economics/23-6-of-all-us-dollars-were-created-in-the-last-year

Consider this. You work for 40 hours a week for $1000. Then when you get your paycheck, you see that you only received $764. You question what happened, but you are told this is how it has to be. You look at other jobs and realize that this has happened to everyone. You are given a raise of 5% for all your hard work and yet somehow you are still only making 81.40% of what you were supposed to earn. This isn’t even taking into account taxes, but this is one way to visualize what’s happening to your income, wealth, and everything you own due to hyperinflation. This hasn’t been fully realized yet, but about 10% has. This will continue to get worse and the only defense is investing in assets. The problem is we can’t see it in this context, and this is only one year… this will continue. You end up fighting a zero-sum game of trying to beat inflation.

Whether you decide to invest in real estate, gold, bitcoin, stocks or otherwise. You need to action into securing your finance before it’s too late. Now I will say that the stock market may also collapse with the economy, but gold and bitcoin are solid assets. Real estate may be volatile too, but it will always have value.
