  1. I'm not talking the obvious short the market.

    There's got to be better ways.

    I had the similar question in 2007 about what to do about a possible housing bust. It was only til things were totally crashing did I find out better ways I could have positioned myself for that event.

    So, what are good ways to position oneself to maximize potential profits if a ratings downgrade of the USA occurs?
  2. Move to Canada
  3. anyone with good ideas?
  4. Buy t-bills... Or do the spread: sell munis, buy t-bills. Have to be careful with it, though.
