I’m going to maintain a tiny p.c of my belongings in it and that’s it. It has not stood the take a look at of time, for example, the best way gold has.”

Jones additionally mentioned Monday that the economic system could be in a “Second Melancholy” if the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t get contained in a 12 months.
