Doug Casey was a friend of Harry's and he has a great YouTube Channel with Michael Smith that would be of interest to many subscribers here. Doug opines on the LTT component of the PP here on Youtube:

Doug Casey's Take (ep. #41) Friday AMA:
Ayahuasca, Most Exotic Country, Buying Property...

The bit about LTT & just replacing the LTT component of the PP with T Bills is in the first 6:00 of the VLOG.

I believe Doug was also an advisor to the Permanent Portfolio fund when it was formed back in 82

Yeah, so I was constrained for time. He also elaborates more towards the end of the VLOG as well, but it is pretty much a reiteration.
My motive was just to get it out there for informational purposes for those that might be interested.

Guys like Casey are in short supply & might not be around for much longer, so I always try to catch Doug anytime he speaks. Personally, I'm sticking with LTT & a PP. But, Doug Casey AND pmward >:D are probably right about the avoidance of LTT and the substitution of STT instead.

Personally, I think switching from LTTs is a no-brainer, but each to his own.

Switch to what? Reasonable people could differ here.

Didn’t Casey in the same interview say we could turn into Japan? If so, wouldn’t I want to own LTTs ahead of time?

It was an interesting video, I'll have to watch more with him. A lot of the articles on his website are good reads as well. I saw that he also recommended selling all your bonds back in 2016.

That a Japanese investor would have done well to have held LT government bonds earning 1.6%

This is getting silly. Current S & P dividend is 1.80%.

Casey recommends T-bills as a substitute for LTT’s and I’m sure Browne would agree if he were still alive.

Casey is just verifying what many others have said here. The principles behind the PP are permanent. The PP itself is an artifact of particular times, interest rates, market conditions and limited investment options that no longer exist.
