hedge fund managers are buying up remote ranches and land in places like New Zealand to flee to in event of wide-spread civil unrest

uper rich hedge fund managers are buying 'secret boltholes' where they can hideout in the event of civil uprising against growing inequality, it has been claimed.

Nervous financiers from across the globe have begun purchasing landing strips, homes and land in areas such as New Zealand so they can flee should people rise up.

With growing inequality and riots such as those in London in 2011 and in Fergusonand other parts of the USA last year, many financial leaders fear they could become targets for public fury.

Robert Johnson, preside

Sorry Kay, I've only just seen your post. You are absolutely right about the wealthy buying places in NZ. We all know they're here. We have lots of Americans and plenty of Russian Oligarchs. There was a Russian mentioned in the newspaper yesterday who has bought a huge estate in the North Island. There are all sorts of celebrities who have places here. 

We are ideally placed for a world wide catastrophe. Put simply we are just more remote than any other western country on earth. Obviously you could head out to Samoa or Vanuatu but then you risk being swamped by the ocean. We are inaccessible and you really have to want to be here to go to the effort of getting here. 
If it is to be, it is up to me.
