Savings and Investments


Are all government bonds safe?

No, in fact some foreign government bonds may not be safe investments at all, as the debt of those countries can cause economic collapse. So one must consider the region and the country before investing in foreign government bonds.

Municipal bonds are used by cities and local governments to make local improvements, such as water towers or sewer systems. They are not glamorous investments, but they are generally safe ones.
