Keep your liquidity because after things crash, you can buy stuff up cheap. That's what happened in Russia after the Soviet Union went under. People were given shares of state owned property. They sold their shares cheap to buy food. The guys who bought their shares became billionaires. Same thing happened in Latin American countries that entered hyper-inflation. Houses here in the US were cheap during the Depression (1930s).
The trick is to get it out of USD since it's going to hyper-inflate. I'll leave that for you to figure out how to preserve the 1/4 mil.
It's funny to me, when people advise about how cheap things will be (using the deflationary great depression as an example) and then talk about devaluation of the US dollar and hyper-inflation, in the same story.
