what are the alternatives?

Education. Fifty years ago, investment options were limited and all were costly. Today, there is seemingly a fund for every purpose. Are concerns your only return? Are you comfortable owning stocks that use child labor? Do you care who people have sex with? If so, there is a fund for people with similar beliefs. Want to profit off of peoples sins? There's a fund for that.
Peer to Peer lending has become a huge business. It gives solid, if not spectacular returns. Micro investing, property ownership/management, self employment.
I know a kid who went from being an unemployed former vape store manager to owning three vape stores with sales of about a half million a year, all because he literally invested his rent money in an auction.

Oh, how I yearn for the days gone by of having the Gold Standard.
