Precious Metals are Real Money
Fiat currencies (currency without physical backing) are inflated until they are as worthless as the paper on which they are printed. Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve said, “All fiat currencies must find their way to gold”. Precious metals are assets and therefore cannot become an inherited government liability as notes of promise to pay. Inflation is often a consequence of the use of paper money systems that are not redeemable in real assets such as gold and silver. The illusion of wealth is what fiat dollars represent while the real value of gold remains.
One ounce of gold, worth approximately $20 in 1920’s, could buy a man a fine dress suit and a night on the town. An ounce of gold will still purchase the same today, where as a $20 bill would not even be enough to pay for the suit’s alterations.
Precious Metals have Universal Value
Mankind has always recognized gold and silver as real wealth. Though gold and silver have always been treasured for their decorative value, precious metals have been used pragmatically in the form of weapons, semi-conductors, and much more.
Gold and Silver are Liquid Assets
The liquidity of an asset is determined by the amount of time it takes to be converted to currency or other assets. Precious metal investments have the ability of being sold for virtually any other form of currency without the delays associated with other hard assets. As an example, you may find it takes a lengthy period of time to sell a real estate property, but precious metals can be liquidated virtually anywhere at any time. Not only is your investment always liquid but it is also divisible and maintains a transparent universal value.
Precious Metals are Wealth Insurance
When you diversify your portfolio into precious metals, you are protecting and insuring the present and future buying power of your hard earned money. Just as you would not consider driving a car without auto insurance, it is extremely unwise to not have saving and investment money “insurance”.
As a nation we have been hurt financially by our national use of non-gold backed paper money since 1971. In addition, unlimited paper dollar printing and excessive government spending have further impacted the issue.
Precious Metals Increase in Price as the Dollar is Devalued
When the dollar weakens, gold rises. If you believe the dollar will continue to be devalued, then hedge against paper backed assets and buy precious metals that you can hold in your hand.
National Debt vs. the Price of Gold
There is a direct correlation between the U.S. national debt and the price of gold. As the national debt rises – so does the price of gold. If you believe the national debt will continue to increase, then protect yourself by investing in precious metals.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
