This is why I handle my own investments. Compare yield in gold to yield in stocks for the past 10 years. Gold made 10%-15% more than stocks and didn’t decrease in purchasing power. In the economic climate that we have now gold is safety and it makes wealth for the investor.

Nixon Shock had removed the Gold peg. The amount of paper money is no longer justifiable to the worth of real economic activities. We can’t abuse the system forever. One day it will collapse.
