"When you own gold," Rickards said, "you're fighting every central bank in the world" More ››

We continue to see articles by so called “experts” trashing Gold and Silver as investments. Gold is everything from a “Pet Rock” to a “Dumb Investment” or “Barbarous Relic.” Do these people even bother doing research? Or are they just stock shills? First and foremost, you cannot compare Gold's performance relative to stocks anywhere before 1967. Why? Because Gold was pegged to currencies up until that point. More ››
