Is Gold Safe?

Physical gold is considered by many to be the safest form of money and asset protection on the face of the planet. For more than 3,000 years, gold has proven to be the most successful currency ever to have existed. Gold has absolutely zero-counter party risk, with no institutions or boards of directors controlling the outcome of your investment. Statistically, global mining production for gold has peaked in the year 2000, and there is only a finite supply of this precious yellow metal in existence above ground.  It’s no wonder why investors around the world are flocking to precious metals during these turbulent times.

You might ask, what about the long-term value of the U.S. dollar? Since the year 1999, the dollar has fallen like a rock in terms of real purchasing power, and is continuing to get worse over time.  Apparently, we’re not the only ones worried about the future fate of the dollar… for the first time in over 25 years, the largest central banks around the world have become major net buyers of physical gold. In fact, many countries around the world are far ahead of the U.S. in acquiring physical gold and are even encouraging their citizens to own precious metals to help soften the impact of this global economic crisis. Our National Debt is at staggering and never before seen historical highs, and there are no signs of slowing down the operation of the government U.S. dollar printing presses anytime soon. Are you willing to let someone else dictate the outcome of your retirement dollars?
