Why Buy Gold

Why Buy Gold and Invest in Precious Metals

What Makes Precious Metals Valuable?

In thousands of years of recorded history Gold and Silver have been documented to protect one’s wealth, and since has never failed to do so. In spite of this, many people still ask why we still use precious metals for anything related to finance or commerce. For the perplexed, what may be missing in context is not the historical use of precious metals, but why we utilized precious metals as a medium of exchange and store of value in the first place.

What separates precious metals from other commodities historically used for those purposes happens to be the inherent properties exhibited by gold and silver: they are scarce, durable, fungible, divisible, portable, easily storable, and probably most importantly, irreplicable. These unique features they possess make them the perfect assets as both mediums of exchange and stores of value, bringing human economic development to new heights beyond the simple barter of consumer goods. Here is an article about items you can sell that amount to that, too.

Why Invest in Precious Metals Now?

Gold has became the best-preforming asset since President Gerald Ford wrote an executive order allowing every American to purchase gold once again in 1974. Those who remain skeptical may point to the fact that the U.S. and the vast majority of nations across the world use fiat currency instead of currency backed by precious metals. However, it is easily demonstrable that this widespread adoption of paper currencies not backed by anything and subject to inflation has led to the extremely volatile economic climate in which we live and struggle today. Central banks all over the world are printing money like there is no tomorrow, and this artificial increase in the money supply logically leads to the devaluation of fiat currencies.

 

This results in consumer price hikes as well as the misallocation of resources, causing devastating economic effects that can ultimately lead to societal collapse. This is why it is imperative that those who wish to prepare for the inevitable decline in the value of the dollar and preserve their wealth should take the rational next step and begin investing in gold and silver.
