Gold Jewelry’s Real Advantage: Wearable, Transportable Wealth
I vividly remember the first gold coin I ever bought.A one-ounce American gold Eagle. When I first opened the package, I was instantly struck by its beauty, shine, and refinement. And I loved the weight of it in my hand. I must’ve looked at it a hundred times over the next several days.What I did next, though, is telling: I stuck it in a safe. And there it sat, in the dark and out of sight.It was, well, anticlimactic. I loved the coin, but I couldn’t do much with it… couldn’t show it off, couldn

The Secret of Wealth Preservation - Jeff Nielson
We have a failure to communicate. The vast majority of the investment public in the Western world has no understanding – at all – about how to preserve and protect their wealth. Of the minority of the investment community with some understanding of wealth preservation, almost invariably it is a flawed understanding.

If I had to boil it down to a handful of insights, they would be these: (1) each human being, to use John Locke’s formulation, “has a property in his own
