  How Much Gold Should Someone Own Where and How To Own It 
Periodically I receive questions on gold ownership. How much should one own, and where? Let's start with the first question: How Much Gold Should Someone Own? There is no fixed answer, but rather a general methodology that I like: Do not invest outside your comfort zone. Think in terms of percentages, not fixed amounts. For some, 10% is too much, for others 30% is too little. Some do not trust anything else and are willing to hold a huge percentage of their assets in gold  If a 30% decline

  Inside the New York Fed’s Gold Vault 
National Geographic goes to 33 Liberty Street in New York City to visit the Federal Reserve’s gold vault, home to about one-quarter of the world’s gold. Beginning at about the 3 minute mark, you get to see what one tonne of gold looks like, another reminder of just how dense the metal is. About half-way through this segment, they visit the New York gold district and then they begin a discussion of the current monetary system with this: All that money used to be backed by gold, but not any more

The Nonexistent 'Social Costs' of a Gold Standard System
One of the odd notions that has come down through the years is that a gold standard system has “social costs.” It does not. It creates a profit. Of course, it does take effort to dig gold out of the ground. However, gold production never ceased after the end of the world gold standard in 1971. Roughly half of all the gold ever mined, in all of history, has been mined after 1971. Annual production today is the highest in history, and about double what it was in 1970. People seem happy to continu

  Gold Silver Confiscation: Can the Government Seize Assets
One concern of retail precious metals investors is the possibility of a gold confiscation.Imagine having the forethought to buy gold to shield your finances from an economic or monetary crisis—only to have it taken away from you by your government.

Why Own Gold The Top 10 Reasons to Buy Gold Now
Is gold a good investment? Why should you own it?It’s natural and even prudent for an investor to wonder if a particular asset is a good investment or not. That’s especially true for gold, since it’s an inert metal and doesn’t earn any interest.But the reasons for owning physical gold go beyond the possibility of its price rising. Gold bullion offers distinct advantages that simply can’t be found in almost any other investment. These advantages give you power as an investor. And yes, one of thes

How to Store Silver at Home 
Now that you’ve decided to buy silver, it's time to think about properly storing and protecting it. It is often said that silver bullion has no counter-party risk, and in a monetary sense, this is indeed true.   Although silver bullion requires no counter-party to sustain its value, there is and always remains the very real threat of theft. With the threat of burglary in mind, there are two

  The Myth of the Gold Supply Deficit 
Analyses based on annual supply and demand of gold appear on a daily basis, whether posted to gold web sites or in the financial media, many of them by the most respected analysts of gold mining shares. These articles typically show an imbalance between supply and demand, suggesting that there is a gold supply deficit. From there, the conclusion follows that a much higher gold price is required in order to bring supply and demand into balance.

  Fielding my grandson’s questions about gold and banking
My grandson had quite a day at school.He had learned that the economy had been suffering from things called Panics, capital P, during the 19th century and had another big one in the early 20th century.He had been told that responsible, public-spirited men like J. P. Morgan had organized a central bank to prevent those Panics.He and other bankers finally got the government to go along with their idea and pass it into law in late 1913.And wouldn’t you know it — we’ve had no more Panics since then.

Nazi Gold: The Merkers Mine Treasure, How the US Army Stiffed the Soviets
“ Patton told Bernstein that he was very glad Eisenhower was taking responsibility for the gold. Bernstein told him that he wanted to move the Merkers treasure to Frankfurt as quickly as possible and that under the Big Three arrangements at Yalta, the Merkers part of Germany would be taken over by the Russians after the war and that they certainly needed to get the treasure out of the area before the Russians got there.” I’m intrigued what the Russian feelings might have been(are).

The fiat money quantity (FMQ) 
Summary : This paper seeks to establish a measure of currency quantity that helps economists identify and estimate the risk that confidence in fiat currencies might be significantly eroded or even vanish altogether. It is this phenomenon that was referred to in the great European currency inflations of the 1920s as Katastrophenhausse, or a crack-up boom, when ordinary people lose all confidence in a fiat currency, disposing of it as rapidly as possible instead preferring ownership of goods.This is
