Investors that have never owned gold are asking the question "why invest in gold?" and the answers are within your childhood dreams. When you dreamed of gold as a child it was not for investment purposes, it was because you felt that things would be all right if you had some; you would be safe.
I'm sure at that time you didn't realize that the big bad wolf was retirement account shortfalls, trillions of dollars in government bailouts, Medicare and Social Security collapsing, or living in a society that thought more credit was the only way to survive. Well the reality is that your childhood dreams have arrived and restoring that dream of gold in your vault may bring peace of mind again.
We have listed three of the main reasons you may want to have some grown-up concerns about the economy which may lead you to want to invest in gold:
Banks don't have any of your money. The reason our government has spent 8.5 trillion dollars in 2008 bailing them out is not because they're feeling generous, its due to the fact that the FDIC couldn't dent the shortfalls and the house of cards would come crashing down if a major bank collapsed.
Like the banking institutions, the United States Government has built its own house of cards with State & Federal deficits including current retirement pension funding (Medicare & Social Security) shortfalls exceed 100 times our GDP. The interest alone stands at over 5 times our GDP, or everything we produce in five years. This is not a percentage that any government can overcome and points a direct path to default.
The most important reason to invest in gold is because you have heard that the entire world has a liquidity problem coupled with a credit crisis. Think about your own life and if you had a lot of debt but no money to pay the debt. Your only option was to borrow more in spite of the fact that your income was reducing (bad economy = lower tax revenue). You would eventually default and if that were to happen on a national or international scale, it could be some time before you were able to produce goods and services for yourself or your loved ones.
