Economic Security Through Precious Metals

I was reading some of the works of Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki about the current economic crisis that started at the terminus of the George W. Bush administration and has continued through the first half of Barack Obama’s historic presidential administration. The great fear, expressed by those two financial experts, is the possibility of losing the American middle class. While the rich will always be rich and the poor will presumably stay poor, there is something to be said about the status of the middle class as the backbone of the American economy.

As people have seen their 401K investments vanish… their houses lose value to the point where their mortgages are more than the value of the property… the questions on the minds of a lot of very sagacious people probably include (but are certainly not limited to) the following:

  • What can I invest my hard earned money in that will not lose value?
    .
  • Where can I find security for myself and my children in the coming years?

Gold would seem the obvious answer. After all… there are tons of it stored to back up the federal government and major financial institutions. But, have you also considered the Price of Platinum? We read in the San Francisco Chronicle that, along with gains in the price of gold, the price of platinum has also been advancing – a record 18 percent gain in this year alone.

Wow!

Given the gains in the value of platinum as an investment alternative, there are two avenues that the wise investor may wish to keep in mind when planning his or her economic strategy. Are you ready? Okay… the first is platinum coins:

Where can you find details about spreading your investing wings into the direction of the most rare precious metal on earth? In addition to the previous link, you may also wish to visit The United States Mint.

The second area of consideration for securing your economic future is in considering the Gold IRA. Yes, you can actually place gold into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and see your retirement wealth rise with the security of an investment in gold.

Hopefully these strategies will be useful to you in planning your economic future. The following video should also provide some great information for you.
