A Certain Profit Situation

By (October 1, 2013) No Comment

 
Now the gold supply at Fort Knox has reached a critical
level, and something must be done.

This in itself tends to aggravate the dollar drain and bring
the moment of reckoning closer.

How can the individual protect himself against an
improvident government which has become caught in such
a financial tangle?

The simplest way to own gold is by buying stock in a
producing gold mine.

The ideal speculation is one in which the risk is small and
the possible profit large, and so no better speculation can
ever be found.

American citizens cannot own gold.

With that kind of potential profit, it is almost mandatory to
own at least a little gold, even if the change should be
delayed for some years.

This is a certain profit situation, and it will repeat itself
annually until the price of gold is finally raised.
