Article: How Ron Paul is walloping the marketSubmitted by brandoj on Tue, 08/30/2011 - 01:21
Ron Paul is a medical doctor, a Republican congressman from Texas and a candidate to be the GOP’s standard-bearer in the 2012 election. He is also an investor, and apparently a very good one.
While Paul’s portfolio may lack diversification, he has had a focused buy-and-hold strategy over the past decade. The strategy has worked well for him, largely because gold has been the focus of his investments.
Congressman Paul has consistently warned that high inflation is coming on the back of the Federal Reserve’s loose monetary policy. Paul has asserted that this inflation could hurt the lower classes worst of all, because they will have few options to protect themselves from rising prices other than to put some of their savings in gold and silver.
