Precious Metals and Cognitive DissonanceSubmitted by An Abandoned Re... on Fri, 01/11/2013 - 00:52
I was listening to a radio show this evening that was focused on gold and silver. It is a regular show (daily I think) and every time I listen to it I feel like I'm listening to an infomercial. They have good information, and they often play or quote Ron Paul, but the entire time they are trying to sell people their gold and silver.
So today my cognitive dissonance flag went up on it. I realized that if gold and silver are so great of an investment why are they trying to sell it for Federal Reserve Notes?
I am not at all saying at I think investing in precious metals is a bad thing. I would just like some input from the DP community on this subject. Maybe there is a simple answer I am missing.
