Former Presidential Candidate Ron Paul to Present Keynote Speech in New York
Former Republican presidential candidate and libertarian Dr. Ron Paul is a keynote speaker at the New York Metals & Minerals Investment Conference on May 13, 2013 in New York City.
As a serious investor in gold and silver mining stock himself, it should come as no surprise that approximately 64% of Paul’s personal portfolio is made up of natural resources stocks. In a recent Wall Street Journal article looking at a 2010 “Form A” financial disclosure statement filed by the congressman, values Paul’s personal portfolio between $2.44 and $5.46 million. While some may call Paul’s investment portfolio risky, others call it successful.
Paul has a consistent record, having warned of hyperinflation as far back as 1981. He believes the long-term decrease of the U.S. dollar’s purchasing power by inflation is attributable to its lack of any commodity backing and advocates eliminating legal tender laws and removing the sales tax on gold and silver, so that the market may freely decide what type of monetary standard(s) there shall be.
