Advice for Buying Gold?Submitted by aVoiceof Reason. on Sat, 03/21/2009 - 16:33
So after hearing the news that the FED is buying up trillions more in U.S. debt/printing trillions more, and increased spending in the trillions of dollars, inflation seems like it's just around the corner...
So, I want to be ready to the best of my ability.
I'm currently a student in college, so I'm not really looking to invest/protect any assets, since I don't have anything invested (other than my education). That said, I think it might be beneficial to buy some gold/gold coins to have on hand in the case of an inflation emergency....
First off, does that sound reasonable? If so, how much is advisable to have on hand? And lastly, where can you purchase such gold currency? What's a good deal for gold?
If you have any other advice, I'd appreciate it.
