The typical congressional

The typical congressional portfolio might have 10% in cash, 10% in bonds, 20% in real estate and 60% in stocks or stock funds, according to The Wall Street Journal.

But Paul has taken a radically different approach.

His 21% allocation to real estate looks pretty normal. So does his 14% allocation in cash. But where he parts ways with his congressional brethren is the remaining 64% of his portfolio, which is invested in gold- and silver-mining stocks. Adding to his contrarian style, his 1% allocation to stocks funds are invested in "short" funds, a bet against future stock gains.

Congress should be barred from stock investment, along with commercial banks. The conflict of interest is indisputably prone to corruption which has dire consequences for the WHOLE WORLD'S ECONOMY.
