March 20, 2012 – All the bright headlines about the stock market are very much welcomed, but they do not accurately reflect on gold and silver investing. Several economic reports have indicated a relative strengthening in the economy over the past three months. Though little growth can be realistically presented, the drastic measures taken over the past five years have apparently managed to finally slow the decline to a standstill.

Even the much-touted jobs report that came out recently does not accurately reflect the growth model we employ. Though 200,000 were added, it mainly indicates a sideways market. Because of the birth-death model, in which so many people are entering the market for jobs and so many are exiting each month, the US would have to generate 200,000 jobs a month just to keep up with population growth.

Most markets are inflated in a similar way, though there are slight variations depending on the market. One of the reasons gold and silver investing is so popular is the current model of reliance on paper to prop up outdated market models. If everyone knew that we need to generate 200,000 jobs a month to keep up with growth, they would no longer consider a 200,000 person increase on employer payrolls as a major step toward a healthy and vital economy and the market would suffer.

Gold and silver remain the best real methods of investment we have in our society, as they have been for millennia. They store value and are priced relative to their scarcity of availability above ground on the planet. The amount of gold and silver available for sale are relatively constant and cannot be manipulated so easily as printing many sheets of paper.

While the world contends with over-inflated paper markets in which fundamentals are continually skewed to prop up the health of the markets, gold and silver provide a strong counterpoint. They are tangible goods and real stores of value that have been used and respected for thousands of years. The most trustworthy instruments in this market are probably also those with the longest traditions behind them. Gold and silver investing will continue as the best way to store, transfer, and grow value.
