  • Gold Vs Bonds | Another Look

    by Nick Barisheff

    Bonds have been in the headlines lately, thanks to the Eurozone (Greece in particular), but also certain US municipalities and Puerto Rico.

    Most investors believe strongly that bonds are a safe investment, while gold is risky. Contrary to popular opinion, gold offers vastly superior wealth protection.

    Unlike bonds, gold is an asset class that has a negative correlation to financial assets, thus providing the greatest diversification, as well as protection from inflation and currency crises.

    This is important, because all major currencies have declined when valued in gold since the gold standard was abandoned in 1971. Recent policies of quantitative easing and bailout packages have resulted in currency printing that has flooded the economy with dollars, driving the money supply to unparalleled levels and opening the door to inflation.

    Governments are attempting to keep interest rates artificially low by having new currency issued and purchasing bonds with it, but with interest rates are record lows, increasing the money supply with only encourage inflation.

    Gold performs well during periods of inflation. Bonds are severely hurt by inflation, which wipes out the purchasing power of the principal balance as well as the purchasing power of the bond yield.

    Given the current economic climate and the fiscally irresponsible policies, including competitive currency devaluation that governments in the US and indeed around the world are implementing, it is no wonder that investors are desperately seeking ways to protect their wealth.

    Moving from equities into bonds, however, is like jumping from the frying pan into the fire. The smart move for wealth preservation is holding physical gold bullion.
