    I do, but as part of a diversified investment portfolio. The dollar isn't going anywhere.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I used to. Bought gold right after 9/11. Saw that coming a mile away.

    No. And if I had excess cash...I still wouldn't. There are better, equally safe investments, IMO.

    only people with money usually buy gold for investment, some small investors are able to make money, but more often it is people with cash.

    gold should be used as a hedge against inflation, for economic downturns, security....gold has never been worthless in 5000 years......fiat currency has.

    I guess that would be true. Against the falling dollar. I bought 25 ounces of gold for $300 an ounce in 2001, right after 9/11. One of my better investments -- but I don't intend to sell it.

    One thing for sure, it won't go below what you paid for it.

    No, and I doubt I ever will.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
