The Economic Argument For Long Term Gold Inflation

Right now the U.S. government is desperately trying to fight deflation (lower prices) and it has categorically stated that it will look to prevent this at any cost. The long and short of this is that more “paper money” becomes available while the amount of gold stays constant. Can you think what this means?

The same amount of gold costs more paper dollars (or “money”) to buy.

So as the amount of money being printed goes up – so gold prices strengthen. It’s expected that a significant amount of money will be printed over the next years, and you don’t need me to tell you what that means for where gold prices are heading.

Sadly, there are even more reasons why the current gold run could well be the start of a huge bull run. Traditionally, gold has always performed strongly during times of uncertainty. I say “sadly” because as the long running war on terrorism sees no end in sight the amount of paper money needed to pay for conflicts etc rises. This huge increase in paper money will only continue to peg up the gold prices.
