This is unironically completely wrong. Not saying diversifying is a bad thing obv but it's IMPOSSIBLE to lose owning gold. Since you millenials don't understand that gold is actual real savings.

The dollar value of gold doesn't mean jack shit. Since the entire point in buying gold in the first place is because fiat is a scam and you buy it because you fear the dollar will implode. And that's when the massive transfer of wealth hits you.

you realize that newer generations no longer value gold as much as previous ones do? when gold ownership and valuation is centralized in countries like china or the middle east, it ceases being a good store of value.

bitcoin is rapidly stealing that mindshare that once belonged to gold, even if bitcoin is more volatile, and currently in a bear market, the people with serious money (who are not investing in gold, by the way) are looking at bitcoin as a more lucrative long term bet that gold could ever be.

Bro... nobody is saying we go back to transacting in silver dimes. But the currency has to have a basis of value.

You can have crypto but it needs to be backed. The issue is that the world is swimming in debt and prices are rising and cost of living is skyrocketing.
Crypto doesn't solve this issue. Gold and silver can with a simple gold revaluation

>> No.11952219

You don't understand what the primary function of money even is... which is to MEASURE VALUE of goods exchanged for it. Nothing does that better than gold.... even today with gold. Ring demonetized. Cryptocurrencies don't measure value. Gold does. That's why gold is real money whether or not govts say it's legal tender or not. A gold ounce today is a good weekly salary just like it was 100 years ago.

You are investing in crypto because of massive inflation and skyrocketing prices unironically because gold doesn't back the dollar anymore. Under a gold standard terms like "income inequality" didn't exist because prices were cheap and a min wage earner 55 years ago had twice the purchasing power as a min wage earner today

>the shitcoin market is so tiny and so easily manipulated
you think the gold market is not manipulated? wake the fuck up, they manipulate every market but often for different reasons, of course the end game is profit for them. Crypto is not different, however crypto has important traits that will become much more important in the future.

Really? A gold ounce equals a good weekly salary today just like it did 100 years ago. So if you worked for a week in 1918 and earned 20$ or a gold ounce since 20$ was a good weekly salary back then. And you held that gold coin for a year you still have the same purchasing power 100 years later

>> No.11952315

that's retarded the purchasing power and labor hours value of gold greatly fell in the past 100 years.

>> No.11952326

Your purchasing power would actually be much greater since there is a long-term tendency for commodity prices to fall in real (especially golden) terms

>> No.11952370

Wtf you talking about? 100 years ago a gold ounce = 20$. 20$ was a good weekly salary. Today that 20$ barely buys you lunch for two at Taco Bell but that gold ounce exchanged for fiat gives you $1,200...... which is still a good weekly salary.

You lost nothing

>> No.11952418

He means that a century ago, a Taco Bell lunch took much more labor to produce. Now we have all the automatisation, advanced supply logistics and agricultural modification.

If a golden ounce 100 yrs ago gave you a month of resto food, the same as now, you have still lost money.
The amount of work you purchased 100 yrs ago should be equivalent to 4 months of food at restos, but you still can afford only one

>> No.11952463

Your just describing the effects of automation. He’s saying that if your weekly pay held good in Golden terms you would be making good money.

Even if you were transported back to 1913 or whatever $20 a week would still be a good salary. It might not buy you Taco Bell because that didn’t exist back then but it would still buy you a great lunch with money to spare on rent+luxuries

>> No.11952467

But a good weekly salary was 20$ back then. Which equaled an ounce of gold and that gold ounce still gives you the same purchasing power today.

So you are saying people has to work harder for that 20$ back then?

I don't know what that has to do with your value being stored?

Sure we have automation and shit now... but that's now.

My value was stored for 100 years.

That 20$ got absolutely destroyed over 100 years but the gold ounce didn't ok comparison.

labor value of gold fell purchasing power of it fell, and even compared to real inflation the nominal value fell (outside of bubbles)
not to mention the alternative cost of holding gold all this time... stocks have outperformed it insanely in purchasing power growth.

>> No.11952549

The purchasing power of that $20 was about 510 dollars. So there has been a major fall in the real cost of commodities

>1200 (gold value 2018)>>510 (1913)

if your great-grandfatherwere paid in an ounce of gold weekly and hypothetically you inherited a labor contract in 2018 then you would be making more then double in real terms weekly.

Of course inflation calculators can’t calculate the fact that certain commodities we have in 2018 didn’t exist back then but that is not the point of one.

>> No.11952616

Say, we go further in time. Like, 11th century.
You have just enough gold to buy a mail, armor, a horse with all the acessories and a sword.
Fast forward to now.
If the same amount of gold still gets you all this, it has actually lost a freat deal of purchasing power.
Back in 11th century, if you had a horse and weapons, you were a king. You could pillage villages, face dozens of farmers in a fight and win, then impose tax nd get passive income for life.
Nowadays, cold weapons and a horse are hardly useful.

> if your weekly pay held good in Golden terms you would be making good money
True, steady gold salary would be better. But gold would still lose purchasing power. Slower than fiat, but it would

> So you are saying people has to work harder for that 20$ back then?
Yep. You didnt have that many easy money opportunities as now. I could probably flip some shit for extra $1200 every other day. Back then you'd be lucky to land yourself one of those production line jobs and not be worried about where to go once your job contract for canal digging expires.

> My value was stored for 100 years.
It wasnt.
If you measure gold's value in products it can buy, you need to account for the economic output of global economy.
What part of global economy your gold ounce was in 1900? What is it now?

no actually you generally lose money holding gold in the sense of purchasing power not nominally but sometimes nominally too. for example in the near future.

>> No.11952703

The average hourly wage in the US was about .22 an hour in 1913. That .22 cents would only be five bucks today. But it’s value in gold terms would probably be much greater; for instance boomer minimum wages in the 60s would probably be about $35 an hour if held in constant gold-terms.

Not only is that higher than if the value of the minimum wage had held good but that is a great wage for a worker in 2018.

Gold would get you much less in the past because labor was more expensive because the commodities necessary to sustain labor was also much, much more expensive.
