An ounce of gold today buys the same amount of crude oil it did 60 years ago

An ounce of gold today buys the same amount of crude oil it did 60 years ago – that’s one of the keys to having a successful sound money. And, for the foreseeable future gold is going to continue to preserve purchasing power. There will be fluctuations from time to time in gold’s price, but gold will preserve purchasing power over long periods of time and that’s why I highly recommend it.
