How Investing in Gold Commodities Can Protect Your Finances

If you have been paying attention since the global financial crisis started in 2008, you have probably noticed the signs of inflation. Maybe you are paying more for groceries than you used to, or maybe your third child's university education cost considerably more than your first child's college education cost a decade ago. Regardless of where you see the signs, there is no question that they are there (and that the changes are hurting your wallet).

Inflation means that the money you do have—either physically, in paper form, or in the bank—carries less purchasing power than it would have a decade ago. By using some of that money to buy gold now, you can protect your finances (and your purchasing power) for the future.

Think about the situation this way: if you buy $500 in gold right now, you are buying a commodity for its intrinsic value. The metal content of gold bullion—be it bars, coins, jewellery or some other object—is valuable based on its weight of actual precious metal. Paper money is only worth something because a government says it is worth something. As a result, inflation is going to mean that your $500 in 2016 currency is worth a lot less (in terms of purchasing power) in 2026. Your gold, on the other hand, will not only retain its value but will have that value reflected differently based on 2026 currency. If you put $500 in cash and $500 in gold bullion in a safe for ten years, you would lose purchasing power on the former, but see the latter increase in dollar value. That's because gold retains both its intrinsic value and its purchasing power.
