Imagine waking up one day to find all your financial assets are gone, completely wiped out. The savings and checking account, CDs, retirement, all of it has vanished overnight.
Sound like a bad nightmare? Well it is bad, and unfortunately it is already happening right under society's collective nose.
The problem is the money system currently in place, and the Dollars or Euros or wampum beads we use for everyday transactions. These currencies are nothing more than empty promises that are backed by nothing at all, and as a result real wealth is stolen from the people who are trapped by these underhanded systems. Currencies are prone to inflation, which causes your purchasing power (real wealth) to diminish over time. So it stands to reason that anyone holding Dollars or Euros for the long term is playing a losing game.
What's the solution? There's only one way to protect yourself and loved ones from this shaky financial house of cards and that is to own precious metals. To be more precise, any tangible commodity (something you can hold in your hands) holds more value and is a better investment opportunity than cash. But items like food will go bad and storing barrels of oil and using them to buy groceries isn't the most convenient thing in the world so most money savvy individuals flock to precious metals.
That brings us to platinum, one of the most desirable and compact forms of wealth available. Unlike cash, platinum is immune to inflation and your real wealth will never erode over time. It is also easily recognizable, easily obtained or sold locally (coin shops, swap meets, classifieds), and most importantly brings the peace of mind of knowing the rewards from your hard work is secure.
With the current worldwide financial crisis, and governments printing and spending mountains of money without restraint, I urge everyone reading this to seriously consider protecting yourself and family with a precious metals investment today.
If this article has at least got you thinking about your financial security and the advantages of precious metal ownership, then my job is done.
