Gold is used in every day things such as fillings, computers, cell phones, PlayStation 3s, and jewelry.
So, people and buissnesses need this metal to make expensive goods to market for the public. One way
to gain money or secure your money is to invest in gold. With gold prices still on the rise ($1,720 an
ounce as of December 5th, 2011) there is room for you to make money if you have the patiance and
avalible time. With the volatile econmy you can secure your hard work with investing in gold. We will
always need gold and there will always be a demand for it. If the US were to get invaded and over
taken by someone (highly doubt that would happen) and messed with our economy, you could still
keep your hard work saved up with gold. Just don't go all out in investing with it because if they
discover some gold mine in Africa and gold prices drop to $50 an ounce, you will lose all your money.
Good Luck with it!
