NYT Article On Gold And Gold Investing

Saturday, June 12, 2010 - 2:12 PM
This NYT article reviews the gold investment craze and looks at both the pros and cons of investing in gold. It's one of the better articles on this topic IMHO. Here are some excerpts on both sides of the issue:

Still, gold can go down - sometimes sharply. After peaking in 1980 at more than $800 an ounce, gold sank over the next two decades, bottoming out at just over $250 an ounce in 1999.
