Gold, Beef and a Men's Suit.
Gold is trading @ $948.00 an ounce.
With the draught conditions increasing in Texas - the Abilene Auction is selling cattle @ $841.00 a head.
It appears that the cattle is at the low end of the three items at about $850.00.
But if worse came to worse - which would you like to own?
It's not that prices have gotten out of hand - the problem is inflation and the lack of buying power for the US Dollar.
See what your money would be worth today;
With the stock market closing at two thirds of it's all time high (9321 (today) - 14164 (mid to late 2007)) and home prices down 22.3% from their all-time high in 2006 - Isn't it the right time to invest in necessary goods.
It's said that you can't take your money with you,
but I guess you could be buried in your new suit.
