John Embry : why you should own physical Gold and Silver

John Embry Chief Investment Strategist at Sprott Asset Management  discusses the reasons why people should own Gold and Silver : ...I think that it is absolutely essential that gold and silver be in anybody's portfolio particularly anybody that has substantial wealth for the simple reason that paper assets are under attack because of the debasement of money and I mean if you want sort of historical example look at what happened in the 1970s if you had gold and silver in your portfolio I mean you offset the fact that inflationary environmental the real returns on paper assets bonds and stocks were negligeable if not considerably negative and if you had enough to have a lot but if you had a say a ten percent representation in your portfolio you skated through what positive returns with positive returns of overall portfolio but if you did not you have a negative return so the situation today is infinitely worse than it was then so I think it's essential that people have it and the interesting fact is that the vast majority of people don't have it which gives you sort of a leg up if you got it , right now basically if you don't have it you better be getting it soon ...you should diversify ...the safest way to own gold is in your position ...you should have ten to twenty percent portfolio in physical gold and silver ...the US Stocks today are grotesquely over priced , the US bond market dos not even deserve a comment ...the currency debasement is a worldwide phenomenon
