Since the dollar has a pretty bleak future, and Nobama has raised taxes to cover the deficit, I am interested in a gold investment. The price per ounce is expected to shoot through the roof, almost an expected $3k-4k+/oz. in the coming years. Coins I heard are pretty consistent but i WOULD like to own a few shiny gold bars stock markets sound fun too. though if i get too crazy with it, i don't want the investment to tank. if anyone has some insight on these topics, respond please...i don't want my hard-minimum wage labor to go to waste. edit: Srs replies only, gents.
