If you poke around on the internet, you’ll find a lot of people who have criticized me for being a “gold hater.” Here are two different pieces that took me just a few seconds to find. There are plenty of tweets out there saying the same thing.
These people have been basically right. Over the years, I’ve said a lot of bad stuff about gold — how it’s a lousy currency, how it’s just a rock that shouldn’t have any value, how love of it is primitive and irrational, how it has no justifiable basis in the economy.
But I’m changing my mind, and it’s all due to Donald Trump.
