    Is gold a good investment?

    I don't own any, and don't think I will at the current levels, but I'd be interested in hearing other people's thoughts on the matter.

    Gold is an excellent investment because it holds its value even when other currencies depreciate. It cannot be created or manufactured, which means governments can't just "print" more gold when they run of your money to spend. An excellent source for information on gold as an investment is a study done by Dr. Roy W. Jastram called The Golden Constant. I've interviewed several of the top experts in the precious metals investment industry, and they all agree that gold is one of the best all time investments for any portfolio.
