Golden Dreams & Delusions: (PART 7)

Continuing from PART 6

In this series of articles I have been discussing the myths, lies, dreams and delusions about gold, hyperinflation and other nonsense that continues to be flooded into the media by idiots, liars and snake oil salesmen.

With so many lying scumbags, snake oil salesmen and profiteers out there, obviously one of the most important skills to have to avoid falling victim to these rascals is to know how to determine whether someone can be a trusted source of information and insight.

So how does one determine whether or not to trust the judgment of someone claiming to know more than you about gold, silver, stocks and bonds, real estate or anything else related to investments?

Always remember, a person’s views are only as good as their credibility.

In this final part of the series, I am going to begin by providing you with an overview on how to assess credibility. Then will close this series of articles with a discussion about gold.

Before I begin, I will tell you this with complete confidence. If you see anyone in the media frequently, you won’t even need to waste your time checking to determine whether you can trust them because I will personally guarantee you that they either have no credibility, or else blowing hot air.

Often, the media airs individuals possessing both characteristics. Thus, you cannot trust them. Either way, you stand to lose much more than you might gain by using the media for financial insight.
