Re: Potential Benefits of a Precious Metals Allocation

Errors in table 3. Looks like they suggest 10% gold.

Gold got a big backtesting boost from the unpeg. Any of you around then, why'd stocks tank?

Re: San Francisco

Cost of freedom. You cant tell an adult what they're allowed to do with their own body (fentanyl) and you cant lock up the mentally ill because it turns into the Cuckoo's Nest.

Getting rid of minimum wage would get half the bums working, but that sounds mean to voters.

Are the assets supposed to be volatility matched? If gov issues 1,000 year bond with huge volatility, should you only hold enough of that to offset the volatility of the other assets?

State wants more in taxes, and/or this is what the public wants. Its being cheered on Reddit, as sticking it to the greedy Uber executives. Democracy sucks.

More internet access and more old people. It's a portfolio for retirees, those panicking during a crash, and goldbugs

Re: Gold is going to zero

It was never the only money tho. When it got too expensive people traded spices, other metals, etc. There are more currencies than ever now
