The Chronic Consumer

I buy things — all the time!

Buying silver

I’m not quite ready to go into full panic mode when it comes to the global economy, but things still seem pretty bad all over the world. I don’t have any investments to speak of (besides my home), and I’m very worried that my cash savings won’t be worth very much 10 years from now, let alone by the time I retire. So, I’m actually thinking of buying silver bullion bars to protect myself.

Many experts believe it’s better to have tangible goods such as gold or silver instead of just paper currency, and I’m starting to agree. I would buy gold if I could afford it, but since that’s out of the question, silver is the next best thing.

I don’t know enough about the precious metals market to jump in right now; however, after a bit more research I should be ready to decide one way or the other.
