Food Beats Gold

This recent article at makes a strong case why the sentiments around holding gold and silver, especially as a crash currency, may be somewhat misplaced.

“Agriculture’s been a horrible business for 30 years. For decades the money shufflers, the paper shufflers, have been the captains of the universe. That is now changing. The people who produce real things [will be on top]. You’re going to see stockbrokers driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors, because they’ll be working for the farmers. It’s going to be the 29-year-old farmers who have the Lamborghinis. So, you should find yourself a nice farmer and hook up with him or her, because that’s where the money’s going to be in the next couple of decades.”
