Why Now is the time to consider owning gold


By: Mike McDaniel    July 10, 2010, the Summerlin Costco in Las Vegas, Nevada. West Point graduate and former Army armor officer, Erik Scott and his fiancé Samantha Sterner were shopping. Scott, who earned a Duke MBA, did very well during the Vegas real estate boom. However, booms are followed by busts, and Scott was working, successfully, but not nearly as lucratively, in high-tech medical device (pacemakers) sales. He had already decided to leave Las Vegas as soon as he could. Ironically, he would leave much sooner than he imagined.
