Has wealth been stored in gold post Lehman?

Feb 10, 2014

Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

Has wealth been stored in gold post Lehman?
It is becoming increasingly apparent that the collective wealth of the rich has increased significantly since the global financial crisis. When Lehman Brothers went bankrupt in September 2008, the Fed launched extraordinary measures to save the US economy from a second great depression. Huge amounts of liquidity were injected into the economy. It has eventually found its way in to the hand of high net worth individuals around the world. As this interesting article points out, they have chosen gold as their preferred investment. Read on to find out more. (SafeHaven)

US will have to deal with slow growth in the long run
There were hopes that 2014 would be a turnaround year for the US economy with growth likely to breach the 3% mark. But that seems easier said than done. The US Fed's money printing policies have largely been a failure, unemployment and weak job prospects continue to be a huge problem. Unless there is a significant improvement in the jobs scenario, consumption in the longer run is likely to remain subdued. In such a situation, what is the likely growth rate that the US is expected to report? Read on to find out. (Money News)

Be the change you want others to make
While this is not a typical investing related article, it is an interesting one wherein the author talks about the changes he made in his life after realising that it is not easy to change other people. And rather, he makes those changes in his life which he wishes to see in others with an aim to possibly inspire them in some way. (Gurufocus)

Is China staring at a currency crisis?
As per latest reports, China's gold consumption jumped 41% in 2013 to exceed 1,000 tonnes for the first time. This excludes the purchase by the Chinese central bank. Is the increased appetite for gold in China a shrewd investment trend? Or is it in anticipation of a currency crisis? As per yet another report, the borrowing cost for Chinese companies has soared to 20 month highs. And with that several companies are staring at the economy's first bond default. What could this mean for the Yuan? Read on to find out. (Bloomberg)
