“The best place to have your money is in either sound currencies or real assets. For my money, real assets are a better place to be because, throughout history, when governments have started printing a lot of money, the money has gone into real things – whether that’s silver, or cotton, or natural gas – something that’s real that people can use. Putting into paper money at a time when paper money is being debased all over the world is usually not a good thing to do.”
