Why A Commodity Trading Legend is Buying Gold and Farmland Ahead of the Next Crisis

“Gold is a Tier 1. It’s a level one asset….” When a commodity trading guru like Dwight Anderson, founder of the iconic Ospraie Management, has something to say on the market outlook, people tend to listen, especially when he’s consigning the last great commodity bull run to the dustbin of history and buying gold and farmland for the next crisis.

Currencies Need to Depend on Faith, Gold Doesn’t

Gold should not be compared to stocks or real estate, but to other forms of money, such as any one of a number of fiat currencies now in circulation. Ironically, in a world awash in fiat currencies that are created at an ever increasing pace, and whose value is solely derived from faith in the issuing state, gold is the only form of money whose value does not require a leap of faith.

When Fundamentals No Longer Matter

Individuals will scour the internet to find the best deal on everything from a pair of shoes to a television. However, when it comes to investing, most people disregard “value” and tend to spend less time researching the underlying investment fundamentals and more time fantasizing about their future wealth.

Investment Decisions Based On Fundamentals - No Longer A Viable Philosophy

A skeptic would have to be blind not to see bubbles inflating in junk bond issuance, credit quality, and yields, not to mention the nosebleed stock market valuations of fashionable companies like Netflix and Tesla. The overall investment picture is one of growing risk and inadequate potential return almost everywhere one looks.
