What drives the price of gold?

The history of gold is fraught with folly and peril, obsessions and blind faith. Our powerful, deeply-embedded beliefs have driven us to pay unimaginable prices during lusty bubbles while at other times leave gold forgotten in the gutters of global finance. For over a century, rational investors have struggled to understand why, and more importantly, how to profit.

After a brief romp through the 6,000 year history of gold, laying the foundation for the origin of our misconceptions, Jeffrey methodically constructs a new framework for analyzing gold and its related investments. Stripped of our ancient emotional and cultural biases and drawing from over a century of data, the truth about gold and how to value it is laid bare. The result is both shockingly simple and elegantly intuitive.

It will challenge your beliefs and make you a better investor.
