GOLD VS USD$
Adjusted for inflation, 1997 to 2017
THE CASE FOR GOLD
If you keep cash in a standard debit account, inflation is slowly draining your savings. As this chart shows, the buying power of the U.S. dollar has declined dramatically over the past two decades. A $100 bill stashed in no-interest savings in 1997 is now worth only $65 when adjusted for inflation, while $100 in gold has increased to $303 – a powerful reason to use gold for your everyday spending needs.
