Now you don't need to be embarrassed by a paper portfolio that under performs in this inflationary environment. Remember my blog entry from last year called pea cocking? Where central banks around the globe were proudly reporting their physical gold holdings? Accumulating real wealth in the form of gold coins and numismatic silver?
