http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-...-forget-gold-has-outperformed-stocks-40-years Gold was pegged to global currencies up until 1967. Stocks weren’t. Comparing the two during this time period is just bad analysis. Gold has risen 37.43 fold since 1967. That is more than twice the performance of the Dow over the same time period (18.45 fold). So much for the claim that stocks are a better investment than Gold long-term.
