      Why exactly do you have a

    Why exactly do you have a Gold IRA anyway? I think the consensus on this site is that you should own the physical gold (and silver) yourself and hold it in your own physical possession (as stated in forms like American Eagles. Maple Leafs, or Krugerrands).

    Owning a fully paid for house is a good idea; it provides security.

    Renting is a good idea: it provides flexibility (for example moving to a new area where you can find jobs which are lacking where you live).

    Living in a banker owned house (you have a big mortgage, but still have substantial equity tied up in the house) is subtantially worse than either of the first two options (you can lose  your house if you lose your job, you have difficulty moving to a different city–if you do you lose your equity).

    A fifty mile commute is ridiculous (unless it is a temporary transitional meaure). Doesn’t everyone here understand that if the economy falls apart, the roads are also going to fall apart? Would anyone here drive faster than 20 mph or so on a road filled with potholes?

      The Kindle edition is $15.37

    The Kindle edition is $15.37 while the hardcover is $18.26 (free Super Saver shipping), less than $3 less. If truly bad things happen it could well be that your Kindle copy could disappear in a few years–while your hardcover edition you can still read by sunlight.
