You Should Have Listened to Glenn Beck

Posted on | July 18, 2011 | 45 Comments

In May 20, 2010, when I first took note of Rep. Anthony Weiner’s attack on Glenn Beck for promoting gold, the price was $1,192.60 per ounce. Now here’s Monday’s headline from Bloomberg:

Gold Tops $1,600, Surges to Record
in Longest Rally in 31 Years on Debt

Monday’s price was $1,607.90 an ounce, which means gold has increased $415.30 per ounce since May 2010 —  a 35% gain in 14 months.

Beck was right. Anthony Weiner? Not so much.

UPDATE: Welcome, Instapundit readers! Perhaps I could interest you in a $120,000 7-carat diamond ring?
