So Expensive Series - Gold
Some investors love gold as a hedge against volatile markets and inflation. But what gives it any value?
For centuries, gold has been a sought-after precious metal. It has multiple uses across many different industries. It can also just be a darn good investment to purchase and hold. But why do we ascribe any kind of value to it? Discuss this with your students in NGPF's activity series based on Business Insider's web series: So Expensive and other videos.
Students will watch a video about a specific product or service, identify the specific factors of production that impact its price, and dig deeper by answering a few thought-provoking questions.
