History, and not just that of the U.S., is riff with events that have turned nations on their heads. In these times there is something that has always maintained its standing power, and even risen above such economic turmoil-and that asset is Gold. The earliest known use of gold in human history is the use of the metal in artifacts found in a burial site that date back at least 7,000 years ago. We can purport, that from that point, people have had an inclination towards the shiny, yellow metal: from ancient Egyptians, to the powerful Roman Empire, and even the native cultures in Central and South America such as the Inca and Aztec.
More recently, gold has seen a rise in value because of our own domestic monetary difficulties. Two cases stand out: one from March 2001 to November 2001 and another from December 2007 to June 2009, America experienced two of its estimated 32 cycles of expansion and contraction since 1854; but these are two of four that are considered a recessions. During those periods gold experienced a steady increase: the price of an ounce of gold in January 2001 was around $264, and the end of 2003 it was $415. Since then gold has experienced a nearly tripling its market worth.
