Also, with global governments printing record amounts of money and future inflation mostly unavoidable, lots of investors are seeking protection in gold. I'd like gold if I didn't think I could get higher returns elsewhere. So, I'm looking into oil companies located in China, with its marginal competitive advantage of lower production costs.
