NEW YORK, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Former Republican presidential candidate and libertarian Dr. Ron Paul is a keynote speaker at the New York Metals & Minerals Investment Conference on May 13, 2013 in New York City.
As a serious investor in gold and silver mining stock himself, it should come as no surprise that approximately 64% of Paul's personal portfolio is made up of natural resources stocks. In a recent Wall Street Journal article looking at a 2010 "Form A" financial disclosure statement filed by the congressman, values Paul's personal portfolio between $2.44 and $5.46 million. While some may call Paul's investment portfolio risky, others call it successful.Paul has a consistent record, having warned of hyperinflation as far back as 1981. He believes the long-term decrease of the U.S. dollar's purchasing power by inflation is attributable to its lack of any commodity backing and advocates eliminating legal tender laws and removing the sales tax on gold and silver, so that the market may freely decide what type of monetary standard(s) there shall be. "We are excited that Dr. Paul will be speaking during the Metals & Mining Investment Conference on May 13 th. Hearing from a political leader who has discussed hyperinflation and GOLD in the mainstream media will be a great addition to our conference," said Jonathan Moore, Managing Director and Senior Vice President, Events at Summit Business Media. "His history with gold and silver mining stocks coupled with our other speakers will provide our attendees with the most well rounded views on the investment opportunities available in this sector." Additional conference speakers include Ralph Aldis, Senior Analyst, US GLOBAL INVESTORS; Jeffrey Christian, Managing Partner, CPM GROUP; Kenneth Hoffman, Sector Head, Global Metals & Mining Research, BLOOMBERG RESEARCH; Kevin Quigg, Global Head of SPDR ETF Strategy and Consulting, STATE STREET GLOBAL ADVISORS; and Nick Snowdon, Base Metals Research Analyst, Commodities Research, BARCLAYS CAPITAL.
