Ben Stein on gold

I don't recommend the small individual investor buy individual commodities at all. I've been a pessimist on gold, and I still don't think gold deserves to be at the price it's at. I just don't see why it is considered so valuable. It earns no interest. It's just a passive, inert metal. It's like an obsession, it's like a mania, to have it. And I don't see what the value is
