It may seem strange, but I’ve always kind of admired Auric Goldfinger. For those who aren’t familiar with him, Goldfinger was the titular villain of the 1963 James Bond Film, Goldfinger. For all that he was a megalomaniacal supervillain; Goldfinger had a pretty decent plan to increase his personal wealth.
Goldfinger’s plan involved buying up lots of gold, and then irradiating the U.S. gold reserve at Fort Knox in order to increase the value of the gold he had purchased. While destroying a national economy is not something I would ever do, even if I had the power, I respect that Goldfinger knew that gold is one of the only substances that has always increased in value. This factor alone sets him apart from any other supervillains I’ve seen in movies and television.
While I am sadly lacking in henchmen (or Goldfinger’s squadron of attractive female fighter pilots), I can do something to increase my own personal wealth in a way that would please Goldfinger: I can invest in a gold IRA rollover. If the term, ‘gold IRA rollover’ isn’t familiar to you, I’m not surprised. I know that for me, I wasn’t always fully aware of how important gold is.
