Buying precious metals is silly. Stocks. ETF's, Mutuals are much better. If you buy precious metals you better take delivery. You will watch a 10% to 20% loss on the sale from the quoted buy price and postage and insurance.
Why waste time with solar panels. Here is what really happens. From the moment they are installed they start degrading. At 10 years you will be getting 50% or less of the first years electricity. At 20 years the panels will be dead. Redo your roof it will cost twice as much or more.
In the marketplace solar does not work. I am tired of subsidizing very rich people who lie to the public. Our government is corrupt over this and many other things.
