PODCAST: What Millennials Don’t Get About Gold

January 9, 2019


The 'millennial' generation has been called one of the most 'financially savvy' generations in recent memory. But it is also clear that many millennials don't fully understand what money really is, let alone the history of our current monetary system. In this week's podcast, Jerry and Jennifer Robinson are joined by precious metals expert Tom Cloud to discuss an important financial knowledge gap in the millennial generation, and how to solve it.

Show Notes

Segment 1: Why Aren't Millennials Buying Gold?
Segment begins at 00:44

In true Follow The Money fashion, economist Jerry Robinson and his wife/financial analyst Jennifer continue their quest to educate listeners on the basic concepts of money, with a special message today for millennials. They begin with an examination of possible reasons why so few millennials are interested in owning gold.

  • Gold seems irrelevant in today’s high tech world
  • Poor media coverage: They’re not sure where or how to buy it
  • They know more bitcoin millionaires than gold/silver millionaires
  • They believe cryptocurrency will replace gold
  • They are more tech-savvy than their parents and gold/silver just seems boring
  • Many don’t understand what money really is
