U.S. household wealth rises to near 2007 high Reuters – 4 hours ago Email 8 Print By Jason Lange WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The net wealth of U.S. households rose in the third quarter to its highest since late 2007, providing a hopeful sign for future consumer spending.

Not really. Price of gold was 600 then, now it's 1600 meaning the value of a dollar has decreased by its inverse. In other words, your household worth would have to be 2.6 times what it was in 2007 to buy the same amount of gold. Inflation is a universal tax affecting rich and poor alike. Get ready for more inflation as that is the ONLY way out of our government created debt bubble...by at least a factor of 15... Good luck.
