John Paulson on the Possibility of a Gold Bubble

John Paulson discussed several issues at the conference. He touched on topics ranging from what he is investing in, what he’s not and his outlook for the economy. Paulson is taking a conservative stance when it comes to investment. According to PeopleUnlikeUs, he told conference attendees, “trying to invest in China from NY or London poses too much risk” …”we haven’t given up, we need more local presence.” Paulson was most talkative on the issue of gold. Paulson said “I view gold as currency, I was not interested in it as currency until quantitative easing” but he also explained that he thinks a gold bubble is impossible right now, explaining that ownership volume is too low for any sort of bubble to form, reports BusinessInsider.
