We received our latest copy of Fortune Magazine at the office this week. Surprisingly, the front cover featured gold (of all things barbarous) on Fortune's 2014 Investor's Guide. The various sections of the Investor's Guide were introduced with pictures of gold. Contrariwise, in a cosmic twist of great irony, none of the investors featured in the magazine actually mentions gold as an investment to consider for the coming year. In fact, gold is not mentioned anywhere in the magazine at all! What is the message here?
