“‘Act big’ now to save economy, worry about debt later.”
This recent headline sums up Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s economic stance. And that stance has set up the most obvious long-term bet in the markets today.
Our government is about to spend… and spend big. Yellen’s attitude toward that spending is indicative of the entire Biden administration.
President Joe Biden has put forward a plan for another $1.9 trillion in stimulus. And there’s talk of an additional infrastructure-spending bill as well.
This comes after a year when government spending was the highest on record. The two 2020 stimulus bills totaled more than $3 trillion.
Clearly, “act now and worry about debt later” is more than just a talking point… It’s real policy. And it will continue to be as we move through the rest of 2021.
I’m not saying that this is good or bad. That argument isn’t one I’m interested in. But looking at the ramifications of this spending is important to us, as investors.
Today, I’ll share the obvious bet it’s setting up today – and the easiest way you can take advantage of it…

To me, the outcome of “act now and worry about debt later” is certain. We’re going to have a lot more dollars out there… dollars that are going to be worth less and less in the future. And that’s an incredible tailwind for a true store of value…
Of course, I’m talking about gold.
Gold is the most obvious long-term bet in today’s market. Government spending is about to rise dramatically. That means the number of dollars in the system is about to go up dramatically.
On the other hand, the gold supply isn’t going up much at all. It typically increases by less than 2% a year. And that sets up a clear supply-and-demand equation…
We’ve got lots and lots more dollars out there and roughly the same amount of gold. And that means gold priced in dollars should go up dramatically.
Surprisingly, this hasn’t happened yet…

The clock is ticking on the biggest financial event in 20 years.
And if you want to take advantage, you must position yourself in the early days of 2021.
Yes, the metal hit new all-time highs for the first time in nearly a decade last August. It broke above $2,000 an ounce. But gold didn’t end the year on a hot streak. Instead, it fell for most of the last half of the year.
This sets up an incredible opportunity. The long-term story for gold is hugely – and obviously – positive. But it hasn’t started working yet. That gives you a rare opportunity to act.
There are plenty of ways to do it. You can make a risky bet by buying gold stocks. But the most straightforward way to make this trade is by simply owning physical gold.
For an even easier way to make the bet, you can buy the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD). This simple fund tracks the price of gold. And it’ll be a sure winner as this opportunity begins to play out.
Regardless of how you do it, you need to have some gold in your portfolio. Given what’s happening in our government, it’s the most obvious long-term bet I see in the market today.
Please, make sure you’re taking advantage of it.
