Directions (86-90): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below
it. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them while an-swering
some of the questions.
The price of gold has gone up from \$ 256 an ounce in 2001 to \$ 1,424. Meanwhile, price levels
have struggled or crashed with respect to almost all other asset classes. Central banks have slashed
interest rates. Yet gold prices, it has been predicted, may go up and up. The many reasons for this
renewed love are convincing. Interestingly, not long ago pundits had predicted the end of gold as
the. worlds default asset class and were clubbing it with commodities. It appears that the yellow
metal is making a comeback to reassert the preeminence it has enjoyed for 5,000 years of history.
Its supply is falling. No new mines have been discovered. The existing ones are getting
exhausted, and miners are digging as deep as 5 km. Gold content in ore has come down from almost
12 gm. a tonne to 2 gm. And it costs more and more to take that out. Environmental concerns have
also contributed to mine owners problems. The wages of miners are going up; so is the cost of
providing them safety and security.
Emerging economies such as China and India are accumulating gold in order to reduce their
dependence on the dollar. While the U. S. has a reserve of 9,200 tonnes of gold. China has 1.054
tonnes and India 565 tonnes. No wonder, as emerging economic superpowers China and India want
to add to the reserves. Industrial use of gold is on the rise the world over. With the U. S. economy
still drifting with the threat of the dollar losing its undisputed position of reserve currency the rush
to gold is increasing.
Added to all this is the rekindled investor preference for gold. Money is moving away from
mutual funds and equities and the once fashionable and often discredited hedge funds are also
getting into gold, Exchange traded funds (ETF) are channeling ever more funds to gold. Some pension
funds are increasing the proportion of gold in their basket of assets. Given all this, gold can go
nowhere but up. That is the consensus.

==================================================================================
Everyone seems to be joining the new gold rush. But is everything well with gold? Or is it a
bubble building up?
Consider the conventional wisdom. Money generally gets distributed, though not in any fixed
proportion, among assets such as real estate, stocks, cash, government securities, gold, commodities,
and in new investments in factories and machinery. There is no state of equilibrium in a global
economy. Money gets transferred across geographical boundaries and asset classes based on
anticipated gains. As long as the flow is reasonable and is generally in line with the increase in
returns, this works well.
But when everyone rushes to the same destination, we are looking for trouble. Excess demand,
though often artificial, creates excess supp as in the case of real estate. Excess supply leads to price
crashes.
Is something similar happening in gold? The general consensus is no Gold is different. It has
never let anyone down in 5,000 years, ft is indestructible. Its supply is limited. The argument in the
case of gold is that excess demand cannot create excess supply as the total world supply is limited.
But this time it is different. Is it really so? Gold has also gone up and down in the past. It was \$ 424
an ounce in 1990 before crashing to \$ 255 in 2001. Still, it moves only within a range and huge
fluctuations are not possible in gold, argue some people, Actually, gold gave much better returns in
the 1980s, only to stagnate and lose those gains in the 1990s.
A crash of gold prices could be the ultimate crash, nothing like we have seen. No one has
managed to discredit the yellow metal in 5,000 years. But it appears that for the first time in history
the ETFs, the hedge funds and the governments are about to do the undoable. The fact that it has
not already happened is no guarantee that it will not happen. Look at all the easy money corning
into gold. All those who have shifted money from real estate, mutual funds, pension funds, hed
funds and stocks are pouring it into gold. Gold ETFs are the fastest growing investment vehicles
today. This is all real quick money, but can evaporate at the click of a key. Of course, governments
such as China and India are also betting on gold and increasing their reserves. But then, whoever
said governments can make no mistakes?
The intrinsic value of gold has not gone up from S 255 to S 1,424 in 10 years, Gold is not
consumed heavily like oil or grain. Industrial use of gold is limited. Gold is the most recycled
commodity. Of the annual production of 2,500 tonnes, about 50 per cent goes to make jewellery and
it is almost entirely recycled. The rest goes to industrial and other uses, and even here the recycling
rate is high. In other words, all that demand is artificial and can be deflated in no lime. There is no
need to have excess supply to lead to a price crash, unlike other products. The sheer fact that gold
is only a hedge instrument and does not serve any practical use by itself, will negate the there is no
new supply theory. Someone somewhere is watching for the perfect moment to disgorge the hoard.
to create sudden panic and buy up following a crash.
There is no sign that a crash is going to come tomorrow, or for that matter next year or the
year after, It may still go up for two or five or even 10 years. But crash it will, if we are to go by the
economic history of boom and bust. Also, the higher it goes and the longer it stays there, the more
painful the crash is going to be, especially for India, Indians sit on an estimated 18,000 tonnes.
India has always had the largest gold reserve with individuals. Imagine what will happen to millions
of Indians if gold were to crash. A crash of gold will be the crash of the Indian economy.
That should make us more responsible. That makes it imperative for our economists to track
gold movement. That makes it important for our financial wizards to prevent a bubble in gold. That
should force us to act before it happens. Never in history have we had so much idle money chasing
so little gold. Gold is losing its respect as the default and fail safe as set class and becoming a
speculative instrument. This shift of gold from being an item of passive wealth to an instrument of
speculation is dangerous. Gold is being talked up by crafty, speculators and unsuspecting
governments. And these predictions are being made by those sitting on gold worth billions of dollars
bought at yesterdays prices.
