Birch Gold Group is proud to have received the endorsement of Ben Shapiro, host of the Ben Shapiro Show and Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Wire. Since August 2016, Birch Gold and Shapiro have worked together to educate Americans on the value of physical precious metals as part of a plan to diversify and protect your savings.
One little-known aspect of precious metals ownership that Ben Shapiro has helped bring to the fore is moving an IRA or eligible 401(k) into an IRA backed by physical gold and silver. This allows Americans to move their hard-earned retirement savings out of stocks and mutual funds and into the safe haven of physical precious metals.
Shapiro is an accomplished and growing voice among today’s political commentators. On top of hosting his show and running The Daily Wire, he is a nationally syndicated columnist, the author of nearly a dozen books and an attorney.
In his most recent appearance on the Ben Shapiro Show in March 2020, Phillip Patrick, a Precious Metals Specialist from Birch Gold Group, shared his thoughts on the Coronavirus stock market crash and what it may mean for the long-term prospects of precious metals:
In other episodes of the show, here are some more reasons that Shapiro has cited for rolling your retirement savings to physical gold and silver:
- Protection from inflation and the dollar’s loss of purchasing power
- Safeguard from the volatility of the stock market
- Diversification from owning only “paper” assets
- Security from cyber attacks
- Defense against geopolitical uncertainty
But at the core for why ownership of physical precious metals makes sense for all Americans, Ben Shapiro put it simply to his audience:
It’s foolish not to have some assets in the one area of human activity that has never been worth zero.
