John Paulson gave a speech last night to the Chinese Finance Association, where he discussed gold, inflation, the outlook for the economy, and what he’s investing in.
A key point: He’s still a big believer in gold, and he thinks talk of a bubble is ludicrous.
This picture was taken by trader and twitterer Brenna Hardman, and in it you can see what Paulson is getting at. Gold holdings as a percentage of pension and money market funds remains ultra-tiny. You can make a case about whether or not this matters or not, but the gist of his argument is that you can’t have a bubble when ownership is this tiny.
