Long-term commodity prices

On previous posts I have written about the long-term prices of housing and why I didn’t considered a house a sound investment, about why it is better to invest in any asset than having cash, why pencils would be as safe as an asset can be (even if not productive) and why gold is not more worthy than pencils. I, then, included some interesting graphics showing quite long-term views on the issue.

Weeks ago The Economist showed another interesting long-term graphic that I wanted to share and also to leave it here as a note to self as a reminder of the long-term worth of commodities.
