Cost of living aways goes up in the modern era, do you know why? The governments of the world like to spend your money they either do it directly through taxation or they use their central banks to pump out “paper notes” diluting your savings every year like crimal counterfeiters. The US constitution is clear that only gold and silver can be used as legal tender because the government cannot print gold and silver to finance itself.

Precious metals preserve wealth paper notes lose wealth
Gold and silver can be digitized for use in modern era, like gold and silver certificates (claim tickets on actual bullion) for use in electronic transactions. Yes silver is used up in industry but that only lowers the cost of goods in terms of silver so guess what you get an “interest“ rate for holding onto money instead of having to gamble your dollar bills in the stock market (treasury bills and bonds dont pay shit anymore thanks to the fed)
