The Financial Economics of Gold - a survey

Fergal O'Connor, Brian Lucey (), Jonathan Batten () and Dirk Baur

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: We review the literature on gold as an investment. We summarize a wide variety of literature. We begin with a review of how the gold markets operate, including the under researched leasing market; we proceed to examine research on physical gold demand and supply, gold mine economics and move onto analyses of gold as an investment. Additional sections provide context on gold market efficiency, the issue of gold market bubbles, gold’s relation to inflation and interest rates, and the very nascent literature on the behavioural aspects of gold.
