E No Silver Lining Here
Some argue that silver is due for an explosion upwards in price and that it is temporarily and wrongly undervalued relative to gold. Unfortunately, the past 250 years of history gives no indication of support for this argument.

E Gold - What Are We Waiting For?
Those who are 'bullish' on gold cannot let go. Their behavior is typical of those who have missed the boat. And their problem is compounded by the fact that they originally viewed gold as a quality 'investment'.

No Silver Lining Here

There are two primary reasons for silver's price surge in the 1970s.

1)Silver mining production lagged consumption for nearly two full decades during the 1950s-60s. During that period, the U.S. Treasury sold silver regularly from its hoard of nearly two billion ounces. This action kept the market price for silver suppressed. By 1970 nearly all of the silver was gone and the Treasury had to stop its sales. Thus, the price of silver was freed to find a presumably higher level that would eventually balance

consumption and production.

2) The United States suspended all convertibility of the U.S. dollar into gold in 1971. Those who were prescient enough to recognize the ongoing threat of further U.S. dollar depreciation, purchased gold and silver based on their historic roles as money.

The Hunt family's involvement simply added to these two forces and likely sent silver prices far beyond any reasonably sustainable level at the time. (From an average price of $1.60 to a high of $49.50 in January 1980 represents a three thousand percent increase.)

ALL HAIL THE FED!

The United States Federal Reserve Bank has left a century-long trail of damage in its wake. A misguided attempt to manage the stages (growth, prosperity, recession, depression) of the economic cycle has led to nearly complete destruction in the value of our money. The Federal Reserve caused the Depression of the 1930s and worsened its effects. Their actions also...

Inflation is an insidious threat to our financial and economic security. It has been foisted upon us to the point that we are in danger of losing much more than the value of our money. The capital markets are facing risks of immensely greater proportion than those of 2007-08...
