Food for thought
The government is the only agency that can take a valuable commodity like paper, slap some ink on it, and make it totally worthless.

[Some excerpts from the latest issue of the Weekend Update in the subscribers section of the website.]

It was another interesting week for gold and silver markets as chronicled on Friday in Did Anything Change This Week For Precious Metals Markets? With a bit more time to ponder the subject, it seems the question posed in that title can be answered a bit more definitively now.

24hGold - Yes – Something Has ...

Yes – something did change last week in precious metals markets.

In short, recent economic data has revealed how fragile the U.S. economy is and this makes it far less likely that the Federal Reserve will stop printing money or start raising interest rates anytime soon.

That’s the message that can be gleaned from the surprise drop in fourth quarter economic growth and the increase in the unemployment rate, though there were also a few other notable events in precious metals markets last week including record coin sales, central bank buying, and developments in Asia.
