kubisiak5, I completely and 100% disagree with your analogy. There is not enough Gold or Silver in supply to produce the coins that people want to buy. The US and Europe central banks are quanitative easing to infinity. Printing fiat currency. They are also buying Gold and Silver. Gold and Silver are in the process of going to 3 times their current price. In 18 months the dollar index will be between .5 and .6 in my opinion. They will have to use every tool they have to not hyper inflate. IT will slow things down if in Nov. we elect some real conservatives to office.
