Can Gold Fly Under the Radar?

Gold is currently brushing aside seemingly bearish gold news revolving around Bin Laden’s death and moving higher. This rally in gold has a lot more to do with the debt crisis than terrorism. Commentators predicting gold’s demise based on recent events are just proving how clueless they are. Since silver’s huge run-up, gold has looked a lot more attractive to me on a relative basis.

Is the U.S. Dollar Collapse Imminent?

The truly epic rally in silver continues, and it appears there’s no way out of talking about it. I almost don’t want to write about silver because it seems like people misunderstand what I’m trying to say. What I say next will probably be selectively ignored once again, but let me just repeat: Most of my net worth is in silver!

I suppose such an explanation appeals to the masses who don’t understand the dynamics of the Middle East. This explanation is much too simple. For Americans, democracy is the equivalent of all that is good in the world. In fact, people mistakenly link democracy and economic growth, even though the Asian economic miracle, led…
