With the dollar falling further each day and gold continually breaking new records, one might ask, 'why?' Well, this short quote sums it up nicely:
"Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants, but debt is the money of slaves."
While the millions of debt slaves struggle just to survive and keep food on the table, their debt goes unpaid - creating defaults. The government can't allow this "deflation" to happen so it tries to pick up the debt slave's slack with their monetary printing presses. This action, however, creates a whole new "inflation" dynamic (and potential currency crisis) which forces the kings and gentlemen around the globe to run scared. They're looking for ways to quickly divest themselves of the cratering paper nightmare called the US dollar and into something that will save their purchasing power -- gold and silver!
