Silver gets its tail in the air on news Bolivian President Morales has ordered the May 1 expropriation of mines previously sold off by the government. The metal (SLV +3.2%) is doing a lot better than the affected miners: Pan American (PAAS -6.7%), Coeur d'Alene (CDE -5.7%).

    Waiting for U.S. appropriation of all those big rotten capitalists like Exxon and Apple and Bank of America. After all governments can run any company pretty well. Look at G.M.

    Silver will be $75 by Dec 2012. Big demand from China and India.

    Wonder how long it will take Bolivia to drive the industry into the ground? I bet production will be down 75% in the next 3 years before they allow companies foolish enough to take the bait back in.

    The copper market seems to be betting that Peru will elect their own left wing expropriator-in-chief.
