  • The Gold Bubble Is Deflating, And Resistance Is Futile [View article]
    LOL@Jimbo, if you had stock-piled uranium in 1995, you would have doubled your money by now, assuming that you had buried it in JasonC's backyard for free.

    You're arguing the same side as every gold bug:

    Finite Resources vs. Unlimited Money Creation

    All of this talk of radiation was simply a means to an end.

    p.s. You still don't know sh!t about uranium.

    I'll say it again, you can't re-arrange/recycle the underlying elements found in durable goods into new durable goods without losing the value of the original investment.

    If you build "Houses, automobiles, appliances, power plants, roads, ports, container ships, tractor trailers, machine tools, rolled steel" and then scrap those durable goods to be recycled into new "Houses, automobiles, appliances, power plants, roads, ports, container ships, tractor trailers, machine tools, rolled steel", you're left with maybe 0.0001% of your original investment.

    If you want to stock Fort Knox full of noble gases, knock yourself out.

    Once you compress U-238 into an ingot, you're left with the ingot and leftover (carcinogenic) depleted uranium (dust). Also, the cost of compressing uranium into an ingot is prohibitively expensive compared to casting gold bars. Nice try though.

    U-238 (natural or depleted) in large concentrations (ie. on a battlefield), is a carcinogen no matter what the corrupt WHO and CDC say.

    I don't know how many times I have to explain this but "Houses, automobiles, appliances, power plants, roads, ports, container ships, tractor trailers, machine tools, rolled steel" are not prime elements found on the periodic table. These things decay over time.

    Wow, you really don't understand what half life means at all.

    Uranium exposure can cause birth defects, damage to internal organs, and cancer.

    Gold, not so much.

    Half life refers to the decay rate, not the intensity of radiation.

    It means that a sample of Uranium will be half as radioactive as it is now after 4.5 billion years.

    Due to the nature of its exponential decay, Uranium will technically remain radioactive for an infinite period of time.

  • Why Gold Is Collapsing [View article]
    A declining oil price doesn't increase GDP. It just moves money from oil companies to other businesses. It's like the moving deck chairs around on the Titanic.

    The only thing more bullish than lower oil prices are higher oil prices (because then consumers will have less money to save).

    I stopped reading your comment at "The author" but I'm sure it was a fine point. ;)

    They don't mine and store uranium as an investment due to the massive upkeep costs... you know... radiation?

    It's also the same reason why gold is more efficient than holding nickel and silver. $1 million dollars worth of gold takes-up much less space, with lower upkeep costs, than $1 million dollars worth of iron or silver.

    For the record, the Starbucks barista accepted my 1oz gold bar when I tried to pay for my coffee with it this morning. No change back though.

    Really? You have "Houses, automobiles, appliances, power plants, roads, ports, container ships, tractor trailers, machine tools, rolled steel" made from uranium?

    Wow, color me impressed.

  • Santelli Is Wrong - There Is No Inflation In The PPI Data [View article]
    Inflation is the banker's friend because it's the byproduct of money creation (QE).

    Whenever central banks print money and issue loans, it's *impossible* for all of the creditors to payback all of the loans in full (due to interest) unless the central banks print and loan more money.

    Now that QE has been tapered, defaults will rise and the asset bubble that was inflated will deflate.

    As you said, deflation is the enemy of the central banks and they will do everything in their power to hide it from the public, much the same way they fraudulently hid all the inflation caused by their unrestrained and gluttonous money printing.

    I must have missed the part about the Comex gold futures leverage ratio and the fraudulent rehypothecation of physical gold.
