  • 3D Printing Debunked, Part 2: Industries  [View article]
    I sort of agree with you but feel your analysis is missing something. I feel much of the motivation to switch to 3D printing lies in management of a company's inventory, not just producing an item in an alternative fashion. I ran an electronic retail/service company and the largest problem I faced was maintaining an inventory of repair parts. I kept thousands of items in stock just in case an important client had some sort of equipment failure. My business initially operated on the 'one to show, one to go' system but I discovered that the cost of having even one expensive inventory item setting around on a shelf was costing me way, way to much money. Being able to visit a local 3D printer who could quickly print my widget for me (even if it was a bit more expensive) would have been a God-send! Thank you for the effort you put into your article!

  • Sandstorm Metals: Destroying Shareholder Value For 3 Years  [View article]
    Thanks for your candid opinion. It is a refreshing change from the 'glowing' commentary I read daily. I had high hopes for Sandstorm Metals and found myself growing disappointed as well. Again... thanks.

  • Will BitCoin Have Opportunities With SilkRoad Shutdown And Millions In Seizures By The FBI?  [View article]
    Even bad PR is better than no PR so this will not really harm Bitcoin. Bitcoin has plenty of drawbacks but the future of digital currency is amazing. The day the majority of 3rd world countries start accepting Bitcoin (or whatever digital currency is in vogue at that moment) as their common monitary system will be the demise of traditional money.

  • More Signs Of Strength In The Housing Market  [View article]
    It wasn't two minutes ago that I read a headline stating that 4 out of 5 Americans are at or below the poverty line. I saw the same information on ABC last night. There is no way in the world for a real housing rebound to take place when the majority of Americans do not have the sufficient income to purchase a home. There is no way in the world for a real housing rebound to take place when significantly more of Americans' income will go to taxes, national debt, inflation, etc. There is not a chance in the world of a housing recovery when hedge funds are buying up housing that individuals would like to purchase and driving home prices up artificially. Real estate professionals provide much of the statistical information and who would trust a real estate professional after the last free-fall?

  • This Gold Slam Is A Massive Wealth Transfer From Our Pockets To The Banks  [View article]
    I just finished listening to CNBC's Rick Santelli describe the same scenario. Pretty darn interesting in a very sad way! The drop in value of gold and silver will certainly not discourage me from buying more since I see it as insurance rather than an investment.

  • Charting The Carnage In The Gold, Silver And Mining Space  [View article]
    Something's missing in your article... No one sells unless someone is buying. Who is scarfing-up all this gold and silver at fire sale prices? Just like with stocks, the rationale for people with even a modicum of intelligence is to buy low and sell high.

    Understanding Gold: Currency? Investment? Commodity?... For average people the answer is: None of the above. Gold & Silver are insurance.
