Inflation is already here. What do the rising oil prices tell you? Just the effect of oil prices will translate into higher prices for various products and services we consume in this economy. The real impact of all this money printing will come and hit us a day in the future. Gold and Silver are your best hedge against the continued devaluation of fiat currenices by the governments of the world. As I have noted several times before the charts for the precious metals look gorgeous -- even more so than the metals themselves!
