Why cannot people grasp the simple fact that when a debt cannot be re payed, the holders of the debt (savers) are left holding rapidly depreciating promissory notes - eventually worth nothing.

 

Water will not run uphill and fiat currencies do not appreciate in purchasing power when the issuer can and will print.

What is the inflation adjusted high price of gold? $2300? I heard that figure at least 3 years ago, so it must need revising upwards. And what about all the inflation in the pipe, or baked in the cake, yet to come?

For cr@p's sake, will it ever stop??

 

I wanted to buy some soon!!

 

My thoughts exactly. I'm really pissed off now.

 

Still think we must have a correction soon (a meaningful one), unless this really IS IT.

Never seen you worry so much about the value of paper before :rolleyes:

 

Seriously though, I reckon a big spike up next couple of months and then back down to where we are now in the summer, before the big one in a year or so.

 

So in the grand scheme of things it makes no odds unless everything goes completely mad max.

 

Will you sleep safely with all that paper though?

I am somewhat suspicious too that we will see some exhaustion soon. I can only hope so. If not, I will have to bite the bullet and will buy and all-time high.

I won't hold on to this cr@p for too long, even if I have to buy an all-time high.

HI Schaublin,

 

I have stopped educating people about choices in life. I think some people get it, some do not. As much as your intent is noble, if you read back the GEI gold threads, you will notice that people on here have not changed their stance. Those who are stuck in their beliefs are still the same. Nothing has changed, the only thing has is the price of gold.

Some argue that some waters run downhill more slowly than others, hence they like to hold on to them. :blink: (It's still not running uphill, right? :lol:)

isn't it more like $5000 using the real inflation figures and not using government ones?

These here are the official CPI-numbers used on the London AM Fixing.

If you believe Martin Armstrong 2011 is the big one.

  • 2011.45 (June 13 1/4, 2011)

If I was in his situation, I think I would have gone loco a long time ago... It doesn't mean he's wrong, in fact history suggests he's right.

 

Martin Armstrong is becoming increasingly unhinged

I take it you mean about 3pm. I can't see anything higher than $1398.02/t.oz, but BV does a bit of rounding when looking at it retrospectively, so I guess that's why I can't see it.

 

It was a brief spike earlier in the afternoon.

HI Schaublin,

I was mulling over why it is that so many people, some obviously intelligent, try to create complicated models to explain why QE , massive debt and de-industrialisation of the West is not a problem and how this complicated economy can be tweaked and tinkered with and it will all come right.

 

 

Perhaps the reason people try to create these models is simply an unwillingness/inability to admit that 500 years of Western hegemony is ending.

I think the nuts and bolts of it is people are lazy and they lack confidence. They find it easier to believe what the TV tells them to believe and they simply don't want to be ridiculed for discussing fringe theories. After all, the US can't collapse because they have Disney World and stealth bombers. Can it..?

 

A family member said she had complete faith in the government, as there are extremely intelligent people running this country. I gave up at this point, after all it was these intelligent self serving people that created this mess. You can take a horse to water but....
