    Everyone asserts that there can be no radical (by today's market rate) upheaval in the price of precious metals, and yet the counterpoint is still:


    what defines the limits of (the ongoing) devaluation of the dollar?

    Since this is a money/investment thread (of sorts), let me do the math

    At $4500 an hour, that's $75 a minute. At 90 seconds per "incident" that's
    $112.50 per said "incident"

    or

    dinner for 2 with a couple drinks at "the olive garden"
    $75 including tip
    movie for 2 with popcorn and soda
    $45

    repeat for second date, maybe 3rd

    forget it.... can you get me the phone number of the Blue Waffle?

    At least read the article and make an intelligent rebuttal to the arguments on why this will happen.

    To just dismiss it out of hand suggests ignorance rather than an honest intellectual examination into the argument.

    That isn't an answer.
    Its a simple question.... and for those here so confident that they can see into the economic future, it should be beyond simple.

    With all the bail-ins, bi-lateral currency agreements, printing to infinity (QE), gutting of the manufacturing base in this country, financial fraud, and the list goes on, to think that US dollar denominated assets are going to preserve wealth, is well, a joke.

    And gold holders will laughing when the punch line is delivered.

    Yeah, I'm sure the guys with a couple of pounds of gold buried in their back yard are going to be the next Gates.

    2 lbs. about 32 ounces, and at $55K an ounce, that is close to $1.7 million. Not quite Bill Gates, but not a bad return on a $50K investment (insurance policy).

    Keep up the mocking!! It only makes the final end game more enjoyable. I can laugh and laugh at your expense, literally.

    "At least read the article and make an intelligent rebuttal to the arguments on why this will happen."

    Why waste time on such silliness?

    Actually, I don't expect anyone to read it. I am just collecting names so I know who to laugh at when gold goes to $55,000.

    Seriously. Talking to people on GT about gold is like talking to liberals about guns. They just don't get it.

    So I expect to convert no one. I expect only mocking, derision, and laughter. But I do it only to say I told you so. Just a little game I felt like playing on y'all.

    There are actually a few goldbugs here so I am just preaching to choir with them, but for the most part, the above holds true.

    So since your whole theory is based on massive dollar devaluation / hyperinflation

    That $1.7 million will buy you 50 pounds of rice and a few cans of beans.

    How much better off are you that anyone else?

    Your reading comprehension skills are limited. I said that gold would rise while other prices stay the same. So, purchasing power is maintained.

    If we do get hyperinflation in the U.S., then maybe we get $500,000 gold!

    This post is kind of like that guy with the bad tire that almost killed his precious wife.

    Your ability to think must be limited.


    It is all still all relative - only an idiot (you qualify) would think gold can go to $500,000 while a can of beans is still $3.

    :dunno:
