Melman on Gold & Silver
August 2017 by Leonard Melman
We have heard much “tough talk” through the years regarding reining in the regulatory excesses of government agencies in the past, but little action has followed those words. Perhaps we will finally see a genuine move away from excessive regulation.
Perhaps the heart of our pro-gold thesis is this consideration: governments are inherently inefficient, they attempt to provide services far beyond their genuine fiscal ability and these trends result in deficit financing, growing debt levels and ultimate “watering” down of currency values.
All of these negatives have finally begun to erode bullishness on Wall Street and the financial markets began to look wobbly at best and dangerously weak at worst.
...as a holder of contrarian points of view, I am somewhat delighted to see the recent enormous surge in published negative commentaries regarding gold's future.
