Melman on Gold & Silver
February 2018 by Leonard Melman
Putting it all together, we have indications that the petroleum price increases could continue and we believe that if that is the case, the impact on precious metals would be positive.
...for the most part, visible price inflation has remained dormant for the most of that period of time. This state of affairs would appear to contradict both monetary history and typical cause and effect reasoning. Even the Fed has expressed some surprise and concern regarding the matter.
Many gold and silver observers have been more than slightly concerned regarding the lack of any sustained rally...
...this debacle may easily lead to disenchantment with government programs in general and politicians of all stripes in particular. Historically, that kind of unrest has been positive for precious metals markets.
Another area of growing international concern for business and industry is the recent astonishing proliferation of new government regulations and laws. Despite the presumably good intentions behind these measures it is now becoming apparent that they are imposing true costs to our economic society. The sheer variety of these laws and regulations is mind-boggling.
Well, we are now almost two months into the new Biden Administration (as of our mid-March press deadline) and there most certainly have been some changes in direction from the preceding Trump years.
