Melman on Gold & Silver
April 2019 by Leonard Melman
I believe this is a powder-keg waiting to explode down the road—with potentially devastating effects on society—but positive implications for gold and silver.
...controversy and animosity seem to be steadily increasing, quite possibly to the benefit of our precious metals as gold is now resting comfortably above $1,300—the highest level in more than two years as of mid-February.
• Is this a good time to invest in gold and silver?
There is no question the economy will not always be as good as it is now. There is also no doubt that someday the lack of exploration and the ore in existing mines running out will come home to roost.
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.
If the costs of financing the national debt increase in a manner described in this study, that should, in our opinion, be regarded as a long-term plus for the precious metals.
