Melman on Gold & Silver
September 2019 by Leonard Melman
For “hard money” advocates, this has been a remarkable month. Gold has risen by more than $100, silver has begun to surge, and the headlines are full of news items quite capable of raising public concerns to crisis levels.
When governments are hit by a barrage of such economic news, they usually react by attempting to stimulate economic activity by spending money, as some might say, “like drunken sailors”…
One of the largest conundrums we would point out is the matter of rising interest rates starting to take place in several nations.
On a personal note, very little has bothered me quite as much as the fact that some on the political left are crying “foul” about the fact that Secretary Clinton may have (the outcome is still slightly uncertain at press time) gained more popular votes than the President-elect and therefore the election result is “wrong.”
As an employer, every mining operation, large or small, is responsible for protecting the safety and health of its employees. Safety is also good business. An effective safety and health program can save $4 to $6 for every $1 invested. It’s the right thing to do, and doing it right pays off in lower costs, increased productivity, and higher employee morale.
