A New Buyer is Entering The Gold Market

"I suspect that Japanese pension funds, insurance companies, banks, although they have to buy government bonds as almost a public edict because they can’t place the bonds, but talking to managers, there are switches going into the precious metals market. They are definitely buying up gold. Pension funds are doing that (buying gold). So there will be allocation shifts there."

Ron Paul - A New Beginning

"America is over $16 trillion in debt. The “official” unemployment rate still hovers around 8%. Our federal government claims the right to spy on American citizens, indefinitely detain them, and even assassinate them without trial. Domestic drones fly over the country for civilian surveillance. Twelve million fewer Americans voted in 2012 than in 2008, yet political pundits scratch their heads. It’s not hard to see why, though."

Stephen Leeb - We Need the Silver and You Have to Stop Buying it

"If there is one investment that can possibly rival gold, it’s silver. People don’t realize this, but at some point governments may say to their people, ‘We need the silver and you have to stop buying it.’ When that point comes, silver is likely to be at $150 to $200. So there is still a lot of room in the silver market.”

Jim Rogers is Shorting US Bonds Again


"During the height of the financial crisis, there was a fantastic little exchange between famed investor Hugh Hendry and financial journalist Liam Halligan. In the exchange, which occurred on CNBC, Hugh Hendry laid out, quite clearly, his reasoning for a debt deflation, and why he was confident that QE would not work. Liam Halligan, on the other hand, found it impossible to understand how deflation could occur with such huge increases in base money. Hendry's was a bold call, and it proved correct, but it required an understanding of monetary mechanics that seemed outside the reach of most commentators and pundits at the time.

We play this clip for Jim Rogers, and ask him if he too, has been surprised by the lack of any sever inflation, and the continued pressure on bank balance sheets. We ask him about his "inflationary holocaust" call, and how he feels this is, and will play out. Jim Rogers reveals that he has returned to shorting the US Treasury market."
