A few years ago, somebody was talking about the FOFOA blog on Zerohedge. I searched it, found it, and I could not stop reading it.
It's not an easy read. Bring your A game comprehension skills with you.
This is a site that has been up for only 5 years. It is nearly impossible to get 5.5 million hits on anything unless it's porn. This is not porn. This is some of the most intelligent, introspective and revealing commentary I have ever found on the importance and vast mystery of gold.
That's what makes it even more amazing. His blogs can be enormous.
He does not talk about silver or platinum - he does however embed a music vid here and there. So the 5. 5 million hits at this place are people who are.....get this....READING! Engaged, intelligent readers asking articulate questions. Not so oddly, the writer will not reveal himself. I find this lack of qualifying credentials and therefore pre judgments- refreshingly unnecessary. Prima facie writing. Rarely will you see any kind of argument here.
He posted something the other night which I believe to be the quintessential explanation for why our country will have a hyper inflation event and what's more, he is looking forward to it as the only thing that will rid us of this enormous debt.
He simply does not know the duration. But if you are living on a fixed income, without gold or silver to trade when a hyper inflation event occurs- this might be a miserable time for you. A few ounces of gold during a hyper inflation event- might just pay the mortgage off.
If you haven't done so already- it might be worth your time to take a look. I am gonna link that hyperinflation piece. http://fofoa.blogspot.com/2013/08/my-candid-view-part-1.html
