Silver: One Investor Away from Implosion

Silver: One Investor Away from Implosion

Posted with permission and written by Rory Hall, The Daily Coin (CLICK FOR ORIGINAL)

he past three years we have seen the price of silver get beat down to new lows. We have also witnessed demand for physical silver continually escalate. During this three year run the U.S. Mint has stopped sales of American Silver Eagles, the most popular silver coin in the world, on three different occasions. The last time sales were shut down, in June 2015 and the U.S. Mint has rationed sales since production resumed in July 2015. As of this writing that would be ten months of rationed sales with no end in sight.

Virtually all of the signs that we would expect to pop up during the early chapters of a major economic crisis have now appeared, and yet most Americans still appear to be clueless about what is happening.

Even I was surprised when the government reported that retail sales had actually fallen in March. Consumer spending is a very large part of our economy, and so if consumer spending is slowing down already that certainly does not bode well for the rest of 2016. The following comes from highly respected author Jim Quinn...

The Ivy League educated "expert" economists expected March retail sales to increase by 0.1%. They only missed by $6 billion, as retail sales FELL by 0.3%.
