$10 million in Silver Bars strewn across the Interstate

http://silverunderground.com

An armored trucked crashed along Interstate 81 and spilled out its cargo of $10 million in silver bars. I thought those armored bank trucks were made of sterner stuff, but carrying that much weight, I guess it’s more likely the silver broke out than the crash broke in. I bet a truck carrying $10 million in paper would have been just fine.It’s a pretty good metaphor. If you think of the controlled economy as an armored truck, when this thing crashes paper money crashes with it, but silver breaks free. It has economic momentum.

Turkey Skirts Iran Sanctions with Gold

http://silverunderground.com

The Wall Street Journal report calls the Turkish gold payments a “loophole in Western sanctions” which ban Iran from receiving payments in US dollars, but it’s far more than that. A “loophole” at least operates within the framework of the policy. Abandoning the US dollar to circumvent the entire policy is a thumb in the eye to US legitimacy, and the global banking system.

China plots against the dollar hegemony

http://www.examiner.com

According to a leaked cable the increase in China’s gold reserves is intended to “kill two birds with one stone.” Firstly, it serves as a model for other countries to encourage reserving more gold, and therefore less USD. Second, it strengthens the Chinese currency, the Renminbi, so that it can begin to replace the declining USD as the world reserve currency. All of this spells bad news for the American economy.

The Market Value of Gold and Silver if the Dollar Fails?

If the dollar failed tomorrow and gold and silver took its place...Heck Yes!! Is it safe to say that the buying power of an ounce of silver or gold would match that of their current spot prices. In other words 1 ounce of silver would buy about $19.00 worth of goods and gold would buy apx. $1,200.00 worth of goods. Or would their values change dramatically therefore their buying power would be worked out overtime by the market.
