Something I realized today. I've seen people over on a silver forum getting all tickled pink that their silver is shooting up in price. And I suppose if you have a few hundred pounds of it you can live quite comfortably. But the more USD's an ounce costs, the less the USD is worth. The value of PM's pretty much remain constant. But in the grand scheme of things, screw the few extra bucks silver holders are making, I'm thinking things are about to get UGLY!
Assuming you are buying stuff with silver.
Wheat - not going up in price.
TV's - not going up in price.
Automobiles - not going up in price.
If there was this crazy "inflation" thing going on, then you'd be all set.
