    $80. an ounce for silver is reasonable…if it became $400. an ounce…dollar devaluation–inflation would be killer. I’ll take our current dollar value and $80. silver. Don’t want the $400. silver.

    Okay so the dollar is already in the toilet in terms of inflation the last 30 years. How do house prices HAVE to come down, when the dollar has lost 90% of it’s buying power since the 80s? Seems to me like a fatal system reset has to happen because there are too many factors fighting each other. The Fed isn’t going to taper anything so expect more bond buying, especially after Bernanke heads out.

    I am glad I just inherited a house and it is paid off. And my property tax is only about $1,800 a year. Thanks for the info. God Bless Doug

    Everything you said here is spot on. I dig the way you think.

    correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought that interest rates being high would actually lower the price of precious metals, because high interest rates should encourage saving in cash (US dollars), as the opportunity cost of using the cash to buy PMs would be higher. QE and ZIRP has been a major factor in pushing up the prices of PMs.

    So, you are saying, if I buy a house when interest rates are high, the price of the house will be lowered in value at that time to keep payments at an even keel… so lets say I buy a house for 150k when interest rates are high, and later the interest rates go low… I can then sell the house, the house will be worth about double that, and I can pull in 150k out of that house??

    Yes, today’s fiat dollar at $80-$100 silver an ounce! At $400 or more, world is finish!

    Many holder of treasuries are selling now, because they think the low is in or because they are afraid. Anyway, the FED would have to buy with even more money t. in order to maintain the low i.r..
    That is the prob. with the FED strategy – you need more and more money just to keep the status quo. It is a Ponzi – ok?

    so, instead of going thru what we need to go thru to cut costs and save our economies, we are spending into oblivion for a while so we can continue on living like romans. I know that if we balance the budget we will end up laying off millions and we would go thru a depression but that sounds better than going thru a catastrophe and that’s what is going to happen. creating monster sized debt to carry on the good life will be our undoing.

    If interest rates spike, the cost of borrowing for the Fed will come unsustainable, and the economy will crash. That is the reason they have been holding rates down. There won’t be an economy of the rates are allowed to rise. We must remember the Fed determines what they want the rate to be. If they want to kill off the country, raise rates. If rates do rise, nobody will have money to buy anything and it would collapse on that basis too.

    I believe a reset and world currency is coming, but the big question will be what the fallout will be to the individual citizens. There has already been fallout in Europe so will North America’s turn be coming?

    Good point about profit from precious metals but don’t forget about the 28% capital gains tax! And iChat if it just says at 28% when precious metals go extremely high!

    You need to back that statement up. I’m more than happy to debate. If you make such a bold statement where is your counter argument?? You can decline, I’m fine either way.

    Fabian Calvo thinks rates will remain low for a while yet. The PTB want to re-inflate the housing bubble and raising rates would prevent that.

    Yah, isn’t it funny… Bernanke suddenly needs to go…??? and ole Greenspan was there about 22+ years, but Bernanke suddenly has to get out of Dodge.
    Now there is one issue you need to address in your scenario. If you have 100 ounces of silver and it goes to $200 you have $20,000 dollars. But you have a “capital gains” tax issue. You’ll need to pay tax for “appreciation”. And when $20,000 suddenly appears in your account, there will be a red flag thrown and Obamamachine will sick the dogs.

    There are some people saying this, but last time the correlation was not substantiated, at the time metals were over bought. Ive heard experts say to look at the 1970s in regards to the fact that metals can rise when interest rates rise.

    Supply and demand. The demand is so massive already that once the general public in the west gets into metals because of runaway inflation or interest rates, the supply side will show it’s limits.
