Again, I want to emphasize my point.
If silver or gold were properly priced, there would be as many people wanting to SELL for today's price as those wanting to BUY for today's price. But when the price something is artificially low (for whatever reason: psychology, manipulation, inertia, etc.) then you end up with SCARCITY of that item. Too many customers chasing too few bargains.
Anything that is selling, today, for less than twice last year's price is basically a BARGAIN and smart people know it.
If you had to sink your money into physical things -- say you knew your money would be toilet paper by next week -- what items would you want to buy first? Practical stuff, right?
So my theory is: these practical items -- stuff everyone needs -- will be the CANARY IN THE COALMINE that our currency is actively plunging in value.
If a store started selling something -- a useful, practical item that EVERYONE NEEDS -- for 50% off, there would certainly be a shortage of supply. They'd restock in the morning, and it would be sold out (again) within hours. Because the price is 1/2 of what it should be.
And you know the you-know-hews are doing this. Buying up land, real estate, materials, etc.
