The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed. Judge yourself by the intention of your actions and by the strength you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.

The people closest to you have been trying to tell you that you have made a difference. That you did change things for the better. The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing that we can ever truly control - whether we are good or evil.


The political triumph of the American Right has been to advance relentlessly the economic interests of the country's richest people, while emphasising a swath of moral, social and foreign policy issues that motivate and certainly distract middle-class and poor voters.

You'll find the answer here.

Link up the evidence that central banks are net buyers of gold and if the facts say I'm wrong I'll happily admit I'm wrong.

As do I, hotairmail. I'll have to rethink.

People with monopolies they can protect using force under laws that they control, don't like competition.

Or even shorter:

Mobs don't like competition.

:D

First result says:

European central banks have become net buyers of gold for the first time in more than two decades,


and was dated September 2011.


So, not exactly representative nor conclusive.

Do you have a direct link to something authoritative or just nutjob sites?

BTW it goes on to say:

The purchases are minuscule compared with the size of the global gold market, but highlight a remarkable turnround from a wave of heavy selling by European central banks.

Do you not want to read different opinions?

If you just want to read stuff that reinforces your views, you probably know where to go.

I don't have the enthusiasm to search the BIS or WGC websites for the raw data to prove it to you. Why isn't a selection of articles from Reuters, Bloomberg or the FT conclusive enough for you?

Up or down...It does not matter to me. The end is not here yet.

So who's view actually needs reinforcing?

I'm sure the poster is capable of answering without your help.

He is not the one complaining about the content being posted.

I object to anyone on here who tries to imply to anyone else they should not post a particular view.

All TMT did was post some info that some people might have found useful. If you don't like it, just ignore it.

You provided a 'search'. It went off and cleverly typed the search. I read the first one which I quoted back to you above.

I asked you if you could not provide a more direct link that you felt proved your point.

You claim a list of sources that do: Reuters, Bloomberg, FT. Well, the FT didn't prove anything. I am loathe to read all the others, especially as presumably you have.

Can you help us all and give one single authoritative link that we can read to prove your point. Clearly a newspaper article is not as good as proper industry source stats but if that is all you have, then please provide that. Otherwise we could all waste a lot of time.

I'm not calling you a liar. It is just that this is a point of contention and I would like to see who is 'right' and under what parameters they have chosen.

Can't you see the glaring contradiction Errol?

On the one hand you're a gold bug, and think 'fiat' a miserable think that needs be converted to gold ASAP.

On the other hand, you say you'll 'jump in' if/ when gold goes lower. With what? :blink:




I'm still really intrigued as to the answer to this question? Any answers yet Errol? We haven't forgotten. :D
