  1. This new model of the government being the main driver of the economy seems wholly unsustainable, yet, i agree it is all around us... My question is.. how can this be continued? Unless national governments in a command economy type-way kinda control the global system, economically, socially, politically, etc... but ain't this just 1984, improbable maybe, impossible maybe not Seems
  2. Gold and silver may not crash but will surely retrace somewhat at present. I for one am offloading my ill-gotten gains hahaha.... Im not out completely, but i AM out for the time being... the religion is overstated and oversold, methinks time to take some profits.
  3. TBH it is hard to tell what stage of the cycle we are in with Silver and Gold. The previous mega-spike was due to the Hunt brothers trying to corner the silver market and coming a cropper. The way i think of my small stash: as a way to insure, protect, gamble, evade conventional financial processes , and perhaps eventually leave to my children (avoiding TAX on the way). My silver/gold longer-term goal is to slowly but surely stack throughout my lifetime... indeed, i may lose money on S+G over my life-course, however, it will ALWAYS retain some value... and besides i just like it around Chav!
  4. Ok so will have a look at goldmoney and bullionvault... although silver is my core position.
  5. Hi Guys, I have a small physical gold/silver position but would like to expand into gold/silver junior miners, pool accounts, etc... Basically, something that i can jump in-and-out of at quick notice and is not so expensive over spot. The Kitco pool account looks pretty simple... Of couse profits will be plowed into some more physical
  6. Ok thanks, will run through this infomation later on tonight...
  7. I have a small amount of gold/silver coins and am looking at the kitco pool accounts for easy buy in/sell out of PMs... any good? or any other relevant suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  8. Case in point - my old man gets a free car from the state (due to mum on borderline disability payments), plus they get free bus passes... just in case the car breaks down i suppose
  9. This i will never understand. Give the young working person on NMW, underemployed, unemployed, etc... the free or reduced travel costs so they do not have to absorb this out of a low wage/low benefits... encouraging productivity and working.
  10. There is not a shortage of houses in the UK, what we have is spatial inequalities in housing. For instance, many boomers may own 2/3+ houses, older people living in huge 5 bedroomed houses, etc... We have enough houses/rooms and space for us all to live comfortably, however, the spread of housing space/stock is very uneven :angry:
  11. Yes, the article is a little dated. However, the point i was exploring was silver as a potential long-term investment. From the article: 'silver to rise from around $13 per ounce to some $130 in the next eight years, making it potentially the investment opportunity of a lifetime'. and... 'if the rest of the world catches up with America in terms of mineral consumption, the world will run out of silver in just ten years, according to New Scientist'. and... 'In 1900, analysts reckon there were 12 billion ounces of silver in the world, enough to keep everyone in fancy thimbles. By 1990, commodities research firm CPM Group estimates this had fallen to around 2.2 billion ounces; now there are only 300 million ounces of refined silver left'. So, could silver possibly be an excellent long-term investment considering its industrial applications, its future scarcity and unique properties???
  12. From the article: 'Direct investment is certainly possible, but given the relatively low silver price, it’s fairly impractical; a 1,000 troy ounce bar weighs 31 kilograms, for example – not an asset you can easily store under the mattress. In the UK, VAT is also charged on physical silver, making this option expensive too'. Oh deary, deary me
  13. Sorry if this has been posted already, moneyweek very bullish on silver as an investment: http://www.moneyweek.com/investments/precious-metals-and-gems/why-every-portfolio-needs-a-silver-bullet.aspx (not sure if link is working)
  14. Some of the biggest twats i know have never had a hard knock in their lives, and it shows in the way they conduct themselves in a day-to-day fashion. Selfish, rude, arrogant and materialistic individuals. If things reset by a large degree... these people are in big trouble as they 'suddenly' realise everything they believe in is a croc o s**t
  15. In my mind if you can eat and heat your house your o.k. really! If there is an unavoidable storm, so be it. Another structure will rise to replace the old one and a different set of rules, norms, practices, expectations, etc... will take form. As the present structure is beyond repair, just chill until worker bee labour is required again (in whatever form that may take).
