This year the analysts were right, we see inflation all around us. Gas pumps oil prices, food prices (smaller portions in some cases for the same price). Yes it's true that there is some god news with jobs and the industrial expansin BUT, the public is left behind, the private sector hasn't been growing. Unemployment not that great either. The Feds won't move on interest rates untill the end of 3011. Meanwhile inflation will continue to rise. Gold will shine. Just bought a brick.
