Look at the dysfunction all around you. Homelessness. College grad can't find jobs. Few jobs that are full time and providing benefits. Rising mortgage rates that will once again put home ownership out of reach for 1st time buyers. Rising energy costs. Rising health care costs. So many babies born out of wedlock. And the govt printing a trillion dollars a yr to keep it going. Is the dollar safe? Might the Chinese and Russians want to change the fact that the U.S. can print the world's reserve currency? Precious metals might be the only real money. Everybody should have some and SLV is a leveraged way to do it. Perhaps some are catching on.
