What I find disturbing is the huge bounce upward in the dollar. Geithner makes crazy announcements like he's discovered some new accounting gimmicks to stave off defaulting on America's debt until August even though officially the debt ceiling will be reached in 10 days...or less. Then, for good measure, Geithner proposes that Congress extend America's credit card limit by a whopping $2 trillion. And how does the dollar respond? The dollar gets all jacked up and vaults higher. And so how does this insanity work out over time? The answer is found in history. Fiat currencies have always and forever failed. Silver and gold have prospered.
