The money will go where everybody else isn't, and the greatest amount of profit can be had. If people go into gold, gold will go down. If people invest in housing, then housing will crash. If people hoard dollars, then we will have hyperinflation. Get it? The super rich (I'm not talking about the ordinary rich, btw), get money by manipulating the market to their benefit.
Too bad I can't post a link here. But it is about what a DHS insider said about metals dropping. If it continues to drop, then we should be worried. It may be a prelude to both a metal and dollar drop, and all heck breaking out.
