Michael Ballanger: A Violent Move Higher In Gold & Silver Prices Is Indeed Coming

by Michael Ballanger, Silver Doctors:

I shall pass along my thoughts on the tenth anniversary of the 2008 bank bailouts, currency chaos and the un-precious metals in no particular order and with no specific agenda. More important, I want to pay tribute to a writer whose work I truly love, Rolling Stone magazine’s Matt Taibbi. Taibbi’s work reminds me of an era-gone-by when reporters actually reported and where “fake news” was at the least an excuse for the originator to be blackballed from the journalistic fraternity and at the worst a jail sentence. The senior editors in the newspaper business demanded that their reporters verified facts by way of constant scrutinization of sources while chasing down leads for days on end in order to allow something controversial to hit the media screens. Matt covered the “Great Financial Crisis” ten years ago and immediately after that, he was the chap that nicknamed Goldman Sacks “a great vampire squid” whose claim to fame and prosperity was how it was “wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”
