The price-fixing in the gold market is leading to an obvious "squeeze" -- which is becoming more and more difficult for the banksters to hide, even with their bogus, "bullion-ETFs" radically diluting the investor dollars flowing into this sector (see "Even Gold Experts Fooled by Bullion-ETF's"). However, this will be purely a "market event," in that the consequence will be a massive rise in the price of gold and the destruction of the "gold shorts" -- who are sitting with the largest concentration of "short" positions in the history of commodities, but it will have little direct impact on our economies.

In contrast, when the looming silver supply-crisis strikes this will produce a global, industrial crisis. Unlike gold, which must only satisfy investment/monetary demands, silver is becoming an essential raw material of the 21st century global economy. This can be illustrated by simply listing some of the current and future industrial uses of this most precious metal (Check back tomorrow).
Jeff Nielson studied economics for four years at the University of British Columbia, before going on to attain a law degree from that same institution in 1989. He came to the precious metals sector around the middle of last decade as an investor, but quickly decided this was where he wanted to focus his career. After publishing his own, amateur blog for a year, in 2008 he founded Bullion Bulls Canada: a web-site providing information and analysis to precious metals investors. Today, bullionbullscanada.com reaches a global audience of precious metals investors in more than 120 countries.
