The Sweet Smell of Investing in Silver and Gold

The Daily Reckoning

It's hard to believe that more than ten years have gone by since we began writing The Daily Reckoning out of a Paris office back in July of 1999?

Since then, a lot has changed. We have seen the dot com boom and bust... a massive expansion of credit...real estate mania and meltdown?and epic highs and lows in the markets.

Nothing about the past ten years has been boring. And we have been there throughout, trying to help readers make some sense out of our global economy. And hopefully providing a few laughs along the way.

In short, we pen The Daily Reckoning each day -- for free -- to show you how to live well in uncertain times. We aim to make each article the most entertaining 15-minute read of your day.

    That’s “Du Pont” Bart! His granddad had a chemical lab named after him at Du Pont! Bart was born in Wlimington, Du Pont stronghold! Du Pont is one of the 2 largest Silver Users Association companies, Bart is likely to eventually say, “silver price manipulation found on the part of LONGS!” His CFTC agency has had at least 3 Commissioners address the Silver Users Association in glowing terms! There was a Du Pont on the board of the second United States Bank in the 1830’s! That was the direct forerunner of the Federal Reserve! These people hate silver worse than any of us hate a wasp in our armpit! http://www.nosilvernationalization.org
