The article is:
The lack of understanding of why IT IS IMPERATIVE TO HAVE GOLD right now in this article and many of the other comments here, explains a lot of why the people of the U.S. and other countries have allowed their guv'mints to get them into this financial disaster.
I won't bother to explain it here, but will instead refer you to the one man who CLEARLY KNOWS what is going on and why.
His name is JIM SINCLAIR and his website is JSMINESET.COM.
You should read it EVERY DAY and BELIEVE WITH YOUR ENTIRE BEING what he is telling you.
MarketWatch and many of the anti gold idiots who comment here attacked me when I ran one of the most successful groups on the MarketWatch Community, GOLDTRADER'S GROUP.
I have since been posting free charts as close to real time as possible, a comments blog for informative articles, and a talkbacktogoldtrader blog.
All you have to do is Google GOLDTRADER to find us.
I am 65 years old and have been trading gold since 1973, so I have been through all the 1970-80s markets and have seen it all.
OUR COUNTRY IS BANKRUPT!
As is most of the world that has allowed themselves to be dependent on the U.S. DOLLAR which has been debased and devalued to the point of worthlessness.
The only thing that is keeping most economies running at the moment is UNENDING PRINTING OF PAPER MONEY which, when it finally permeates the markets, will COLLAPSE ALL PAPER MONEY that isn't completely backed BY GOLD.
If you don't have physical gold right now, you are going to die in the streets soon when the violence starts like you are beginning to see in Greece and other areas of the world where the money becomes worthless and all goods become scarce or non-existent.
The CRIMINALS running the U.S. Guv'mint are leading you into a hell you will not be able to imagine.
It's time for the citizens of the world to take back their governments and acknowledge their losses, which are great and very painful, and restore their medium of exchange to gold and silver or currencies that are completely 100% BACKED BY GOLD.
Anything else will allow the shysters to, once again, debase the medium of exchange and STEAL from those who think it still has consistent value.
Debasing currencies by over printing them causes HYPERINFLATION which is the worst of all taxes.
You have been warned...WAKE UP AND PROTECT YOURSELVES WITH GOLD!
