Dunno about that, David.

Silver prices are one good reason. I don't relish the prospect of buying quantities of silver in dollars any time soon. I'm inclined to think it's going to get worse.

In the future, I rather think the stuff is going to go directly out of the ground and into country X's central bank before any emulsion maker ever gets a chance to lay hands on it.
