From Keith Weiner: "You can't eat gold." The enemies of gold often unleash this little zinger, as if it dismisses the idea of owning gold and indeed the whole gold standard. It is a fact, you cannot eat gold. However, it dismisses nothing.

What Are The Supply & Demand Fundamentals Of Gold Telling Us? (GLD)

From Keith Weiner: There is an interesting feature of our very marvel of a modern monetary system. We have written about this before. It sets up a conflict, between the perverse incentive it administers, and the desire to protect yourself in the long term.

Finally Time To Buy Gold’s Dip? (GLD)

From Keith Weiner: The price of gold fell another ten bucks and that of silver another 28 cents. Perspective: if you're waiting for the right moment to buy, the market is offering you a better deal than it did last week (literally, the price of gold is a 7.2% discount to the fundamental vs. 4.6% last week).

Time To Upgrade Gold (GLD)

From Keith Weiner: Interest is the only force that can pull gold out of private hoards and into circulation. We have said many times, that interest is the regulator of flow in the gold standard.

Why The Fed Continues To Punish Savers With Low Interest Rates (TLT)

From Keith Weiner: A reader asked us this week about the personal savings rate. Most people can sense that something is wrong if the rate is in a long-term falling trend, or if it falls too low (whatever level that may be). We argue that falling savings is part of the larger process of capital destruction. And unfortunately, one should expect falling savings rates when there is falling yield purchasing power.
