Once one starts to understand metals, one starts to look at economics and finance in a new way. It’s not that gold is becoming more valuable, it’s that the dollar is becoming less valuable. This fundamental understanding is key when assessing what is really going on economically.
Crony capitalists and central banks hate precious metals. Unlike fiat money (what we have now) it can’t just be created on a computer at the Federal Reserve with a keystroke. Silver and gold over millenia have held value.
Silver, being the poor man’s gold is something most people can aquire fairly readily and every person who seeks to amass wealth should have at least a fundamental understanding of it.
