    It looks like they're intentionally trying to create inflation. To what end, I know not.

    I heard on the radio today that the gold market is dropping.

    Nope, its been increasing all month. Now over $900, and likely to go much higher. It seems the forces that were keeping it down shortly after the financial collapse are starting to wane.

    That's interesting, Risen. I did hear the opposite. Wonder who's giving us the news and why it is conflicting. . .

    Ooyy neeh.. They better give me some of it if they're printing that much. I thought for sure I'd have my new pony by now.

    I'd read that the gold market was being manipulated by banks basically 'printing' IOU-style "shares of gold" notes and selling them at full value as if they were real gold (basically leveraging or short-selling their own supply). That would certainly drive the price down. Problem is that can only go so far before folks start demanding the banks deliver on the real metal, at which point the price will shoot up in a real hurry (ala "short-squeeze").

    Well, I'm way over my head in the field of economics. But our conflicting information sent me googling. And I discovered that it wasn't so easy to say one way or another depending on whose set of charts I was looking at. Internet! Guess I'd have to know more before I was able to research it accurately.

    My question is, how long before we start to feel the corresponding inflation?

    I have a feeling that it's probably too late to easily get your hands on actual gold (and not that paper crap), so I'd like to know how much time I have to research other strategies to protect myself from inflation.
