For What It’s Worth (Section from Charles Butler's newsletter...'A Pfennig for Your Thoughts')… This article came to me yesterday from long time associate, Doug Casey, who talks about something that I’ve hinted at for some time now, and that is people are finally waking up and seeing that everything is no hunky dory in the economy, and that article can be found here: www.internationalman.com
Or, here’s your snippet: “As the Great Unravelling progresses, we shall be seeing many negative developments, some of them unprecedented.
Only a year ago, the average person was still hanging on to the belief that the world is in a state of recovery, that, however tentative, the economy was on the mend.
And this is understandable. After all, the media have been doing a bang-up job of explaining the situation in a way that treats recovery as a general assumption. The only point of discussion is the method applied to achieve the recovery, but the recovery itself is treated as a given.
However, as thorough a distraction as the media (and the governments of the world) have provided, the average person has begun to recognise that something is fundamentally wrong. He now has a gut feeling that, even if he is not well-versed enough to describe in economic terms what is incorrect in the endless chatter he sees on his television, he now senses that the situation will not end well.
I tend to liken his situation to someone who suddenly finds all the lights off in his house. He stumbles around in the dark, trying to feel his way. Although he can picture in his mind what the layout of his house is, he is having trouble navigating, often bumping into things. This is similar to the attempt to see through the media and government smokescreens during normal times.”
Chuck again… Doug goes on to explain that everything starts out slow, like the recognition of things not being right, and then come on with a bang! So, be ready for the bang! Got Gold?
