Weekly lay-offs in the U.S. rose to their highest level in 2 months, exceeding the highest estimate by the “experts”. This number itself is highly fictionalized, as the actual lay-off numbers are suppressed with phony “seasonal adjustments” – just as the BLS does with its monthly reports.

This has severely limited the investment options and strategies for any prudent investor. Forced not only to “play defense” with our investing but to prepare for two more-or-less opposite events has made precious metals the one asset class which can protect investors from either of these fates.
