Global Silver Production Fits One Silver Pyramid

Global Silver Production Fits One Silver Pyramid

The Federal Reserve was conjuring up enough dollars for QE to buy the equivalent of one silver pyramid every 6 days in the Bernanke era.

The US military spends the equivalent of one silver pyramid about every 8 days and the official US national debt increases by one silver pyramid every 7 days. Borrowing and “printing” this many dollars cannot continue forever. Silver and gold will remain valuable long after the dollar has been inflated to near worthlessness.

Aside from the passage of time, the preconditions for a physical silver shortage haven’t changed much since 2011. The world produces a certain amount of silver and after deducting what’s left over after industrial and total fabrication demand, there is a remarkably small residual amount available for investment.
