#1. Gold Climbs to $1300, Silver at 30-year High
As I've said, I'm not a gold bug but I do watch it for signs of what's happening in the broader economy. It keeps climbing. That should tell us something about this "recovery".
#2. North and South Korea Close to War, Russian Diplomat Says
It's hard to believe that there was no real "repercussion" after North Korea blatantly sunk a South Korean warship a few months ago. In the old days that was called an act of war. But since North Korea was able to lie their way to a nuke the world community is treating them with kid gloves. Now think of what happens if Iran gets a nuke.
#3. Food Makers Ready to Raise Prices
This hits directly at the core part of every Survivalist/Preppers' life: the food budget. We can get by without a lot of things, but food is not one of them. The solution: buy now at today's prices and stock up as much as you can. Also, develop some self-sufficiency when it comes to food by gardening, etc.
#4. Warren Buffet Says "We're Still in a Recession"
No, you think? We're shedding jobs "unexpectedly" every month. To quote Darth Vader: "Search your feelings.... You know it to be true."
Have a fantastic Friday and weekend! :)
