Kitco Commentator David Vaughn Comments on Gold

Where to Next?

By David Vaughn June 28, 2006

"Why should you be considering gold now even as we have watched a correction?

Have you noticed housing interest rates climbing this past week? The Fed continues to lose control. The word is that rates will continue to climb until “inflation” can be contained. That is a joke. As if with a flick of a switch the effects of rising energy costs, rising health care costs and every other cost rising can be made to go away with a brush of a magic wand. Maybe Greenspan accomplished magic in days of long ago, but those days are over and never to return again in our generation.

So I keep saying the same thing over and over again?

Yes, because I have to. Rising inflation equals a rising gold price. That is a fact that has proven true since the days of ancient Rome. And if you read enough you will read in every business section that inflation is becoming more of an issue. It has been ignored and kept under the table for a long time now. Yes, I admit that in the past the threat of inflation has been supposedly contained, but this is not the case any longer. "
