Interesting column for the most part, but I fail to see how Eduardo Saverin is included. You simply say, "it is generally assumed that he is cut from the same idealistic cloth", but weak accusation like this is no better than Obama saying the creator of the YouTube video (for which he blamed Benghazi), is a "shady character." If you don't have any better evidence to share than your 'general assumption' about somebody, than it makes you look like you are grasping for examples. As far as I can tell Saverin is just the U.S. version of Gérard Depardieu; someone who decided he's not going to take it anymore.

I don't understand how increased bullion sales can indicate more demand because isn't it true that for every buyer there's another seller?
Sounds like you 'really' understood Atlas Shrugged! Yeah right... it's all about not opening doors for old ladies. I hope you didn't spend too much time reading the book, because you didn't get much out of it. I 'had' the greatest respect for Cato, but I have to re-think that opinion now. What an dumb explanation of altruism. I can't explain it any better than Ayn Rand, so this is not intended for the writer of this article, but altruism is when you 'sacrifice', that is when you destroy value. There is no sacrifice when you donate time or money to something or someone worthwhile. It is not altruistic to support and further something of value to you. When even someone at Cato doesn't understand that, we're certainly doomed.
