Claiming that the 'price' of metals is moving upwards is misleading. Metal is worth the same as it's always been. In fact, it is the value of currencies that are plummeting.
Governments are frantically printing cash, which decreases the value of that cash. In fact this is a means by which the government STEALS from everyone with savings. Let's say you have 20 thousand dollars socked away in a bank account. The actual number of dollars stays the same... it's protected against theft in a bank vault, right? HOWEVER, a few years from now when you take that money out and try to spend it, you might find that its WORTH is gone. Instead of buying a new car, it might buy you a cart full of groceries.
