Coordinated Central Bank Actions For One More Kick Of The Can

Loving the last line of this post from Jim Sinclair:

Coordinated Central Bank Actions For One More Kick Of The Can
Posted By Jim Sinclair On September 2, 2012 (8:31 pm) In General Editorial

My Dear Friends,

Monty Guild, a friend of mine for more than forty years, is the most honest and capable man, in my opinion, in money management.

I respect Monty’s feelings on many matters, certainly the macro picture. Monty, like I, believes it is possible that coordinated central bank actions in the USA, EU, Japan and China are being discussed. The economic problems are so severe, so international, so global, so entwined, so insoluble and still caused primarily by the greed of 1990 to present finance in the form of OTC derivatives that only coordinated global action can kick this can one more time.

Gold is truly going to and through $3500. The gold business is the best business to be in.
