    HawkHybrid got a reaction from JCRJM in Ted Butler   
    there is no proof of this. jp morgan have bought on the market
    a sizeable amount of silver. what is not known is whether/how
    much of it is for clients. it's like saying byb bought £1000's
    worth of silver in the last group order, which we know is
    obviously incorrect.
     
    here's a fact. if you bought bullion silver in britain(£) in the
    last 7 years there was no time that you could have turned a
    profit selling back to dealers unless it was bought during the
    low in late 2015 and sold at the peak in the first half of 2016.
    in 7 years and the window of opportunity is not even a year.
     
    I guess no silver pumper would tell you that fact when they
    talk about silver's potential.

    Yeah, but community reputation is probably not the best measure of reliability for a source. I think mine is higher than @HawkHybrid but that's probably because I like posting photos of my new acquisitions on the "Today I Received" thread. I don;t kid myself that I know more about the silver market than HH nor that courting popularity on a forum would mean being more accurate or knowledgeable on the subject matter ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    my impression of the group order is that it's designed as
    a sort of club together of people with similar interests to
    save money on shipping(overall).
    does byb charge for his time to organise the group order?
    yes, indirectly via youtube videos as you've stated. is this
    a secret that byb hides from those in the group order?
    on the group order thread byb gives the impression that
    he'll be doing a youtube unboxing when group orders
    arrive, for all to see.
    for newer forum members who don't have a lot of
    knowledge and money to start with, the group order is
    a good start. it's cheaper for small amounts of silver,
    your order gets a glancing check by someone who has
    some experience with silver, it's relatively transparent.
    there's nothing amazing about it, but then there's nothing
    obviously wrong with it compared to other options that
    are currently available.

    you can't generalise like that. arcata is an old mine. the areas

    silver increasing in value means it can be exchanged for more
    of other goods and services. silver increasing in price means
    that it's nominal value increased(this might be due to inflation
    across all goods and services, ie it won't actually buy more
    stuff). there will always be buyers and sellers in a working
    market.

    HawkHybrid got a reaction from ManWithNoName in Silver Slam-a-Rama: A Poised Silver Bull?   
    the pumpers need to state a time for when the silver bull
    market will happen. it wasn't 2012, or 2013, or 2014...
    (keep counting)
    imo entirely out to mislead people to buy from them now
    when it could be many years before the silver bull market
    might begin.
    fundamentals is what lost silver stackers the opportunity
    to more productively make use of their money for 7 years
    and counting. fundamentals dating back for almost 6000
    years, so a mere decade of being wrong is nothing in the
    bigger picture.

    HawkHybrid reacted to KDave in Wealth Tax   
    Defence of the realm and policing of law is governments primary role. Some form of tax is needed for that. That's about it though.
    Everything else being paid for by the state today can be provided by a market. It would not be evenly distributed, but it isn't when the state is involved either so it's a choice between perceptions of 'fair'. Sweat of a man's brow to keep. Or to be taken and shared. That's it.
    Second issue is inequality is directly linked to crime and corruption. Government intervention and redistribution has done nothing to curtail this in the UK, arguably policy has made inequality worse. Two separate problems there that government does a bad job at solving through taxation. 
    Which evil do we want. Low tax and more market, or high tax and less market.

    chartist price gold in usd(currently) cos they want to know how

    eg if £ drops by 10% versus $ and many other currencies. (for

    buy what was previously priced at £1.00. let's say gold goes up
