A few years back, as a new entrant into the world of precious metals, I was extremely grateful for the education I received via this forum, not only through the medium of open and confronting discussion, but also through the reference material provided (e.g. this thread (http://forums.silverseek.com/showthread.php?t=1734)). As a new entrant into precious metals investing, it was the nature of money I found at once most disturbing and most important to comprehend.

For those who have not yet had the opportunity to understand the nature of money, you may find the following references useful.

A useful book on the subject is the Rich Dad Poor Dad book on investing in gold and silver by Michael Maloney (sp?). I recommend this one to novices as it is a very readable introduction to the history of fiat currencies and bullion.

Thanks for that, ..Phat. It was well worth the refresh and is highly recommended for anyone wanting a better understanding of money and the role of the banking industry in your serv. . er. . bond. . . er. . enslav. . er. . life.

I found it insightful that while money reform was promoted at the end, it was basically admitted that nothing could be changed from within. I guess that leaves revolution or catastrophe as the only paths for change.

Which clarifies the role of Silver and Gold as the vessels for transporting wealth across such discontinuities.

Great video.
