    We already knew that central banks have preferred gold to dollars, and that they’re even selling their gold for cash; now, according to Lawson’s data, it seems that those central banks prefer almost anything to dollars.

    I heard the same thing about a year ago...

    If they didn't do it then, I doubt they'll do it now....

    Just last week, America’s debt lept $166 billion in a single day. That one-day run-up is greater than the entire U.S. annual deficit in 2007. And Americans, the world’s consumers, continue much of the behavior that helped the U.S savings rate drop so low.


    another Greek tragedy in the making.....?

    That denotes a general mistrust of currency in general, not just the dollar.

    No.
    Chilean peso, Br. Real, Aust $, Canadian $
    Ya see. Safe money is in the hands of PRODUCERS, which you aren't.

    I suppose IsNtReals currency could be safe since The Chosen, self chosen, will get a Goy bailout at any cost.
