Ranting Andy Hoffman joined us for his famous Monday Rant. We discussed the issue of record US gold exports. This statistic confirmed what we all knew and that is that the US is getting poorer by the day. While we may no longer be on a gold standard, some parts of the world do consider this "barbarous relic" to have certain universal monetary characteristics, that not even the US Government can change. And it is those very same countries that have been on a precious metals buying spree for the past 10 years. And while we're on the topic of who's got the gold, Germany's high court just ordered an audit of all their off-shore holdings. The results could be interesting. What's your thought?
