This is a blog about the strange and secret world of precious metals. The content varies, aims for enlightenment and is meant for investors, collectors, preppers and the common man. Personally, I got a dual perspective on gold: Love and hate. Gold is valuable because we believe it is valuable. 100 million people get a living from the metal. However, digging useless gold out of the earth is causing human and ecological damage on a scale the world could do fine without.
