If gold is dead for now it means the bigger threat is

deflation.

Gold was the last to inflate. It started in 2001, after the dot.com bust. The housing market rose and fell, but gold rose, and never fell for the past dozen years.

Now that they've gotten the stock market and the housing market bubbles restarted, gold has fallen out of favor as the investment vehicle of choice. There are fads and fashion in "investing," (if you can call it that anymore) just as there are in eyeglass, necktie and dress styles.

The serious threat is an economic collapse, and I think all of this war posturing is the diversion. This is the sleight of hand. As the economy implodes, everyone's eyes will be on the brightly lit tracers reigning down across Asia, as broadcast on CNN.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
