Comment: Consumer Optimism

Consumer Optimism

If consumers become optimistic, they'll start consuming, and the prices of goods will jump.

One thing holding prices down right now is "going-out-of-business" sales.

A whiff of inflation in prices will cause a stampede to buy tangible goods and gold.

If the economy "improves" even on paper (not in reality), gold will go up. The inflation we've been talking about has already happened.

What do you think?
