Yes, but the question is when and at what level. It took Paul Volcker to restore faith in paper money last time around.

[b.t.w. In Marc Faber's newsletter today, he favours silver over gold - he was also one of the people advising buying gold years ago]
Silver often follows Gold, but more volatile, as it has also industrial usage.

I've been researching & buying both since 2005, and there is much discussion about the gold silver ratio. It's currently just over 60:1 - which is high. Silver seems relatively cheap.

Re: 2009: Where to invest ? ?

Morgan Stanley just released a very negative report on the UK (and thus sterling): http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/e...s-in-2010.html
Quote:
Morgan Stanley said Britain’s travails are one of three “surprises” to expect in 2010. The other two are a dollar rebound, and strong performance by pharmaceutical stocks.
There's also this:

The UK could go either way. But it could be pretty bad.

The Telegraph is reporting that the sole purpose of the Pre-Budget Report (PBR) is to delay a credit rating downgrade.

Quote:
This was a pre-Budget report (PBR) with one key purpose: to put off the threat of a credit rating downgrade and fiscal crisis – at least until after the election. It has succeeded – but only temporarily.
Note that towards the end of the article, it suggests that some of the figures appear to defy the laws of mathematics.
