Fix It Again Timmy's picture

"I remember a German farmer expressing as much in a few words as the whole subject requires; "money is money, and paper is paper."
All the invention of man cannot make them otherwise. The alchemist may cease his labors, and the hunter after the philosopher's stone go to rest, if paper can be metamorphosed into gold and silver, or made to answer the same purpose in all cases.
Gold and silver are the emissions of nature: paper is the emission of art. The value of gold and silver is ascertained by the quantity which nature has made in the earth. We cannot make that quantity more or less than it is, and therefore the value being dependent upon the quantity, depends not on man. Man has no share in making gold or silver; all that his labors and ingenuity can accomplish is, to collect it from the mine, refine it for use and give it an impression, or stamp it into coin.
Its being stamped into coin adds considerably to its convenience but nothing to its value. It has then no more value than it had before. Its value is not in the impression but in itself. Take away the impression and still the same value remains. Alter it as you will, or expose it to any misfortune that can happen, still the value is not diminished. It has a capacity to resist the accidents that destroy other things. It has, therefore, all the requisite qualities that money can have, and is a fit material to make money of — and nothing which has not all those properties can be fit for the purpose of money.
Paper, considered as a material whereof to make money, has none of the requisite qualities in it. It is too plentiful, and too easily come at. It can be had anywhere, and for a trifle."  - Thomas Paine

Ask Rule how that Atac Resources worked out for Sprott - ATC was a $10 bill when Sprott bought out Rule's Family Trust for some putrid amount - now the public and Sprott are BAGGED with ATC at $1.50. I guess Eric wants THAT trade back now, don't he?

While you are at it, check out how One Earth Farms is doing for Sprott Resources.  Great management fees... capital appreciation.. not too much.

Is Sprott finished fleecing those dimwits who bought PSLV at a premium to spot silver?

As one of those "dimwits" (and PHYS), I had little choice.  I use my own money to buy physical that I hold, but my equivalent to a 401K requires me to invest.  The paper silver ETFs are not trustworthy, and I wanted the geographic diversity to have some hope of reacting if US confiscation loomed.  Believe me, I worry about this and look for alternatives all the time.  I regret not moving all into RGR and SWHC after Sandy Hook.  However, my gut still tells me that TPTB cannot afford to suppress silver indefinitely.
