Paul in Fayatteville, Arkansas
What does “cheap money” mean?

David in Brentwood, TN
I have $200,000 worth of gold and silver bullion sitting in an IRA and a third party depository. I have seen some blogs, where people state anything in an account may be lost in the event of a Cypress-type bank default. Would it make sense for me to pull the money from the depository, pay the penalties and fines and physically hold the bullion in our home safe?

Andre in Fairfield, California
I understand that the Dollar is doomed to fail just like most fiat currencies have failed before. However, if the dollar is the world’s reserve currency and is a pure fiat currency, why would any other currency be a safe bet against a failing dollar?

Christina Rossi in Montreal, Quebec
Can interest rates remain low far longer than investors are expecting, like we witnessed in Japan’s bond market crisis of the 90’s? If not, what are the key differences between the bond market bubble in Japan during the 90’s and that of the current U.S bond market bubble?

Hady in Tunis, Tunisia
I am a Tunisian living in Tunisia. I want to buy some silver from our local market, but I don’t know which grade I should buy:

99.9% pure silver
95.8% British silver
92.5% sterling silver
90% coin silver
80% jewelry silver

What do you suggest?
