by Dr. Jeffrey Lewis, Silver-coin-investor:
A slackening U.S. economy typically means that a slowdown in industrial demand for silver will soon be forthcoming. Nevertheless, the re-monetization of silver would more than take care of any such slump in demand.
Even if new supplies of silver are tapped, there is still a considerable premium associated with finding, buying back, smelting and refining the precious metal. Essentially, the physical market for silver would go completely off exchange.
Continuing strong investment demand in the face of falling prices — where a 60 percent price correction has already been seen — practically insures that this increasing component of the demand profile for silver will be like nothing anyone alive has ever seen.
