by Dr. Jeffrey Lewis, Silver-coin-investor:
Physical silver held in personal possession is a cheap option; an option being simply a choice. The best choices have a very low downside —and infinite upside. Options and optionality are not exclusive to financial markets.
Silver, mainly because its price is dominated by commercial investment bank goliaths, has massive asymmetry. It’s super cheap relative to its real supply and demand fundamentals. All it needs is a storm to disrupt that hold. That storm is inevitable.
Nasim Taleb’s recent book, “Antifragile”, examines the concept of optionality in his elaboration of the idea that anti fragile options are those that benefit or grow from chaos and disorder.
