People don’t know where to put their money. [Those from Europe] don’t trust the euro system — they think the wheels might come off. They are buying physical gold. They are not buying equities. They are buying real estate and they are buying gold.
So says Pierre Lassonde in edited excerpts from an interview with King World News as provided by Lorimer Wilson, editor of www.munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!). This paragraph must be included in its entirety in any re-posting to avoid copyright infringement.
Lassonde concludes the interview (you can read the full interview here) by saying:
Personally, I’ve put some cash into the markets over the last couple of weeks because I think it’s just too good to pass.
As many of you know, my primary forecast regarding Europe is that the EU will be broken up and/or collapse within the coming months. The reasons for this are financial, monetary and political in nature [with much of the latter dependant on what happens in Germany. Let me explain.] Words: 516
