From the insightful Peter Grandich: "And that brings me to the final piece of the puzzle that has made up the gold game since it first started trading freely in the 1970s: gold is, and shall always be, hated by the overwhelming majority of people who work in the financial services industry and the media that follows it. You’re never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to find universal overall support for gold because to do so would equate to undermining what drives the financial services industry worldwide – the buying and selling of financial assets. Just like you will never hear a Ford dealer tell you to buy a Chevy or an Atheist tell you to love Jesus, an industry that makes its living selling stocks and bonds isn’t going to tell you to load up on something that usually benefits from their misfortunes. And neither shall the media in general who lives off those selling stocks and bonds."
