What Makes Goldman Sachs Majorly Bullish On Commodities

Commodities ended positively in 2016 for the first time in six years, so there should be further room to run.

Conventional wisdom says gold thrives under inflation and wilts under deflation. The case for gold under inflation is easy enough. Gold rises as the dollar falls. It’s the opposite under deflation.

The Real US Economy - A Full-Fledged Credit Crisis Is Inevitable

Hyperinflation In The US — A Real Or Imagined Threat?

After seeing the latest string of events unfold right before our eyes, many are pondering whether we may see hyperinflation hit the US shores.
