The History Of Silver
Silver has been regarded as a store of value and used as a currency for more than 4,000 years. The role of silver as a form of wealth preservation in a diversified portfolio is likely to grow as central banks suppress real interest rates to below zero while conducting large scale money printing operations.
Investors who harbor major doubts about the integrity of fiat currencies should continue to invest regularly. Despite being more volatile than gold, until governments regain control of massive fiscal deficits and central banks return to sound money policies, long term silver investment is a sound strategy.
