Presidential Candidate Ron Paul in his role as member of the House Banking Committee got a chance to question Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on the current state of the economy. 'Helicopter' Ben, as he is known in some quarters due to a reference he made in a speech to a statement made by Milton Friedman about using a "helicopter drop" of money into the economy to fight deflation, could be said to be at the opposite end of the monetary spectrum to Ron 'Gold' Paul (interestingly in the same speech Bernanke noted that "people know that inflation erodes the real value of the government's

Inflation and commodity investment

“Too much money chasing too few goods” – a basic, monetarist definition of inflation. In the long run, inflation is generally believed to be a monetary phenomenon, i.e. it is attributed to growth in the supply of money.

Gold Investments Market Update

Gold Gold was down $7.30 to $937.40 per ounce in trading in New York on Friday but silver was up 10 cents to $18.08 per ounce. Gold continued to weaken in Asia but has strengthened somewhat in early European trading and is trading at $934.10 per ounce. Another mooted IMF gold proposal (more below) may have led some weak longs to liquidate positions yesterday. But after recent week’s surge in gold and last week’s sharp (4.5%) increase in the price of gold, the market was overbought in the short term and ripe for a correction.
